It's been so long since I've gone through a breakup, I really can't remember whether I slimmed down or puffed up. If I had to guess, it mostly likely was the latter. We all know my issues with emotional eating, and the damage I can do to a bag of Doritos and a pint of ice cream when I'm drunk (I get thirsty for vodka when I'm sad). Remember this post? Yeah...scary.
Some celebrities say they gain weight when they're in a relationship because they're just so darn happy, which I really don't understand because um, don't you want to look hot for your man? Anyway, Jessica Simpson is not one of those people. For her, relationships=skinny.
This is Jessica during her Nick Lachey days—I miss this girl! She is so gorgeous here it's kind of ridic. Actually, she might even be a few pounds too skinny. (I know, I know, celebrities can never win—they're either too fat or too skinny). I am a fan of hers (not really sure why?), so I'm going to refrain from getting super-bitchy about her current expanding waistline, but damn, it's getting out of control!
Here's a recent pic of Jess post breakup with footballer Tony Romo and Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan. Homegirl is not looking too hot, and that outfit isn't helping matters any. It's hard to know what to wear when you've gained a few, or in Jess's case, 15 lbs. Oversized dresses and flowy tops can make you look even bigger, but I certainly don't think tight dresses that push your boobs up to your chin is the answer either. Poor girl.
So what about you guys: Does a breakup motivate you to hit the gym harder, or do you go into Jessica Simpson mode? And what are the best things to wear to camouflage a few extra pounds?
