So some people are so bored criticizing women for “letting themselves go,” gaining weight, they set their sights on pregnant women now?!
When I first heard a few months ago that Jessica Simpson reportedly already signed a deal with Weight Watchers to lose weight after giving birth, I let out a big ol’ sigh. She is clearly an adult and can do as she pleases. She’s making millions off the deal.
I’m more concerned about the messages our girls get from things like this: Don’t you dare gain weight, not a pound. You better drop that baby weight ASAP. You are what you look like.
When I now see all of the crude things people are saying about Simpson’s pregnancy weight gain while pretending they are so concerned about her health, is it any wonder she is already focused on losing weight, even though she hasn’t even given birth?
BlissTree took on this issue, the mean talk about Jessica Simpson’s weight gain and why it goes beyond her.
We could probably all stand to check ourselves when it comes to how we talk about weight and looks around our girls. There is too much at risk to get it wrong. One third of all girls in grades nine to 12 think they are overweight, and 60 percent are trying to lose weight. Read more on some of the issues facing our girls.
