The Sad Thing Lizzo Just Admitted About Her Weight

Lizzo — singer, flautist, 100% that b**** — spreads messages of self-love and empowerment with her music. And with a recent Instagram video, she showed the world how she's been practicing a way she's been working on self-love at home, working to reverse her relationship with her belly — from wanting to get rid of it to appreciating it.

The video shows her in the bathroom, stroking and blowing kisses at her belly saying "I love you so much; thank you so much for keeping me happy, for keeping me alive. Thank you. "I'm gonna continue to listen to you. You deserve all the space in the world to breathe, to expand and contract, to give me life."

She wrote "I started talking to my belly this year. Blowing her kisses and showering her with praises. I used to want to cut my stomach off I hated it so much. But it's literally ME. I am learning to radically love every part of myself. Even if it means talking to myself every morning. This is your sign to love on yourself today!"

Fans are inspired by Lizzo's her self-love routine

Comments on the post filled up with love and support, showing just how deeply her message of self love and the work it takes resonates with the world. One wrote "I started doing this about 2 years ago!!! Very empowering, I love my lil gut now". Another said, "I still really struggle with my belly. Seeing your confidence is so inspiring. I've always been big but post baby really made it hard to love myself"

In so many of her performances and songs Lizzo seems so completely confident in her skin, but she's not hiding the work it takes to get to that place. And she's not always in that place. In December 2020, she posted a TikTok and said "I came home and I took my clothes off to take a shower and I just started having all of these really negative thoughts about myself. Like, you know, 'What's wrong with me? Maybe everything, [and] all the mean things people say about me are true.' ... And [I was] hating my body."

Lizzo went on in the video to share how things would usually go when she felt like that, but that she couldn't get there at that moment. "Normally, I would have some positive thing to say to get me out of this, but I don't, and that's ok too. I think these [thoughts] are normal and they happen to everybody; they happen to the best of us."
