Teen Mom 2 star Kail Lowry is hoping to be “a little bit slimmer” before she turns 30 and is trying to find the motivation to get back to the gym.
Kail has been open about her struggle with weight gain in recent months.
The reality TV star embarked on a fitness journey earlier this year and shared that she had lost 12 lbs. back in September.
However, Kail has admittedly fallen out of her fitness routine and now she’s hoping to get back to it before her 30th birthday.
Teen Mom 2’s Kail Lowry trying to find motivation to hit the gym again
Kail took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday, Dec. 23 to share that she’s hoping to get back into a healthy routine ahead of the new year.
“I’m starting back at the gym today,” Kail said during her video along with text that read, “let’s try this again 😭” with a gif of a rabbit wearing a sweatband and lifting a barbell.
However, Kail admitted that she’s having trouble getting motivated.
“I don’t want to and I definitely don’t feel like it but I’m gonna try,” Kail said. “I actually feel like my entire adult life is me trying to motivate myself to get back in the gym.”
“Staying motivated is tough & then once I’m off my schedule once, it just spirals,” Kail admitted in a text box at the bottom of her video slide.
The Teen Mom 2 star continued, “So, if I could just stick to it this time, I might be able to go into 30 in March – my birthday’s in March – maybe a little lighter, a little fitter, a little slimmer, I don’t know.”
Kail added text and mentioned that she just wants to “go into my 30s feeling good & confident esp in a bathing suit.”
“Anyone else just like, have a love-hate relationship with the gym and can’t stay motivated enough to stay in but like you wanna go but then like you don’t feel like going?”
Kail then surveyed her followers with a question box, asking them to vote either “Yes” or “SAME” along with the text, “like you want to go but you don’t feel like it. But it sounds good but just don’t want to do it 😭.”
Kail Lowry has been fat-shamed because of her weight
Kail’s weight has become a topic of discussion on Instagram as well as her podcasts, Coffee Convos and Baby Mamas No Drama.
The 29-year-old mom of four was diagnosed with PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome, which can cause women to gain weight.
Although Kail mostly blames PCOS for her weight gain, Teen Mom 2 fans and critics have felt that she uses her diagnosis as an excuse.
Kail has been fat-shamed on several occasions. Back in May, she talked about being called a “pig” and “cow” by her haters and how it affected her self-esteem.
Kail’s ex and baby daddy, Chris Lopez, seemingly took a jab at her weight when he insinuated that she needed to run as much as she “runs her mouth” and she shared the text on her Instagram Stories.
Kail’s commitment to restarting her fitness routine comes on the heels of her nemesis and Teen Mom 2 castmate, Briana DeJesus, sending a treadmill to her, which she took as another attempt to fat-shame her.
However, Briana’s attorney addressed her mailing a treadmill to Kail and denied that Briana had any ill intentions by sending it, calling Kail “petty” for thinking she did.
Teen Mom 2 is currently on hiatus.
