I’m not commenting on this, partly because I feel like y’all already have an idea how I feel about it but mostly because I’m curious about what everyone else thinks about this:
“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.”
Flag on the play. “Everyday woman?” Are we sure about that?
I kind of wonder if she said “My body isn’t bouncing back like a supermodel” in a sarcastic tone, maybe in reference to Heidi Klum who hit the runway less than 3 months after giving birth to her youngest child.
What do you think about Jessica’s interview? And, furthermore, do you think we’re too hard on celebrities who just gave birth? Is she set to a higher standard because of her spokesperson contract? Or do we care too much about this altogether?
