Last week, Nicole Nafziger affirmed that her relationship with Azan Tefou is stronger than ever, despite rumors to the contrary.
Over Thanksgiving weekend, she had a more personal announcement.
Nicole's weight loss journey has reached a point where she is flaunting her new figure in a bra.
Take a look at how amazing she's looking in the photos below:
Nicole Nafziger is looking great!
She has always been a strikingly beautiful young woman, but now the former 90 Day Fiance star is flaunting some impressive weight loss.
Let's start at the beginning
Thanksgiving was last Thursday, and Nicole was very active on social media over the weekend, including sharing a super precious pic of her with her young daughter, May. (And yes, the timing is very relevant to the weight loss pic that we're going to show you)
Nicole had a sweet message for her fans
"Happy Thanksgiving! From my family to yours! May your belly be full, your heart full of joy, and thankful for this day," Nicole captioned the Instagram photo.
She received warm replies
This reply came from Nicole's erstwhile castmate, Paola Mayfield. It's great to see friendly interactions on social media.
She also got some vile hate
"'May your belly be full,' yours certainly is!" exclaimed one absolutely monstrous comment. Some people should not be allowed to use the internet.
Haters are about to eat their words
It being right after Thanksgiving, there's a tremendous market for weight loss ads. While big stars like the Kardashians get justifiably shamed for showing off weight loss supplements that target people with disordered eating habits, we think that no one would begrudge a single mom who works at Starbucks for having a side hustle.
Take a look!
Most of us don't really feel at our slimmest after Thanksgiving, but Nicole is looking incredible. And while she's showing off her tummy, followers could not help but post some eyes emojis about that bra. Good for you, girl!
That's not all
Nicole had also posted a weight loss update before Thanksgiving -- again, this is a huge time for marketing weight loss supplements. If you have an eating disorder or feel vulnerable to one, it's a good time to stay off of social media or to use software to block ads.
Nicole is SO gorgeous
She is absolutely stunning in this magenta dress, which also shows off how much weight she has lost. To be clear, she was beautiful even before this weight loss journey.
Magenta isn't her only color
Nicole also STUNS in cobalt, as you can see in this still from an episode of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? that aired earlier this year.
Of course ...
The discussion of Nicole and weight loss goes back years on 90 Day Fiance, to when she was body-shamed by none other than her fiance, Azan.
He called her "lazy" more than once
90 Day Fiance fans were absolutely mortified as he body-shamed Nicole, encouraging her to exercise and pressuring her to change herself to please him. The "lazy" line might be overlooked -- maybe he misunderstood the connotations of the word because English is not his first language?
Other things could not be so easily dismissed
At one point, Nicole challenged Azan because he was pressuring her to change, and he flat-out replied that if she did not change for him, he might never move to the United States. (By the way, he has still not moved to the US, or even shared a plan for one day doing so beyond the very vague idea of eventually using a spousal visa)
This line was particularly horrific
On camera, right next to Nicole, Azan said that he was only "55%" attracted to Nicole -- his fiance. Quite frankly fans still repeat that line in disbelief, even though it's years later.
So Nicole's weight loss journey has been complicated
She has repeatedly affirmed that she is doing this body transformation for herself and for her health (and, let's be real, for the Instagram endorsement deals), but fans cannot shake that one line by Azan. If fans can't shake it, it has to be haunting Nicole, right?
Weight loss is complicated
Rapid weight loss can be both difficult to sustain -- with most people eventually regaining more than they lost in the first place -- and it can be straight-up bad for your health. The strain on your body can be worse than remaining overweight.
It doesn't mean that anyone is "lazy"
Genetics and nutrition play huge roles in weight gain, but almost everyone's body is hardwired to retain gained weight and to go into energy storage overdrive during rapid weight loss. More importantly, Nicole's body is her business. Nicole can find no shortage of partners who are 100% physically attracted to her as she is now, and as she was before this weight loss journey.
On the positive side
As we noted, Nicole is working at Starbucks, and snapped this group selfie to give her followers a Happy Holidays shoutout. There are a BUNCH of holidays over the next several weeks, so it's great that she was s inclusive.
In the mean time ...
As always, Nicole's world revolves around her daughter, May, who is too cute for words.
