Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska has been kicking around social media for years so her fans have been able to fully keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest happenings in her life. Chelsea Houska’s weight loss efforts, for example, have been of great interest to her followers and, luckily for them, the reality star has shared a lot of her health and fitness secrets.
While her Teen Mom 2 co-stars, like Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer, haven’t been as health conscious, Chelsea has definitely dedicated herself to living her best life when it comes to making healthy choices and getting regular exercise. When a fan asked her on Twitter in 2017: “How'd you get back in the best shape ever after baby? You look awesome,” Chelsea was more than happy to share her secret: “Omg girl. I'm on a strict/low carb diet, it was not easy! But I'm 10 lbs less than I was before I got pregnant, so it's been worth it!”
Early Instagram Days
Back in Chelsea’s earliest Insta posts, she looked great, no doubt, but consider this 2012 pic as a baseline to see just how much her body has changed with eating right and exercising.
By 2013, Houska was looking decidedly thinner in the face, as seen in this pic of her "kissyselfie." Maybe it’s just the duck lips, but she definitely had some sweet cheek bones going on.
Juicing for Success
Chelsea started taking to Instagram to show off some of her healthier choices, like this juicy combo of fruits and vegetables.
Chelsea also posted an example of the grilled protein and veggies she cooked for dinner to show fans an example of her food choices.
Slim and Trim
Chelsea looked crazy amazing in this 2013 mirror selfie, showing off just how much all those fruits and vegetables were agreeing with her.
Food Prep Made Easy
Chelsea shared the contents of a Blue Apron meal box she was trying out, which included meat and vegetables (all of which looked fantastic and yummy).
Chelsea may not have been seen so clearly in this pic, but the reality star was definitely living her best life, floating along in the pool, sporting a bikini.

Chelsea has showed off some of her impressive barbell moves in a number of videos on Instagram, including this one captioned “Squat cleans!”
The results of Chelsea's clean eating and workout efforts are clearly seen in this 2015 pic, with one fan commenting: “You are looking really good girl!! Keep up the hard work!!”
Legs That Won’t Quit
Chelsea may have been sharing some of the fun gifts she got for her kids, but fans were loving her muscular, strong legs.
Chelsea’s arms were equally impressive, as seen in this 2015 bikini pic—a reminder that all that barbell time she’d been putting in at the gym was working.
Nothing says that gym time is paying off quite like an amazing bikini pic and Chelsea proved that her workouts were yielding huge results.
Chelsea posted this video showing a different form of pull ups that she was trying to perfect, captioning the video: “Trying to switch from kipping to butterfly pull ups annnd I can't keep the flow going but in my defense this was AFTER the workout so I was pretty drained already.”
Chelsea’s commitment to fitness in gym pics clearly showed that she was putting in the effort and was getting stronger every day.
Can You Say Muscles?

Chelsea pulled up her shirt to reveal the waist trainer she had been using for two months. It’s not like she needed it, but it's nice that she shared all her little tips with fans.
Shake It Up
Chelsea also shared that she drinks protein shakes before she works out, yet another tip that her fans were glad to learn.
In this pic, Chelsea showed the waist trainer in action—sure, you can help you kid do homework and work on trimming your waist!
Though Chelsea has said she eats a low carb diet, she still had these carb blockers on the backup, as she noted: “Fighting carbs in 2016! Thanks @proteinworld.”
Chelsea might have been showing off a flat iron in this pic, but fans were plenty jealous of the Teen Mom 2 star’s fit body in a tank top.

Waist Training Winner
Does waist training work? Chelsea gave an update, writing: "It's been almost a year since I started waist training and I have lost so many inches around my waist!"
Yep, Chelsea clearly put in the work and saw the results, as evidenced by this 2016 pool shot.
