Mariah Carey Showcases Post-baby Body
Mariah Carey is again making headlines. This time for getting her post-baby body back in just six months.
Carey is sharing her incredible weight-loss secrets as she headlines the cover for the May issue of ‘Shape Magazine’.
She shares, “I put on around 70 pounds, but if you look at photos of me when I was pregnant, you’d say, ‘Wow, she gained 9,000 pounds!,’” Mariah says candidly. “A lot of it was water weight because I pretty much had head-to-toe edema, which is very painful.”
Mariah confesses to choosing Jenny Craig to help her lose the weight because she liked “the structure” of the program.
“I used to be able to slim down just by exercising more, but that’s changed. Since having the babies, I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet,” she says about her current plan. “Today my workout routine is more about getting and staying toned. And for me, that means either taking hour-long walks a few times a week or jumping in the pool three or four days a week to do 45 minutes of aquatic exercises.”
And, for those eagerly waiting to hear Mariah’s music again, the pop star says she hopes to come out with a new album this year!
“I’ve started writing songs for a new album, which I hope will come out in 2012. Getting back in the studio and making music again — which I truly love doing — is the best way to end this crazy year.”Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
