Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller shared an update on her health and wellbeing to Instagram on Sunday, writing that she is "feeling great and ready to turn over a new leaf" while serving time behind bars for bankruptcy fraud.
The snap, which features the noticeably slimmed down reality star in prison garb posing with visitors, is captioned, "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."
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Miller, who underwent gastric bypass surgery last April, has lost around 100 pounds since she entered the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution in California six months ago.
The publication also reports that Miller is planning multiple surgeries-including a tummy tuck, breast lift and excess skin removal-upon her release.
Miller, known for her notoriously harsh treatment of her tween dance students, was charged with attempting to hide $775,000 of income from Dance Moms and its spin-off, Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, plus several other projects, while she was filing for bankruptcy in October 2015.
She pleaded guilty to purposely hiding that income and, in May 2017, was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison and ordered to pay a $40,000 fine and serve two years' probation after her release from prison. However, a source told ET that she will be released from the Federal Correctional Complex in Victorville, California, on February 20.
In her Instagram post, Miller says, "All the press stories and speculation are not entirely correct however, I am feeling hopeful but no dates have been confirmed at this time."
