It's no secret that Jessica Simpson has struggled with her weight—particularly in the public eye. 

"I worked really hard," the 34-year-old blond beauty tells InStyle's January issue of her struggle to drop 70 pounds following the birth of her two children, which she successfully accomplished prior to tying the knot with husband Eric Johnson in July. 

"I wanted to appreciate being in a wedding gown again. I wanted to enjoy it like I did the first time. But I didn't have a weight goal; I just wanted to look healthy." 

Simpson, who announced that she had reached her goal weight in May with the help of Weight Watchers, has proudly showed off her post-baby bod (for good reason, girl looks great!), but she admits her self-confidence hasn't always come so easily.

"I'd been scrutinized about my weight before I got pregnant, so I refused to let anyone steal the joy of my babies," she explains. "My husband [Eric] and I were looking at old pictures recently, and I asked him, 'Babe, why didn't you tell me to put the brownie down?' He said, 'You looked great.' He's always loved every curve on my body. And we've always had a healthy sex life." 

The fashion designer, who admits that she no longer has time to wash her face both morning and night, sticks to a strict workout regime in order to maintain her super svelte shape. 

"I work out five days a week: three days with a trainer, doing a mix of strength training and cardio, and then I do cardio on my own the other two days," she shares. "Somehow I make it work, but I've slowed down since my wedding."

As for whether the mother of two plans to have more children? 

"I don't think so. Having two kids back-to-back was hard on my body," she says before adding with a laugh, "But if I do have more, I wouldn't want them to read this and think they weren't wanted!" 

Congrats on achieving your weight loss goals, Jess. You look fab!
