Although her “body is not bouncing back like a supermodel,” Jessica Simpson says she’s almost reached her weight-loss goal.
Four months after the Fashion Star mentor, 32, welcomed daughter Maxwell, Jessica tells Us Weekly, “I’m 10 pounds away from my pre-baby size.”
The singer-entrepreneur – who got up to 170 pounds while pregnant – shared a typical day in her Weight Watchers diet. She wakes up at 7 a.m. to feed her baby girl, then eats breakfast: half a Flatout flatbread sandwich with egg whites, peppers and fat-free cheddar (6 PointsPlus).
An hour later, the new mom straps on a pedometer and strolls with fiancé Eric Johnson and their daughter. “I’m trying to do at least 14,000 steps a day,” Jessica says.
In addition, Jessica exercises four times a week with fitness trainer Harley Pasternak. In each 45-minute session, she begins with a cardio warm-up, followed by circuit training that includes dumbbell triceps extensions, hamstring curls and crunches with a medicine ball throw.
“Her waist is going in, and her thighs are getting smaller,” Pasternak says of his high-profile client.
Making lunch “her biggest meal” to keep her full throughout the day, Jessica plans to reveal her postpartum body in a series of Weight Watchers ads, debuting September 10.
Now that she’s a mom, Jessica says, “I believe I can do anything!”
