Shakira’s Stressful Baby Weight Loss

Posted by Alissa Robson

For singer and “The Voice” judge Shakira, going back to work quickly after baby had an added element of stress – reclaiming her pre-baby body.

“I knew I had to come back here to do The Voice two months after I had delivered a baby. I didn’t have my four months of maternity like every woman on earth has. I’m not trying to complain, but it’s been a process full of challenges.”

The new mom to baby boy Milan described the process of losing the weight as “stressful”, and says she notices a marked difference between moms today and those of her parents’ and grandparents’ generation when it comes to losing the extra weight.

“My dad says there’s nothing better than meat over the bones. So he likes my mom a little chubby,” she said. “She was never under the pressure to have to get to her old weight – and she never did.”

For Shakira, Zumba was her secret weapon for staying as fit as possible both during pregnancy and after, but she admits she has less time for it now, and is still a few pounds over her pre-baby weight.

Personally, we think Shakira should cut herself a little slack. Even though she’s a performer and on is on TV, she is more than just her body shape and her fans certainly understand what she’s been through in the past year. She’s done an incredible job of losing baby weight already, and we think there’s no reason to stress about a couple of extra pounds.
