Amara La Negra’s fans have been reacting to her dramatic weight loss.
The former Love & Hip Hop star posted a photo on October 23 in which she looks nearly unrecognizable. She captioned the pic, “When you See Me What Do you See?”
Back in April, Amara spoke with Telemundo’s Latinx Now! and revealed she lost 35 pounds due to stress.
“There was a lot of stuff going on in my life,” she said. “I love it! And to be honest, I embrace my stretch marks, my cellulite, my dimples my everything because I can still get it. So what’s the problem? What? I had a fan base that followed me because I was very curvy and I represented the Latinas and the Black beautiful women that were curvy and I get that part, but some part of that was a little bit unhealthy for me, personally.”
She added: “I’m not saying I won’t be able to get back into that, but this time around I kind of want to do it in the gym. To each its own. If you want to unfollow me because I’m not as thick, it’s ok my love because I’ll get a new fan base.”
Additionally, La Negra revealed the heartbreaking news that she suffered a miscarriage. On the latest episode of Love & Hip Hop: Miami she tells her mother that she is pregnant by boyfriend Allan Mueses. In a now-deleted Instagram post, La Negra said after her first missed period, she began experiencing “bad cramps.”
“I had no idea what was going on,” La Negra wrote, adding that she figured her symptoms were caused by noncancerous tumors in the uterus called fibroids. She also detailed about the miscarriage she experienced in July.
“I cried for days cause I really did want to have that baby!” read the caption. “I’m not getting any younger and I’ve always been afraid of waiting too long ‘til it’s too late. I had so many dreams and hopes that just bled out of me. My motherly and nurturing instincts kicked in, but it was too late.”
