“I lost most of my weight from breast-feeding and I encourage women to do it; it’s just so good for the baby and good for yourself.
“I counted calories. I worked out maybe three to four times a week. I did a lot walking in the beginning and now I’m running. But I had to work my way up. I couldn’t just go right from being pregnant to running.”
I’ve heard women swear by breastfeeding and others claim it’s a LIE. But Beyonce herself admitted to watching her diet and exercising in addition to breastfeeding, and I bet that’s the trick! Beyonce also said she pampered herself a little bit before giving birth.
“I did have a fresh eyebrow wax. I got my nails done, I got my feed done, had my hair done and I had my little lip gloss. I didn’t feel that I looked beautiful during birth but who does? After being pumped with all those fluids and gaining so much weight. I barely recognised myself. But after many hours of labor I could care less about anything but my child. I didn’t care how I looked.” [sic]
So true (and a great strategy, to me!)
