Jazz, who was seen nodding during the conversation with her grandparents, seemed to agree with concerns over her weight, saying "I'm the first to admit when it comes to my physical health, I am not super healthy."

"I haven't lost any weight, but I do have high hopes for myself. I want to get healthy. I want to feel good in my body. I'm just gonna kind of just start eating healthier and hopefully I'll see improvement," she explained.

As OK! reported, Sander accused his sister of "lying to yourself" in a previous episode of the show after claiming that Jazz was "making excuses" to avoid prioritizing her health.

At the time, Jazz claimed that the pressure her family was putting on her was "negatively impacting" her mental health, causing her to feel like she was trying to lose the weight "for other people" instead of herself.

She decided to stop putting pressure on herself and instead focus on trying to lose weight in a more "natural" way.
