Emily shares her weight loss progress
Taking to her Instagram, Emily recently posted a before-and-current snap of herself side by side.
Each photo is a view of the 44-year-old from behind. The left shows Emily “before” and the right serves as her “current” photo.
It’s clear that her figure has slimmed down substantially and Emily took the opportunity to reflect on her time of change.
She started her caption stating, “Over the past year and a half, not only have I transformed physically but mentally as well. I’ve learned the true meaning of living a healthy balanced lifestyle.”
“I used to think you had to starve yourself and workout hours a day to see actual results. When I changed my mindset, that’s when the results came and they are STILL COMING!” she continued.
Emily then goes on to share how her personal trainer has helped her journey and provides a discount code to her followers for Black Friday.

In a previous comparison post on Instagram, Emily explained that her weight loss hasn’t just changed her body, but it’s also impacted her confidence as well.
“I never wanted to show these photos publically because Im [sic] ashamed of where I let myself get, but here I am showing my transformation because I want to be transparent with you all. I worked my butt off to get here and Im [sic] so proud of how far Ive [sic] come and continue to go!” she wrote.
“I lost myself and my confidence through gaining 30 lbs. in one year in front of millions of people on a Reality TV Show. Here I am a year and a half later feeling sexy, confident in my own skin, and like the EMILY I am meant to be!” she concluded the post.
