Woman fights back at haters after she posts bikini photo celebrating her weight loss

A woman is fighting back against haters after a picture she posted to her personal weight loss Facebook page garnered nasty comments.

Shantell Bennett posted a photo of herself in a two piece bathing suit showing off her 110 pound weight loss first to her weight loss Facebook "Beauty and the band" and then to her personal Facebook page.

She responded to a critic who suggested that she only wear one-piece bathing suits.

I had no intentions of ever sharing this photo anywhere else other then my weightloss blog Beauty and the band but after...

Shantell wrote in part, "So yes I will wear this pineapple bikini with nothing but PRIDE because I AM beautiful, every stretch mark and roll. It is sad that I had to lose 50kg to realise that my worth is NOT dictated by other people and their opinions of me."

Since posting, she has garnered support from other users.
