Sarah Hyland is slowly getting back to her regular self and isn’t shy about showing off her progress. The Modern Family alum took to her Instagram Stories recently to show off her workout as well as her personal journey to health and wellness in the gym.
Hyland wrote, “very proud of this, seeing as I was 75 pounds earlier this year.” Her story on the ‘Gram comes not long after she revealed that she had been hospitalized in June.
On the 25th of June, Sarah said she had to pause filming her latest film, The Wedding Year, after becoming sick. The star said she was “torn” from her work “against her will.”
“Health should always come first,” the actress remarked. If you’re a fan of Hyland, you’ll know that she underwent a kidney transplant in 2012, and is often very outspoken when it comes to her medical problems.
Hyland’s fans appreciate her for, not only being honest about her personal battles, but also for sticking up for the little guy, or in the following case: the little girl.
Sarah co-stars with her younger peer, Ariel Winter, on Modern Family. Previously, the 27-year-old actress defended Ariel against social media trolls, who are often shameless in the way that they talk about her appearance.
Ariel is frequently the subject of critics who like to point out her body type, with some of them making inappropriate and sexual comments.
Hyland stood up for Winter, telling one of her followers that they should get back to their “blow up dolls” and also called them “pervs” for commenting on a young girl’s Instagram.
But Ariel’s no push-over either; she told her followers to leave “young girls alone” because they just want to live their lives, without being bothered by people online. However, some criticized Ariel for being purposefully provocative in her photos.
