She’s rightly proud of her efforts to slim down so when Jessica Simpson slipped into a swimsuit for Memorial Day yesterday (May 26) she made sure to get a photograph.

The “With You” singer posted the stunning shot to her Instagram account along with the message, “If I’m in a bathing suit I should pose proudly.”

Simpson dropped 70 pounds after having her son Ace, and she couldn’t be happier about her shape these days.

Jessica previously stated, "I was so insecure—I couldn't even believe what I weighed. I don't think that I ever expected myself to see the numbers that I have seen on the scale."

Moreover, she said, ladies shouldn’t fret over gaining pregnancy weight- "You are creating a life, and honestly, it's not easy. It is a really hard thing to go through. And you deserve to eat your ice cream. You deserve to have your pancakes. Do whatever you want to do and then afterwards just know that you have to work really hard.”

“I had to learn that with my first and second pregnancy. My first pregnancy I ate a lot more, but my second pregnancy...I ate what I wanted to eat but I stayed active, and I think because I had gained so much weight with my first that I had to stay active throughout my second because I didn't know what to do with myself if I didn't."
