She may be adopting a healthier lifestyle, but 90 Day Fiancé star Nicole Nafziger seems to be doing it for herself, not for Moroccan beau Azan Tefou. As we've seen on the TLC reality show, Azan has always been critical of his future wife's weight, even saying he's only "55 percent" physically attracted to his future wife.
"I want to be healthy, but I don't think I need to change myself for a man for him to love me," Nicole said on the show. "Because if he loves me, he should love me for who I am."
In the time since she filmed those painful episodes, however, it seems Nicole has begun her journey toward better health… and fans are noticing! "Nicole has completely changed her looks," observed reddit user CuriousJorge73, reposting a recent selfie of the reality star. "OK, not completely, but … her hair is a nicer blonde, her makeup looks good, and she's slimmed down! Girl, woman looks good, and she knows it! I'm happy for her!"
Plus, Nicole has been posting inspirational updates about her health on Instagram. On May 20, for example, she uploaded a meme image that reads, "Being healthy and fit isn't a fad or a trend. Instead, it's a lifestyle." In the caption to that post, she wrote, "Eating healthy isn't all about a 30-day challenge. It's a great way to get started, of course: Make a short-term goal to show yourself that you can do it. Just don't forget your long-term goal: a healthier lifestyle."
A day earlier, she posted a quote attributed to raw food advocate Ann Wigmore: "The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison." In her caption, Nicole said, "Making healthy changes is the best things you can do for yourself. What are you making for dinner tonight? I'm thinking veggie [chili] on top of a baked potato."
And Instagram commenters have been cheering her on. "I'm proud of you, Nicole," wrote Instagrammer servejonas. "Good for you, Nicole! One step at a time!" commented ekaterinashelehova. Let's just hope Azan is just as supportive... and giving her plenty of compliments!
