Carrie Underwood Gets Real About Her Post-Baby Body After Giving Birth to Baby Jacob

Carrie Underwood is getting real about “bouncing back” after giving birth to her baby boy Jacob, who she welcomed with hubby Mike Fisher back in late January.

“I’m going to be honest, ‘bouncing back’ after having Jacob has been much more difficult than after I had Isaiah and I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately. I go into the gym and I can’t run as fast or as far. I can’t lift as much weight or do as many reps as I could a year ago. I just want to feel like myself again…for my body to feel the way that I know it can. As I was working out today, I realized that for the past 11(ish) months, my body has not belonged to me. It was a perfect home for Jacob. And even now it belongs to him every time he drinks his milk,” Carrie wrote on her Instagram, along with a selfie.

She continued, “As I prepare for red carpets and for life on tour, right now I make a promise to myself to start appreciating what my body CAN do and stop focusing on what it can’t. I promise to stop analyzing every angle and every curve and every pound and every meal. I’m going to keep staying the path because it is a journey and as long as I’m always working towards my goals, one day I’ll reach them. I’m going to take it day by day, smile at the girl in the mirror, and work out because I love this body and all it has done and will continue to do! #bodyafterbaby #fitmom #healthy #staythepath @caliabycarrie.”

    shut up. all these stupid celebrity mom constantly bitch and moan about their post baby bodies when in reality they starve themselves and exercise to death so two weeks later they can fit into their size 0 jeans and tell the world how great they are.

    It’s a shame that we hyper focus on our appearance, trying to look how the media portrays beauty. Social media is a huge part of the monster too. It’s beyond vanity when it becomes an obsession.

    The good thing is a lot of women are starting to post pics of their stomach. Underneath that tight spandex is tons of skin and stretch marks just like everyone else. It’s made me feel less stressed about myself.

    this is the same woman who hid in her house for 6+ months to hide her less than perfect face. terribly vain, as this post now proves. she’s obsessed with her appearance. too bad. she seems otherwise like a decent person.
