REAL Housewives of Orange County star Emily Simpson has shown off her incredible weight loss journey over the past few months.
The glamorous mother-of-three has shed the pounds and worked on her fitness, after struggling with weight gain over due to chronic pain from arthritis.
The 44-year-old reality television star says she's implemented a drastic lifestyle change over the past few months.
Rightfully proud of achieving her health goals, the Bravolebrity has shared the details of her 16-pound weight loss.
Showcasing her trim figure in August this year, she wrote: "It’s been a JOURNEY to get to this point right here. Ups and downs. Gains and losses.
"Currently 16 pounds down. Body fat percentage 10% lower than last year. And no longer categorized as 'obese.'
"There’s no right way to start. There’s no magic plan or magic pill. You just have to dig deep and make yourself a priority.
"My first step was contacting @paulinastein and asking for help. Sometimes we become too overwhelmed with life, kids, depression, weight gain, hormones, relationships, illness etc … but you have to start somewhere.
"Make today that day. A year from now will pass by regardless. Might as well make it your healthiest yet."
Emily's struggle with her weight was addressed during the last season of RHOC.
The reality favourite revealed she had strugged with weight gain due to chronic pain from arthritis.
Emily underwent hip surgery on October 28 2019, and has battled depression after the severe pain from her condition left her “completely unmotivated”.
The RHOC star made amazing progress after enlisting the help of trainer Paulina Taylor Hefferan to get in shape.
Emily said: “I was in chronic pain, I was depressed and I weighed more than I ever have in my whole life!"
She continued: “I reached out to Paulina and asked her for her help. I had no idea where to start. I felt lost.
“She helped me change my lifestyle and has taught me so much about balance. She has also encouraged me to not give up and keep going.”
The mum-of-three said she wanted to set a good example for her kids.
She said: “I haven’t felt this good in a long time and with a new hip, and 15 pounds off I’m finally able to keep up with my kids and be more active!”
Emily also recently revealed that she plans to have her breast implants removed following her weight loss.
She wrote: "Hair extensions are gone and soon these implants are about to be evicted. I feel lighter. Free.
"And Maybe someday I’ll be brave enough to share the “Before” photo with you all … until then make YOU a priority."
Emily is married to Shane Simpson and the couple share three kids: daughter Annabelle and twins Luke and Keller.
She is also the stepmother of Shane's two kids from a previous marriage: Shelby and Chanel.
