Emily Simpson has been steadily working on her healthy lifestyle with trainer Paulina Taylor Hefferan, and the hard work is most certainly paying off. The Real Housewives of Orange County mom committed to rigorous, early morning workouts and a complete overhaul of her diet that has led to losing more than 15 pounds.
Back in June, Emily explained that her strict workout routine and changes to her diet have led to a significant reduction in body fat along with losing several inches throughout her body. There's no question that Emily hasn't always been a stunner, but she explained that her fitness journey was just as much about her mental health as it is about the physical.
Whether she was "feeling strong" in a tiny bikini or being a "badass" in a skintight denim jumpsuit, we followed all the milestone moments throughout her journey. But on October 21, Emily pointed out one result from shedding pounds that may have gone under the radar — her facial transformation.
Her trainer Paulina Taylor Hefferan took to Instagram to celebrate Emily's success writing, "This is what hard work, weight loss, and 10% less body fat looks like." In the top photo, Emily is all smiles in her interview with her signature high-volume auburn hair. And in the second photo, we see Emily from the current season of RHOC with noticeably chiseled cheekbones and a leaner jawline. (Though these changes to her face are the aftermath of rigorous workouts, Emily did undergo several plastic surgery procedures this week including removing her breast implants and a reverse tummy tuck.)
"Her 6 am workouts in the dark 3-4 days a week, healthy eating, and learning about balance has truly paid off," Hefferan continued. "She looks beautiful in both photos but she’s a lot healthier and happier now!"
