Pregnancy Weight Gain and Loss – Busy Philipps Chimes In!

Posted by Alissa Robson

It’s one of our favorite topics here at SureBaby, and we’re happy to have a new ally in it – actress Busy Philipps sounds off on the pressure to regain her pre-baby body.

Though she faces the scrutiny that comes with being in front of the cameras, Philipps (who is expecting baby number two) says she’s not putting pressure on herself to shed the baby weight at breakneck speed.

“Like most things in this business, I think that you have to do what’s right for you and you can’t be too concerned about what some magazine is going to write about you,” she says in an interview with Huffington Post.

Emphasizing that the importance should be on staying healthy and that women “should be given a break” in both gaining and losing the weight, Philipps even comes to the defense of fellow celeb Jessica Simpson, who quite possibly took the most heat pregnancy weight gain that we’ve seen in a while.

“It’s interesting when people make comments about celebrities’ weight gain or lack of weight gain as if they’re a medical professional that’s treating that celebrity,” she says. “Like, ‘This doctor does not treat Jessica Simpson, but thinks her weight is unhealthy.’ If you don’t treat her, then how do you know?”

It makes sense to us! Every woman’s pregnancy journey is different, just like everyone’s body is different. No matter how much weight is gained or how long it takes to take the pounds off, focusing on staying healthy and motivated is definitely the way to go.

What do you think of Busy’s perspective on pregnancy weight gain and loss? Let us know in the comments!
