She worked very hard to lose the weight but social media followers have expressed their resentment over it.
As reported by Life and Style Mag, plus size model and TV Latina star Rosie Mercado shared an image of herself with a cutout of her previous self on January 3, 2017.
The model lost over 250 pounds in the span of two years through impeccable determination and hard work. She documented her weight loss journey by keeping her fans and followers updated on social media.
Despite Mercado's champion efforts, few people on social media criticized her for losing the weight that made her entry into the modeling world possible.
Mercado has been proudly flaunting her toned body without bothering much about her critics. Even though she lost a lot of weight, Mercado has not lost her curves.
The curvacious Mercado has always had a good sense of humor about her curves and even taunted Kim Kardashian for the size of her bottom. She uploaded a short video of her curves and posted it on her social media account.
Mercado was not in the mood of apologizing for her lifestyle. She admitted that she loved her previous self but loved her current self even more. She loved the freedom she had after succeeding in losing weight.
Most of her fans had been positive about Mercado's weight loss. However, there were a few followers who did not like the direction the model had chosen and even sent her hate mail.
"They told me to go jump off a bridge and kill myself for losing weight. I think it's a personal choice, and there's good and bad that comes with any life changes."

Mercado defended her lifestyle choices and said that, in such situations, one should let such negativity go and move forward with their own life.
