The new mom has a totally enviable sense of post-baby body peace — and she’s putting no pressure on herself to snap right back to her former figure. She is embracing her new bod and skipping the stress in favor of spending time with her little girl!
Kristen Bell welcomed her little girl Lincoln with fiance Dax Shepard on March 28 — and she has just about the coolest baby-weight loss philosophy ever. She’s even endearingly calling her lingering baby weight her “Lincoln Leftovers.” The petite new mama is the cover star of the September issue of Redbook magazine and she dishes about her killer post-baby body mantra and totally relaxed weight loss journey!
Kristen Bell’s Baby Weight Loss Outlook — She Embraces Her Post-Baby Body
Kristen gained 43 pounds while she was pregnant — and through a healthy diet and “low-impact workouts,” she is down to her final 15. Still, she definitely isn’t going to be stressing those few extra pounds — even if it goes against the grain.
“I’d like to get back down to where I was before the baby,” she tells Redbook. “But if this is where my body wants to be, so be it. I’m not going to make myself miserable for the rest of my life trying to get back to where I was before.”
Where does she get that killer confidence?! She tells Redbook:
I refused to worry about something I could not change, and I still refuse. Look, I’m like any other woman. All this evolved b.s. that I’m telling you is my mantra: It’s not something I practice naturally. I had to surrender to not worrying about the way I looked, how much I weighed, because that’s just part of the journey of having a baby. I am not a woman whose self-worth comes from her dress size.
We love that!
Kristen Bell Tweets About Her Post-Baby Body
Kristen’s remaining pounds of baby weight aren’t even an issue to this mama. “I like my Lincoln Leftovers because they’re proof I did something extraordinary,” Kristen tweeted on July 26. She followed up with “I gave life to my new BFF & she gave me a comical amount of midsection skin.”
Proving that her post-bay body is in competition with no one, she also tweeted, “I’m proud to sit out of the baby weight rat race.”
