Reese Witherspoon: My Body Isn't "Bouncing Back" After Baby
Famous overachiever and recent third-time mom Reese Witherspoon is finally learning to take it slow and easy -- at least when it comes to getting back in pre-pregnancy shape.The actress, who gave birth to son Tennessee James Toth just two months ago, received the Grace Kelly Award for being a model mom at the 7th Annual March of Dimes Celebration of Babies on Dec. 7 in Beverly Hills. Speaking to Extra at the event, Witherspoon said of her efforts to lose weight: "I don't know if I'm bouncing back. I'm slowly crawling back. You know, all of your joints feel wobbly, and your head is sort of confused."
