On having a hard time accepting her pregnancy weight gain:
‘I gained like 40 lbs. That’s hard for an actress who’s spent her whole life trying to always lose that last 10. I tried to be as healthy as I could about it and not go crazy and go over the top with weight gain, but I still gained a lot for me.’
On the hardest part of being pregnant:
‘What was rough with the pregnancy was just the terror of the weight gain.’
On another thing that bothered her while pregnant – having bigger boobs:
‘My boobs just got so ginormous. It was horrifying! I’ve always had fairly large breasts, but [I went from a] DD to an I. Did you know that an I even existed in bra sizes? I didn’t. I didn’t know that until I started having to buy bra sizes in an I. That’s D, E, F, G, H, I -that’s horrifying.’
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.’
Supermodel queen Gisele Bundchen is known for opting for a very restrictive diet, one that is mostly raw and void of sugar. The mom of two implements almost the same diet when it comes to her kids, which is why she is very much against Halloween candy.
More details on this story from People Magazine:
Forget eating her kids’ Halloween candy, Gisele Bündchen not only didn’t steal any of her children’s haul, but she gave it all away! The supermodel mom made an appearance at the grand opening of the Under Armour Boston Brand House in the Prudential Center on Wednesday evening, and explained that son Benjamin and daughter Vivian (who dressed as Mario and a pony, respectively) were so uninterested in their Halloween haul, they let their mom give it away.
“We don’t really have that a kind of sugar in our house,” Bündchen told PEOPLE. “I let them try one (piece), but they really only had one bite and then they didn’t want it anymore. So I told them if they didn’t like it I was going to give it away to other kids and they actually let me give their candy away,” she added of her and Tom Brady‘s kids.
But don’t feel bad for Bündchen’s kids; they still get to eat dessert every day.
“It’s a little different kind of sweets, so they’re not used to it,” said Bündchen. “I said to them, ‘You know, there are so many kids that don’t get candy and you guys got so many, some kids don’t even get one! And they’re like, ‘Oh mom, okay you can give it to them if they don’t get any.’”
What do you think of Gisele’s very restrictive diet approach? Moderation is better or perfectly reasonable?
On how weight criticism made her stay away from the Internet for 9 years:
I gave birth to my son and I needed to do press afterwards for Spider Man 3. So two weeks after giving birth, I had gained quite a bit of weight and everyone had been, you know, really nice up until that point. And I remember going onto a message board and thinking “Oh the premiere was last night what are they going to say?”‘ But it was intense. And I remember feeling gutted, shutting the computer and just saying “never again”. I think in a way that’s a little bit why I stayed away from social media for so long.’
There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever). There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all). There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer’s are just too dang short for this summer’s thighs. Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It’s all love (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.) Peace xx #noshame #lovewhatyouhavebeengiven
