Jessica Simpson reveals new figure, “10 lbs away from pre-baby weight”

Jessica Simpson announced last week that she’s going to do her “body after baby” reveal today, on Katie Couric’s new daytime talk show. Something tells me that Katie is going to be kind of pissed that Jessica has already been photographed just this weekend, showing off some of her figure at LAX on Sunday. Of course, Jessica seems to be wearing an oversized tunic-type caftan/blouse (which I love, actually), so maybe the big “reveal” will include booty shorts and a tank top. You seriously never know with Jessica. I will say this: I think she looks pretty good here. The weight has noticeably come off of her face, and she simply doesn’t look as uncomfortable as she did while pregnant. But did you know that Jessica claims she only got up to 170 pounds while pregnant? Seriously:

Jessica Simpson is taking her post-baby weight loss efforts seriously — and it’s paying off, big time. On Sunday, the mom to Maxwell headed to LAX to catch a flight to NYC. Before boarding her flight, Simpson, 32, looked comfy, casual and slimmer than ever in a black tunic and formfitting black pants.

The Fashion Star mentor is slated to make her first public appearance since giving birth four months ago during a chat with Katie Couric on the TV host’s new talk show Monday.

Last week, Simpson opened up to Us Weekly about her success using Weight Watchers so far.
“I’m 10 pounds away from my pre-baby size,” said the singer/designer, who got up to 170 pounds while pregnant.

In addition to adhering to the popular point-based eating plan, Simpson said she’s working out four times a week with celeb trainer Harley Pasternak.

“Her waist is going in, and her thighs are getting smaller,” Pasternak said of his A-list client’s progress so far.

Though she still has a little bit of work to do before she’s back to her goal weight, Simpson is confident she can make it happen. Now that she’s a mom, she told Us, “I believe I can do anything!”

[From Us Weekly]

I believe that she’s probably about 10 pounds heavier than her pre-baby weight. I believe that more than I believe she only got up to 170 during her pregnancy. I know, I know – Jessica is a short girl, etc, and her figure doesn’t “mask” weight very well. But I still think she was heavier than 170. Anyway, I guess I’m glad Jessica finally put in the work and she fulfilled her $4 million Weight Watchers contract. I just hope we don’t have to hear about it for the next 10 months.

    Yeah, no. You can look at her wrists and tell she’s full of it.

    ANd if she were only 10 lbs away she wouldn’t be wearing a black caftan shirt. 10 lbs is easy to disguise. She’s probably at about 160 NOW!

    Give it up.

    • gee says:

      She might be 10lbs away from where she was pre-pregnancy (not super skinny Jessica days). Bodies change after pregnancy, she could be in the same weight range with more fluff in her middle section. I think the media and everyone should lighten up on the new moms.

    • Kim says:

      USWEEKLY is using the weight she mentioned on Leno when she was about seven months pregnant

    • Zigggy says:

      The whole thing is, I think she was kinda pudgy before she got pregnant right? I can’t remember because it seems like years ago, but I can see her being 10 lbs away from pre-pregnancy weight, but just not 10 lbs away from when she was thinner.
      ?

    • Sofie says:

      I wouldn’t judge someone on how fat they are by their wrists (especially from a picture where shapes and textures are harder to discern). I have pudgy looking wrists no matter what weight I am, you can poke them and feel how bony they are, but they still look wide. And the pale skin does not help my case–or hers. I just have wide wrists, or small hands depending on how you look at it.

      And I assumed she wore caftan because she’s contractually obligated to do her big reveal on Katie’s show, not some pap walk where anyone can buy the shots. It’s intentionally baggy so it will still be a surprise on the show. (Spoiler alert: no natter how much weight she lost, she’ll be wearing at least four pairs of spanx.)

    • erika says:

      NFW!!!

      NO!

      Minus the boobs I have the same body type, same, and I’m here to set this bee-awsh straight!

      NO WAY 170? NO. 240? YES. YES, YES,

      I’ve been up to 160-165 and I’m 5/4″ and I was wearing a size 10, then I got down to 140 and I was wearing a size 6/8…

      I know there’s no pic proof of me, but there’s NO WAY seh’s close to her goal weight, BS.

      I’m not saying she didn’t lose, cuz she did, but I bet she and WW did a deal where they could tell the public a more….’agreeable’ weight #, just for her sanity…..

      NO WAY Beeee awsh and a LOTTA women see right thru you,

  2. Isa says:

    Well supposedly she gained 70 lbs. that would mean she would have started out at 100 lbs. supposedly. Lol.
    Anyway she does look great. And it looks like she finally has clothes that fit!

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      Great minds…
      I’m thinking, no way was this bitch 100 pounds when she got pregnant. She was already getting heavy.

      She looks better and at her height I’d bet that she started at 140 and is now 150ish. Maybe she’s a bit less, but did we think her math skills were really great?

      This just proves it.

      • Isa says:

        Lol!
        How tall is Jessica 5’3? I’m about the same height. I weighed about 130 after I had my son and no one could believe it. They thought I weighed a lot less. Jessica has about 10 lbs of boobs alone! Maybe she just one of those girls that looks like they weigh more than they actually do? Idk.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @tiff, I’m thinking she started out at 140 and was probably about 220 when she delivered. My mom is a top heavy apple, like Jessica, and she’s about 165 at 5’3″ Jessica is probably about 150 now, but the baggy shirt and big boobs are making her look larger.

        @isa, a single G cup breast weighs 8 lbs. I’m guessing Jessica is a G, so she’d toting around 16 lbs of boobs! Plus, us busty girls always look heavier when we wear loose clothes. I think people assume we’re the same size in the middle as we are up top! LOL. Anyway, we have two choices, wear a Circus tent and look fat or wear something form fitting and look like we’re trying to be porny and show off our boobs : /

      • Genevieve says:

        Agree with all.

        @ Mort…scary how you know exactly how much a breast or human body part weighs. *chills*. LOL! ;)

      • mayamae says:

        @Mort -

        I’ve been between a D and DD (current) my entire adult life and it still kills me that I can’t wear empire type shirts without looking like I’m expecting. My little cousin, whom I raised, is a DD on her good days and larger now post-baby and gets constant comments from our uptight-bitch aunts about how much boob she shows. You just can’t cover these suckers up (to quite the over-obsessed with her boobs Joe Simpson). I didn’t even let her wear a binkini until she was 16-17 and I had to sew a beautiful butterfly clip in her top to keep the cleavage under any control – it actually looked cute and she loved butterflies.

        It is such a delicate balance to both teach her to modestly keep them covered but not body-shame her. I frequently make comments that sound strange but are meant to give her some pride in her breasts about how women have to pay good money to get what she has naturally. To top it off she’s tall and skinny so they really stand out.

    • Becky says:

      yeah, but that would mean she lost 60 pounds which is a lot. Did she really lose 60 pounds?

    • lucy2 says:

      I was thinking the same thing, there’s some funky math going on there if we’re supposed to believe she was 100 lbs before pregnancy.
      She looks good though, hope she’s doing it healthily.

      • Isa says:

        I know! I can’t remember if she admitted 70 lb weight gain or if it was just the tabloids that said it. But if she started out at 140 ad got up to 170 that means she gained less weight than undid while pregnant. Wow.
        @mort- I think big boobs make women look a lot heavier than they really are unless they have an hour glass figure. But sometimes I wouldn’t mind looking a little porny! Lol

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @Gen, I only knew that because I’m currently a G cup from nursing and wanted to know how heavy these things were (because my back is killing me )!

        Although I am pretty good at judging someone’s height and weight while lying down ;) LOL

        @isa, invest in a pair of those chicken cutlets you can put in your bra. Then if they get too heavy you can take them out ;)

      • Genevieve says:

        LOL @ Mort.

        Saw her “big reveal” on Katie a few hours ago. My only question after seeing her was this:

        How much actual weight do you think she was carrying in extensions?! Because that girl had some BIG ole Texas hair! I mean, there was blonde hair EVERYWHERE, to the point that she almost looked like a lollipop.

        *eye roll*

    • samira25 says:

      I don’t know what Jessica has said in interviews but most of the time the numbers comes from tabloids who are just guessing. Jessica may never had said 170lbs so it’s unfair to attack her.

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      ISA! If you see this message please post a note under this article on the CB facebook page. I need to ask you something…
      :)

      • Isa says:

        Samira- that’s why I said supposedly. I know the tabloids don’t actually fact check and most of the time just make stuff up. I’m not sure if she’s admitted how much she gained and what she got up to but the numbers the tabloids report are not adding up.
        Message sent!

  3. Belly says:

    Is she still breast feeding? Her boobs are pretty substantial. It’s hard for petite girls, they can look bigger all over because of the chest size.

  4. Helen says:

    Oh but we will, you just know it!

    • T.C. says:

      What else does she have to talk about besides weight loss and babies? She will milk this for the next couple of years.

      • Kiyoshigirl says:

        Actually she has quite a bit to be proud of, and talk about. She’s built a fashion empire, lower end, but no doubt a fashion empire. She’s a savvy business woman who hides behind her “oh gosh, gee, I’m kinda dumb” schtick. She doesn’t fool me. She knew she had to lose the weight anyway, so why not capture a couple of million bucks while doing it.

      • jen d. says:

        @kiyoshigirl

        Exactly! I get so tired of her dumb girl routine. Most of her income comes from her clothing line, and she’s rolling in it. She’s beyond most celebrities with clothing lines. She (or her advisors) are clever in that they market their clothes to people on a budget. A friend of mine loves jeans from the Jessica Simpson line…

      • Vesper says:

        From what I read, she doesn’t own a clothing line or a company. She lends her name to the company and they do everything else.

    • mayamae says:

      What bothers me the most about her apparent dishonesty is that women who may be influenced to use WW, are doing so because of her reputation for being honest and upfront. She seems to be on the road to Kirstie Alley level of dishonesty.

      I get the impression that WW chooses women perceived to be honest, wholesome girl-next-door types. What’s the point if they lie about starting and current weights? It takes away all credibility in my eyes.

  5. Tifygodess24 says:

    Listen I was so damn huge when I was pregnant, I am only 5’1 and I was 190 pds and still looked smaller than Jessica my guess is she was at 200 when she gave birth , no way was she 170. She said she was 170 when she did the belly magazine shoot. Come on Girl just own it. I believe she’s prob close to the weight she was before getting pregnant, remember she was already bigger at that point. Good for her for losing the weight , I wonder without the WW contract if she would have done it so fast though but who knows. I hope she doesn’t Kristy Alley it and gain it all back.

  6. Me2 says:

    170 pounds = lies. And she will be in a dress I’m sure, sucked in within an inch of her life with Spanx. Although they’ve hooked me, I’ll be tuning in. Dammit.

    • HulaHoop says:

      +1
      I was about 180 when I had my son and at 5’5″ I’m only a couple of inches taller than Jessica. My guess is that she was around 200 lbs when she gave birth. Not that there’s anything wrong with that but c’mon, be honest. No one is buying the 170 lbs thing and she shouldn’t be selling it.

  7. Camille says:

    She is next Kirstie Alley. She is relevant these days only because her struggle with weight.

  8. jano1981 says:

    Same height as her or really close, 170 would have been cute for us while prego, but in my case it was more like 184. 170 my formerly fat ass!

  9. Brown says:

    If she was 170 while pregnant, that is some bad news for me. 170 is currently a goal weight for me and I’m only 5’5″. If I currently look/am bigger than she was pregnant… well I am in WAY worse shape than I thought…..

    I do love her outfit here. Her face looks way slimmer.

  10. GiGi says:

    It’s so hard to say – I’m 5’7 and got up to 165 & 170 wheile preggers. The first time I was tiny and the second time I was a house – but the difference was only 5 pounds! Maybe she’s telling the truth? Who knows.

  11. Rhea says:

    I think she’s looking good and better now. Don’t think that much about her weight. She might lied about it, but you know when everybody put you under microscope for your weight, I can’t really blame her for making up her weight. Or any other people for that matter.

  12. Izzy says:

    We can hope against hope that Simpson has learned from this experience, that pregnancy is not a license to treat your body like a garbage pail.

    And before anyone jumps on me about it, please remember that she admitted publicly that she ate whatever she wanted while pregnant, and by the descriptions she gave, healthy was NOT on the menu.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      You mean buttered Pop Tarts aren’t a healthy snack for Jess & Baby?

      Baby needs her Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate & Red Dye #3!

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Chemicals aren’t good for your baby? I gained weight, but it was all healthy food. Babies don’t need protein and good carbs? What the hell have I done to my children!

        Chemicals were the way to go. I don’t know how anyone eats that shit. I don’t even GO into the middle of the grocery store.

        Pop tarts have about 50 ingredients, most of which you can’t pronounce, not even fit feed for an animal. Apologies to pop tart lovers out there.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Personal rule: if I can’t pronounce it, it’s not going in my belly. Sorry.

    • Genevieve says:

      Cosign completely!!

      Jessica Simpson’s food intake is like the Britney Spears diet. I mean, why not skip the processed junk food and go directly to major illness and a myriad of health problems; all created specifically by using your body as a human trash can.

      I don’t get it. I have personally had physicians tell me that I’ve dodged this-or-that medical boo-boo because of what I DON’T put in my body. Yeah, maybe once a year I’ll dive head first into a Mickey D’s meal. But on a daily basis? I feed the machine clean fuel.

      I’m sorry JS is having such a hard time losing the weight she packed on out of poor diet choices and a lack of self-control. I sure hope that the Weight Watchers endorsement $$ and the green she’ll get for the before and after pics will motivate her to make a permanent lifestyle change. She now has a child to be healthy for and stick around for. It would be great to see a photo of her with some veggie sticks in her hand instead of a Nutty Buddy.

      *jumps off soapbox*

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I really hated her comment about “not being a supermodel” as an excuse for why the weight didn’t just “fly off”.
        Sorry Jess-but you have as much money (or more) and access as a super model. You’re not Jane Average.

        I know I’m being a pessimistic bitch but based on how she has described her daily diet, I doubt she’ll ever be back to her skinniest weight. For the record, I don’t think that weight (at her skinniest) was healthy/normal for her anyway, but I still maintain that whether you’re overweight or underweight, if you’re not eating healthy then it’s still a problem. You only get one body-it’s important to treat it right.

  13. Mimi says:

    She looks great and that’s all I have to say about it. Best of luck to her on her journey back to a healthy weight!

  14. Feebee says:

    Me thinks she subscribes to the same weight delusion programme that Oprah and Kirstie Alley do.

    However, well done on what she has done so far.

  15. Quinn says:

    She and Britney both have the same thick neck, for sure. I think Starvation Jessica days (a la Dukes of Hazard) are gone, and that’s fine…it ain’t 2003, and I think her (dad’s) dreams of her being the next blonde bombshell moviestar are over. She can give up the ghost.

  16. Anon says:

    I think Jessica looks great. The weight loss from her face, no spandex there.

  17. bc says:

    I’m 5’1″ and I’m telling you that bitch was lying. No way was her top weight 170. More like 220. For real.

  18. Mar says:

    I was 205 when I gave birth and she was at least 10 lbs heavier. 170 would have been too healthy of a gain

  19. HillbillyintheCorner says:

    Oh come on Ladies, when have you know a woman to tell the truth about her weight ? any woman ? She had 200 firm in her sights when she was preggies and shes still a big girl remember you photgraph 10 heavier the you are at least…but Its not a bad thing she looks good but I greantee with will be spandexed in tighter the a tick on todays show….being short and most of that weight in front like it was…it won’t never go back were it was before….LOL…
    Just stay were you are Jessica need some real woman to look at not Barbie clones like the rest of the Hollywood starlets out there…and hope to god Kate Couric hasn’t gone on a diet like most of the older gals on tv who look like scarecrows in heels now a day…I will tell you one thing a plane crashes in the Andes with them on board they would be the first to starve to death because one one of them have any fat reserves for the body to use to survive…and you couldn’t eat them cause they would just be bones and hide…LOL

  20. t says:

    TMZ has pictures from just last Tuesday of what’s underneath the caftan and a picture from June 21 for comparison.

    http://www.tmz.com/2012/09/05/jessica-simpson-weight-body-photo/

  21. NM6804 says:

    Somebody on JJ already said she had lipo done to her chin and maybe a tummy tuck but I refuse to believe that (she wouldn’t get paid). Chin seems plausible.

    Now that she’s a mom, she told Us, “I believe I can do anything!”

    Except, you were a mom during pregnancy too and you couldn’t be healthy then for the sake of the baby. Yeah, what you’re selling? I ain’t buying.

  22. Steph says:

    I think she looks good, regardless of her weight. She is easily one of Hollywood’s prettiest women, and I think she carries weight well. No matter how big she has gotten, I never thought she looked sloppy.She is just big for Hollywood.

  23. Ailine says:

    She could lose weight for sure with a contract looming over her head, no job other than to work out, a top of the line Hollywood trainer who probably makes her work out for three to four hours a day, a nanny, and a chef. It’s disgusting that they’ll try to pass this off as weight watchers.

  24. Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

    Not trying to be a jerk, because I’ve had my struggles with losing my baby weight and just FINALLY hit it, but there is no way she’s prebaby size. Jess and I are the same size and I went up to 159 exactly in both my pregnancies and was a shit load smaller than her. I know each woman carries differently but the difference between the two of use was not just baby, it was the butter poptarts and other junk, she was EASILY 200+ at the end of her pregnancy. Now, looking at the photos on TMZ and here I’d say she’s around 150. I stayed about 145 after my second child and looked very much like her body. My face thinned out and I’d wear blousy shirts and people would assume I lost the weight. Its taken me 16 months of hard work and eating right to lose the weight the healthy and safe way.

    My biggest fear is I really hope she’s not putting losing this weight ahead of her childs needs. Specifically I hope she didn’t stop breastfeeding so she could go on some drastic diet :(

  25. littlemissnaughty says:

    Whatever. The thing that bugs me is her hair color. The beach blond is cute at 22 but at her age, it’s starting to look a little cheap, especially at that length.
    Maybe don’t wear the bell bottoms so much either, they’re not very flattering.
    She’s a cute girl with a great smile but her style is just very questionable most of the time.

    • Brown says:

      We are def on the same page about her hair. She’s going to bleach it right off her head if she doesn’t stop being so harsh with it. I think she’s probably naturally blonde-brown (not sure) and it would look healthier a little shorter and darker.

      I’m gonna have to disagree on the bellbottoms though, I love them. :)

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        Okay, fine. I’ll give you the pants, they CAN work but I just don’t like them on her.
        Her hair seems to be taking the bleaching rather well, with the exception of that time she was with John Mayer, she’s been blonde, no? I’m sure she has extensions or a weave or something but her hair looks surprisingly healthy. Cheap, yes. But rather healthy. She really should go a shade or two darker and cut off at least 6 inches.

      • Sofie says:

        I would say her hair is light brown naturally. Here they took her root color and applied it to all of her hair, but you have to remember that your roots are the darkest part of your hair so if she left it alone the sun would lighten it up a bit:
        http://hollywoodlife.com/2009/12/23/jessica-simpson-we-wondered-how-youd-look-with-your-natural-hair-color/

        While I agree that she should avoid the lightest shades of blonde,especially with the spray tan she was sporting on Fashion Star–that was not a good combo, I can’t blame her for sticking with the fake blonde look. It’s her signature, and she was criticized when she dyed it brown in 2007. She tried to go back to her natural color, and it wasn’t well received so she’s sticking with the blonde. (I do wish she’d go a little *bit* darker though.)

  26. I.want.shoes says:

    Jessica’s scale must be the same brand (Delusion) as Kirstie Alley’s measuring tape and clothes labels.

  27. Memphis says:

    I like Jessica, but does she think we couldn’t see her? There is no way in hell she was 170 at the end…She was *easily* 200+

    Get real, Jess.

  28. pf says:

    Every “body” is different. I don’t pay attention to numbers regarding weight because everyone carries it differently depending on body type, shape, height etc. When I tell people how much I weigh they are shocked and think I wear about 20 pounds less. It’s because my weight is evenly distributed and doesn’t just gather in one place. And even when I lose weight, my dress size doesn’t change much. Jessica is a small girl, and I don’t think she was 200 or 220 while pregnant like some people are saying. I really don’t think she gained 80 or 100 pounds, that’s nuts. Also, don’t forget water retention & the fact weight in her face made her look far bigger than she might have been.

  29. Imelda says:

    Those huge bags she wears dont do a thing for her at all. They make her look even more dumpy.
    I wish women wouldn’t think it was so cool to lug around these ginormous bags they look silly and are bad for your back – besides which the bigger my bag the more rubbish I stuff into it.

  30. only1shmoo says:

    I’m with you ladies. I think it’s common for most of us to lie (*ahem*, “fib”) about our weight, but when J.S. said she went up to 170 lbs, my immediate reaction was, ’170 my sweet patootie *eyeroll*’

  31. Anguishedcorn says:

    Just another commenter who calls total bullcrap that she got to 170. I was more than that and I didn’t go full term… She was easily 200. Why lie? I don’t get that.

  32. G says:

    LOL! WOW you are a harsh bunch. I just add at least 10lbs to whatever any celeb says in regards to weight. I think she looks fabulous here!

  33. Zobeth says:

    At least Jess isn’t saying she’s a “stretchy size 4″ ala Kirstie Alley. What’s a stretchy 4 anyway – to me sounds like a slimmer way of saying I’m a 12! Anyway Jess is trying very hard I’ll give her that but like everyone else is saying when I had to lose my 65 lbs I gained while preggo I didn’t get 4 million at the end – just a stretchy size 4 pair of jeans lol.

  34. RobN says:

    It’s going to be interesting to see what happens to her weight after there isn’t a contract hanging over her head.

    I lost half my body weight and it’s a lot harder keeping it off than it was losing it. Once nobody is patting you on the back all the time and telling you how great you look, it all comes down to your actual commitment and it gets tough when it’s just you and the fridge. Jessica doesn’t seem like somebody who likes to tell herself no all the time.

  35. Kristen says:

    Jessica looks great. But we WILL have to hear about it for the next year if Jennifer Hudson is any indication. I am SO SICK of watching Jennifer Hudson sing and snap her fingers and flaunt herself on those commercials. For some reason, I find it off-putting as opposed to inspiring. Don’t tell me jessica will be singing in the commercial?

  36. Cam S says:

    She is SO lucky that her face carries weight well. At 140lbs my face bloats up horribly (I also have a round face).
    I think she is so pretty, I always rooted for her and Nic

  37. Tedda says:

    still a talentless fat cow IMHO

  38. Lisa says:

    Not impressed with anything this woman does.

  39. blc says:

    She still looks pretty big to me. She is basically wearing a tent for a top. Not exactly what you wear when you are showing off your weight loss. I think she is a big liar to claim she only got up to 170. Please. She was probably 150 before she got pregnant and I bet she put on at least 60 lbs. Definitely over 200 at her heaviest. She is a liar and I think it’s embarrassing that even when her full time job is to lose weight and she is being paid 4 million to lose it, that is the best she could do. Yikes.

  40. Shelly says:

    I don’t know if she’s within 10 lbs or not, but she looks good.

  41. F5 says:

    She’s gorgeous, whatever the size.

  42. anon says:

    Wrong.. Jessica cliamed to be 170 when she posed for her nude shoot she has never ever said what the total weight gain was.

    Lets not forget that Jessica had a C section which put her behind 6 weeks also.

    She has said she is 10 lbs off what she was before she was pregnant & at that time was also under major scrutniy & being called fat to which was absurd.. WEIGHT gain sure but FAT she was not.. Lets be fair ladies!!

  43. some bitch says:

    She’ll never get back to the size she was playing Daisy Duke, but she looks great. Fabulous skin.

  44. Jayna says:

    Is it bad of me to feel she did it for the huge paycheck and otherwise she would be munching on ding-dongs parked on a couch?

    Mariah may have been paid, but I felt for her having twins, bedrest. Plus, she’s vain and would have been working hard anyway on getting her figure back.

  45. mar says:

    she had so much fake hair and makeup on,she looks like she is trying really hard to distract us

  46. anon says:

    I think this is one of her best interviews to date. Katie put her at ease & Jess was quite relaxed. Jessica does not need the big paycheck but it shows she is capable of still demanding that type of pay. She has as much right to make that demand as anyone its all buisness. Taking the beating she does its well deserved.

    She was NOT fat as in FAT. Overweight yes but FAT no. big difference.

    What she will show you if you let her is a lifestyle change. Jessica has always been far too open in my mind but she is real.

  47. anon says:

    If you attack Jessica because she recieved 4 million do we attack all others before her as spokespersons & those that will speak after her usuing the same lifestyle change or is it just Jessica… Think before you answer

  48. Snowpea says:

    The girl looks FREAKIN’ BEAUTIFUL! (whatever about the weight).

  49. Penguin says:

    Meh. She needed 2 lose 20 pounds b4 she even got pregnant. A healthy weight for a women who is only 5’3 wld b 105 to 125 pounds

  50. thebutlerdidit says:

    Agree w/ all on the 170 figure, but like most said, didn’t that just come from the press? And, as others rightly pointed out, did we think someone in H’wood was ever gonna tell the straight truth? Noooo. Like a few others said, I’m her basic height, shape, etc, and while every lb looks like 5, I’m thinking 220 seems right. Whatever, because tucked or sucked, dumb or smart, I personally think she looks great, and I wished I looked like her right now. So, rock on with your weird baby name, Jess!

  51. BaZaam says:

    Ten pounds? Are those “dog pounds”, where you multiply by seven?

  52. Kosmos says:

    I would not want to have her weight issues…they have plagued her for so long, way before the baby. I would first get breast augmentation, but she must love to eat because it’s difficult for her to lose weight and stay there, not unlike most people. I’m personally not a fan of the heavy look. It’s hard to believe she gained so much weight with pregnancy…I think eating issues stem from having other issues.

  53. the original bellaluna says:

    There’s a BIG difference between being “pre-baby WEIGHT” and “pre-baby SIZE.” (Shit gets stretched and re-distributed, if you catch my drift.)

    I wonder if that’s being taken into consideration…

    I’m also curious as to one of the tabs’ claims that she is “stuck at 170″ when she supposedly weighed 170 at birth. Sorta blows at least SOME of these stories out of the water.

    Something in the breast-milk ain’t clean.

  54. skuddles says:

    Not to be a big downer but I’d bet money that she’s had a gastric bypass. Combined with better eating and some exercise of course, but the surgery is most likely responsible for most of the weight loss.

  55. kct says:

    I think she looks beautiful, and I’m glad she’s dressing appropriately for her size. That makes a big difference. Hillary Duff, take note.

  56. MW says:

    Here is a link of a pic of Jessica in 7/11, right before she got pregnant. She might very well weigh 10 lbs. pounds more than that weight now, because she looked pregnant back in 7/11, before she got pregnant. I would guess she weighs 170 to 180 now. I don’t care, I just don’t like it when celebs lie to the public to make everyone else feel they weigh too much. http://hollywoodlife.com/2011/07/18/jessica-simpson-pregnant-baby-not-beverly-hills/

  57. Kosmos says:

    YES, she is a very beautiful woman, but I’ll say it again….eating issues stem from having OTHER issues, psychological issues….it’s really those things that she needs to deal with until she gets it right.

  58. TG says:

    She still looks fat to me. Look at her in that black peplum top. She is so wide. She must have a ton of spanx on to try to make her look svelte, but I am not fooled. She doesn’t look like she lost that much weight to me. She is not representative of normal women. She got paid $4 million dollars to lose weight and probably has nannies, maids, etc. I am so tired of celebs trying to pass themselves off as being “just like us”. They make millions because women fall for their lies. Jess has taken playing dumb all the way to the bank. This is why I believe in the “minivan majority” that Lainey is always harping on. It seems to be true for this woman. For some reason she appeals to women. I will say she is very good at being calculating and playing dumb and therefore getting women’s sympathy. I am not buying what she is selling.

  59. Sugar says:

    I did WW after my second pregnancy becuz I couldn’t lose the last stubborn 15 pounds. I get that isn’t much but @ the time I didn’t want to risk getting fat. WW @ that time (mid 80′s) didn’t gave the frozen food line they have now which made it a “real” lifestyle change. I had to prepare my meals no micro nuking

  60. Sugar says:

    YIPES I hit the publish button before I finished my post! So what I wanted to convey is it’s a great program & can teach people life long eating habits. I can honestly say I have maintained my same weight all these years later so I hope Jessica sticks with it long enough to learn great eating habits not only for herself but her her child.

  61. Cliquot says:

    Speaking as a woman her height who has been pregnant, I can say with much confidence that she weighed a good bit more than 170. However, I can’t fault her for wanting to tell a little white lie about her real weight. I’ve never had great love for Jessica, but the scrutiny she’s been under is awful. The “average” (i.e. not under or overweight) range for a woman her height and age, taking body-type variations into account, can be anywhere from 100-135 lbs. But regardless of her weight in numbers, she’s healthy and glowing and that’s really all that matters.
