Cheryl Burke recently responded to criticism over her 15-pound weight loss.

Although Burke debuted her healthy bikini body in mid-May, the Dancing With The Stars pro still has her critics, and according to a new report, spoke out this week on Facebook, addressing the negative comments she's received since her bikini body reveal.

"My weight fluctuates, just like any other person's does, and there will always be critics," Burke wrote. "You've got to tune out the other people and tune into what's going on inside. Love yourself. Nourish your body. Be kind to one another."

On May 22, after wrapping up the 18th season of Dancing With The Stars, Burke debuted her 15-pound weight loss with PEOPLE Magazine, posing in two bikinis and sharing details about her slim down. In the report, Burke revealed she had been dieting and exercising her way to a smaller frame.

During her weight loss journey, Burke had the help of her friend, Leah Remini, whom she met on Dancing With The Stars. Because the two lived close to one another, they were able to serve as each other's motivator and often worked out together. Burke also credited her trainer Brendan Johnston for motivating them both with a circuit-training regimen.

"We'll run a mile on the treadmill, then get off and do biceps, triceps, squats, and repeat that about three times," she explained. "Then we'll do abs towards the end. It shocks your body more than if you were just on a treadmill for three miles."
