“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.
Well egg on my face. I feel really dumb. Here I was thinking Jess was just being lazy, not working out, stuffing her face full of mac and chee and getting gross. Little did I know it was just a small misunderstanding. Losing 50 lbs the minute you give birth to an 8 pound baby? That’s really not that crazy. I could see where the mixup happened.
