Jessica Simpson has long been admired for her strikingly beautiful good looks, but it hasn’t always come easy for the busy mom of two. Simpson recently opened up about how much weight she gained during her last pregnancy and shared the secrets to her amazing post-pregnancy weight loss.
Back in 2012, Simpson was pregnant with her second child and like most pregnant mothers, she packed on some extra baby weight. By the time she gave birth, it sounds like she was tipping the scales well beyond where she would like to be, so she decided to take action.
How did Jessica Lose the Weight?
According to an interview, Jessica said she started working out five days per week after her son Ace was born. It didn’t take long for her to start seeing results, and it turns out she had some help from a very popular weight loss and lifestyle program.
Did She Use Weight Watchers?
At the time of her 2013 weight loss, Simpson was a paid spokesperson for Weight Watchers and said the program had helped her lose a substantial amount of weight. She credited Weight Watchers with helping her lose more than 60 pounds after giving birth to her first daughter, but she also gave credit to her personal trainer. She apparently used well-known celebrity trainer, Harley Pasternak to help get her back into shape. He has also worked with other stars like Megan Fox, Selena Gomez, and Jennifer Hudson. At the time, Pasternak said his workouts are made up of 5 phases including a cardio warm-up, upper body and lower body strength training, core training, and a cardio cooldown.
Did Anything Change for 2017?
While Jessica’s 60-pound weight loss was well-documented back in 2012, where does she stand now, almost 5 years later? Jessica is a busy mom of two these days, and while she hasn’t appeared in a Weight Watchers commercial recently, she is still working hard to maintain her figure.
In a 2016 interview with the Inquisitr, it was reported that Jessica was in the best shape of her life. She opened up after landing the cover of Women’s Health Magazine. After seeing her amazing photo shoot, many people were left wondering how the mom and businesswoman had time to stay in such amazing shape.
It turns out, she credited her role as a mom with helping her to keep the pounds off. She said she was busy chasing her kids, and picking them up was a nice supplement to weight lifting. But, that wasn’t the only way she stayed healthy – she also said that a lot of those results came with hard work in the gym. She is still able to exercise 5 days per week, with three of those days focusing on strength training and cardio with her personal trainer. The remaining do days are focused on cardio routines, that she does on her own.
