In the post, she said the negative talk following the Season 15 finale reminded her of a toxic situation she found herself in years before.

“It didn’t take long before the voice of a boy I loved started diminishing my self-esteem. His voice told me I wasn’t enough and I believed it,” she said. “I started listening to a louder voice than my own, and in turn, I lost the person I loved being.”

She added that the “hurtful” comments about her weight loss on Biggest Loser took her to a similar place as “people tried to bring me down and privately succeeded.”

But once she took time to again focus on herself and realize her worth, Frederickson said she eventually found peace with the situation and is now more confident.

“There will always be other voices in life. The trouble comes when you stop listening to your own. I am committed to trusting my decisions and standing strong behind them. I found strength in this struggle and I am listening to my own voice again!” she said.
