How 90 Day Fiancé's Ariela Weinberg's Weight Loss Changed Her Life & Image

Popular 90 Day Fiancé star Ariela Weinberg's life and social media image have changed for the worse since she dropped her baby weight. The 31-year-old reality star first appeared in 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, where she was pregnant with Biniyam Shibre's baby. At the time, Ariela was a confident young woman, and most viewers found her extremely relatable. However, she has completely altered her figure, and changed her appearance drastically over the past year. The most notable aspects of Ariela's transformation are her massive weight loss and various cosmetic procedures, including Botox and fillers.


During 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 3, fans noticed how Ariela had started to look quite different from her usual self. Soon enough, she posted a gorgeous photo of herself on Instagram, surprising her fans with her postpartum transformation. At the time, the season 9 star revealed that breastfeeding her baby helped her to lose weight. In another Q&A session on Instagram, the 90DF cast member Ariela shared that she had lost 50 pounds since she gave birth to her son, Aviel Shibre.

While Ariela's postpartum transformation has been dramatic, the difference in her personality has completely baffled fans. As most people know, a healthy fitness routine usually correlates to a less anxious, more upbeat mindset. Weight loss may also give a person more energy, and boost their overall motivation. However, in Ariela's case, things are different, as she became more stressed after weight loss. When Ariela debuted on the show, she was heavily pregnant, but still fearlessly traveled to Ethiopia to deliver her baby. At the time, viewers called her brave for making such a bold move for the sake of her beau. However, the same fans called Ariela lazy when she recently appeared on 90 Day Fiancé season 9, and openly worried about paying bills.

In the previous seasons, the New Jersey native Ariela confidently lived in Ethiopia despite the language barrier, cultural differences, and financial problems. However, after the weight loss, many viewers have noticed her new excessively prideful behavior. It seemed like she wanted everyone to treat her like a princess after she slimmed down. Her pre-weight loss persona was extremely likable, relatable, and at times inspiring, and fans praised her for it. However, Ariela's enthusiasm has taken a hit after she transformed her looks. In 90 Day Fiancé season 9, viewers saw Aviel's mom hesitate to find a job in America, although she knew that Biniyam didn't have a work permit.

Ariela's social media image changed after weight loss. At the beginning of her reality TV career, viewers praised her thoughtful perspective about everything in her life. She became a cast member that some people looked up to. People appreciated that she wasn't flashy. However, 90 Day Fiancé fans now think that Ariela has become annoying and unemotional, after transforming her looks through weight loss and cosmetic procedures. Usually, viewers show their admiration when cast members work hard to achieve their fitness goals. However, Ariela failed to receive such appreciation. In fact, she now receives massive backlash from 90 Day Fiancé fans online, over practically every choice she makes.
