Blake Lively, actor, mom, and wife to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds, gave birth to her second child in 2016. On Monday, the 30-year-old shared an Instagram of herself looking super fit, standing next to a personal trainer.
The caption reads,
Turns out you can’t lose the 61 lbs you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through instragram and wondering why you don’t look like all the bikini models. Thanks @donsaladino for kickin my A double S into shape. 10 months to gain, 14 months to lose. Feeling very proud.
Nope, looking at those Instagram pics of bikini models certainly won't help you lose weight, but working out can. You know what else helps? A personal trainer, which clearly Lively has. And we don't begrudge her that!
A lot of women found Lively's weight loss inspiring.
Others appreciated that she was honest about her weight and about how long it took to come off. And that Lively didn't rush it, she did it in a slow, healthy way, keeping her goals realistic.
Overall, the comments on Lively's post were very positive.
Except for the part about not being able to lose weight by scrolling through Instagram. Come on, tapping those little hearts has got to burn at least some calories!
