There have been a whole lot of changes for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra these past several months, right?
And as you likely know, not all of them have been good.
Last fall, they decided it was time to expand their family, and Catelynn actually did get pregnant pretty fast. Unfortunately, she suffered a miscarriage shortly after announcing the news to her family (and to the Teen Mom OG film crew).
She's dealt with depression and anxiety for years, and the miscarriage sent her into a tailspin that resulted in two separate six-week visits to a treatment center in Arizona.
In March, she left her second rehab stint, and she's been home since -- and thankfully, it seems like she's doing much better these days.
As for Tyler, who struggled with his own grief over the miscarriage on top of holding down the home and family clothing business while Catelynn was gone, it looks like he's been feeling a lot better too!
Judging by a new photo he shared on Instagram, he's looking a lot different, too!
"Hard work is paying off!" he captioned the photo. "It's been 6 months since completely changing my eating habits, I dropped 40lbs & now it's time to cut it all up with these workouts, BOOM!"
He added the hashtags "crushing these personal goals" and "it feels great," which is nice.
Then, as you can see in the photo (because of the text and also because of the evidence), he's already seeing progress with his ab muscles.
Tyler has never been a heavy guy, quite the contrary -- he's always been pretty skinny.
But sometime in the past year or so, his metabolism did seem to slow down, and he started looking a little fuller in the face, which he himself frequently mentioned on social media.
Back in October, he announced that he had "a major dadbod," but that "I just haven't decided if I care yet hahaha."
Around New Years though, like so many of us, he decided he did care, and he switched up his diet.
He started dropping weight fast -- by the beginning of February, he said that he was already down 35 pounds.
Judging by this new post of his, the goal was to lose 40 pounds altogether, and now that he's done it, he's going to start working on building muscle.
And judging by the comments on the post, a whole lot of his followers appreciate what they're seeing.
An insane amount of people complimented his looks here, which is more than fair -- as we've said, he's obviously looking good.
"Taking dad bod to a whole new level!" one commenter joked.
"Good job Tyler," another wrote. "Besides getting back into shape, exercise is so important for mental stability. I applaud you."
That's a good point, because on top of all the bad feelings brought on by the miscarriage, we know that he was also diagnosed as bipolar recently.
He's said that he wanted to try working on things naturally before starting on any medications, and while there's definitely no shame if he ends up needing meds, exercise and a healthy diet certainly can't hurt.
Let's see, what else ... a ton of people admitted that they thought Tyler was Justin Bieber at first when they saw this photo in their Instagram feed, which is hilarious but understandable.
Of course, things couldn't be all positive and lighthearted for long -- plenty of his followers felt the need to tell him that Catelynn should be the one working out instead.
Some even suggest that he should leave her. Because of abs.
Somehow, we doubt that will happen, and even if it did, this isn't a story about Baltierra divorce rumors.
It's a story about how Tyler is feeling himself, and rightfully so.
