Thinking of losing the pregnancy weight for just one time, often gives women a lot of stress. Yet some women do it over and over again in order to stay fit and look great. One such extraordinary woman is the Punky Brewster (1984-1988) star, Soleil-Moon-Frye who gave birth to her fourth child, Story in May 2016. Here we try to find out how she lost the pregnancy weight for the 4th time around and why she doesn’t consider weight loss a priority. We also let you know her weight loss motivation and her pregnancy diet so that you can take pointers.
Weight Loss Secret
EOnline reports that the diva opted to try the popular weight loss program Nutrisystem. This program had worked for her in the past, so she stuck to it. She says that she is blessed with four beautiful kids and wants to take care of herself so that she can be an active part of their lives.
Not a Priority
The stunner says that losing weight post pregnancy was not a priority for her and it has never been so in the past as well. She lost weight a healthy way after each pregnancy because she needs to lead by example. She will never starve herself in front of her kids. As a family, they all eat together and play together.
Take Your Time
The pretty woman also says that women should never feel that they are forced to do something. They should never be forced to get back in shape immediately after a pregnancy. She spent all the time she needed with Story before thinking about getting her body back. She thinks that pregnancy weight loss is different for everyone. You should find something that works for you (like Nutrisystem worked for her) and stick to it.
Weight Loss Motivation
The talented actress says that her four kids, Story, Poet, Jagger and Lyric are her main motivation to keep healthy and lose the unwanted weight. She wants to keep up with the kids and their wild antics. She can’t help but highlight the fact that her kids have amazing little personalities.
Advice For Moms
Frye wishes that other moms know the fact that though it’s important to spend some time with your kids, it’s equally important to enjoy some alone time as a woman. It is very important for women to be empowered. Women often put everything they are into loving and supporting the kids. It often goes to the extent that they don’t spend time for themselves. She wants to inspire mothers to make some time for themselves. During this alone time, women should take steps towards living a healthier and happier life.
