Jessica Simpson Shares Her Journal Entry From 2009 After 'Mom Jeans' Photo Went Viral

Jessica Simpson deserves to be one of the most talked-about celebrities of the early aughts. The 40-year-old has always maintained her kindness and humility, plus she's just a JOY to follow on social media.

Unlike many other celebs, Jessica hasn't hidden the fact that her weight and her self-esteem have fluctuated over the years.

Now, fans are getting a candid look into her journal from some of the hardest times of her life.

Last year, Jessica released her memoir, Open Book, where she revealed a lot of previously untold stories about her past.

The singer got candid about her issues with body image, substance abuse, and her turbulent Hollywood relationships with Nick Lachey and John Mayer — now those are some names you haven't heard in a while!

The book quickly became a best seller and allowed fans a closer look at the not-so-dumb blonde.

Now, Jessica is releasing a special edition of Open Book — in paperback! This new edition will also feature never-before-seen journal entries from the songstress in 2009.

In the pages, obtained by *People* Jessica gets candid about the "mom jeans" photos of her that were mocked by the media back in 2009.

At the time, she wrote, "Today my heart breaks because people says I'm fat."

"Why does the cruel opinion of this world get to me?" she continued "Last week I read back to my journals from 1999 and I beat myself up about how fat I [was] before I even gave the world a chance to..."

Speaking to *People* about the journal entry, Jessica praised the body positive movement.

"There is a wonderful movement for body positivity now and the response to that portion of my story has been overwhelmingly supportive," she told the publication.

"I don't think people always realized that there was a human being, a beating heart and working eyes with actual feelings behind those headlines and that words can hurt and stay with you for a lifetime."

Recently, Jessica has been open about her 100-pound weight loss.

For her 40th birthday, the mom of three rocked a pair of jeans from 14 years ago!

Fans are just happy to see Jessica happy with herself because she has always been beautiful!
