Jessica Simpson decided to make peace with her body, and now she doesn’t allow the numbers on the scale to dictate how she should feel.
The 40-year-old singer and actress opened up about her health in an interview on the Today show and said she just wants to feel good about herself and, nonetheless, be able to “zip her pants up.”
Some people follow up and obsess with Jessica’s weight for years. In 2009, she received harsh comments for doing a concert in high-waisted jeans that showed off her curves. Since this episode, many people have been criticizing her weight.
In another interview on The Drew Berrymore Show, Jessica said she had troubles with her weight for such a long time.
During her pregnancy with her daughter Birdie, she got up to 260 pounds at one point. With these ups and downs, she told Drew Berrymore that she doesn’t allow her weight to define her anymore.
In September 2019, Jessica shared that she had lost 100 pounds after she gave birth to Birdie by walking 14,000 steps a day and eating three healthy and balanced meals a day.
She told Drew she hates diets, and she’s trying to have a holistic and healthier approach about how she sees her body and the numbers on the scale.
“If you’re disciplined, it can come off, and you can still eat a dang cookie.”Jessica Simpson
Jessica authored a best-selling book called Open Book, shared some personal stories about her struggles with body image.
“A lot of the body-shaming was one of the reasons why I shut down. I couldn’t feel comfortable in my own body; I didn’t know what people were expecting me to look like and how to give that to them and why I had to.”Jessica Simpson
Addictions like alcohol and drugs have surrounded her journey on self-acceptance and self-love. Now, she wants to help others to conquer their fears and learn to love themselves.
And she wants that message to spread far and beyond. She will share her self-acceptance messages through Amazon, with a series of essays inspired by her private journal.
