We certainly do not envy Jessica Simpson right now!
She may be making $4 million off of her post-pregnancy weight loss deal with Weight Watchers, but according to sources who were with the singer during her first official weigh-in, which took place a few short weeks after her daughter Maxwell's birth, she has a LONG way to go!
A insider reveals that the new mom gained a full 70 POUNDS during her pregnancy, and her contract requires that she lose between 20 to 30 of that by the end of August if she wants her contract to be honored!
But she's not going down without a fight!
While a friend of Jess' confirms that she "has always had issues with junk food," she has also gotten her mother Tina and some friends to journey back to fitness with her "to help keep herself in check!"
And that means staying away from the booze, too!
The pal elaborates:
"She had a few drinks postpregnancy, but then stopped."
We certainly know how difficult it can be to commit to the new lifestyle choices that come with getting healthy, but if the paycheck isn't enough incentive, gurl, at least you've surrounded yourself with people committed to similar goals and helping you along the way!
Hang in there, gurl! And keep PUSHING!
