Model Amber Rose showed off her stunning weight loss on Instagram Dec. 14, and said it took her 10 months to lose the baby weight after giving birth to son Sebastian.
The 5-foot-8 Rose revealed she tipped the scales at 202 pounds while pregnant. She gave birth in February 2013, and slimmed down by following a portion-controlled diet, doing yoga, and working out with a trainer 90 minutes a day.
Amber, 30, said celebrities who lose baby weight in record time give false hope to new moms, who often struggle with weight loss.
She also underscored that she lost weight naturally — through diet and exercise — and did not resort to plastic surgery. Rose advised fans via Instagram to not jeopardize their health just for a number on the scale:
I'm almost at my goal weight. Just 7 pounds to go! Absolutely no surgery, just diet & exercise. Most celebs give u false hope when u have a baby ( My son was 9 lbs) and in 3 months ur supposed to be skinny again...
It's not realistic in most cases. It takes 6 weeks to heal before u could even work out. Anyway, the moral of the story is losing baby weight the natural way takes longer but it's much healthier for ur body and helps u stay strong to carry another baby. So don't put ur life at risk for societies standards of when ur suppose to lose ur pregnancy weight. Take ur time & don't take the easy way out."
Amber, who's married to rapper Wiz Khalifa, exercised and followed a healthy diet (she ate everything, just not huge portions) while pregnant, which made it easier to regain her pre-baby body.
"I work out every day," she said. “It’s hard to get off baby weight. It’s a different kind of weight because for nine months you stretch your stomach out, and then it’s hard to get that back."
