Jessica Simpson better get used to turning heads with her fit new physique. After hitting her goal weight last month, the star continues to work on her slim-down, stepping out in bright dresses that really showcase the result of all her hard work.

Most recently, she hit the red carpet in a slim-fitting yellow dress at the John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit in L.A. that got people buzzing, so we asked: What’s the key to the Weight Watchers spokeswoman’s continued success? As it turns out, diet and exercise (imagine that!); she’s still sticking to her points and remaining active at the same time, says a source close to Simpson.

That means working out with trainer Harley Pasternak for 45 minutes three days a week, focusing on “everything. She needs to look good all over,” the source says. When she can’t meet with Pasternak, “She goes for walks with her kids and her [fiancé] because she likes to keep moving when she’s not with him. She’s very adamant about making sure she’s active when he’s not around so she tries to get in 10,000 steps a day.”

Also a major component in Simpson’s ability to stay fit? Finding exercise that’s fun for her. “She likes walking in her neighborhood and people often see her doing that,” the source says. “She really enjoys the workouts. [Because] she loves it, she’s consistent. It’s the one constant in her life that she’s always done no matter whats happening.”

And — as Simpson’s svelte physique demonstrates — all that work is paying off. “There were pictures of her in Daisy Dukes the other day!” the source says. “She looks phenomenal.”

What do you think Simpson’s new slimmed-down style? Are you impressed by her results?

Ok you don’t need a personal chef or trainers. I lost 80lbs on my own working a full time job mostly 60hr weeks, going to school, and running after kids all the time. I MADE time to get my body the way I wanted it

like she has anything better to do all day than work out , i wonder if she has even changed a diaper yet on her own ? this photo is weird actually, the photog was very close and shot from a high angle with a short lens which makes her legs and feet look miniature.

diet can make you thin but it does not get rid of the things two pregnancies that you have gained 80+ pounds from! imhp she does not look good, her face used to be so naturally beautiful, now it looks like all the rest of the plastic celebs….fake and unnatural.

So many catty nasty women on these pages. Get off your azzes and do something besides sitting in front of the computer thinking of nasty things to say because you’re jealous of someone else’s success. Put the easter candy down, it goes in the kid’s basket anyway, and take a walk, or in many cases I’m sure, a waddle.

It’s so funny to read the comments. She has done the work- hard work of dieting and working out and she looks good. But could ALL the MANY hater give her credit??? No, jealousy won’t allow that. Having said all sort of hateful things, days after she gave birth- now they are having to look at how good she looks. So now it’s, she is photo shopped- she is lucky cuz she’s rich and has a personal trainer/chef…..! It is so amazing how people find so many reasons why they too, can’t get off the couch- or the chair they sit in- on the computer while eating chips, and get in shape. She looks FABULOUS, is so beautiful and has two adorable kids. Way to go. She makes me want to work hard and get into great shape too.

PS: Cassie- that is GREAT! You too are an inspiration to me. Way to work hard, even though you have a job and kids to care for as well.

I’m not a celebrity and I certainly don’t have a nanny or chef and I work part time, but I got in shape after my kids were born. It’s just living a healthy an balanced lifestyle, watching what you eat, regular exercise. Your diet determines the way you look. It doesn’t have to be expensive or all time consuming. You do NOT need a chef and a nanny to be able to get in shape!
