Fashion Star mentor and new mom, Jessica Simpson is getting ready to reveal her post baby body on Katie Couric‘s new talk show next week, and according to Life & Style Weekly, we can expect to see a dramatic difference. But despite losing 40 pounds in four months, Simpson admits that the process hasn’t been that easy…even with the help of a trainer and a paycheck from Weight Watchers.
“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.
Those indulgences included her favorite comfort food — macaroni and cheese. (Can’t blame her for that one!)
But Jessica admits that she didn’t quite understand that what she ate during her pregnancy would have an impact on her post-baby body.
“I didn’t realize [the weight] didn’t all come off with the baby,” says the NBC reality star.
Now, as a proud new mama and member of Weight Watchers, Simpson has given up many of the foods that she used to indulge in, preparing to reveal a more svelte figure on Katie Couric’s new talk show, Katie, on September 10th.
Though she’s had the help of celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, who has her working out four or five times a week (mostly walking, since, as Simpson says, “My boobs are way too big to run at this point.”), Jessica is remaining realistic about her weight loss goals.
“My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel,” says Jess. “I’m just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiance, and herself.”
Simpson’s transformation will be somewhat documented via television spots, the first of which was filmed on August 16th. A source tells Life & Style, “She’ll gradually be showing her weight loss through Weight Watchers commercials over the next few months.”
