Jessica Simpson 'excited' about $4m Weight Watchers deal

May 31, 2012 - Washington

Jessica Simpson took to her Twitter account on Wednesday to reveal about how "excited" she was about her 4-million-dollar Weight Watchers deal.

In November 2011, Simpson was negotiating a the deal to get her pre-baby body back, and now she's finally confirmed that she is part of the programme via the micro blogging site.

"So excited to be part of the Weight Watchers family," Us Magazine quoted her as writing.

She elaborated via Facebook later in the day: "The cool thing about the program is that it focuses on healthy habits for the long-term (and I can still indulge in my guilty pleasures every now and then, too). I have actually gotten a group of friends together who are going to be doing it with me."

The 5-foot-3 star is hoping to lose her baby weight within the year, according to sources close to the new mom.

"As soon as Jessica heals from the C-section, she is extremely determined to get back in the gym and work out," one source said.

"She wants to show the world and is excited to do it," the source added.

Simpson-mom to Maxwell Drew, 4 weeks, with fiance Eric Johnson, 32 -- "hasn't chosen a trainer yet," a pal said.

"In fact, she hasn't even thought about working out for a year. But if she wants this, she'll need to work out a good five days a week," the friend said

Another reason Simpson wants to slim down is her delayed wedding.

"She won't walk down the aisle until she's back in good enough shape that she'll look great in the wedding dress she wants," a source said.

Whenever she gets married, and whatever size she may be, Simpson will have one special attendant. "I really want to enjoy that day, and now I get to have my baby with me," she said. "I can't wait-it's going to be so sweet."
