The Family Chantel star, Winter Everett, has lost more than 100 pounds. The former 90 Day Fiancé cast member has changed in many ways since then.
The Family Chantel star Winter Everett has come a long way from 90 Day Fiancé and was only known as Chantel Everett’s little sister; it’s all thanks to her weight loss journey.

The Weight Loss Barbie, inspired Winter’s weight loss journey. Winter went to a weight loss clinic in Tijuana, Mexico, where she underwent a gastric sleeve procedure. A surgeon removed 75% of Winter’s stomach. By March 2023, Winter revealed lost 100 lbs.
Winter Lost Weight & Gained Confidence
Winter was already gaining popularity as a plus-size advocate when she got the surgery. Her full figure had become apart of Winter’s identity. She was afraid she was going to lose her personality if she lost weight. Even though Winter is slimmer, she is still all about self-love and loving her body. Winter found more people to inspire by talking about her weight loss journey. Winter radiated self-esteem even if she wasn’t wearing any makeup in her workout videos from the gym.

He controlled her in many ways, including telling her what to eat and how to behave. Winter lives life by her own rules now. Winter has used her reality TV fame to secure her spot as a reliable influencer on the internet. Her 283k plus followers aren’t just her show fans. There are also people who may have come across her weight loss success on Instagram itself.
Winter Stopped Living In Chantel’s Shadow
Winter and Chantel have always been two very different people. There was a time when Winter was younger, and they weren’t as close. Winter was always compared to her sister. She hated her curly hair and made herself look different because she wasn’t Chantel. Being consistently compared to Chantel damaged Winter’s self-esteem. But not anymore; The Family Chantel season 5 cast member’s dedication to losing weight and embracing her body and appearance has made her step out of her shell. Winter is now just Winter and not Chantel’s younger sister battling insecurities.
