Sharing a video of herself dancing in a multicolored bikini while showing off her sensational figure, she wrote on her Instagram, “‘You’re only funny when you’re fat, you can only make faces when you’re fat.'”

“What’s wrong with you? Are you saying that if my father had been skinny, he wouldn’t have been funny?
“It takes more than a little grease to make someone laugh!”
She added: “It’s as stupid as saying that big people are happy and skinny people are miserable.
“I’m not saying if you lose weight you’ll be happier, just much healthier.
“And you might definitely find it a little easier to shop for clothes. I’ve never felt happier, healthier and more confident.”
The doting mother-of-one, who just celebrated her son Noah’s first birthday, has reportedly lost four stones after changing her lifestyle.

She previously said, “I started this fitness journey with the goal of avoiding type 2 diabetes because I had gestational diabetes and was warned that I was still in danger after Noah was born.”
She added: “My dad had it and he died when I was just eight months old, so it really was a wake-up call to start getting in shape.”
Type 2 diabetes is a condition that causes blood sugar to be too high and can lead to stroke, blindness, heart disease, kidney failure, limb amputation, and early death.
