Julia hit back at 'thin haters' with a new photo

A second wrote: "For years I was 7 stone which people believed gave them the right to comment on my weight. The worst one was 'painfully thin'. Now I'm 10 stone, people think it's a compliment to say, 'have you lost weight, you look healthy'. Do not ever comment on people's weight!"
