Jessica Simpson Struggling to Lose the Baby Weight

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.

    I suggest making a grocery list of healthy foods and strictly sticking to your list at the grocery store, no deviating. It’s easier to go in with that list and stick to it than going to the store tired and wanting nothing more than to be home, grabbing whatever looks yummy along the way. I was very tired too my first and third trimester, the second one was a breeze. Even though I am at my pre-pregnancy weight 3 months post baby I could have stayed much healthier had I stuck to a good exercise routine even 10 minutes a day from the day I found out i was pregnant rather than waiting till I got bigger and giving up because the extra weight of the baby making me tire easier.
    Just know the longer you wait and put off the healthy habbits the less likely you will be able to stick to them later because (with exercise especially) it will be SO much harder.

    You are only supposed to increase your calorie intake by 300 calories a day and not till your second trimester, that’s if you start off with a healthy weight and calorie intake. If you are overweight you may not have to increase your calorie intake at all, if you are underweight a doctor may advise you to up your intake. Either way between doctors and internet resources you can learn a lot in just 10 minutes a day about your body, the changes that are occuring, and how to keep it healthy!

  4. I have been trying to watch what I eat, but sometimes it’s hard. I also try to stay active, but it feels like I want to do is eat and sleep. Hopefully in the second trimester I can get out more and get more fruits into my diet. Fingers crossed. I’m glad I’m not the only one it’s not easy for.
