The former Disney star, 25, who once contently called herself “thick and fabulous,” showed off a decidedly slimmer look at Wednesday’s People’s Choice Awards. Strutting her stuff in a cleavage-bearing, all-black leather ensemble with thigh-high Louboutin boots, Symoné says she was never one to consider herself unattractive when she was still heavy. “
“I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did,” she tells PEOPLE. “So, whatever.”
If anything, Symoné, who just shot an ABC Family pilot called The Great State of Georgia, is not yet entirely comfortable with her new look.
“Actually, now I wear bigger clothes because I don’t like the way people stare at me,” she says. “I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.”
Either way, the onetime That’s So Raven star says she’s breathing a sigh of relief over no longer having to deal with her show – the strain of which, she says, contributed to her weight gain.
“That’s what stress does to you,” Symoné says. “I’ve been not stressing. I’ve been in my own house, decorating and finding hobbies.”

**I found this article to be very interesting! A lot of times when you are heavier people automatically assume that you are unhappy and have low self esteem! Not many people realize that just because you are heavy, it doesnt mean you are depressed, nor does it mean that you eat everything in sight. Im sure she had to drop some of the weight to be healthier (which is always a good thing), but I like the fact that she thought she looked better with more weight on herself. It goes against all beliefs that in order to be happy and healthy you have to be skinny, (this is what society wants everyone to think)however, just because you are skinny doesnt automatically mean you are healthy! I think that everyone should feel comfortable in the skin their in and be healthy at the same! I think she looks good with the weight and without the weight…so she needs to do what makes her happy!!! **
