Jessica Simpson wore a Carolina Herrera wedding dress when she tied the knot with Eric Johnson July 5, 2014 at San Ysidro Ranch in California, according to Examiner.
Further details of Jessica’s wedding dress weren’t revealed, but sources said it was elegant and form-fitting.
Simpson has more than lost 70 pounds during the past 12 months by following a low-carb diet and exercising intensely. Jessica confessed that squeezing into her wedding dress was her weight loss motivation.
“Knowing that I have the wedding coming up is an incentive to stay on Weight Watchers and stay in the gym,” Simpson told People. “When you see my dress, you’ll know.”
Simpson is fitter than ever after losing 70 pounds on a low-carb diet. Jessica’s diet features high-quality proteins like salmon and chicken, fresh vegetables, and lots of salads. She also avoids processed foods and limits sugar.
Jessica said she walks six miles a day on the treadmill, does yoga, and works out at the gym for 45 minutes, four days a week, with her longtime trainer Harley Pasternak, creator of the 5-Factor Workout DVD.
Harley said Jessica’s workouts combine 10 to 20 minutes of cardio exercise, 20 to 30 minutes of resistance training, and lots of flexibility moves. Pasternak, author of The Body Reset Diet, also trains Halle Berry, Megan Fox (who credits the Paleo diet for her post-baby weight loss) and Lady Gaga.
Jessica, who gained about 70 pounds during both her pregnancies, admitted that her weight gain made her depressed. “I was so insecure; I couldn’t even believe what I weighed,” she said. “It is a really hard thing to go through.”
Ironically, Simpson said her weight problems are part of the reason she’s so successful with her clothing line, which boasts annual sales of $1 billion. Simpson said women relate to her because she’s not naturally skinny and has weight issues, just like many of them do.
Through it all, Jessica said she is glad she never caved in to the extreme pressure to resort to starvation diets or other unhealthy measures. “I was proud of myself throughout that period for not doing every crash diet and trying to get as skinny as I could, or not eating,” she said.
