FORMER Teen Mom star Mackenzie Edwards shocked fans after showing off her dramatic weight loss in a new pic.
The 24-year-old showcased her slimmer figure while posing for a snap posted to the Hotworz fitness studio's Instagram page.
Mackenzie exposed her toned arms wearing a white tank top while standing behind a desk holding up merchandise from the studio.
The Chatanooga, Tennessee health club captioned the post with a welcoming message to the ex reality star who recently became a member.
"Happy Monday Warriors and future warriors! ? Everyone meet our newest HOTWORX Chattanooga Member Mackenzie @mackedwards95 she joined the burn off movement and you should too ?? We are so excited and can’t wait to workout with all of you after the new year! #jointhemovement #hotworx #members #warriors #423"
Last summer, the mom-of-three revealed that she was putting in hard work with her fitness and nutrition after welcoming her daughter Stella Rhea in January 2020.
Aside from the now 11-month-old, Mackenzie also shares two-year-old son Jagger with husband Ryan Edwards, as well as son Hudson from a previous marriage.
Ryan is also dad to son Bentley, 12, with ex Maci Bookout.
With three children of her own, the Teen Mom revealed in an Instagram post that it's important for her to now take her health seriously and improve her fitness and nutrition.
Fans have been having trouble believing how “unrecognizable” Mackenzie’s been looking lately, as she’s lost “a lot” weight since her early days on Teen Mom and more again after her latest pregnancy.
A few days prior, she shared a new mirror snapshot of her slimmed-down figure, dressed in tight blue Lululemon leggings, a grey tanktop and a bandana headband from Target.
In the caption, she shared that her “why” for getting up in the morning and pushing forward in her journey, which has led to a tinier waste, thinner face and more toned arms, is her kids.
She wrote: “Why do you want to be a better you? Or why do you not? Why do you stand up for what you believe in?
“We all have to answer these questions. It’s up to us to decide why we want to do things.
“My ‘why’ is my family and my children. Be better. Be stronger. Be you. That’s my ‘why.’”
She received a slew of comments from Teen Mom fans asking for more information on her weight loss and her process.
“Gluten/dairy free, did a food sensitivity test, reverse dieted out of keto into moderate carbs,” she told one followed who asked about her daily diet.
She added that she’s been eating “specific macros” and lifting heavy weights to shape up her body.
Mackenzie also told everyone it’s “definitely important” for her to teach her daughter to have a healthy relationship with herself and with food.
Teen Mom lovers could't believe how “extremely different” Mackenzie looks from how she did over the years, especially from throwback clips from the MTV reality show.
Ryan’s wife, who is also working as a brand partner for a water company, posted a photo of herself in short shorts and a slinky crochet tank top, showing off her thin face and toned shoulders.
“Business in the front, laundry in the back lol,” she wrote, before showing off some of the new workout clothes she recently received.
She also showed off her slimmed-down figure while lounging out in a bikini, just six months after giving birth.
One Redditer was so stunned by the before and after transformation of the TV personality that they asked other users: “So very different. Is it just weight loss?”
Fellow Teen Mom OG fans used this as an opportunity to compliment Mackenzie on the dramatic changes.
'WORKED FOR HER'
They said she looks “so great” and “pretty,” with one noting that sometimes a woman’s appearance can change “rastically from 21-30 and it seems like that is very true for Mack.”
One recalled: “I remember showing my bf the photo on the left a while ago and asked how old he thought she was….he said 45.
“She definitely lost a ton of weight and looks extremely different now, more her age.”
Others believe it’s a combination of weight loss, photo composition and digital tools that make her look so good in her new pictures.
A Reddit user suggested: “Weight loss and angle. One is kinda candid, the other is a mirror selfie. My posture is never better than in a mirror selfie lol.”
Another wrote: “Filters and photoshop are also helpful. She always looks way different on the show compared to the photos she posts.”
Some don’t care what it is, just that “it definitely worked for her.”
