SEE IT: Maks & Val Chmerkovskiy’s Mom Lost 80 Pounds In 4 Months

Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy’s mother, Larisa Chmerkovskaya, is on a weight loss journey after a doctor’s appointment left her with no choice but to get serious about her health.

Maks, who is no longer on “Dancing With the Stars,” shared on Instagram about his mother’s story, praising her for clinging on and taking care of herself.

“After many years of focusing on everyone but herself, and being consistently overweight for decades, her problems finally took a turn for the worse when she found she was one step away from diabetes. She was on medication faster than she could ask what had happened.” and started spiraling out of control in the world of tests, medical statements, endless prescriptions and “conditions,” Chmerkovskiy wrote on a Reel he shared on Oct. 5, 2022.

“It all got worse when she realized it’s almost entirely up to her whether she’ll ever get better,” he continued.

Here’s what you need to know:

It is clear that both Maks and Val are proud of their mother and they are very grateful to her for everything she has done for them. Plus, the brothers are fully behind her new health goals.

“My mom dropped 80lbs in four months and we started working out in the gym. She’s tough, determined and damn strong, and I’m so incredibly proud of her!! For the first time IN DECADES, she’s really motivated to her body AND HER LIFE under HER control,” Maks continued.

“She still has a long way to go before she is her best self, but she is already so light-hearted and can almost outrun her grandson,” Maks added.

Val stopped by in the comments section of the post to encourage his mom. “Verified
Let fuggggin Gooooooooo!!!!!!” Val wrote, and added a series of red heart emoji.

Meanwhile, Val’s wife Jenna Johnson called her mother-in-law her “fitness queen” and Maks’ wife Peta Murgatroyd added: “Mommy on [fire]”, using three flame emoji.

Based on Maks’ video compilation of his mother’s hard work, she’s been doing cardio—for example, walking outside with free weights—as well as doing some strength training.

Chmerkovskaya mixes things up, spends time in the gym and also goes outside for some of her workouts.

Several fans responded to Maks’ post, praising his mother and noting how inspiring she is.

“Thank God, what an achievement! go mom! Would like to know what steps she has taken to get the weight off. What an inspiration,” read one comment.

“As mothers, we tend to put our own needs, health and desires in the background. Our focus becomes our children, our work, our families. I’m glad your beautiful mother is finding herself again,” someone else added.

“Your mom is giving a WHOLE NEW MEANING to BEAUTY and the Beast (all in a GOOD WAY)!!! WOW just WOW! She is beautiful and powerful (BEAST). And she was just ashamed to take my health seriously again!!!” said a third Instagram user.
