Jessica's 60 Pound Weight Loss

Over the weekend, Jessica Simpson posed on the red carpet with her sister and showed off not only her 60 pound weight loss, but Ashlee Simpson showed what it is like to weigh 60 pounds. Jessica looks really good and she worked her butt off to earn that $4M. It will be interesting to see without the motivation of the cash if she keeps it up or if she will slowly start to gain the weight back. If she does, you know she will be in for a world of criticism because people do like making fun of her weight fluctuations. Plus, people will say she just did it for the money, which is probably true. I think she would have eventually lost it, but that $4M is a powerful motivator.

My understanding was that she actually had a lot of lipo done. Can't really respect that.

Frufra said...

@Cee - tell us more.

PuggleWug said...

Asslee is so thin!

Cathy said...

This picture is like when Oprah rolled out a bunch of fat that was equivalent to the weight she had lost. Now if only Jessica had Ashlee sitting in a red wagon and was pulling her around the whole night....

Jodell24 said...

Dude, you are not lying. Ashlee's legs are frightening!!! And I am sorry but nobody is worth $4m to lose weight. That's so freakin' ridiculous.

CamColty said...

Ugh Jessica! Make up with ken paves already. You're hair is a hot mess!

Jodell24 said...

Also, Jessica looks genuinely happy. Ashlee clearly does not.

Vicki Cupper said...

Jessica needs to let her hair go natural for awhile. She looks good from the forehead down, though.

dia papaya said...

I recently lost 15lbs. Who do I call to collect my $1M?

She does look great. But she deserves some major sh*t if she lost it with lipo. That's not cool. Liar, liar pants on fire!

gloaming said...

@Jodell24 Jessica looks happy, Ashlee look like she's got a case of simmering jealous rage.

SilverOnyx said...

Wait do we actually believe Jessica "worked her butt off" for this?

Frufra said...

Ok, she looks great, no denying it, and I can't help but like her, but you can hide quite a few sins with the big boob/loose shirt/jacket combo - I know of which I speak! The truth lies in a photo taken in a fitted, thin cotton t-shirt.

curlyhairslacker said...

Jessica looks good, wish she'd tone down that hair color though.

stigs84 said...

That was quick! Wasn't she as big as a house like literally last month? I just saw pictures of her & she was huge, now all of a sudden she's down 60 pounds in the blink of an eye? I'm not buying it

The Little Woman said...

Lipo can slim down trouble spots but it wouldn't give you any kind of results like this. I repeatedly lost 50 pounds after my pregnancies, and six months is a completely realistic time frame for a new mom IF you're really worried about it. 20 of it probably came off in the first couple of weeks.

I'd bet the farm she really lost this weight. It's not the first time she's lost a ton (Dukes of Hazzard) for some specific goal. Maybe she'll gain some back, maybe not. I'm happy for her, mainly because I have never seen such vile and hateful public commentary toward someone who gained weight.

LottaColada said...

She does look good but i think Cee is right about the lipo. Wasn't there a blind that lipo was her strategy to lose most of the weight?

auntliddy said...

Good for her!! Now get a hairstylist snd a personal dresser!! Idk what to say about ashly- she needs help!

goheels83 said...

@dia AWESOME! Good job :) :)

MyMamasChild said...

I love Jessica Simpson. But does she really need cash that bad? Doesn't see run a billion dollar empire?

Alicia said...

No way is it Lipo.. Lipo leaves you swollen for a long time. My girlfriend just had it and she had to wear the skin bands forever to mold the skin and she was swollen as hell for 2 months.

I lost a ton of weight after both my kids from simply breast feeding and walking. Within 9 months I was smaller than I was before I got pregnant. Jess looks good. I'm not hating.
Asslee go home!!!!

Maddie said...


I doubt she signed with WW just for the 4M. It's fantastic exposure and if she does lose the weight, it'll lead to so many more things. You know that her people are she' planning the weight loss books, fitness clothes fashion line, exercise dvds, an Oprah or Barbara Walters sit down, etc.

chewysmama said...

Has anyone seen a close up of her face? Does anything look off to you? Something doesn't look right with her nose and eyes. She looks a little freaky.I hope she isn't tweaking her features because I always thought she was pretty before- big or small.

annabella said...

who wouldn't be motivated by $4million?

and I predict that she'll gain 10-15 pounds of the weight back. she apparently likes to eat. nothing wrong with that.

KellyLynn said...

Wasn't she on Katie Couric's show around three months ago? I think at that time, she said she had gone down from 34 WW points to 28. If that's the case, she had lost around 60 pounds by then, and she wasn't nearly as skinny as she is now. I'm guessing she lost another 20 pounds since then.
Just sayin'. I think she looks great.

Connie151 said...

Faded, ripped jeans is a good red carpet look.

CarmeliteLady said...

It's probably both. Why is she wearing so many clothes and layers? Protecting the bandages? Chestica is not the type to cover up and wear loose baggy clothes.

Patty said...

The only thing Jessica runs is to the bathroom. She does not run a business, I don't care what their spin is. She sells her name to the highest bidder. Her fashion line is her licensed name. Someone else is doing the work and she is probably just picking the prettiest pictures for the next line. I don't think she would have lost the weight if a pay day wasn't involved. I don't think she does much unless there is a dollar on the end of a stick for her, IMO.

Alma said...

Yes just a little while ago she was still big. There did not even appear to be a real effort to make it look natural. People will believe it if you tell them they can do it very quickly as well. If you look at the pictures of even a month and a half ago, they tell kind of a different story.

Christina said...

What bothers me is she tries to present herself as the average mom who is trying to get rid of their extra weight. Except regular moms have to do it without being paid $4 million, without trainers and people to watch the baby while they are in the gym 6 hours a day. The rest of us have to do it it whenever we get a chance which is usually as soon as they go to bed, and that's if we are not too exhausted. Just come out and say that you are working your ass off and you have lots of help.

Why does she always wear her pants that length?

Dee Lurker said...

How does she "present herself as the average mom trying to get rid of their extra weight"?? Who is the "average mom" and how does she not qualify? Does it only count if your doing Kathy Ireland VHS workout tapes in your living room? Have you "mispresented" if you get a gym membership? A-gasp-trainer??? You do what you gotta do to make yourself feel good-whose "presenting"?


And, in any case, any female celeb (and male these days) who makes 10 mil or more a picture will admit that when preparing for red carpet they bust their ass to look good because that is their JOB-as in they get paid to workout. This is only slightly different.

I agree that Ashlee is the freak in this, no one is paying her shit to look like that.

jax said...

lipo only takes on 10-15 pounds if you're lucky.

my god can't people believe she lost it from breast feeding, dieting and working out?? It's not that hard people.

It's is a solved blind item regarding Jessica Simpsons weight loss plan....that might be why people are inferring that she's had surgery......

jax said...

i hope i am never so unhappy in my life that i take joy in critiquing any and every picture of Jessica Simpson and her weight.

That's some real empowering shit, ladies.

Have a swell Monday.

FS said...

I think Jessica is losing the weight without surgery. For one thing, she has a lot of help. She is wearing baggy clothes in this photo, judging from my own personal weight and the way I look in photos, I would guess that she's roughly 130-140 here. It's hard to say with the loose shirt and big jacket. She's 5'4" I think, so 120 - 130 would probably be a good weight for her, but not down to the stick figure of Hollywood standards.

Ali said...

Wasnt there a blind a few months ago of a female going the lap-band route to lose the baby weight or something? I would be much quicker to believe she got a lap-band than lipo cause last month she was humongous.

Agent**It said...

"Enty, "she worked her butt off" ?? Hello, what world are you living in ?

Me said...

don't jump on me, BUT....don't think she looks $4 million thin. when jennifer hudson shows what she looks like she wears form fitting clothes. we can't see what jessica really looks like. her trouble area (entire middle section) is covered. ro me, she looks like somone that had a child a few montha ago and has started o lose thw weight and pa more attention to what she looks like. i would not say she looks thin, and actually think she still looks like she has about 20 lbs to go.

parissucksliterally said...

Me, I agree with you. She has lost a lot of weight, but 60 lbs? Nah.

Asslee needs to stop with the coke already....

timebob said...

i'm no fan of this idiot but since she signed a contract, legally I think she would have to lose the weight naturally or WW could get into hot water with the FCC for false advertising.

Jillian ex host from Good Day LA said in an interview when she did her gig with Nutrisystem said she was doing a photoshoot and wanted to leave and told them to just photoshop her, and they said they couldn'becausese that would be breaking the law it has to be her natural self so it doesn't come off afalsele advertisement.

Kathleen said...

Now if only Jessica could find someone to hem her pants and could figure out some way of disguising the look of vacant-eyed stupidity on her face. And I agree, "Me," she still has a ways to go. She's short, so my guess would be about 15 lbs, but maybe you're correct with the 20 lb. suggestion.

parissucksliterally said...

Kathleen, Chestica always wears her pants that way. She has short legs, and thinks they give the illusion of a longer leg. She used to always talk about her short legs before she got fat and started talking about that all the time.

Jessie said...

I believe she lost the weight. I don't believe that's the best outfit choice. AND CUFF YOUR PANTS JESSICA! They're dragging on the ground and getting all dirty!

dia papaya said...

Thanks goheels! Appreciate the awesome!!!

Jolene Jolene said...

Ughhhh, those pants are not doing you any favors, honey! I'm Jessica's height, and I like my pants to be as long as possible because it does elongate short legs, but not so long that they cover your shoes! Gahhh I hate that look. It's so sloppy.

I also think she's hiding quite a bit of weight with her outfit. I have also resorted to the baggy blouse/jacket look when I'm having a fat day!

feraltart said...

I think she looks good & has worked to lose the weight.
I have lost about 4 1/2 kilos with the meal replacement. I am now the weight I was pre-hysterectomy. It s a really hard thing to do & I wish we would stop holding women to impossible standards. Jessica has been photographed working out & talking about healthy eating, this is a good thing.

discoflux said...

She should take that $4M and START MAKING MALIBU SKINNY JEANS AGAIN.

God DAMN it, Jessica!!!

Sherry said...

Count me as another annoyed that she wears her pants like that..Unless or course it makes me look unhappy and that pisses off Jax..There someone paid attention to you now go away.

italiangal56 said...

Nah! Gastric Bypass or Lap-Band! Come on!

Krissie said...

Ashlee looks just miserable. Always looks like that around her sister. I think she really dislikes Jessica but posing with her is the only way she can get any attention from the media.

Also if Jessica had really lost so much weight she'd be wearing something form-fitting, not a baggy jacket. I don't believe she OR Jennifer Hudson lost all that weight on WW.

Leisa said...

it's very unfair of Ashlee to be at her fullest - only to accentuate her sisters size.

Bridget said...

Hahaha, this is the worst argument I've heard in a while, an you probably think you're really smart!

And for clarification: "average" implies "middle" as in "majority". The majority of women are 1) not paid to lose weight, 2) have limited, if any, paid childcare 3) dont have paid household help to do things like cook, clean, etc and 4) have limited time to exercise. So basically Ms. Simpson was paid a ridiculous amount of money to lose weight with the help of nannies, nurses, a personal trainer, and didn't have to balance it with working outside of the home. Not particularly impressive.

Chismosa Street said...

..and everything looks futile by having your photo taken standing right next to your anorexic sister.

djphob said...

So sad no one is saying who gives a shit. I'm so sad that there was pressure for her to lose and then it's "oh, she got lipo!" everyone I know who got lipo didn't keep it off long at all after the recovery. And WHO GIVES A SHIT. Jess, gain whatever you want, girl.

short le chic said...

I'm sorry, but in this economic climate, I'd BEG to lose weight for 4 mil

short le chic said...

Maybe Ashlee's worried Jessica'll become as thin as she is. Then she can't be the "thin sister"

Beta said...

I try to be very respectful about commenting other people's weights, even more if they are women, are even more if they've had kids
But there are two topics that piss me off Re: weight issues:
- all the hypocritical BS about "Hey! look how good I look naturally! I eat McDs all the time"
- and Jessica Simpson-
I cant feel sorry for her because she's signed up for 4M$ for that kind of attention. She has no right to complain about the criticism. Pink took her time to lose the weight and no-one said a thing.
In my opinion it has backfired Weight Watchers because for that much money I don't know if they have got the results they expected (a super slim Jessica Simpson that is closer to -sadly- the current beauty standard proving the program works). Jessica has struggled and made public her struggles and I don't really see a 30 pound loss. Also, if you want to look skinny don't pose next to your famished sister :P
Weight Watcher's best walking ad is Jennifer Hudson. In my opinion she didn't need the weight loss AT ALL, she was so gorgeous (she still is of course), but she lost a ton of weight and for a time would never stop yapping about the program

Alicia said...

Actually Dee Lurker I'm with you.. And if I wasn't I certainly wouldn't question your intelligence!!
I worked out after I had my kids and without the help of nannys or 4 million dollars. Anyone who says you have " no time " to work out because you're mom just doesn't make the time themselves.. Make it a priority and guess what? It will happen! My husband left me when our son was five months old for another woman. I used working out as stress relief and that baby went with me everywhere to do it. Walking , hiking, jogging etc.. I looked hot! And when he came crying back.. I just laughed and moved on.. Skeet skeet skeet! So if I can work out with no sitter, no husband and a broken heart? Pahleeeeze.. Anyone can ! Those who don't CHOOSE not to !
