Jessica Simpson's Weight Loss Journey: Embracing Willpower and Authenticity

Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson recently shared her thoughts on her weight loss journey, dismissing rumors that she had relied on Ozempic, a medication known for its weight loss side effect. The 42-year-old pop singer, happily married to football player Eric Johnson and mother to Maxie (11), Ace (10), and Birdie (4), has been focused on her well-being, maintaining her sobriety and achieving a slimmer figure in recent months. Despite the speculations, she credited her success to sheer willpower and not any medication.

Speaking to Bustle, Jessica Simpson addressed the claims, saying, "Oh Lord. I mean, it is not Ozempic, it's willpower. I'm like, do people want me to be drinking again? Because that's when I was heavier. Or they want me to be having another baby? My body can't do it! It hurts. Am I going to let the negativity derail me? No, I'm too old for that. I am too connected to myself right now to let that derail me. It doesn't mean that it doesn't hurt."

While Jessica Simpson has taken a step back from her music career since 2010, she has ventured into the world of fashion design with her brand, Jessica Simpson Collection. She emphasized that her personal experiences of fluctuating sizes have provided her with a deeper understanding of her consumers.

In 2015, Jessica Simpson's brand was sold to parent company Sequential. However, when the company filed for bankruptcy in 2021, she decided to take matters into her own hands and bought back her brand. She saw this as an opportunity for growth and independence, acknowledging that it was time to either "sink or swim" on their own.

"I talked to my mom in-depth about it, and I was like, I think it's time for us to do this on our own. We either sink with the ship or we jump and hope to find a lifesaver. And really, that lifesaver was ourselves," Jessica Simpson explained.
