Abby Lee Miller Shows Off Huge Weight Loss Following Early Prison Release Rumors


Despite being cooped up in a jail cell, Abby Lee Miller is living her best life.  

The former "Dance Moms" reality star has given another update from behind bars, this time, sharing her dramatic weight loss.

While Miller's fears of being "physically abused" have been put to rest, she has been struggling with being cut off her beloved dancing community.

"Starting to get so so bored," Miller wrote on Instagram. "I don’t function without dance."

After pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud in June 2016, Miller said it took her a while to fully adjust to life in the slammer, but has decided to make positive changes to her life, which included losing weight.

"Sometimes in life you make mistakes I trusted the wrong people and didn’t pay any attention to things I should of. I’m more than sorry for the mistakes I have made," Miller wrote on Instagram.

"My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison," she continued. "I did so with grace, the stories you read about me been [sic] a princess are untrue. I have made friends with both inmates and staff, I’ve tried to better myself, participated in anything offered to me and I am a better person for this experience."

Losing an estimated 100 pounds hasn't been the only good news for Miller, as rumors have been swirling around she'll be released earlier than expected.

Prior to her prison term, Miller said she was dedicated to take the necessary time required to improve her health.

"I've always put everybody else's child first before my own health, before my own outfit, before my own time frame," she explained. "Everybody else was dressed and out the door and looking perfect and I was running around trying to find a clean towel to take a shower with, so I think this will be a little 'me' time."

And within six months time, her new look is already showing.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Miller is set to be released on February 20th, nearly six months early from the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution.

A source close to Miller said upon release, she will have to report to a halfway house in Van Nuys, California, abiding by the terms of her sentence. However, it's unknown how long she'll be required to stay.  

However, Miller said the rumors have yet to be confirmed.  

"I am feeling hopeful but no dates have been confirmed at this time," Miller also included in her Instagram caption. "I am feeling great and ready to turn over a new leaf thank you so much to everyone for your support especially my nearest and dearest I love you all."

Do you think Miller should be released from her 366-day jail sentence early?
