RHOC’s Emily Simpson, 44, talks 16-pound-weight loss and plans to remove her breast implants: ‘I am no longer categorized as obese’
She has been open about her struggles with body image on The Real Housewives Of Orange County.
And over the weekend, Emily Simpson revealed a 16 pound weight loss and the next step in her journey towards bettering her health: removing her breast implants.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the 44-year-old gets candid with her 378,000 fans as she discusses her body battles as she added a photo of her working out in black leggings and a grey top.

‘It’s been a JOURNEY to get to this point right here. Ups and downs. Gains and losses,’ she wrote.
‘Currently 16 pounds down. Body fat percentage 10% lower than last year. And no longer categorized as “obese.”‘
Simpson, who made her debut on Real Housewives in 2018, moves on to tell her followers that when it comes to someone’s health journey, ‘There’s no right way to start. There’s no magic plan or magic pill. You just have to dig deep and make yourself a priority.’

All natural: ‘Hair extensions are gone and soon these implants are about to be evicted’
She goes on to write that her first big step was contacting a weight loss coach by the name of Paulina Taylor Hefferan, whom she asked for help.
The mother of five said, ‘Sometimes we become too overwhelmed with life, kids, depression, weight gain, hormones, relationships, illnesses etc…but you have to start somewhere.
‘Make today that day. A year from now will pass by regardless. Might as well make it your healthiest yet.’

Simpson continued, ‘I still have more work to do to get to my ultimate goal. But I’m enjoying the the journey and relishing the successes. And I still enjoy an Egg McMuffin occasionally too (it’s all about balance!)’.
In what is the biggest reveal in her entire post, she writes that her hair extensions are gone and ‘soon these implants are about to be evicted. I feel lighter. Free. And maybe someday I’ll be brave enough to share the ‘before’ photo with you all…until then make YOU a priority, heart emojis.’
It is unclear when Simpson plans to pull the trigger on this procedure. Even during a pandemic elective surgeries have been on the rise, with celebrities like Chrissy Teigen also going under the knife to remove implants.
Last year, the body positive attorney teamed up with SunKitten swimwear and RHOC alum Lizzie Rovsek, to create a series of flattering swimsuits for curvy women. They hope to start on production again soon.
