Jessica is worrying her friends and family as a new report suggests the new mom is majorly stressing out over her 50lb. Weight Watchers weight-loss goal! Find out all the details of her struggle!
Jessica Simpson infamously gained a ton of weight while pregnant with her first child, daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson, and now she’s paying the price as she struggles to lose 50lbs. in five months for a Weight Watchers campaign!
Jessica, 31, was spotted earlier this month, exiting the gym in a desperate attempt to shed her extra weight! But according to friends, Jessica feels overwhelmed as she worries about her strict weight-loss timeline, where she is getting paid a reported $4 million to reach her 130 pound goal weight!
A friend of Jessica’s tells In Touch magazine that the new mom feels “stressed and overwhelmed.”
“She’s so emotional. She doesn’t want to go to the gym. She doesn’t want to leave her baby. Sometimes she just starts crying. It’s hard for her,” adds the source.
Taking care of baby Maxwell isn’t helping matters either! “She’s consumed with the new baby,” another source told the magazine. “She and Eric are often up with Maxi (Maxwell) all night.”
“She gets so upset,” her friend said. “She wants her body back so badly, but it’s beyond hard.”
Instead of munching on Macaroni and cheese, Pop-Tarts, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, as she did during her pregnancy, Jessica is now eating oatmeal with berries for breakfast, grilled chicken on salad for lunch, hummus, carrots and fresh fruit for snacks and salmon, broccoli and brown rice for dinner!
Jessica and fiance Eric Johnson welcomed Maxwell on May 1!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will Jessica reach her goal weight or will the stress get the best of her?
