Jessica Simpson is looking to recapture her pre-baby body and she's hoping to avoid the ups and downs of dieting.
The new mom, who gave birth to daughter Maxwell on May 1, spoke to People about her plan to drop her pregnancy pounds.
"I think anybody who's gone through a pregnancy, after they have the baby, it's like, 'I need to do something about this,'" she told the mag. "For me, I really want to do something that is a lifestyle, because in the past, I've been known to yo-yo diet."
The 31-year-old has also lined up a gig as a Weight Watchers spokesperson.
"So excited to be a part of the @WeightWatchers family!" she Tweeted this week.
During her pregnancy, Jessica admits to indulging from time to time.
"I was like, 'I'm going to enjoy my pregnancy,' and I did," she explained. "I ate very healthy, but I did indulge some of my cravings - and that's okay because I know I can work it off now."
The new mom has not been cleared to exercise by her doctor, following her C-section, and says she has yet to step on a scale.
"There's not a goal weight - I just want to feel normal and fixate on inches," she said. "I really want to set small goals, so I'm constantly reaching goals and not looking at something so far ahead."
