How does Jessica Simpson celebrate a dramatic weight loss? Rocking itsy bitsy Daisy Dukes.
Nearly 10 years after she first wore the tiny denim shorts in the 2005 remake, “The Dukes of Hazzard,” the 33-year-old pop singer-turned-fashion designer is flaunting her famous legs again, showing off her new slimmer shape.
People Magazine is reporting that the mother of two was spotted running errands in sunny California wearing a pair of cut-offs, proudly revealing her super-toned gams. But the real reason the blonde bombshell is all smiles? In time for her upcoming wedding to Eric Johnson, Simpson has met her weight loss goals.
While the native Texan won't say how much weight she’s lost since giving birth to son Ace in June 2013, nutritionist Marco Borges is telling E! Online he estimates she’s “lost somewhere between 60-70 pounds.”
So, how did Simpson do it? For starters, it’s no secret she’s a celebrity spokeswoman for Weight Watchers -- and she credits the program with helping her learn to eat smarter throughout her two pregnancies.
“With Maxwell (firstborn daughter) I vegged out and laid around,” Simpson tells USA Today. “I knew I didn’t have to watch what I was eating for the first time in my life. I kind of let loose, and I gained a lot.”
Simpson also says she lost more than 50 pounds on Weight Watchers after Maxwell was born. Weight Watchers advises members that a healthy weight range for someone of who's Simpson's height -- a petite five-foot, three inches -- is between 113-141 pounds.” When Simpson became pregnant again just seven months after the birth of her first child, she opted for a “healthier lifestyle,” which included exercising with a personal trainer three time s a week, as well as taking walks with her “almost husband,” of “8,000 to 10,000 steps a day.”
“With both kids, I’m running up and down my stairs a million times,” explains Simpson. “Kids can keep your metabolism going. Eric (Johnson) and I go on walks together. I try and walk about 4 miles a day consistently. It makes me feel better.”
These days, Simpson breaks a sweat four days a week with 45-minute workouts.
“It’s a lot of resistance training, lots of lunges and squats,” she explains. “There are bursts of cardio throughout the workout as well.”
In addition, she likes to further amp up physical activity by playing with the kids, “doing somersaults in the backyard with Maxwell.”
Sure, she did get loads of help along the way to meet her goals. However, with determination, daily exercise, and a balanced diet, shedding the pounds can be possible. Just check out Simpson’s amazing body transformation for yourself as proof:
