Former "Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller shared a photo revealing her weight loss during her time in prison.

According to People, Miller pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud in June 2016. In July 2017, she reported to the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution in California to serve her 366-day sentence.

While serving in prison, Miller reportedly lost a significant amount of weight. According to Newsweek, she had gastric bypass surgery in April 2017 in order to lose weight. She has reportedly lost about 100 pounds since having surgery.

The former reality TV star shared a photo to her Instagram page, in which she posed with her visitors and can be seen looking noticeably slimmer. She wrote a lengthy caption to go along with the post.

"Sometimes in life you make mistakes I trusted the wrong people and didn’t pay any attention to things I should of," Miller wrote. "I’m more than sorry for the mistakes I have made."

She continued, "My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison. I did so with grace, the stories you read about me been a princess are untrue. I have made friends with both inmates and staff, I’ve tried to better myself, participated in anything offered to me and I am a better person for this experience."

Miller clarified that though it has been reported she will be released from prison on Feb. 20, this is not necessarily the case.

"I am feeling hopeful but no dates have been confirmed at this time," she wrote. "I am feeling great and ready to turn over a new leaf thank you so much to everyone for your support especially my nearest and dearest I love you all (and yes this is me in prison) #abbyleemiller #dancemoms #dance #aldc"

Miller did not address her weight loss in her post, but an insider source recently revealed that the reality star "isn't exercising at all in jail," adding that she "eats very little," according to Newsweek.

"She stays holed up in her cell and avoids going out into the public areas and engaging with the other women," the source said. "In fact she is rarely seen eating at all!"

Prior to entering prison, Miller expressed in an interview with People that she was nervous about being attacked while behind bars.

"I have to stay busy," she said in April 2017. "If I thought about it every day, I'd just sit around and cry."

Before having her gastric bypass surgery, Miller said that people around her questioned whether it made sense to have the surgery before being sentenced.

"I think this is the right time," she said at the time. "People are saying, 'But your sentencing is coming up in a couple weeks!' And that is true, and I'm really nervous about that -- more than the surgery -- but there's no right time."
