She’s on a mission! Bristol Palin sparked controversy after sharing her before and after weight loss pics, because several fans felt she looked perfect already. The Teen Mom OG star gave an update on her fitness journey, showing off her progress from July 4 to September 15. Watch the video above to see her weight loss photos.
“My next post is a little embarrassing, but completely felt in my heart this morning that I should share…but warning! A. I’m a complete work in progress and God is working in me everyday to become the best version of myself for my kids. B. I want to share to show what happens when you truly start to love, care, and respect yourself,” Bristol captioned her first Instagram Story, prior to sharing her before and after pics.
Bristol then showed off her transformation, wearing a sports bra and gym pants in both snaps. The reality star, 27, put her toned abs on display in the side-to-side pics, and flaunted her trim figure. “If I can chip away at it, so can you,” the mother-of-three wrote as her caption. Some fans are worried she’s trying to shed even more pounds in the coming months, while others felt she was humble bragging…but she does look great!
“Lol what!? Honestly there isn’t even much difference, the right photo just looks like it could be a ‘better’ angle. She has a rockin bod in both pictures stop with this madness!” one fan commented on Reddit. “THIS is the kind of crap that makes people feel like they’re not good enough. If one is larger than your ‘before’ pic, should they feel embarrassed too, Bristol? Get outta here with that bulls–t,” another chimed in. A third wrote, “Geez I hate a humble brag.”
One more even commented, “Chip away at it? Girl, if you lose anymore weight you could be in unhealthy territory.” Some were defending Bristol on the other hand, saying that people shouldn’t skinny shame her either. Bristol started her weight loss journey while appearing on Dancing With The Stars. After giving birth to her daughter Atlee, she updated fans in 2017.
“This postpartum weight loss journey has been tough to say the least,” she wrote via Instagram at the time. “Consistency and hard work is paying off. Losing this much weight has become so much less about the numbers on the scale, and more about the feelings of confidence to step out of the comfort zones I can be so stuck in.”
Fans are already looking forward to next month, when Bristol will be making her highly anticipated debut as one of the new cast members of Teen Mom OG. We’re going to get an inside look at her day to day life with Atlee, Tripp, 9, and Sailor, 2. Viewers will also watch Bristol’s marriage to her husband Dakota Meyer, 30, fall apart, and it looks like there will be plenty of drama. Despite the naysayers, Bristol seems to be focused on her well-being!
