Guess it comes with the territory if you’re a Weight Watchers spokesperson! Jessica Simpson is talking about how she got back to her pre-pregnancy shape, and it turns out one big part of her weight loss plan is something we can all do: Walking. She says she tries to walk about four miles a day, often with fiancé Eric Johnson. “It makes me feel better,” she told People.com. She also says two kids means lots of climbing up and down the stairs, which helps keep her metabolism going.
And that’s where what seems like a totally doable weight-loss plan comes to a screeching halt. Also helping things along is the fact that she has a personal chef to cook healthy meals (she says she’s not so good at chopping veggies) and a personal trainer that works her out four times a week. Presumably, she’s also got childcare in place, so she has the kid-free time to meet with a trainer. So, in other words, it’s good to be Jessica Simpson.
But walking is still an excellent way to tackle the baby weight since it’s low-impact for your still-healing body, doable even if you weren’t in shape before getting pregnant, and something you can do with your baby (pushing a stroller burns more calories!). You may not drop weight as quickly as Jessica, but keep at it, and you’ll feel better, both physically and mentally.
