Ariel Winter Reveals Recent Weight Loss Is Due To The Right 'Combination Of Medicine'
"The change in medication instantly made me drop all of the weight I couldn't lose before.”
Ariel Winter has taken to Instagram Stories to reveal that her recent weight loss and journey with her mental health is all connected.
The Modern Family star told her fans the right "combination of medicine" is the reason she was able to shed the weight she'd been trying to lose for some time.
Ariel said her antidepressants caused her to gain weight "that I couldn't lose no matter what I did".
"It was always frustrating for me because I wanted to be able to get fit and feel like the work I was doing was paying off, but it never felt that way.
"I had accepted it and moved on. I stayed on those medications for so long because the process is really long and difficult."
"Last year I decided I was sick of feeling [eh] (had nothing to with weight), so I started the process again and was able to find a great combination of medication that works for me.
"The change in medication instantly made me drop all of the weight I couldn't lose before by just giving me back a metabolism. That was very unexpected."
She also added, "I feel better mentally with the change, and it's nice to work out and have your body actually respond."
In another Insta Story, she wrote:
"Mental health is INCREDIBLY important to me. Same amount of importance as physical health. Our mental health can influence our physical health!"
She revealed she'd been in therapy "every week for 6 years" also adding:
"It's a journey so I'm not all the way there, but I'm doing pretty good. I'm on a good combination of medications now that are finally working."
No doubt her many fans appreciate the star for being so open about her mental health struggles. We’re glad to hear she’s doing well!
