“I just transitioned out of maternity jeans. I’m working on two years and I haven’t even lost all my weight. And those girls that do, they’re spending less time with their kids. I just wanted to hang out with my daughter 24 hours a day. … I will not be Tweeting photos of me in a bikini, let alone wear a bikini I think ever again in my life. … I know girls that just genetically it just drops off. I didn’t mean to offend the skinny people.”
Christina‘s talking about the baby—her baby—who was born in January of 2011, which is pretty refreshing when you think about it. You’ve got celebrities out there who drop the baby weight in unrealistic time frames (like, you know, ten days postpartum), and then you’ve got women who take it off gradually, and in some cases, not at all. I heard this thing once, and I don’t know if it’s true or if it’s an old wives tale, but “they” say that for as long as it takes your body to gestate a fetus, it takes twice, and in some cases, three times, as long for the woman’s body to return to “normal,” and by “normal,” I mean physically, mentally, emotionally, hormonally … you get the idea.
Anyway. I guess what I’m saying is “Good on you, Christina Applegate, for doing you and not really worrying all to much about what anyone else thinks.” I love when that kind of thing happens.
