5 things Jessica Simpson did on her 100 pound weight-loss journey
Jessica Simpson rocked the Internet this week when she revealed on Instagram that she was down 100 pounds six months after giving birth to her third child, Birdie Mae.
During her pregnancy, she “tipped the scales at 240,” she wrote in the post.
“My first trip away from #BIRDIEMAE and emotional for many reasons, but so proud to feel like myself again,” she wrote. “Even when it felt impossible, I chose to work harder.”
The 39-year-old businesswoman and singer was guided on her weight loss journey by Harley Pasternak, a celebrity trainer and author of “The Body Reset Diet.”
Pasternak has been working with Simpson on her fitness, nutritional and wellness on and off for more than a decade, the trainer told “Good Morning America.”
To get Simpson to where she wanted to be to keep up with her three kids and her career, Pasternak took a holistic approach, focusing on using all 168 hours in a week to optimize Simpson’s wellness.
“Even if I or Sydney [Simpson’s trainer, Sydney Liebes] is working out with her for 45 minutes three times a week, or four times a week, there’s still 165 of the 168 hours that she’s not working out,” he said. “That was the key to this transformation.”
Pasternak gave Simpson five things to accomplish every day and, for accountability, had her email him every night with an update on how she did.
