Marissa Jaret Winokur is proudly showing off her slimmer self in a new bikini pic.
In her pic, Winokur, 47, holds her mail-in ballot in the air beside a ballot box in Los Angeles. Her stars-and-stripes bikini top helped her spread her patriotic message, as did the festive red, white and blue pompoms on her headband and a face mask emblazoned with the word "VOTE."
The Broadway star captioned her photo with a "Hamilton" quote: "History has its eyes on you."
Winokur revealed her dramatic weight loss last month in a candid post on Instagram. She said she was inspired to get healthy when she realized she was high-risk for serious COVID-19 complications.
“I checked off all the boxes, I am HIGH RISK !” the “Dancing with the Stars” alum wrote next to before-and-after shots of herself.
A cervical cancer survivor, Winokur began working out over Zoom with Los Angeles-based trainer Keith Anthony. She also made changes to her diet.
“6 months later I have lost almost 50 pounds. We have been here before,” Winokur wrote, referencing her 60-pound weight loss in 2012.
“I was scared to post photos, it’s really one day at a time for me when it comes to food,” Winokur admitted. But in the end, she shared the images in hopes of inspiring others to take care of themselves during COVID-19 uncertainty.
The 4-foot-11-inch actor also acknowledged that losing weight doesn’t make her immune to COVID-19.
“But getting my self as strong as possible to fight it at least makes me FEEL like I am doing something,” she wrote. “It makes me FEEL like if I can kick cancers ass I can do this too. Thank you for always being a part of my YO-YO journey. I can only say Today I feel strong. Today I feel like I can do anything."
