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.
