Jessica Simpson is looking sleek and slim on her family ski vacation in Aspen, and fans can’t help but applaud her weight loss efforts! The 39-year-old mother of three shared photos to her Instagram that showed her decked out in ski gear and enjoying a day on the slopes. Even under the bulky coat and pants, it was obvious that Simpson’s silhouette looked severely slimmed down compared to earlier this year.
“Skiing with the kiddos today. This is far as I got…,” Simpson wrote in the caption, which showed her beaming for the camera. Vacation, skiing, family bonding, and chic new look — Simpson has so many reasons to be smiling!
She worked hard to lose the pregnancy weight
This photo wasn’t the first time Simpson showed off her trimmer-looking figure. After the birth of daughter Birdie in March 2019, Simpson got to work with her trainer to help shed the weight she had gained during the pregnancy.
Celebrity trainer Haley Pasternak explained the unique challenges of shedding weight while being a mom. “Once you become a mom, it’s not about you anymore,” he told Us Weekly. “You’re living for something else, for someone else, and so you have to really be efficient with your time and you have to do things that are not quick fixes, [but] that are long fixes.”
Simpson recently lost more than 100 pounds
Thanks to hard work and the assistance of her trusted trainer, Simpson was able to lose a whopping 100 pounds in just six months after having the baby. How did she do it? A smart, efficient workout plan, better sleep, and a new way of eating that eliminated alcohol completely.
“There are certain things that are more conducive to weight loss and certain things that are going to hurt you when losing weight, and alcohol is absolutely one of them,” Pasternak confirmed.
This seemingly simple fix worked wonders for Simpson. She revealed her slimmed-down look on Instagram. “6 months. 100 pounds down (Yes, I tipped the scales at 240,” Simpson shared on social media. “My first trip away from #BIRDIEMAE and emotional for many reasons, but so proud to feel like myself again. Even when it felt impossible, I chose to work harder.”
Her diet was strict yet manageable
Even though Simpson lost a massive amount of weight, she didn’t accomplish her goals by starving herself or insane amounts of exercise. Instead, Simpson made practical choices and stuck to her regimen for the entire time.
Besides the strict alcohol avoidance, Simpson adhered to Pasternak’s Body Reset Diet, which recommends three meals with two snacks daily. Those food options included protein, fiber, and healthy fat to keep Simpson feeling full instead of deprived.
Plus, the busy working mom made sure to get plenty of walks in and strived to hit 12,000 steps per day minimum. Ultimately, these actions were more impactful than her sweat sessions. “It’s not about the workouts,” Pasternak told Us Weekly. “You don’t lose weight doing biceps curls and lunges. You lose weight by changing your diet, hitting your step goal, working on your sleep … those were the things she did so well.”
Fans are so proud of Simpson
Though she looks fantastic at every size, fans couldn’t help but notice how much Simpson is glowing and happy in her latest Instagram photos. “You look amazing!” gushed one fan. “Looking fit and trim Momma!! Have a blast!!” echoed another.
It’s all proof that hard work pays off. Hopefully, Simpson allows herself a tiny bit of champagne to celebrate her success in the new year!
