Cheryl Burke of "Dancing With the Stars" recently lost 15 lbs. She looks amazing but a lot of people think that she looked great before she lost the weight and now she is dealing with critics. On Friday, Yahoo shared how she is defending herself and wants everyone to know that she did it for herself.

She spoke out recently saying, "I’ve had a very public struggle with the press and their comments about my weight for a number of years now, but I want to make it clear that this isn’t about them. Yes, I have been hurt by their criticism, but I’m only human." It is hard to imagine why anyone would give her a hard time considering she looked so great regardless.

Burke shared that her weight still fluctuates from time to time. It wasn't all about making sure she hit a certain number on the scale but instead was about being healthy. She is now eating better and taking care of herself which is what is important to this dancer from "DWTS."
