Chrissy Teigen has done it once again.
Being an absolute legend and sharing her honesty about how celebrities shed their baby weight so fast.
What We Need To Know
We’ve always been desperate to know how celebs lose their baby weight so damn fast! As mums, we try and work around our sleep deprivation, kids tantrums and do everything Healthy Mummy style but we need to realise that it will NEVER happen overnight.
You want to know why? Because it’s not normal. And Chrissy tells us why.
“Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything,” Teigen said. “So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody’s losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be the ones who are out there. We have nutritionists, we have dieticians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies. We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that’s normal, or like that’s realistic.”
It’s Not Normal
It’s definitely NOT normal to lose your baby weight overnight. It took you 9 months to put it on while you grew a human inside your body and we should be realistic about the time it takes to shed. When you’re a tired mama, it can be disheartening to see all these celebs in an unrealistic size 2, seven weeks after giving birth. We applaud Chrissy for being so open and honest about it.
She also speaks about how fixated society has become on appearances alone, that our mental state is pushed aside. She says
“I think a lot of the mood stuff that happens afterwards isn’t really talked about, whether it’s postpartum depression or really just, for me, some days, I wouldn’t know how to cope with work and juggle things and still have time for a husband life,” she said. “And that was really tough for me, and I think just the mere act of losing those endorphins, I think I was slightly cursed by having such a great pregnancy and being so happy and having so much energy, that just the decline of all those endorphins, and all the prenatals and everything I was on and how healthy I was, naturally made my mood change. There were periods where you get super dark.”
Please don’t stop being you, Chrissy. We love it.
