New moms Amy Schumer and Jessica Simpson have had a back-and-forth about the differing approaches they have to losing their baby weight.

Days after Simpson revealed the results of her jaw-dropping 100-pound weight loss on social media, the comedian shared her own update. Alongside a photo of herself in a black two-piece swimsuit, Schumer — who welcomed her first child, son Gene, in May — wrote, “OK Simpson. Well I’ve lost 10 pounds and 100 dollars to my sister playing poker.”

But lest you think she’s broken up about being on a slower track, the I Feel Pretty actress, 38, went on say that she’s in “no rush” to lose the baby weight. She jokingly added, to her sister, “Give me back my money, Kim.”

Schumer, known for her body-positive and confident messages, was quickly applauded by commenters for her “relatable” message — and it’s one Simpson liked, too. Not long after it went up, Simpson commented to Schumer, “You’re hot. Size only matters when it comes to men.”

But Schumer’s fans were the ones who were really there for her “no rush” messaging.

“Amy Schumer, you are gorgeous,” wrote one commenter.

Another declared, “This just made my day.”

And another put, “I freaking love you! Rock those suits, ladies!”

Several embraced Schumer’s “no rush” message, including, “Yes mama!!! #norush.”

Schumer was also told she looks “amazing and unbelievably happy” while being told she’s an “inspiration to us moms who like to keep it real.”

Some made the point to applaud both women, including, “Jessica Simpson and Amy Schumer are both kicking booty! Good job!”

Simpson revealed last week that six months after welcoming her third child, Birdie Mae, she had lost 100 pounds. “Yes, I tipped the scales at 240,” she wrote.

A Simpson source told People magazine she was “very committed” to her weight loss journey. “She set a goal and she went for it.” She worked out with trainer Harley Pasternak’s team and followed a healthy diet.

There has been some criticism over Simpson’s post, however, saying it sends mixed messages to women for its “promotion of diet culture,” especially in the tricky post-postpartum period. However, she was also applauded for being candid about how much weight she lost. Let’s not forget, she shared photos of her very swollen ankles during the course of her pregnancy and a bare belly shot right before she gave birth.

Schumer and her husband, Chris Fischer, welcomed their first child together in May. Since then, she has shared a very relatable look at motherhood.
