B.Simone Talks Embracing Her Body After Receiving Negative Comments

"I'm working with the genetic body I have."

Celebrity News

B.Simone is shutting down negative remarks made about her body. The social media influencer and comedian has been taking fans on her fitness journey with her fitness Instagram page @bsimonefit and revealed that she has lost a total of 30 pounds. She vulnerably shared photos of her body before getting fit and has also shared motivational videos of herself working out.


In a January post, she revealed a before and after photo and wrote how she was not only able to physically change but mentally change as well. “God is so good 😢 In the left picture not only was I physically bigger, my heart was heavy and it showed in my moodiness and diet. Around this time (In the before picture),” she said.

“I was slowly coming out of a depression and really removing someone out of my life who I thought had my best interest but didn’t. It was a lot but I fought for my happiness. I decided to start this fitness page and hold myself publicly accountable because deep down I really wanted to change.”

She continued, “I wanted to strengthen my mindset and take care of my temple (my body). Now almost a year later I’m 30LBS down and my stress levels have drastically changed. My moodiness is better, my mind is stronger and so is my body. When the mind leads the body will follow. Start with changing your mindset! Working out really changed my life and I can’t wait to see what’s next.”

And while she has received a lot of love and support from her followers, she recently addressed negative comments made about her body shape in her Instagram Story that is no longer available. The video B.Simone was referring to is of her getting ready to perform at a comedy show at the Barclays Center. The camera recorded her from behind as she anxiously waited to take the stage.

“The amount of negative comments on my body type is insane on my last post. I keep deleting them, and of course, I’m not going to respond, but I know what my body looks like. I know my a– is little. I know I ain’t got no hips. I know I got a little belly fat,” she said.

“That is my body and believe me I have more than enough money to change it,” she continued. “I embrace myself. If I don’t like something about myself I change it. Just like I got in the gym for a year and I lost 30 pounds. I can’t grow hips; it just don’t work like that. I can’t grow a bbl a–. It don’t work like that. I’m working with the genetic body that I have, and I love myself.”

She let it be known that words are hurtful but still managed to poke a little fun at herself by referring to her body as a “build-a-bear.”

“I truly love myself, so it doesn’t hurt me to my core. But there are a lot of people out there that it does hurt. So if you don’t have nothing nice to say don’t tear people down because they don’t look like a f–king build-a-bear b–h. Don’t tear people down because it’s not your cup of tea. Just keep scrolling.”

She closed out her video by reiterating that she loves herself and how harmful it is to make those comments for people who may not have the same self-love as she does.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Black woman with an afro and tube top laughing

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
