Jessica Simpson has been a client of mine at various times for many years. She may very well be the sweetest girl in America (maybe aside from my wife). She’s as real as real gets and brightens every room she’s in.
But when I saw Jessica shortly after she gave birth, she wasn’t herself. Her body wasn’t hers. I could see how uncomfortable she was in it. On one hand, she was the happiest I’ve ever seen her. She had the man of her dreams, a beautiful little girl, and an incredibly successful fashion business.
On the other hand, she didn’t feel like herself.
The last time we worked together, Jess was lean and mean. She was playing a movie star-turned-soldier (a la Private Benjamin) in Private Valentine.
This time, she is playing a real life movie star-turned-mom – and ready to turn sexy starlet again.
Our first meeting was to discuss a plan of action. Weight Watchers had prepared a great eating plan for Jessica to follow, and I was responsible for sculpting and toning Jess through our workouts.
