Jessica Simpson Says Throwing Out Her Scale Helped Her Health Journey

Jessica Simpson knows that health is about feeling good, and not a number on the scale. The 40-year-old mother of three recently opened up to ET’s Rachel Smith about ditching the scale. 

“We have a goal, right? But I say throw out the scale,” she shared. “I would use it like a measuring tape because the scale can literally mess our entire day up… I had [husband] Eric [Johnson] walk it to the trash can.”

Simpson found the act to be freeing, adding, “I have to rid myself of measuring up to what weight I should be because I’ve had so many people tell me what weight I need to be and I think it’s really about just how you feel.”

Earlier this month, Jessica’s mom, Tina Simpson, opened up to Today‘s Sheinelle Jones about watching her daughter struggle with the attention she received for her weight. 

“I have to be honest: To 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 shaming is a terrible thing, and no girl should have to go through that — or guy. Period.”

Simpson isn’t done opening up! In addition to the release of her memoir last year, she has released an essay, Take the Lead: An Essay, on Amazon that is “about motherhood, self-acceptance, and overcoming the fears that hold you back.”
