Unless you live under a rock, it's impossible to turn the corner without seeing another post-pregnancy body story on a magazine cover. And it's a tale of two extremes: Either a new celebrity is flaunting her post-baby body on the cover of a magazine, or a star is failing to drop the pounds as quickly as the world expected. "You're applauded for doing it fast or a failure if you don't do it quickly," said Tracie Egan Morrissey, a New York-based blogger for Jezebel.com. Jessica Simpson is the celebrity du jour in the weight-loss spotlight. Simpson, 32, signed an endorsement deal to become the celebrity face of Weight Watchers, and since giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew in May, she's had her every appearance and photo scrutinized by tabloids analyzing her weight loss. Us Weekly magazine reports that Simpson has lost 60 pounds in five months following her Weight Watchers PointsPlus program and four-times-a-week training sessions with star trainer Harley Pasternak. Convinced that celebrity examples were putting unrealistic pressure on new moms to lose the weight immediately, Morrissey, 33, wanted to put the model to the test.
