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."
