Since Jessica Simpson is the newest “face” for Weight Watchers, it came as no surprise that she spent some time in front of cameras showing off her new waistline. The mother of two gained a lot of poundage carrying her two children and after the last one came into the world the performer set out to get her old figure back. The success of her mission can be seen in the photographs taken at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington D.C. on the red carpet and later in a “selfie” where Jessica and two gal pals posed prettily for the camera.
Before the event itself, the 33 year-old singer posed with her 34 year-old fiance Eric Johnson a former NFL tight end and father of her two children, on the carpet in a flowing black and off-white Carolina Herrera gown that was gathered at her new svelte waist; all the better to emphasis that dramatic baby weight loss of either 50 or 70 pounds depending on which media sites you read. The singer, and reality television personality was color coordinated with her beau who was decked out in a black Ralph Lauren and the couple looked stunning.
According to E! News, sources close to Jessica Simpson say that she attributes her weight loss to more than Weight Watchers, she tells friends that her new waistline is down to her two little ones. She says that chasing after the two combined with her outdoor activities helped her to slim down sensibly. Those “activities” apparently consist of of country walks, gardening and playing on the swings with her kids. Simpson spoke to Good Morning America recently about having a common sense approach to losing weight versus relying upon fad diets, shortcuts and “quick fixes.”
It seems that the performer is more concerned with setting a good example for her children than meeting any societal paradigms of attractiveness. She said in January that she wants to be a positive role model for her two kids and she wants them to “look up to her” and hopes that they will want to be like her. Because of this she doesn’t want them to grow up having a warped perception of what is normal or real.
Back at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Simpson was so pleased with her new figure, she decided to hold her own photographic session after the red carpet snaps. She had a wardrobe change and popped herself into a little black number that was her strapless, and slit up the leg, attire for the Bloomberg Vanity Fair “after party” and she posed with two gal pals. Her caption for the picture said that after the “prez” it was the after party. The newest “face” of Weight Watchers says in her advertisements for the slimming company that her body is pretty amazing since it “made” two little humans. Jessica Simpson also says that she loves the shape her body is in now. That impressive waistline speaks volumes for her determination to healthily lose weight and set a good example for her children. She is entitled to show off a little, after all, she worked hard to get that figure back. Well done Jessica.
