Hyland, who had to have a kidney transplanting in 2012 due to a battle with kidney dysplasia, said her health has suffered in the last 12 months, which is why she has lost so much weight and isnt be permitted to workout. She said, Im not in control of what my body looks like.

Part of the statement in the tweet reads,

I havent had the greatest year. Maybe one day Ill talking here it but for now, Id like my privacy. I will say that this year has brought a lot of changes and with that, physical changes.

I has been said that I cant work out. Which, for me, is very upsetting. I love to be STRONG.( Ill be using that term a lot) Strength is everything. Being strong has get me where I am. Both mentally and physically. I am not a fan of being skinny.

Hyland, 26, says she has been bullied over her weight.She said in the statement shes been accused of promoting anorexia in anti-bullying posts.

She credits her severe weight loss and loss of muscle mass to the drug she has to take that she says is saving their own lives, although she does not disclose what specific health issues she is fighting through.

She said,

Eat a burger, your head is bigger than your body and thats disgusting. And youre right! No ones head should be bigger than their body but considering Ive basically been on bed rest for the past few months, Ive lost a lot of muscle mass. My situations have put me in a place where Im not in control of what my body looks like. So I strive to be as healthy as possible, as everyone should.

People online have accused her of promoting anorexia because she has get verythin over the past year, but like she said, shes remaining as healthy as she can, but her circumstances have caused her to drop a lot of weight and muscle mass.
