How is losing nearly 60 lbs in just 3 months after shooting a baby out of your nether regions humanly possible outside of like, The Biggest Loser, where they eat about 600 calories and work out about 8 hours per day and have roughly 150 – 200+ pounds to lose, thereby making all of that easier (but still super unhealthy)? Well, that’s pretty much what Beyoncé is saying happened to her after Blue Ivy graced the world with her presence.
“I gained 57lbs when I was pregnant. I didn’t have a lot of time to lose the weight, because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again.
“I’m not a person that is naturally very thin. I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape. For me dancing is what keeps me active. Not everyone is supposed to be the same.
“Be healthy and take care of yourself, but be happy with the beautiful things that make you, you.”
Aight, I’m with the body positivity and appreciate that Bey is open about the fact that most Hollywood stars aren’t stick figures without either starving themselves and/or spending every spare second at a gym (or any other number of unsavory procedures that I probably can’t even fathom), but I also don’t believe that Beyoncé didn’t take part in that whole process if she lost 57 lbs in 3 months. I just don’t.
Of course, I’m waiting for some of y’all to pipe up with how she didn’t really lose that much because she didn’t gain that much because she was never really pregnant. I await you, naysayers. You make my days worth it.
