“One year later … when you silence the negative thoughts and listen to what your true heart is telling you, absolutely nothing can hold you back,” Chloe, who married husband Chris Long in February 2022, captioned a powerful Instagram post in March 2021, along with before and after photos of herself.
“I am so proud of how far I’ve come physically, but I am even more proud of how far I’ve come emotionally, mentally and spiritually,” the reality TV personality continued. “This has truly been a year of transformation — and I can’t wait to share everything about my journey with all of you. The good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful.”
Of course, Chloe’s Siesta Key costars were quick to praise all of her hard work. “This makes me so happy. What is so amazing is that you chose to work on yourself. No one else told you. You decided one day on your own that you wanted to change and that takes so much strength. You cut off things that weren’t benefitting you, including people. You are an inspiration!” Juliette Porter commented. “Beautiful,” Camilla Cattaneo added, while Brandon Gomes left a red heart emoji.
In an exclusive March 2022 video interview with Life & Style, Chloe gave an update on her weight loss journey. “Well, I think it’s one of those things … when you get in a relationship, you tend to be a little bit more comfortable, and I noticed that over the summer with Chris, you know, we were eating out a lot, but ever since we moved in together — you’ll see that on the show, actually — which was the end of September. Chris is like a super athlete,” she detailed.
“I mean, he’s currently running up and down the hill right now, and I think I’ve learned where instead of looking at it like a diet and just looking at it like a lifestyle, getting out in nature, doing something to move your body every single day is always gonna make you feel better,” she said. “I think everyone here can attest to, like when you don’t get a chance to work out or move your body or do something physical, it affects your mood so much literally.”
Watch new episodes of Siesta Key on MTV on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET.
