She’s make incredible strides, but she knows there is more work to do. Unlike our previous work together, we’re no longer prepping for a film, a music video or a photo shoot. We’re training to make — and keep — her a healthy, hot mom. And that’s forever!

Her trainer says that he has heard every excuse as to why you can’t work out. He says you need to make time for yourself, not excuses.

When I found out I got the role, I went straight to the gym. Any character that has a pair of shorts named after her, you’ve gotta at least try to make the shorts look as good as you possibly can.

My body is definitely an accomplishment.

Jessica Simpson gained baby weight from her pregnancies. So, weight loss was very important to her after she had her child. While pregnant, Jessica Simpson told Extra:
I had a buttered Pop Tart this morning, I’m eating a lot of stuff that I ate in my childhood. Kraft mac n’ cheese, Pop Tarts, Cap n’ Crunch. Everything’s filled with sugar.

Together, they focused on weight loss by sticking to the Jessica Simpson workout and diet that had worked in the past. Of course, they had to take it easy.
