Jessica Simpson knows that health is about feeling good, not a number on the scale. The 40-year-old mother of three opens up to Hoda Kotb in the Today show about your health journey.
In a preview of Thursday’s show, Simpson shares that he no longer checks a scale.
“You threw that scale, you threw it in the trash,” says Kotb.
“I threw it away,” confirms Simpson.
The fashion designer goes on to explain her approach to wellness, saying, “I have no idea how much I weigh. I just want to be able to feel good and button up my pants. If I don’t, I have another size. I have all sizes.”
Although she’s been outspoken about weight loss in the past, Simpson is determined to focus on her health rather than a number.
“I’ve really done my best not to let that define me,” he adds.
Earlier this month, Jessica’s mother, Tina Simpson, opened up to TodaySheinelle Jones on seeing her daughter struggle with the attention she received for her weight.
“I have to be honest: for me, the hardest thing with Jessica has been the weight. Because the way people judge her, it’s unbelievable,” Tina shared at the time. “Body shame is a terrible thing, and no girl should have to go through it, or a boy. Period.”
Last month, Jessica opened up to ET about her new perspective on health.
“I have to get rid of measuring how much weight I should be because a lot of people have told me what weight I should be. I think it really comes down to how you feel,” he told ET at the time. “But if you’re in the process, it’s about moving on. It doesn’t happen overnight. You have to be patient with yourself, you have to be kind to yourself, you have to love yourself, flaws and all.”
