“Last week, some people dragged me saying I look sickly. I’m honestly a size 12 [and] 180 pounds. There’s nothing skinny [about] me but my neck. I’m 5’8, however, so I sometimes photograph a little leaner than I am. But I ain’t skinny and that was never my goal,” Sullivan wrote. “My goal was to support my mother through her battle with cancer by going vegan with her and, in turn, it helped me as well. And I feel really good. I have a lot of things to work on in my journey and I’m not nearly the model for health and fitness … But I’m trying. And I’ll continue to do so with my momma! Bless y’all. Love y’all.”
Sullivan ended her Instagram story with a timely call to action, stating, “Stop talking ‘bout people. Vote in November.”
