Jessica Simpson, 41, looks thinner than ever in her skinny jeans as she shows off her figure… after losing 100lbs then giving up alcohol
Jessica Simpson shared a new selfie to Instagram on Monday evening where she was trying on shoes in front of a mirror.
The Dukes Of Hazzard actress, 41, looked thinner than ever in her skinny jeans as she says she has taken to working out in the gym nearly every day.
The songbird lost 100lbs after welcoming her third child with husband Eric Johnson. She has also been sober from alcohol and pills for the past four years, something she revealed in her memoir Open Book.

Jessica looked cute with her hair in an updo with a headband as she wore a cheetah-print top with blue denim skinny jeans that buttoned up in front.
She had on both an over-the-knee boot and a shorter boot, both from her own collection.
The star held up an phone with a Gucci case as she put a finger to her mouth, and behind her was a spectacular Christmas tree with pastel colored ornaments.
‘I’m so frazzled and giddy from shopping Cyber Monday sales that I can’t even choose between which @jessicasimpsonstyle boot to wear for a dinner date with my kids in tow! What do y’all fancy?’ she captioned the image.

The star has been very open about her personal transformation from food and alcohol obsessed to living clean.
In early November she took to Instagram to share a photograph of herself while in the midst of her addiction.
The blonde beauty is almost unrecognizable as she looks bloated and confused while wearing a pink track suit as she sat down in a dark room.

‘This person in the early morning of Nov 1, 2017 is an unrecognizable version of myself,’ said the author who has daughters Maxwell, nine, and Birdie, two, as well as son Ace, eight, with husband Eric Johnson.
‘I had so much self discovery to unlock and explore. I knew in this very moment I would allow myself to take back my light, show victory over my internal battle of self respect, and brave this world with piercing clarity.’
She said to do this she needed to stop drinking alcohol because it kept her mind and heart circling in the same direction.
‘And quite honestly I was exhausted,’ added the sister of Ashlee Simpson.

She added that she wanted to feel the pain so she could ‘carry it like a badge of honor.’
And Simpson wanted to live as a leader does and ‘break cycles to advance forward- never looking back with regret and remorse over any choice I have made and would make for the rest of my time here within this beautiful world.’
The clothing designer said she can’t believe it has been four years since she stopped drinking.
‘It feels like maybe 2. I think that is a good thing. Ha.’
She also said there is so much stigma around the word alcoholism or the label of an alcoholic.
‘The real work that needed to be done in my life was to actually accept failure, pain, brokenness, and self sabotage,’ said the Public Affair singer.

‘The drinking wasn’t the issue. I was. I didn’t love myself. I didn’t respect my own power. Today I do.
‘I have made nice with the fears and I have accepted the parts of my life that are just sad. I own my personal power with soulful courage. I am wildly honest and comfortably open. I am free.’
In her memoir Open Book she talked about getting dry. ‘I was killing myself with all the drinking and pills,’ she said. ‘Giving up the alcohol was easy. I was mad at that bottle. At how it allowed me to stay complacent and numb.’
Therapy was not as easy: ‘With work, I allowed myself to feel the traumas I’d been through.’

When she was six she shared a bed with the daughter of a family friend when she was abused. ‘It would start with tickling my back and then go into things that were extremely uncomfortable.’
But she kept quiet: ‘I wanted to tell my parents. I was the victim but somehow I felt in the wrong.’
When she was 12 she told mom and dad Tina and Joe Simpson during a car trip. Her mother told her dad: ‘I told you something was happening.’ Simpson says her father kept his eye on the road and said nothing: ‘We never stayed at my parents’ friends house again but we also didn’t talk about what I had said.’
Meanwhile, she has stayed slender thanks to working out.
Simpson previously opened up about her remarkable triple-digit weight loss, after giving birth to her third child Birdie Mae, in March 2019.
The businesswoman maintains her transformed figure by hitting 14,000 steps a day.
Her trainer Harley Pasternak said after she ‘tipped the scales at 240 lbs’ postpartum, they worked hard to create a sustainable plan for her health and wellness goals.
‘It had to be more than just getting back from her baby weight, but how do I keep whatever I am doing now forever,’ he explained to E! News.

He added: ‘That’s why we are not a big fan of doing any extreme diet or radical forms of exercise.’
In 2020, Pasternak spoke to DailyMail.com on using the five daily behaviors he’s previously promoted in his book titled 5 Pounds with the mother-of-three.
‘We made sure Jessica’s Fitbit read at least 12,000 steps every day before she went to bed, made sure she got at least seven hours of quality sleep a night, [and] unplug from technology at least one hour a day,’ Harley detailed.
The other two principles included Jessica eating a diet consisting of three meals and two snacks, all of which prioritized protein and fiber.

She would also do short resistance workouts every other day. Harley said losing 100lbs in six months was not the specific goal set for Jessica when she started her postpartum-health journey
‘The goal was the process,’ he said. ‘There was never a specific number on the scale that anyone had in mind. It was, “Do the work, and the rest will follow.”‘
When asked why walking was prioritized, Harley explained how it was ‘the ultimate fat-burning exercise’.
‘Working out with resistance exercise is the best way to tone, tighten, and strengthen,’ Harley continued. ‘But to lose weight, nothing can beat walking. Both of these are essential to get the goals that you want.’
For Jessica’s diet she would typically eat a breakfast of scrambled eggs (one whole egg and three egg whites) with a bowl of blackberries. Then for lunch, she would have a salad with grilled chicken and eat grilled fish and vegetables for dinner.
Snacks included a handful of almonds or green beans with Parmesan cheese on top.
