Beyonce: “I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds”


On how she lost 65 pounds and is currently 130 pounds:

I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body. I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body. I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back. I know that there’s so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth. You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself. I don’t have any shame about being sexual. I’m not embarrassed about it, and I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have.

Beyonce a month before giving birth, at almost ‘195 pounds’:

  1. «I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have.»

    Kudos to her! 🙂 I totally agree! She’s such a powerful woman, she can love her baby more than everything and still have her life, even though I think her money can be a big help in this!

  2. B, please. She did not look that big at all. I still believe she had a surrogate, which would have been totally fine if she had been honest about it. Statements like that just seem disrespectful to women who actually went through pregnancy.

    • well have you seen her in the videos of her new album? her body looks absolutely amazing even when she has very little clothes on. so yes i do believe she is around 130lbs especially because you can see she is very toned and muscles have more density than fat.

        • Agree 100 percent lc, she is not a small built woman. She has big thighs and a large bottom half. that is just a fact, I don’t understand why everyone is taking offense to lc’s comment. Beyonce isn’t a small woman like say Kylie Minouge or Rachel Bisson. Beyonce has a larger build, that isn’t an insult, it’s just an honest observation. Her legs are very thick. She looks at least a good 140 pounds. that has more to do with her body frame, which isn’t a small one. I have also seen her in person and she isn’t small.

  3. I’ve seen her in person recently and she’s smaller than she seems in photos. Her legs are much slimmer too. After seeing her l absolutely believe she’s 130lbs.

  4. After watching her HBO documentary I am completely in love with her as a role model, entertainer and just general quality human being, haha. But seriously. She has made some wise choices, I see a good heart in her.

    • Yeah I’m sorry but there’s no way. I just don’t believe it. It’s almost as bad (almost) as when Kim K. said she was a size 2.

      • Yeah and her clothes labels were all size ten twelve.
        I think beyonce is probably 140, which is toned and thin for how tall she is. I don’t see why celebrities all lie their height and weight, they could normalize numbers if they wanted.

        • Exactly. There’s nothing wrong with weighing around 140, especially for her height, seeing as she isn’t *that* short. Plus, she has a lot of muscle, apparently. I don’t know why celebrities always lie about their weight, it’s as is they think we’re all stupid lol.

    • Yep I am 5’6″ and 145 (granted its a lot of muscle mass) but beyonce too looks like she has a fair amount of muscle mass. Absolutely no way she is that light!

      • My ex& I had 3 boys. She was SKINNY for the 1st @ 5’2″ 95lbs. She gained 50lbs every X. She looks skinny @110. NO WAY Beyonce ever been under 140. I figure +9lbs per inch for guys. I’m usually 5’11 210. So if a guy weighs a muscular [email protected] 6’2″, we’re roughly the same.

    • Was thinking the same.. I’m 5’7 and 141 and I look thinner than her. Allegedly, Katy Perry is 5’7, 130 lbs, and she looks skinnier than Beyoncé, too..

  5. Um, she is NOT 130. Why do they lie about it, what is the big deal. She’s got some thick muscular legs, and even is she is 5’3 instead of the 5’6 she claims, she’s not 130.

    • I have always had thick muscular legs…like Beyonce but more shapely, and my butt is big and so are my hips and boobs…and people always would think I weighed more because of those things. I was always around the 115-130 (highest weight) mark…and I am 5’3. I was in a size 2.

      I think that people who havent been big, dont understand what a smaller person can weight. I have now gotten to the point of being waaay too big for my frame at 160ish and I can tell you NOW I am big and thick. Beyonce is small. Lol. I would love to be as ‘thick’ as her.

  6. Saw her recently … 1. she’s not 5″7. I’d say 5″5.5. 2. she’s tiiiiny her legs are smaller than I have ever seen them. 3. who cares what she weighs her body is crazy and she is bloody amazing.

    • She claims 5’6.5”, but most places have her at 5’6” or slightly under. Her sister is a model and 5’8″ and she’s more than 1″ shorter than Solange.

      I do think she’s under 140lbs.

  7. The only way she was 65lbs heavier during her pregnancy would be if her baby was 65lbs, If you don’t count the baby bump, she looked almost exactly the same. I’m not a conspiracy theorist but the there’s something fishy about her pregnancy and I wouldn’t be shocked if it all turned out to be a lie. Other than that, her quote makes sense, but she’s just trying to be relatable, No one with that amount of money and that huge ego can relate to regular people. Despites not looking like it, I do like her body and some of her songs, I just don’t buy her PR.

  8. I’ve always liked Beyonce ! Funny though, the maximum weight she’s reached is about 90kg and now she’s about 60kg. That’s exactly where I’ve started and where I’m going, only I wasn’t pregnant and I’m 5’11” 🙂

  9. I think she’s more like 5’6 max and if you see her in recent pictures or in her new videos she’s def. slimmer than ever. I’m 5’7 125 lbs and i look just a bit slimmer. But the photos in this post are old!

  10. I’m a conspiracy loving mofo but I honestly DON’T think she has had a surrogate. Her hips and stomach do look like she has given birth. Her body has changed.

  11. She can be sexual all she wants….In the privacy of her own bedroom. What are you trying to prove by exposing yourself as much as she does? She’s become desperately insecure since she had a kid.

  12. I absolutely love beyonce. maybe she exaggerated the weight loss a little but a) does it really matter and b) none of us could actually know for sure, i know people who lose a lot of weight and don’t look much lighter and people who gain muscle mass and end up being like 20 pounds heavier but appear to be slimmer. the scale is crazy. i think she looks good

  13. my friend was on her show maybe 4-5 years ago and she sayes B is much more slimmer in person..and she is even slimmer now might be..maybe 135..?

    • Yeh. Most celebs are way small in person. Beyonce is believably 5’5-5’6, between 128-135 lbs. She has a small waist and small shoulders, and short muscular legs. She looks amazing body wise in that Tom Ford outfit (albeit tacky as hell). I find her obnoxious too, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t bump her music on the elliptical machine 🙂

  14. I never comment on here, but I really needed to after seeing some of these comments. Jeeshh some of you act like Beyonce is a fat cow or something. Just my opinion, but she looks fairly fit to me, not too big or too small, and her abs are pretty legit. Not a Beyonce fan by the way. Plus I love how people who say she cannot be 130 lbs are the ones who find it appalling if someone comments that a VS weighs over a 120 lbs. Everyone carries weight differently… Ok, pertaining to her quote about sexuality, do what you want, we don’t care, just don’t start twerking and stripping in your videos like Rihanna and Miley do, and we have no issues with you, even though you act like you’re the greatest human being to have ever existed :p

    • Agree! I weigh 140lbs and people do Not believe I weigh that much. Most assume I don’t weigh more than 125lbs. I workout so it may be why. But people really do carry their weight differently.

    • Not one person called her “fat” or a “cow” stop putting words into other peoples mouths. The fact remains she is not a small built woman like many here are trying to say, that has nothing to do with size but to do with her natural body frame. Nobody is calling her “fat” so please get off your soap box and be quiet.

      • Calm down “anon”. I said some of you act like she is… I didn’t say anyone called her one. She may not be small built, but she’s not built big either. Well in my opinion she is not. In fact I actually think she is on the thinner side, except the fact her thighs are a bit thicker, but Beyonce is on the way slimmer side lately, and are you kidding me? I’ve seen many fat comments about her all the time. Also don’t tell me to be quiet, I am allowed to have an opinion just as much as you are, thank you very much “anon”. I refuse to leave my soap box btw.

  15. I do think she is 130lbs. I don’t believe she carried her baby though, but meh! Why would she care what I think.

    I agree that we all have sexuality as a power or whatever…and its great that women are more comfortable with that. However I still stick by the fact that I feel it is more pushed onto girls and woman and is a form of exploitation rather being empowering, like it is sold these days. Not only that, it’s so Boring! What is so interesting in sexuality these days! Its not even taboo anymore! Most of us (I wont say all, because not everyone does)…but most of us are sexual in one way of another…whether we look ‘sexual’ by media standards, our own standards, other people standards, or maybe we don’t look sexual, maybe we don’t feel sexual per se, maybe we just have sex! heck, there are plenty of people being born so I’m pretty sure there is a lot of sexual vibes going around! Lol.

    I’m not trying to be negative and I think its great if more people are comfortable with their sexuality these days (I actually don’t think more people are…even if they are appear to be…I think the media sexualising everything has actually worked against individual’s sexual beliefs and identities and more people are confused now). Anyway, I don’t mean to be negative but there is just so much SEX SEX SEX! Look I’m sexy! Look I have SEX! Wow! Sex!…it’s just like…is there ANYTHING left in this world besides an obsession with sex and sexuality? I get sex is a pleasure etc… I get that people like to be sexual…but there is a line between healthy and obsessed…and I think the world is obsessed. It’s sad.
