She added: "I have been working closely with Erik @theflexible.dieting.coach (whom I confess all my sins to lol) and training hard @novobodyofficial and getting all my strength back! You guys have kept me focused and made it fun!"

She also thanked her fiancé, musician Matthew Koma, for keeping her on the right track with his healthy homemade meals, writing: "It would be impossible without these guys and my home chef @matthewkoma. Thanks boys …"

Duff has recently surprised her longtime fans with the announcement that Disney is planning on a Lizzie McGuire reboot, which is set to launch on Disney's upcoming streaming service.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight after the announcement. "The whole cast is such a big part of the show and we have a lot of surprises in store for viewers. It feels very surreal, to be honest. I've been living with this information for a few months now, so it's been very hard to even contain my excitement."

She continued "She's such a big part of me and my life, and now she's 30, and I feel like I'm going to have to learn some of her quirky faces again. But I'm excited! I've been a big part of the process with Terri Minsky and the creative process of where [Lizzie's] been and where she's going and, really, it's a dream come true."
