To those who aren't familiar with the subject of today's story, allow us to reintroduce you to Kristel Moreno. The former SexBomb member's lovely curves made it easy for us to put her on the cover of our April 2010 issue...

...and last year's FHM Ladies' Confessions: Celebrity Diaries Vol. 7. Kristel even landed on the upper half of the 100 Sexiest Women poll back in July, so it goes without saying that she's quite a knockout.

Our latest brush with Kristel was during the Star Magic Ball last September, where she wore a see-through gown that bared most of her goods. We gave her outfit a two thumbs up, but unfortunately for Kristel, the Internet didn't seem to agree.

She was included on several worst-dressed lists, and endured quite a bit of bashing from local netizens.

The worst of 'em trolls poked fun at her apparent weight gain.

Her supposed "lack of upbringing" and "bad taste in fashion" were even brought up.

They also claimed that Kristel was merely trying to resurrect her sputtering showbiz career, which she miserably failed to do so.

Her world crushed and her feelings hurt, Kristel took to Instagram to address her bashers. "I'm sorry that you were so grossed out that you felt the need to create a Facebook page to [express] your thoughts," her post read. "I'm not sorry if you think that I'm fat because I know that God created me in His own image and that in His eyes I'm perfect."

"Sa totoo lang po, parang hindi ko siya pinapansin," she revealed to TV Patrol days after the event. "Pero pag-uwi ko, kinabukasan, hindi ko na napigilan, eh. Kahit paano, ang sakit, naiyak talaga ako. Kasi yung ibang comments parang sobra naman. Hindi na itsura ko yung nilalait, pagkatao ko na, na hindi naman nila ako kakilala."

But instead of succumbing to all the hate that came her way, Kristel decided to turn things around by getting back in shape. For starters, she spent the last two months running and playing badminton.

She stayed away from sweets, carbs, and rice as much as possible...

...and devoted most of her time to dancing, which is what she does best in the first place.

As a result, Kristel was able to shed an astonishing 20 pounds. "Dahil sa dami ng narinig ko na bad comments, naging mas matapang ako," she points out.

Her dramatic weight loss garnered so much buzz that she was invited to appear on Aquino & Abunda Tonight to share her story. "Sobrang naging motivation siya [the hateful comments]," she tells Boy and Kris.

Nowadays, the trim actress can't get enough of all the positive comments to her weight loss, and most of her bashers are nowhere to be found.
