Mariah Carey gained a whopping 70 lbs. while she was pregnant with her twins Monroe and Moroccan — and she’s dropped it all, giving all the credit to Jenny Craig.

“I’m proud of how hard I worked to get my body back,” she said on The Rosie Show in Nov. 2011. “I had to do this for me.”

Congrats, Mariah! You look great!
