28-year-old fiancée of Rob Kardashian Blac China became a mom for the second time less than two weeks ago and the ‘video vixen’ has already lost 23 pounds. 12 days after giving birth to Dream, the reality star, who is 5’2” / 157 cm had revealed her post baby weight: she was down from 192lbs to 169lbs. The curvy star said on Snapchat:
’39 lbs go away!!! Lost 23 lbs so far!!! Goal 130 post baby weight!’
A few months back, Black China was quotes saying that her goal was to gain 100 pounds during her pregnancy and to snap back in shape super fast:
‘Like no lie, my goal is to gain 100 lbs. this pregnancy. I’mma tear it up, and then I’mma snap back.’
Mom-of-two Drew Barrymore recently opened up in an interview about her 20 pound weight loss. The bubbly 41 year-old actress, who is 5’4”/ 163 cm says that she currently weighs 124 lbs:
On how she achieved the weight 20 pound weight loss:
I’ve been very disciplined and all I did was cry and dream about pizza. I still am dreaming and crying about pizza.
On her weight:
I was 144 and now I’m 124. I did it on the filming of a Netflix show [Santa Clarita Diet]. I feel really great. I followed Kimberly Snyder’s methods, but I added some protein like fish and chicken since she’s all vegetarian or vegan.
On her future plans:
The holidays are coming up, so I’m going to enjoy some of that stuffing!
On losing 70 lbs and reaching her goal weight of 120 pounds:
“I’m definitely to my goal weight… definitely down way more than I expected. The Atkins diet is so easy to me, because there are so many sweets and treats and stuff to keep you satisfied along the way.”
… says Kim, who gave birth to her second child in December.

The 43-year-old actress went from 172 pounds to 126 pounds after giving birth to her daughter Elizabella 16 months ago, thanks, in part, to the Atkins low-carbohydrate diet (she is 5’2”).
“I feel so much better than I did before it’s crazy,” Milano told ET. “You know that feeling when you’re dieting where your stomachs growling and you’re angry and moody? There’s none of that, because you’re getting fats and proteins. It’s great!”
With two young children at home (Milo, 4, and Elizabella, 1), dropping the weight makes it easier for her to keep up with her growing family with husband Dave Bugliari. She opened up about what motherhood has been like for her.
“Every aspect is amazing,” she gushed. “I looked at Milo’s feet the other day. He’s got these two toes that cross each other, and I was looking at my husband’s feet. Those are where those toes came from!”
One aspect that has been particularly rewarding for Milano is being able to breastfeed.
“It’s been a joyous time to be able to feed them,” she said.
The actress has come under fire for posting pictures of herself breastfeeding, but she considers the practice to be a beautiful thing.
“It is just an amazing process that my body is giving her nourishment,” she said. “Women — we are the most perfect machine ever made.”
As much as she enjoys using her body to feed her children, Milano cleared up the misconception that breastfeeding helped her lose weight.
“I don’t know who started that myth, but breastfeeding to me makes it harder,” she said.
It’s like the Green Bay Packers’ front line, know what I mean? But it’s hard. I used to buy stretch pants size 11, 12. I’d stretch them into a 20. It didn’t matter, because the tag said 12 and that’s what counts.
On opting for vertical gastric sleeve surgery:
Believe it or not, that surgery changed my life. It doesn’t reroute your intestines. You have no issue with going to the bathroom in public. But your relationship with food ends. For me, it’s been two years. It used to be on Halloween, the week before, I would start sweating until Christmas, because I had huge problems not going and stealing their candy. I couldn’t be in bed and go downstairs … there would be four bags of candy. I couldn’t help myself. And now? This year, the whole trick-or-treat, I had one lollipop. I don’t feel that same pull for it. They told me the part of the stomach they remove have hunger hormones in it, called ghrelins. And that changes the way you think and feel about food. I feel so much freer now in terms of needing to move and play with my kids.
On the benefits of her weight loss:
I don’t have sleep apnea anymore. I’m able to run and play with the kids or get a bathing suit. … It’s not easy to be obese in America and have everyone feel free to ridicule you. When I was in the midst of some of my spat wars with some Republican candidates, that was always one of the first things that was said. And now it’s like a different reality. We’ll see how long it lasts.
On why she was determined to lose the weight:
I had a heart attack at 50. When I woke up, they said, ‘You should have died. We need you to lose 50 lbs. in the next year, but you can’t have surgery or anything in the next year because you’ve had a heart attack. So for the year I tried, and I’ve been trying my whole life. When I was 35 I got on my show, and that’s when I got over 200 lbs. Before that I was about 175, on League of Their Own, or 170. When I got my show I was over 200. It was a lot of pressure and a lot of stress. And then one year after my heart attack I had the vertical sleeve surgery because my doctors said if I didn’t, I would have another heart attack. And there was a very good chance I would not survive.
