We are under constant scrutiny,” Oz, 30, writes. “I am not perfect, I have not reached all my goals, I still see all my flaws first. But progress is everything, and one positive feeling begets another.”

The mom of two then thanked her followers for coming to her defense.

“This is a space for positivity and smart strategies and results, but most importantly, it is a place for celebration and FUN. I love that you guys shut down the obvious trolls that show up on here every now and then because they seriously have no other place or way to feel heard,” she says.
