The reality star, 25, knew she needed to make a change after she couldn't keep up on a ski vacation last year, but splitting from her ex-boyfriend solidified her decision. "There was kind of a moment — literally on a mountain in Aspen — where I was struggling skiing and tumbling down it and that was a moment where my physical transformation started," Trautman told E! News. "I was 50 pounds heavier than I am right now and I was like, 'I need to get healthy.' And then my ex and I broke up in June of last year and that was really when the bigger shift started happening." Trautman decided to go vegan and give up alcohol, along with increasing her workouts. "I've been sober curious for about a year now and you'll see that journey on the show, but I think the biggest thing is just being as active as possible," she said. "Working out, doing yoga, going for walks, going for bike rides and not eating processed foods." MTV's Siesta Key Renewed for Season 4 — and Will Film at an International Resort Chloe Trautman.
