We can't imagine Weight Watchers would have been too happy to hear about this!
It's no secret that Jessica Simpson has had her share of difficulties shedding the 70 pounds she put on while pregnant with her daughter, Maxwell, but despite signing a multi-million dollar deal with the weight loss company to be their spokesperson, the singer apparently was so desperate to get slim again that she tried to get the lap band surgery!
However, she consulted with two different doctors…and both advised her against it!
A source close to her reveals:
"After having her daughter Maxwell, Jessica felt there was no way she could ever lose the weight on her own because she has struggled so much in the past and her post partum weight seemed to be growing. So like a true Hollywood girl, she sought out a quick surgical fix - lap band surgery! She was persuaded to keep pushing to do it the natural way. She has had to deal with the blues in the past. So everyone was thrilled that she has avoided PPD. With the doctors' words and her friends' encouragement, she is finally shedding the pounds without surgery!"
As she should be!
While we certainly understand how daunting and difficult the weight loss process can be, that kind of surgery should be a last resort for those who really need it!
And obviously, even at her heaviest, Jess was clearly not one of them!
Glad you're sticking to diet and exercise, gurl!
You're almost there! Keep on pushing!
