Jessica Simpson knows exactly why she gained the weight she did while pregnant with her daughter Maxwell Drew.
“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.
That included eating one of her faves, macaroni and cheese. But Simpson didn’t quite understand how the indulgence would affect her post-baby body. “I didn’t realize [the weight] didn’t all come off with the baby,” says Simpson.
She’s now given up many of those foods, however, while doing Weight Watchers as the company’s newest spokeswoman – she appears in the ads next week.
She hasn’t revealed her current weight, nor what she weighed at her heaviest, but says she’s lost weight each week on the program.
She also works out with personal trainer (and PEOPLE.com blogger) Harley Pasternak four or five times a week, mostly walking now, says Simpson, because, “my boobs are way too big to run at this point.”
Numbers aside, the star seems realistic. “My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel,” says Simpson. “I’m just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiancé and herself.”
Simpson, who is engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson, will reveal her post-baby body on Katie Couric’s new show, Katie, on Sept. 10.

Whether or not Weight Watchers works for Jessica Simpson, the new mum is working now for the big company specialized in helping people to lose weight.
Weight Watchers loves to publish stories of famous people that can give their testimony about their Weight Loss Program.
We don’t know the conditions of the contract but in fact this will motivate Jessica to lose all the excess weight that she got while pregnant.
One of the things that I don’t like is that later on Weight Watchers will say that it was the reason for JEssica to lose that much weight and people don’t realise that you also need the exercise component to burn that fat. I have just published an article where Kate Hudson confessed that she had to do 6 hours a day of exercise to get her pre-baby body back.
This is not the first time that the singer has face weight loss problems. She has had a journey with excess weight.
This is how she looked when she was pregnant.
