Jessica Simpson Struggling to Lose the Baby Weight
Saturday, September 8th, 2012
Jessica Simpson freely admits that she ate whatever she wanted when pregnant with her daughter Maxwell. Even though she has inked a deal with Weight Watchers and has been working out as much as possible and following her eating plan, she still says the weight is certainly not falling off her body.
She says, “I let myself indulge in everything I wanted because it was the first time I was ever pregnant, and I wanted to enjoy it, I didn’t realize [the weight] didn’t all come off with the baby.” She is scheduled to reveal her post baby body on September 10th and will appear in Weight Watchers ads next week.
I think this is a trap that many women fall into when pregnant. The whole eating for two phenomenon provides women with a false sense that they can eat whatever they want. While I was lucky that I did not gain much with each of my pregnancies, I did not watch my eating the way I should have, and suffered for the excess food when the weight did not come off as fast with my subsequent pregnancies. I think it is great that Jessica is speaking about her struggle with losing weight and letting other women out there know that just because she is a celebrity she has not had an easy time losing the weight.
Did you have trouble losing the baby weight?
