While nothing would make Jazmine Sullivan fans happier than some new music from the singer, we’re going to have to wait on that. In the meantime though, we need to have a conversation about how incredible the 32-year-old is looking these days.
She shared a photo of herself in a chic checkered suit with yellow pumps, and the beauty looked quite slim as she struck a pose:
But this lean look isn’t brand new for Sullivan. In case you missed it, she’s been quietly shedding some pounds since around this time last year.
According to reports, she’s dropped more than 40 pounds, and it’s shown in the pictures she’s been sharing.
Before she had this success, Sullivan was always open about the work she was doing to affirm herself and encourage other women to be comfortable with the skin they’re in.
“Love yourself the way you are…it’s a constant struggle, so I don’t want to preach something that’s unrealistic,” she told the Huffington Post in 2016. “Because where I’m at, I’m constantly reminding myself of my good qualities and trying to affirm myself positively. So I understand sometimes you’re just not feeling yourself, but you have to love yourself for who you are.”
“I feel it’s all about representation. So I feel like I’m needed as far as being seen on covers and in magazines,” she added. “Women who look like me, women with regular bodies need to see women that look like themselves. So I would love to be one of those women to represent them.”
It’s good to see Sullivan loving on herself at whatever size. Check out photos of the star’s low-key but seriously epic transformation by hitting the flip:
