Jessica Simpson Slims Down, Heads To New York For First Post-Baby Appearance On ‘Katie’

Jessica Simpson has been working hard at dropping the baby weight, and now the 32-year-old singer is headed to New York to show off her slimmed-down figure to the world.

The mom to daughter Maxwell went to LAX to catch a plan to New York where she was set to appear Katie Couric’s new television talk show, Us Weekly reported. As she got on the plane for the Big Apple, Jessica Simpson was looking slim and casual in her black tunic and pants, the report said.

Jessica Simpson has been talking about her weight loss recently. After reaching about 170 pounds while she was pregnant, Simpson has been working hard to take the pounds back off and is already close to her goal.

“I’m 10 pounds away from my pre-baby size,” the singer-designer told Us Weekly.

The work hasn’t all been easy, noted Simpson, the newest spokesperson for Weight Watchers. She told USA Today that, during her pregnancy, she was “constantly hungry” and turned to her comfort food, macaroni and cheese.

“I let myself indulge in everything I wanted because it was the first time I was ever pregnant, and I wanted to enjoy it,” Jessica Simpson said. “I wanted to be happy and eat what I wanted.”

Although she has done great with her weight loss so far, it hasn’t gone as easily as Simpson thought it would.

“I didn’t realize it (the weight) didn’t all come off with the baby,” Simpson said.

Viewers who miss Jessica Simpson’s appearance on the premiere of Katie will have another chance to see her. She will start appearing in Weight Watchers ads starting this week.
