Sarah Hyland talks about her health struggles as she reveals she weighs only 87 pounds
The actress also shared a screenshot from an app allowing her to track some of her body measurements
Sarah Hyland has always been open about her health struggles and is not afraid to let the world know that she suffers from chronic pain almost all the time. In a new Instagram post, the 'Modern Family' star shed light on how her health has been in recent times and it does not look promising.
“Skeletor party of 1," Sarah captioned a mirror selfie of herself on Instagram Stories on May 2. In the picture, Sarah gives her fans a glimpse of herself from the chest down, revealing her slim figure and thin legs. While some might think that Sarah was trying to show-off her long legs, the reality was far from what people believed. It all became clear when Sarah shared another picture which showed her body measurements and her weight.
The picture showed that Sarah weighed only 87.3 pounds. The image further revealed that her body fat of 18%, muscle of 17% and BMI of 16. “Desperately waiting to get cleared so I can start lifting weights again,” she wrote on the picture. The actress opened up about having a kidney transplant in 2012 and since then, she has often spoken about her struggles.
Earlier this year, Sarah also revealed that she was suffering from “chronic pain,” which she happens to continue till date. “For all of my invisible illness, chronic illness, chronic pain warriors — continue to do what you love,” she told her fans in the post. “Find what you love and focus on that because that is so much better than any type of physical pain.”
This comes after Sarah recently called herself "skinny fat" and denied that she was promoting anorexia. Back in February, Sarah had weighed herself and at that time it was revealed that Sarah was 92.8 pounds, 49 percent body fat. She shared the picture at that time with a caption that read: “Definition of #Skinnyfat or my scale is broken.” She then decided to address the issue about her weight when one of the fans commented that "she needs to eat a burger".
“I’d like to address something that has not only been brought up on Twitter but has been HEAVILY discussed by all of you in my Instagram accounts. That something is my weight. My circumstances have put me in a place where I’m not control of what my body looks like,” she wrote. “I am working hard to maintain my weight by eating as much protein as possible and continue to be STRONG and healthy. There’s no need to worry!”
