Jenna Fischer’s “Slow & Moderate” Approach To Losing The Baby Weight

March of Dimes 6th Annual Celebration of Babies Luncheon

Some stars seem set on being back in their skinny jeans within weeks of giving birth, but actress Jenna Fischer says she took a different approach to losing the baby weight.

“It’s taken me every day of 10 months to lose the weight. I did it slowly and I did it moderately,” The Office star tells People, revealing that she didn’t start hitting the gym until her son Weston was on a regular nap schedule. “It was important for me to lose it. I was a fit and active person before I had my son, but if there’s one thing I could do for a new mom, it’d be to alleviate her of any guilt or any stress over the idea of having her body look a certain way.”

Jenna adds that extra time spent with her baby boy leaves her much more satisfied than extra hours spent at the gym.

“Making me a happier mama is just being with my baby. It’s such a weird thing that after having a baby, you’re supposed to look like you’ve never had a baby,” she muses. “Well, I’m proud that I had a baby! I don’t see any harm in celebrating that.”

The 38-year-old mom also took time to clear up what she thinks is a common misconception about how celebrities live:

“It’s so funny because I think there’s the perception that every [famous] woman has a driver and a chef and a personal trainer and a nanny,” Jenna says. “I don’t have any of those things. Like other working moms, I’m trying to figure out how to balance it all.”

    She looks good but I’m not sure tucking her boobs into her skirt is such a great look.
