Jessica Simpson Reveals Post-Baby Body After Weight Struggle

On the premiere episode of Katie Couric’s new talk show Katie, singer and fashion designer Jessica Simpson revealed her post-baby body for the first time since she disclosed that she was struggling to lose pregnancy weight and seeking help from Weight Watchers–and is now a spokesperson for the company–to shed the pounds.

On the show, Simpson disclosed that she’s lost more than 40 pounds, and that she is 10 pounds from her pre-pregnancy weight.  Simpson’s daughter Maxwell Drew was born May 1.

A new outlook on food has helped.

“The only fish I ever ate was a fish stick,” Simpson says, adding that she also loved chips, guacamole and queso. “Now I’m trying to eat fish.”

She adds, “I definitely don’t pick up the magazines. I definitely don’t Google my name. I try to avoid it completely. But I subconsciously know the talk is going on. Every day it’s a struggle for me. Weight Watchers is not intimidating. It’s not a diet. It’s a lifestyle.”

Simpson, who admits she “put on more baby weight than I was planning,” isn’t ashamed of her former body.

“I have to separate myself from the world’s expectations,” she says. “I have to look inside myself. I want to be a role model.”
