Jenna Fischer: “I Think I’m Going To Be A Little Bit Bigger For A Little Bit Longer”

As most moms know, it’s never easy to drop those pesky post-baby pounds that seem to hold onto our bodies for dear life no matter what we do. And like most moms, The Office actress Jenna Fischer is struggling to get her pre-baby figure back.

“I think I’m just going to be a little bit bigger for a little bit longer,” Jenna admits to Us Weekly after welcoming son Weston four months ago. “and that’s fine with me.”

“Let me please stand in solidarity with all of the women who are not a size 2 six weeks after leaving the hospital,” the 37-year-old star jokes. “I thought, you read all of the stuff in magazines like, ‘Oh, I breastfed my baby and I am so skinny now.’ I am breast-feeding my baby and I am not getting any skinnier!”

Jenna has been married to her husband Lee Kirk since July 2010. The cute couple had Survivor‘s Jeff Probst officiate their wedding ceremony. The welcomed little Weston on September 24, 2011.

    Finally a real prespective on losing baby weight. Not everyone loses just by breastfeeding alone.

    Yay Jenna! She’s got her priorities straight. Breastfeeding does not guarantee the pounds flying off, in my case and my sisters, with 11 children between us, none of us lost the weight until we weaned our kiddos. This time is brief, enjoy your newborn and who cares if you’re not tiny, you’re beautiful.


    Good for her! I love to see a celebrity who is both realistic about baby weight and pro breastfeeding!
