The critic had claimed: ‘I’m really disappointed in your recent transition from body positivity to weight lost advisor.
‘I have the same figure you USED to have an am now left thinking I would be “happier” and “feel sexier” if I lost weight and looked as you do now.
‘It’s just an unhealthy message. At first I gave you the benefit of the doubt and felt you were doing it for you. Now you’re making money out of it. I’m disgusted and totally disappointed you have let so many young girls down.’
However, Alexandra hit back by referencing the message and saying: ‘The reason why in this life you have to do things for yourself and nobody else. People will always have something negative to say. What matters is your own happiness.
