Jenelle Evans responds to weight gain, claims she wanted the extra pounds

Back in June, when Jenelle Evans first began dating her current boyfriend Nathan Griffith, she took up working out. Although she wasn't necessarily out of shape, she adopted the hobby and seemed to really enjoy being healthy. She even began eating healthier.

However, it hasn't lasted.

Now, she and Nathan seem to do a lot of hanging out, and not much else, which has led Jenelle to add a decent amount of weight. While months ago, the Teen Mom 2 star was fit and in shape, she now seems a bit chubby, at least more so than fans have seen her in the past.

Still, Jenelle is happy with her size and recently took to Twitter to let fans know that the weight gain was actually intentional.

"I loveee how my body looks," Jenelle told fans in the wee hours of the morning on December 5. "I wanted to gain weight is what everyone didn't realize. I turned into skin and bones, it was disgusting."

Then, when someone accused her of being fat, she defended herself once more, saying, "I got thick, not fat by any means. But yeah my a** has always been big, just lost lots of weight when I was doing heroin."

Unfortunately, some fans didn't seem to agree. One told Jenelle, "lmao there's a difference between 'thick' and fat. And you're def not thick." Another said, "That's what weed does to u. #munchies." A third was more brutal, pointing out that Jenelle has "no a** but a gut."

While Jenelle may have been too thin when she was using heroin, that was over a year ago and she has since looked completely healthy. She certainly did not appear to be "skin and bones" or in need of extra pounds.
