People have been obsessing over Jessica Simpson’s weight for ages. And the singer-actress says she’s over it.

Jessica, 40, shared in a new interview on the Today show that she has no idea what she weighs right now, and that’s by design. “I threw it out,” she said of her scale, joking that it was like having an Ouija board in church. Now, Jessica said, she has “no idea how much I weigh.”

“I just want to feel good and be able to zip my pants up,” the 40-year-old said. “If I don’t, I have another size. I have every size.”

Jessica’s weight has been dissected for years. Back in 2009, she was criticized for doing a concert in high-waisted jeans that showed off her curves. Since then, people have randomly commented on her weight, whether they say she’s gained too much or lost too much.

“I’ve really tried my hardest to not let that define me,” Jessica said.

Jessica doubled down on her attitude about her weight during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show. “I was much heavier than my husband,” she said, of her pregnancy when she gained weight with her daughter Birdie, noting that she got up to 260 pounds at one point. Jessica said she was having so much trouble with her weight gain that she stood backward on the scale at her ob/gyn's office.

Jessica shared back in September 2019 that she had lost 100 pounds after her pregnancy with Birdie by taking 14,000 steps a day and eating three balanced meals a day.

Now, she says, she’s just trying to take an overall healthy approach to her weight. “If you’re disciplined, [the weight] can come off and you can still eat a dang cookie,” she told Drew. “I hate diets.”
