Williams shocked fans and viewers when she was photographed on a post-Thanksgiving beach vacation in Florida, rocking a 50-pounds-lighter bod in a black one-piece bathing suit.

The snaps, taken Saturday, have been picking up more and more attention on social media, though not all of it positive. Plenty of Williams' followers had nothing good to say about her slimmed-down look, because, you know, the Internet.

"She’s [sic] look like a hot mess!" on follower tweeted. Another added, "The way she talks about everybody else and this is how she looks, every time they catch her off the show she looks worse."

But no one can deny that Williams is noticeably thinner in the photos, which show her hanging out with her family on the beach in the ruched black suit.

In a Q&A video chat with fans last month, Williams opened up a little bit about her diet, especially about gaining the self-control needed to eat healthier foods.

"Because of all the crazy diets I've been on, none have ever been as effective as [saying to myself], 'Just push back, Fatso. Just stop eating so much,'" she shared. "I don’t love food as much as I used to. I’ve picked up on other great habits like juicing."

Williams, who has also admitted to using cosmetic surgery to shape her appearance, including lipo and breast implants, added, "Slow and steady is the name of the game. It's not going to happen overnight."
