On losing weight after giving birth:
It took nine months to (put on), so it should take nine months to get off. I wanted fettuccine Alfredo, I didn’t want a barbell. I didn’t even want to think about (weight loss) until I immersed myself in babyhood. I wouldn’t look at my kids and be like, “I have a free hour, I’m going to work out!”.
I was like, ‘Don’t talk to me about how fast and fabulous you are or it came off. That was not my experience. I’m having to work my a## off until I even think about getting it off.

Supermodel Lara Stone, who welcomed her fist child in May last year, recently opened up about pregnancy and body image:
Pregnancy is supposed to be the most amazing time in a woman’s life. We’ve all heard stories of the glowing expectant mum, with toned legs and neat bump and the instant and deep connection with her unborn baby. I’m sure those pregnancies exist, but mine certainly wasn’t like that.
I was in maternity jeans at nine weeks. I was bloated all over, had limp, greasy hair, no energy and I could eat (and waddle) for England. I felt terrible for feeling this way because I actually had an easy pregnancy. I had no morning sickness, no bleeding, no pain and my baby and I were perfectly healthy. Yet I didn’t get that earth mother feeling I’d been hoping for.
There is so much pressure these days to look fantastic during pregnancy and to lose the baby weight within days of leaving hospital. I have nothing against those who do, but it’s not normal.
Your body changes hugely during a pregnancy and it takes time to go back. I’ve had lots of ups and downs regarding my body image over the past year. On every level I know I should just be happy to have a lovely healthy baby, and I do count my blessings every day.
But seeing articles about me that say: “She’s brave to go outside looking like that”, “She’s struggling with her baby weight”, “Is she pregnant again?”, or “She can kiss her career goodbye” is painful. And it sends a bad message to other women reading it, who may be feeling bad about their own baby weight.
