She looks totally different!
Being a celebrity comes with a lot of perks, but there’s also endless pressure from viewers and fans to look a certain way. Even though they’re reality stars, the cast members of Teen Mom have revealed that they often feel the need to look their best all the time. It’s no wonder that so many of them have turned to cosmetic surgery over the years.
But Chelsea Houska has gone the natural route when it comes to looking her best. Since the beginning of her Teen Mom stardom, she’s had two children… and she’s always managed to lose the pregnancy weight afterwards! Now she’s opening up with her secret of how she’s managed to lose fifty pounds over the years.
After Chelsea Houska gave birth to her second son, Watson, she was excited to start raising the newest member of her family. But she had gained more than just a son — she had also gained some noticeable pregnancy weight! Fans watched as Chelsea soon started to show off a leaner and more toned bod, losing the weight in a short while. Now she’s explaining how she managed to drop the pounds and keep them off.
“About a year ago, after I had my son. I wasn’t feeling great about myself and wasn’t feeling like myself in general,” Chelsea Houska explained on a recent Instagram post. “I decided to sign up for [weight loss program Profile] and make a lifestyle change.”
She explained that “Before I knew it, I was where I wanted to be AND feeling great. When I got pregnant again, i was so glad to learn that they also offer a program during pregnancy, with a goal of achieving a healthy pregnancy with the healthy weight gain that you need. My doctor has been so glad to hear that I’ve been following their plan and making it a priority to take care of myself.”
We all know that dieting can be tricky, but Chelsea explained that it got easier for her as the process went on. “Once you get through the first couple weeks, it’s easy,” she revealed. “Now it’s instilled in my choices. It’s not like I choose a bowl of pasta now. I always choose the healthier option. It’s habit.”
She revealed that her healthy choices are something she hopes will up her Mom game. “Soon I’m going to have two kids under the age of two and I want to feel good and have energy. It’s affected the way I feel about myself. Being on Profile affects my mood. If I want to go out and do things – I just feel good.”
Whole New Chels
“I definitely don’t want to come across as ‘you had a baby, you need to lose weight,’” she continued. “This is an option for people. It’s making healthy choices. It’s a lifestyle change, and it’s something I’m proud to be a part of.”
However, Chelsea has made it clear that she’s being paid to advertise for this weight loss service. Even though she claims that it’s how she lost weight, some fans aren’t happy with her choice.
“Shady,” wrote reddit user charcuterie_bored. “Seems like a typical d-list celeb money grab. I highly doubt she actually used this specific program to lose weight.” User beautiousmaximus wrote, “Idk going on a diet while pregnant is weird in every way.”
Many fans clearly believe Chelsea didn’t use this program to lose weight at all. “Why in the frack is Chelsea shilling a medical weight-loss program when she is pregnant? Like, we get it. You lost a ton of weight after Watson. Big whoop. But now claims it was this program (told her ‘fannzzzz’ it was keto) and is now pregnant shilling this?” wrote user makeupaddikt08.
Fans even worried that the products could be unhealthy during pregnancy, and that Chelsea could be inspiring others to try them despite this fact. “It p*sses me off that they shill this sh*t while pregnant. There’s no long term studies on this, so I wouldn’t risk taking it while pregnant but if people ask them they’ll say ‘oh yes it’s safe!’ Knowing d*mn well they aren’t really using it. Anything for an easy dollar.”
