Losing weight is truly a feat worthy of applause. If you’ve ever dropped more than a few pounds, you know how much commitment and discipline it takes to make that happen. And while we root for people and celebrate such hard work, it doesn’t mean that vice versa, gaining weight is always a problematic thing. Granted, gaining a great deal of weight can be alarming, but for those of us who feel we have to be a certain size or fit a certain look or else, we’ve unhealthily trained ourselves to believe that gaining any weight is a big no-no.

However, it hasn’t stopped women in the public eye, who are judged to the max, from giving themselves and their bodies a break. Not everyone wants to be waif thin. Eating extremely clean all day, every day can be rough. And the different chapters of life sometimes require your body to change. You can either embrace it or change it.

But take it from the following women: As long as you love yourself, some happy weight isn’t a bad thing.



Earlier this month, the 39-year-old beauty said she’s embracing the curves she has now. The extra backside and boobs are courtesy of a “foodcation” Brandy said she’s been on since 2017.

“I went on a foodcation because I’d been eating clean for seven something odd years, in the gym, every day, playing tennis,” she said. “I was like, ‘Yo, I’m tired of this crazy discipline. I need something to eat! I want some pasta! I want some pizza! I want some cake! I want something other than salmon, broccoli and asparagus and water! Every day! Right after Roxie in Washington D.C., I went on a foodcation, honey. And I’m telling you, it’s been very tough for me to want to get off of it.”
