Jessica Simpson has become famous for her yo-yo dieting and weight ups and downs. 

In fact, the former Weight Watchers spokeswoman once admitted she's been "every size" over the years.

And as just reported, on Sept. 24, she shared a shocking post about her latest weight loss transformation. 

“6 months. 100 pounds down (Yes, I tipped the scales at 240 ),” she wrote on social media, gushing that she was “so proud to feel like myself again.”

“Even when it felt impossible, I chose to work harder,” she added. 

But when she’s tipping the scales at her heaviest, Simpson, 39, can always count on her husband, Eric Johnson, to be appreciative of her fuller figure and remain her biggest fan. 

"He's always loved every curve on my body, and we’ve always had a healthy sex life,” Simpson once boasted.

She dropped 50 pounds and showed off her post-baby body months after she gave birth to her daughter Maxwell in March 2012. “I let myself indulge in everything I wanted because it was the first time I was ever pregnant and I wanted to enjoy it,” the 5’4” star revealed. “I wanted to be happy and eat what I wanted.” Simpson treated herself to mac and cheese, among other treats, which contributed to her weight reaching more than 170 pounds by the time she was full-term.

As in the past, Simpson recently threw her energy into shedding weight. As reported in July, Simpson got it in her head she needed to lose 70 pounds as soon as possible. “She’s in the gym or running four hours per day, and counts every single calorie that passes her lips,” said a source during the summer. Due to her latest obsession, Simpson actually surpassed her goal and revealed on Sept. 24 that she’s dropped 100 pounds since giving birth to her daughter Birdie six months ago.
