Emily Simpson has kept us in the loop on her healthy lifestyle journey since the very beginning, sharing everything from her workout regimen to diet tips. However, what we appreciate the most about Emily's experience has to be her refreshing honesty. Not only has The Real Housewives of Orange County mom shared her milestones with us (which includes losing 16 pounds), but she's also opened up about the struggles of her journey like falling into a "quarantine funk."
Now, Emily continues to be very candid about her experience, even if it involves revealing a part of her journey she "never wanted to share."
On November 10, Emily posted a fresh look at her weight loss transformation with new before-and-after photos. The Instagram post included an older image of Emily lifting her shirt and exposing her tummy alongside a more current image of Emily showing off her fit physique in a high-cut bodysuit.
"I never wanted to show these photos publicly because [I'm] ashamed of where I let myself get, but here I am showing my transformation because I want to be transparent with you all," she wrote. "I worked my butt off to get here and [I'm] so proud of how far [I've] come and continue to go! I lost myself and my confidence through gaining 30 lbs. in one year in front of millions of people on a Reality TV Show. Here I am a year and a half later feeling sexy, confident in my own skin, and like the EMILY I am meant to be!"
Emily shared the post a day before launching her new website, which includes access to more never-before-seen transformation photos, recipes, and a new workout video series from Emily and her personal trainer, Paulina Taylor Hefferan.
In October, Emily went under the knife for a reverse tummy tuck and breast implant removal surgery, and shared a full look at her procedure live on Instagram. Prior to the surgery, she explained she was getting the reverse tummy tuck "to tighten the [loose skin] on my stomach from my weight loss.”
