Tami Roman responded to comments regarding her weight via Instagram Thursday, silencing her critics.

The basketball wives star said in a caption, “I didn’t lose weight, I lost my willingness to die. DIABETES IS NO JOKE!”

She has had diabetes for years. Since she debuted on Basketball Wives in 2010, Roman has continued to slim down. Within the last year, however, some viewers believed she slimmed down too much. The weight loss has left many with questions and fans voicing their concerns. Roman’s photos have recently been riddled with concerned comments on her weight and other insults.

Tami Roman has been dealing with comments like these for years. She responded to weight comments on instagram in 2014 saying, “I have to hear how skinny I am on EVERY post. I am not trying, I have diabetes and this is just my world right now. I am fine and dealing with my illness accordingly. If you can’t handle me this way, please unfollow, because I don’t want to be reminded of something I already know and have no control over.”

Though people still seem to be overly concerned about her body, she seems to remain unbothered by those comments and working toward a happy and healthy lifestyle for her.

We salute you Tami in choosing your health. You are an inspiration to diabetics and those with chronic health issues and taking control. Keep up the good work sis!
