Katherine Heigl Opens Up About Gaining 50 Pounds During Pregnancy

Katherine Heigl just revealed she gained 50 pounds during pregnancy and is sharing how she’s shedding the weight.

The 38-year-old actress took to her blog to open up about the crazy changes to her body before and after giving birth to her son Joshua eight months ago.

“I gained almost 50 pounds during my pregnancy and I’m not gonna lie, I had moments of sheer panic that I’d never be able to lose it all,” she wrote.

Katherine added, “Despite starting my gestation out on a pregnancy friendly meal plan and hiking my butt off 5 days a week my weight kept creeping up. At a certain point, probably around 4 months I gave up the struggle and tried instead to respect my body’s needs and trust my instincts.”

After giving birth to Joshua, she explained that she “miraculously” lost 30 pounds just 10 days after giving birth, which doctors told her was normal.

She continued, “The rest of the weight however has not disappeared quite so magically…I have only lost 10 pounds since that first initial drop but that’s ok because I decided from the start that I was going to lovingly but patiently reclaim my pre baby body, and forgive the glorious imperfections that would forever grace my new post baby body.”

Katherine went on to explain her exercise and diet regime and offer some helpful tips to new moms, which you can find on her blog.
