Jessica Simpson Is Only Losing A Pound A Week
Another day, another story about Jessica Simpson’s struggle to lose weight. You know the drill by now!
Following the birth of her first child back in May, Jessica, 31, who reportedly now weighs 180 lbs after gaining 50 pounds during pregnancy, has been making headlines for her appearance. Adding more pressure to Jessica’s weight loss struggles is the fact that she signed a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers.
The latest today is a new report by Radar Online which states that Jessica is losing only a pound a week… but fret not as that’s just the way she likes it.
“Jessica is losing weight slowly,” a friend close to her reveals. “She’s not trying to drop 10 pounds a week or anything crazy like that. She wants to do it at her own pace and make sure she’s healthy.”
Jessica is reportedly dedicated and has hired celebrity trainer Harley Paternak. “Her goal right now is to lose one pound a week and Harley’s training program is keeping her on that schedule,” the friend states.
The friend goes on to add that she isn’t trying to drop the weight in an unhealthy way.
“Jessica wants to be healthy for life, not just get super skinny quickly. She knows that she isn’t going to fit in size 0 jeans right away, she wants to be healthy for her daughter, her fiance and even any kids she might have in the future!”
Me thinks this story was leaked by Jessica’s camp as a means to explain why she doesn’t appear to have lost much weight, if any, based on her recent photos! And no this isn’t to say new moms need to lose their baby weight right away except Jessica
was being greedy wasn’t thinking about the pressure she would be putting on herself when she decided to sign a $4 million weight loss deal!
Plus a pound a week is not much at all considering the amount of weight she has to lose (a reported 50 lbs) and adding in the fact that losing 2 – 3 pounds a week is considered a healthy amount of weight loss. Us Weekly reported earlier this month that Weight Watchers could end up dropping Jessica if she doesn’t lose 20 – 30 pounds by the end of August.
