She’s not having it! Jessie James Decker slammed fans for suggesting she owes her incredible weight loss to surgery, rather than to hard work.
The singer-songwriter, 30, replied to an Instagram photo E! News posted of her and hubby Eric Decker in their swimwear. Jessie was wearing a neon green bikini, flaunting her amazing post-baby body. While we think she looks incredible, not everyone agrees.
“She had a lot of surgery done. It doesn’t look cute,” wrote one person. A fan came to Jessie’s defense and questioned the negative comment. “What did she have done?!?” read their reply. Then the pop star chimed in. “Yeah, I’m wondering the same thing,” Jessie wrote followed by a crying laughing emoji. Preach, girl! Afterward, she took to her Instagram Story to confirm she never got surgery. She also said she was lucky enough to not get stretch marks during her weight gain.
In an early January Instagram post, the reality star got candid about how she would compare herself to others. “I know you’ll see a lot of people in the public eye and they drop weight in what seems like five minutes after having a baby and I think we all feel like we should live up to those expectations,” she wrote. “I’ve even been guilty of that myself and thinking I need to rush and lose weight two months after having a baby when I see all these skinny girls post-baby, but that is just not realistic for the majority of us.”
“I have been every shape and size over the last 4 1/2 years from having children and never had to worry about losing weight until I had kids,” Jessie continued. “I had [a] good metabolism and had always been that way before. Having children definitely changed everything and I’m so blessed and grateful to have my babies as y’all know, but it definitely can test your self-esteem when you are used to looking and feeling a certain way. I got up to 165 pounds with my first baby and being 5’1, it was really hard on my frame and I definitely struggled self-esteem wise.”
Her dedication paid off because now after having three kids, Jessie looks better than ever!
