Mom of three, Simpson has been open with her fans about her long journey toward shedding weight and getting sober. Simpson welcomed her third child, daughter Birdie Mae in March 2019. Afterward, the fashion designer lost over 100 pounds over a year.

Simpson employed diet change, low-intensity workouts, and other strategies to lose weight. The businesswoman noted that things changed when she prioritized her health and introduced healthier lifestyles.

Speaking to E!, Simpson's trainer, Harley Pasternak, said, "This particular baby no. 3 was... I think she commented to the press that she tipped the scales at 240 lbs, that's not coming from me, she mentioned that in a post. So, we had our work cut out for us and perhaps more so on this baby than the others."

Pasternak worked hand in hand with Simpson's doctor to help her form habits that would sustain a healthier lifestyle beyond the six-month goal she set for herself.

The trainer crafted a routine that would not only help Simpson shed off her baby weight but also become a regular part of her day. Simpson began with a workout regimen that involved walking 14,000 steps a day.

Unlike some who engage in boxing and other tough sports for weight loss, Simpson took her journey one step at a time. She focused on the long time benefit rather than the immediate result.

Simpson's trainer focused her attention on lean protein and vegetables while eliminating her cravings for sugar. He, however, allowed her to have cheat meals. He told People about his client's eating habits,

"It's three meals and two snacks a day, and each meal has protein, fiber, and fat, and snacks are protein and fiber or protein and fat."

Simpson kept track of her progress through daily emails exchanged with her trainer, including screenshots of her step count and meals.

Part of Simpson's wellness routine included a healthy amount of sleep daily. As a result, the singer gets at least seven hours of sleep daily, which helps improve her overall health. The fashion star is thrilled to be living her best life.
