Jessica Simpson wants you to know that she didn’t lose 100 pounds in a matter of days.

During a recent interview on “The Real,” the singer and entrepreneur revealed that losing weight takes three years and “determined patience.”

“I believe in setting small goals for yourself because in my life and how I’ve done it, there’s easy ways to throw in the towel and just feel like it’s impossible,” Simpson said. “So the small goals for me are what helped me achieve the main goal.”

“I have gained and lost 100lbs 3x so I never thought this moment could or would happen, but I’m finally spring breakin’ wearin’ a BIKINI!!!!!!” she captioned a photo of herself in a bikini on her verified Instagram account in early April.

“Hard work, determination, self love,” the caption continued. “I enjoyed a good proud cry today.”
“being in a bikini was never my goal” she remarked on the show, but she was really pleased of herself.
Simpson claims to gain a lot of weight while pregnant, which is exactly what she did while carrying her now 3-year-old daughter Birdie.

“I enjoy pregnancy,” Simpson added, “but this last one was really hard for me,” “”I don’t know if it was because I was older, hormones and all kinds of stuff, but whoa, Birdie gave me a brutal stretch.
