KRISTEN BELL Refuses To Obsess Over The Baby Weight

Stars On The Set Of 'Veronica Mars'

Kristen Bell welcomed her daughter Lincoln just a few months ago, and like most normal women she hasn’t lost all of the baby weight yet.  But of course in Hollywood the pressure to regain your pre pregnancy body is ridiculous but Kristen refuses to obsess over it, which is such a welcome relief.  The actress spoke with Redbook magazine and opened up about her refusal to let her weight overwhelm everything else that is going on her life.

On obsessing about her baby weight:

“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.”

I love that statement so much! I also love that celebrities like Kristen are speaking up to say that women shouldn’t obsess about their weight post baby, but also that we shouldn’t expect them to be the same size 4 months after they have a baby than they were before they had they baby.  I wish someone would tell all the other celebrity mom’s the same thing!  I’m looking at you Kim Kardashian!
