“That was the heaviest I had ever weighed,” she shared. “So many unfortunate situations surrounded me and my focus was directed outwards. During that time, my health was definitely not a priority.”
Winter said her “body was screaming out for help,” but she wasn’t sure where to start. However, in time, the Family Chantel alum set a fitness goal and altered her perspective. Before she knew it, the extra pounds came right off.
“In 2020, I completely changed my focal point. Instead of focusing on what I want, I tried to focus more on WHO I AM,” she added. “It was not an easy road, but I made it. It’s only down from here!”
After seeing her transformation, Winter’s brother, River Everett, showed her some love in the comments. “I’m so proud of you Winter [for real],” he gushed. “You look great!!”
It looks like inspiration is running in the brood, because Chantel’s husband, Pedro Jimeno, also recently showed off his chiseled abs after shedding 45 pounds.
On June 26, the TV personality shared a shirtless photo and update about how he obtained his six-pack. “7 months of hard work and commitment give results from 210 pounds to 165. Thanks to everyone for your support. Muay Thai [plus] intermittent fasting,” the 28-year-old wrote.
Pedro and Chantel, 29, were first introduced to fans on season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé, and they went on to share their journey on season 1 of their spinoff, The Family Chantel. The couple keeps their relationship off social media for the most part, but did confirm they are still together while appearing on the limited series 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined. In a May episode, they discussed the bright side of staying home amid the lockdown and coronavirus pandemic.
“[It’s] actually really nice, even though he’s doing his gaming and I’m doing my [nursing school] homework,” Chantel said. “Just being in the same area with somebody even if you’re doing different things is nice.”
Winter is clearly staying productive, too!
