Jessica Simpson decided that she needed to lose weight. Her reasoning for this she states is “There is a lot of pressure to lose weight but I’m not a supermodel. I’m just Jessica trying to eat real food in the real world and I really just wanna be healthy for my daughter.”
Her appearance on the new Katie Couric show, 4 months after the start of her diet revealed her 40 pound weight loss and a diva-licious attitude.
“I’m on my way and it feels amazing. Really I just wanna be a better version of myself,” said Jessica. You go, diva!
Talking on the debut episode of Katie today Jessica explained why the Weight Watchers program is working for her.
‘You have to track every bit, and you can’t get away with the bites because they add up,’ she said.
‘You have to be completely honest with yourself, and I think just creating that relationship of honesty with yourself is so good.’
The Los Angeles Times reports that “In addition to Weight Watchers, Jessica works with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak. They execute a daily cardio routine…”
Celebrities enjoy the benefit of celebrity trainers, and weight loss companies that pay them to lose weight in return for the privilege of claiming responsibility. But the fact remains that the majority of overweight Americans, estimated to be around 74%, 34% of who are considered to be obese, do not have the benefit of personal trainers and endorsement deals.
