Aaron Carter has revealed the first peek at his self-care transformation.

The singer posted to Instagram on Saturday (Oct. 7) a before-and-after photo showcasing his recent weight gain, captioned, “From 115 pounds to 145 In a few weeks. On the left 115 on the right 145. Continuing to focus on myself and my health. Sorry I couldn't wait to show you till 2018 #proudofmyself #StressFree I missed you all so much. Needed some time to heal and this is a direct result.”

Carter had checked into rehab on Sept. 22 to “improve his health and work on his overall wellness,” according to publicist Steve Honig, checking out a short two weeks later on Oct. 6. Upon checking in, Carter had tweeted determined messages, saying, “Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.”

While he had later said that he’d be disappearing from the social media world to work on himself, Carter made a quick return with Saturday’s Instagram post.

Back in August, Carter came out as bisexual through a heartfelt note on Twitter. At this time he shared a similar hopeful message for his own future, saying on The Bert Show, “All I can say is that I’m really looking forward to the future right now, and whether I choose to be with a man or woman is my decision, and no one else’s.”
