Part of me feels really bad for even talking about Jessica Simpson’s weight. Losing weight after having a baby is a special sort of hell, and it definitely doesn’t come easily for many women. But another part of me thinks she’s just asking for it. She did, after all, sign a deal with Weight Watchers WHILE pregnant to lose weight – in a certain amount of time. So what did she think was going to happen? If you sign a deal with WW – people are going to watch your weight like crazy, under a magnifying glass.
So where has Jessica been? There are zero to none new pictures of her. Rumor has it the reason we haven’t seen her – is because she’s going to do some sort of “big reveal” on Katie Couric’s new TV show.
Anyway, she’s staying out of the public eye, but she’s not staying quiet.
Jessica Simpson knows exactly why she gained the weight she did while pregnant with her daughter Maxwell Drew.
“I let myself indulge in everything I wanted because it was the first time I was ever pregnant, and I wanted to enjoy it,” Simpson, 32, tells USA Today.
That included eating one of her faves, macaroni and cheese. But Simpson didn’t quite understand how the indulgence would affect her post-baby body. “I didn’t realize [the weight] didn’t all come off with the baby,” says Simpson.
She’s now given up many of those foods, however, while doing Weight Watchers as the company’s newest spokeswoman – she appears in the ads next week.
She hasn’t revealed her current weight, nor what she weighed at her heaviest, but says she’s lost weight each week on the program.
She also works out with personal trainer (and PEOPLE.com blogger) Harley Pasternak four or five times a week, mostly walking now, says Simpson, because, “my boobs are way too big to run at this point.”
Numbers aside, the star seems realistic. “My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel,” says Simpson. “I’m just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiancé and herself.”
Simpson, who is engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson, will reveal her post-baby body on Katie Couric’s new show, Katie, on Sept. 10.
US Weekly is reporting that Jessica has lost 40 of the 50 pounds she wanted to lose, which leaves her with only 10 pounds to go. Not too shabby!
Can’t wait to see what she looks like!
