Zoe Saldana Details the Difficulty of Losing Pregnancy Weight in Note to Fans

Zoe Saldana grabs some take out on Sunday afternoon (April 26) in Hollywood.

The 36-year-old actress took to her Facebook earlier in the month to detail the struggles in losing her baby weight after giving birth to her twin sons last year.

The note detailed how much her body changed and how difficult it has been to lose the weight, noting that at her heaviest she was 185 pounds during her pregnancy.

“Bouncing back feels impossible, but I know it is important as a woman, and now a mommy, to not give up. I am determined to get my energy back and find balance for my body before these little guys start walking, and before I go back to work…..” Zoe wrote in the note.

FYI: Zoe is wearing Strom jeans.

Hi everyone,
As you all know, we welcomed twin boys last November. Yes, by far, the most amazing experience of my life, but also a very challenging experience when it pertains to my body. I’m sure moms across the world (and dads sometimes) can identify with what I’m about to say.

Your body changes dramatically, inside and out. You grow in places you never knew you could, and you are tired beyond belief. In some cases more than others, your body experiences a kind of trauma through childbirth that is difficult to explain unless you’ve had that experience. My case was like that, everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed. Thank God, we are all doing great now, but my body was really bent out of shape after the boys were born. Bouncing back feels impossible, but I know it is important as a woman, and now a mommy, to not give up. I am determined to get my energy back and find balance for my body before these little guys start walking, and before I go back to work….. my clock is ticking!

2 months ago I started my journey, and its been REAL- I’m not gonna lie- it is slow…. painful… and frustrating. But it is worth it.

And that is why I’m here… I know many of you have gone through this or are going through it as we speak. Let’s do it together. Let’s talk about it, hear each other out, and seek advice when we need it. I have my friend of many years and trainer, Steve Moyer that will be guiding me and sometimes training me for the next 2 months before I go back to work. I will be sharing with you what I do, what I eat and how I feel about it in hopes that it will be of any help to you. cool?

I started in January with Moyer. I was 160lbs (at the peak of my pregnancy I reached 185lbs). I had no flexibility, weak joints, and exercising was painful. We started with just walking, I think I only walked that first month. I did however change the way I eat. I began to make better choices with my food. Moyer was instrumental at this point. he gave me great tips of what to eat, how much water to drink, he even gave me some recipes of his own sometimes. It was important for me to learn this so I can do it on my own if I have to. I want to prove to myself that if I have the right determination I can do anything.

Crap, boys are up from their naps! gotta go!

I’m looking fwd to sharing this journey with you…

    quit belly aching lady you ain’t an a list actress

    glad to see how honest she is in saying how hard it is to lose the after baby weight. for her even more difficult because she had twins!! as quiet as it is kept it is very, very, very, difficult to lose weight after having a baby AFTER you turn 24 years of age. been there done that and would not have known if I did not have a second baby.

    I know, most mothers in the entertainment industry want you to believe it is not that hard. liars. I suppose it is easier when you have personal trainers and chefs who can give you such great help in getting back to your desired weight sooner than later.

    Halle Berry having a second baby in her late forties after having the first one also in her forties faced a HUGE uphill battle in getting back to her desired weight. yes, it helped that she worked out and was in good physical shape BEFORE she became pregnant but she still faced the same challenge that any other woman face after having baby that late in life. she shows that she has great discipline. Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife had surgery after her five babies and her mid section is flat and beautiful even today. no matter what you do for a living you are still just a mere mortal.

    She looks better with more weight. Sad she doesn’t see how beautiful she is. Hollywood and fashonista brainwashing.

  • Zoee

    First of all she doesn’t look fat or on the pics i see of her, but for Hollywood that is very cruel with female body , yes she has some extra meat, and if she needs to get back to avatar outfit that has to look sooooo skinny.
    Ii was watching pics of her mother and one of her sister are very very fat so she has on her gene that tendency, I know it is hard for you to believe because we know her being sooo skinny , but haven’t you hear grandmother of women that are very very fat telling how skinny they used to be
