Jessica Simpson: Lifelong Obsession With Weight

Thursday, January 3, 2013

JESSICA Simpson admits she has always been obsessed with her weight.

The singer — who lost 60 pounds with Weight Watchers following the birth of her first daughter Maxwell seven months ago, before announcing she is pregnant with her second child — says she has been a yo-yo dieter all of her life.

“I obsessed about my weight my whole life… I was always on some new life-stopping diet,” Jessica said in a newly released Weight Watchers 360 advertisement in which she teams up with the company’s other spokesperson Jennifer Hudson, that will hit screens on Thursday.

Simpson then claims Weight Watchers “let’s me be me,” and says “I amazed myself.”

Meanwhile, Jessica has asked her estranged dad to walk her down the aisle before it’s too late.

The star — who’s engaged to her baby daddy beau Eric Johnson – was so deeply moved by the Dec. 15 nuptials of her best friend CaCee Cobb and Scrubs star Donald Faison that she’s telling pals she’s going to race ahead with her wedding.

Jess is due to have her second baby this summer, but she wants to tie the knot first — just weeks from now.

“CaCee and Don­ald’s wedding blew Jess away,” revealed a source. “She was so touched by their deep abiding love, she’s decided to fast-track her own ceremony.

“She told guests at CaCee’s wed­ding, ‘This is the last time you’ll see me as a bridesmaid. The next wedding I’m at, I’ll be the bride!’

“Jess and Eric are planning to marry in January or February and are debating between a wedding in Hawaii or just putting on a down-home casual affair at their Beverly Hills home.

“Jess even asked her dad to walk her down the aisle at her wedding.”
