Pretty Little Liars' Sasha Pieterse is just 19-years-old, but she's already dealing with some of the negative ways the media can treat women. Pieterse recently experienced some weight fluctuation and has apparently gotten a lot of flack about it. So she took to Instagram to address her haters head on. The actress shared an Instagram that reads, "I am currently under construction...thank you for your patience." Then, she used the caption space to explain exactly what that means for her. "As a lot of you have noticed my body has gone through some changes," she wrote in the caption. "I have been facing a bad hormone imbalance that has thrown my body completely out of whack." She went on to assure her fans that she's healthy and everything's cool. "We live in such a judge mental [sic] society that puts every kind of flaw, including weight gain, in the same category," she wrote. "And for those of you who are struggling with any health problem, hormone imbalance, and weight gain of any sort I urge and encourage you to please deal with it in a healthy manor [sic]." She reminded her fans that health isn't just about eating right, but "surrounding yourself with those who care about you and want to see you succeed and become the best you can be." And, as a role model for so many impressionable young women, that's an A+ message to send out publicly.
