There has been a lot of talk over Jennie Garth’s recent post-divorce weight loss, but the former “90210” starlet is refusing to be bullied.

The 40-year-old recently split with “Twilight” star Peter Facinelli and has slimmed down a good bit, but while some have criticized her slender frame, Garth is speaking out, explaining how the emotional stress that comes with a divorce sometimes takes a toll on a person.

“I’ve been certainly going through a transitional time in my life,” Garth explained to “ET.” “And I think anybody who has been through something like what I’m going through and have been going through for the past couple years, can definitely relate that your body changes with your emotional state of mind sometimes. I think a lot of women can relate to that.”

While Garth is by no means ultra thin, as always, there will be haters.

For now, the mother of three is trying to maintain a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables in order to set a good example to her girls: Luca, 15; Lola, 9; and Fiona, 5.

Garth and Facinelli separated on Jan. 1 after 11 years of marriage and officially filed for divorce in March.  Since then, Garth has come a long way and has been healing emotionally and is even open to the idea of dating again.
