Jessica Simpson on Ellen earlier this week

I'm assuming this interview was done 5 months ago when Jessica Simpson actually weighed 170 pounds. As for now, she's about 250 straight hours on the elliptical away from weighing 170 pounds. Via Us Weekly:
[Simpson] also explained her decision to go nude for the April cover of ELLE magazine. "They didn't even ask me to do that," she said. "It was my idea. It kind of just seemed a natural thing for me to do."

Despite being her heaviest ever, Simpson said she feels super-confident about baring her body to fans. "I'm like 170 pounds and I wanted to pose nude. I try to be like 110 pounds. It's funny to be at your heaviest and feel the most confident. I just take such pride in being a mom! I just love my body more than ever now."
Of course Jessica loves her body more than ever now. She's morbidly obese yet no one can make fun of her because she's pregnant . . . well, almost no one. Did you know that she can fit an entire Big Mac in her mouth and still hold a conversation about fudge with the guy behind the counter at Baskin-Robbins? It's really quite amazing.
