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.
