Emily underwent hip surgery on October 28 and has battled depression after the severe pain from her condition left her “completely unmotivated”.
But the Real Housewives of Orange County star has made amazing progress after enlisting the help of trainer Paulina Taylor Hefferan to get in shape.
On Friday, Emily shared two shots of herself carrying one of her twin sons.
She looked svelte in black leggings and a black top with ruched shoulders.

In a lengthy post, Emily thanked her trainer for helping her drop 15lbs, adding: “I still have more to go but I’m enjoying the journey!”
Emily said: “I was in chronic pain, I was depressed and I weighed more than I ever have in my whole life!
“I reached out to Paulina and asked her for her help. I had no idea where to start. I felt lost.
“She helped me change my lifestyle and has taught me so much about balance. She has also encouraged me to not give up and keep going.”
The mum-of-three said she wanted to set a good example for her kids.
She said: “I haven’t felt this good in a long time and with a new hip, and 15 pounds off I’m finally able to keep up with my kids and be more active!”

It comes amid reports her marriage to husband Shane is struggling after he failed the California bar exam for the fourth time.
The Real Housewives of Orange County spouse took the test in July 2019, RadarOnline.com reports, but yet again he failed to pass.
Shane’s marriage troubles with Emily have featured prominently in the show, and news of his bar flop was first reported by All About The Tea.
Earlier in the year, Emily, 54, and Shane, 44, had a bust-up after he returned from a week away to take the California Bar Exam.
Emily told her husband: “I have trouble with the way that you talk to me sometimes.
“I don’t like the condescending tone. It’s sarcasm all the time. I get tired of being the butt of all your jokes sometimes.”
