WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- On her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, Ariel Winter related how shifting to a different medication led her to lose weight unexpectedly.
- Ariel, 21, also shared that before she altered medications, she stayed on to the first because she wasn’t ready to give them up yet.
- However, results quickly manifested once Ariel changed medicines, with her metabolism back to normal and shedding off the weight she could hardly lose before.
Finally, Ariel Winter is opening up about how and why she lost the weight, which by the way, has nothing to do with wanting to be thinner.
According to a post shared on Instagram Stories, the 21-year-old Modern Family star lost weight as a result of a change in her antidepressant medications. She wrote that being on antidepressants for six years has caused her to gain weight that she couldn’t lose no matter what she did.
She also stayed on with her first medications for a long time because she “wasn’t ready to go through the process of going off of antidepressants.” She added that instead of trying to look for or do something to feel better, she just accepted feeling ‘eh’.
However last year, tired of feeling “eh”, she was able to find a new medication that worked for her.
Instantly, she witnessed results. “[It] made me drop all of the weight I couldn’t lose before by just giving me back a metabolism,” Winter wrote.
Now, Ariel says that mentally, she is feeling a lot better plus “it’s nice to have your body actually respond.” She also shared that her next goal would be to add some muscle, get healthier and…. “I also want my butt back.”
This isn’t the first time Ariel’s addressed her weight issues. Internet trolls shamed her in July 2017 for wearing shorts that were way too small, while in early January, she dealt with body-shamers who filled her Instagram with nasty comments regarding her obvious weight loss. No matter, what matters most now, is Ariel seems mentally and physically happy and health.
