Just six months after giving birth to her third child, Jessica Simpson has revealed a whopping 100-pound weight loss. That’s right, 100 pounds! The 39-year-old star announced her impressive fitness feat on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself alongside a caption that sums up her hard work.
In the image, Simpson is sporting a belted black dress that highlights her waistline. She captioned the post: “6 months. 100 pounds down (Yes, I tipped the scales at 240 😜).”
She also shared a photo herself with her youngest daughter, 6-month-old Birdie Mae. “My first trip away from #BIRDIEMAE and emotional for many reasons, but so proud to feel like myself again,” Simpson continued. “Even when it felt impossible, I chose to work harder. 💚”
Though it is unclear how Simpson managed to make such a drastic change in such a short time, she told People back in July that she was working hard to get back into shape after giving birth to her daughter. “It’s not easy at all, but I am determined to feel good. I have been doing a lot of walking — getting my steps in not only burns calories but it also helps me clear my head and get focused,” she said.
Her diet played a big role as well. The mom of three said that she’s taken a liking to cauliflower substitutes. “I am eating healthy too — I discovered I really like cauliflower,” she said. “Who knew it could be a substitute for almost anything?!” Simpson has also been working with celebrity fitness trainer Harley Pasternak and trainer Sydney Liebes.
“Beyond proud of this incredible woman. Been working together for over 12 years and she’s always the most warm, sweet, polite, and respectful person in the world,” Pasternak wrote on his Instagram account, sharing the same photo. “And on top of it all, after being nonstop pregnant for as long as I can remember, she’s down 100 pounds and looks younger today than she was when we met.”
Simpson also shares 6-year-old daughter Maxwell Drew and 5-year-old son Ace Knute with her husband, Eric Johnson. She has had well-documented her experiences with motherhood over the years, as well as her struggles with weight gain and health concerns during each pregnancy. It’s wonderful to see the proud mom feeling great again.
Fans and fellow celebs quickly flooded Simpson latest IG post with supportive comments. “You look amazing!!” Katie Couric wrote. “I love how honest and real you are about motherhood, weight loss and just life,” added another follower.
But mom-to-be Shay Mitchell sums up the collective repose best, simply writing: “WOW!!!”
