According the Hollywood Reporter, Simpson, who signed a deal with Weight Watchers, has a lot riding on her ability to shed the estimated 70lbs that she gained before her daughter Maxwell’s birth on May 1, the Daily Mail reported.

Her contract requires a 20-30 pound loss by the end of August and she is sticking religiously to the Weight Watchers plan. The 32-year-old has set herself the goal of reaching 130lbs and if she doesn''t come through, she won''t be paid a 4 million dollars signing bonus.
