Married At First Sight star Elizabeth Sobinoff showed off her svelte figure in a throwback snap shared to Instagram on Wednesday.
The photo, which was taken around five years ago, has silenced many of her ‘skinny shamers’ because it proves that her weight has always fluctuated.
Many trolls had previously assumed that she’d only lost weight recently after being ‘fat shamed’ by Sam Ball on last year’s season of MAFS.

‘Flashback around 23,’ Elizabeth captioned the post.
In the photo, she looked slim in a black T-shirt and pants, and styled her long blonde hair loosely across her shoulders.
It comes after Elizabeth sparked concerns for her health earlier this month when she shared another snap to Instagram that showed her looking worryingly thin.

‘You so thiiiin,’ one follower wrote, while another commented, ‘You look so frail.’
‘I’m sorry I think you are amazing… but you were definitely a lot hotter with the extra weight… you look sick hope your healthy,’ a third fan wrote.
After appearing on Married At First Sight last year, Elizabeth lost 10kg and completely transformed her appearance.

It was assumed she had lost weight after being fat shamed by her ‘husband’, Sam.
But Elizabeth has attributed her weight loss to a variety of health conditions.
‘You will never see me talk about my supposed “glamorous weight loss secrets” but I will put myself out there to help defeat the belief that says you should be defined as a whole based entirely on your dress size,’ she told 9Honey in May 2019.
Slimming down: Fans have voiced their concern for Elizabeth Sobinoff, calling the Married At First Sight star ‘too skinny’ after her recent weight loss
‘I have been quite candid about how when I’m unwell I fluctuate in my weight.’
Elizabeth added that she ‘was at one of my heaviest weights I have ever been at’ while filming Married At First Sight season six.
She revealed in March 2019 that she suffers from two chronic health conditions: porphyria, a blood disorder, and autoimmune disease, which is a mild form of Lupus.
Speaking out: Initially, fans praised the former reality star for shedding the kilos, with Elizabeth addressing their comments in an editorial for 9Honey in May last year
‘I know there is a lot of comments thrown about saying sometimes I look sick, well, yes I struggle on a daily [basis]. I do the best I can,’ she explained
