Loni Love is setting the record straight on what body positivity means to her.

In an interview with Sherri Shepherd on theSherri Show, the comedian revealed that even though she considers herself body positive, she still cares about her weight and its implications on her health and her ability to cross her legs.

"Look at this, I can cross my legs nowI haven't crossed my legs since 1992 Sherri, so this right here is an effort," she said.

The Emmy-award winner has lost 40 pounds but says her journey is far from finished.

"It's still a ways to go and you know what? I want to be a role modelbecause as Black women we gotta watch the diabetes, we gotta watch our cholesterol, we gotta watch our heart. So, it's very, very important that we look at our numbers," she said. The former The Real host went on to explain that self-love does not make her immune from bodily changes.

"Body positivity is not about weight, it's about being able to live no matter what size you are, but you care about your weight. You care about your health. And that's what we're doing," she said.

This is not the first time Love has been transparent about her mindset shift regarding her health and weight. In a March interview with Yahoo Life, she explained that she has become more conscious about what she consumes as she gets older.

"My attitude towards body image has been more about being healthier," she said. "I think I took for granted that you could eat a cheeseburger, or go to Taco Bell. In my 50s, I'm taking my health a lot more seriously. As far as my body, I don't care about people who are judgmental about women and their body types. I accept people for who they are."
