Ciara Calls 60-Pound Weight Loss After Giving Birth 'Empowering'

| Filed under: Baby BlabberCiaraFitnessHealthBody

Ciara explains why losing weight was empowering.

Baby weight is always hard to lose, but for some stars it's a priority.

Ciara gained 60 pounds while pregnant with now two-year-old son Future Zahir, and she claims that losing all the weight within four months was "empowering".

Speaking with People, the singer admitted:

"After delivering my son, a 9-lb. 10-oz. baby, and gaining 60 lbs., I was committed to [returning] to how I felt before I had him. Four months after having him, I was back to my original shape. There's something very empowering about that. Something about that gave me an extra pep in my step, and motivated me even more to go harder."

A four-month snapback is AH-Mazing! And probably a little unrealistic for the average woman who's not a celebrity.

CiCi, however, also talks about how maintaining her figure is part of her job, which explains how and why she bounced back so quickly after baby.

She said:

"I think when it comes to your body, it's all about the goals you set for yourself. I can honestly say when I first started my career, I weighed almost 20 lbs. more than I weigh now. Being healthy was a commitment for me. As a performer, I have to stay in shape, so it's become a way of life for me."

We'd love to know exactly how she lost all that extra weight. We're imagining a lot of really grueling workouts and a lot of kale!

The 30-year-old unfortunately did not give away her secrets! LOLz!
