Mariah Carey Covers Shape Magazine, Talks Pregnancy Weight Loss
Mariah, who looks incredible by the way, not only shared her stunning cover but also the highlights of her interview.
Check out what the singer had to say about losing the pregnancy weight and upcoming music.
On pregnancy weight gain:
“I put around 70 pounds, but if you look at photos of me when I was pregnant, you’d say “Wow, she gained 9,000 pounds!” A lot of it was water weight because I pretty much had head-to-toe edema which is very painful. Luckily, all the swelling went away fairly quickly after the babies were born. The I had about 30 more pounds to drop. I have such empathy for people who need to lose a lot of weight, because I know what they’re going through. I remember thinking at the time “I’ll never look or feel the same again”.”
On picking Jenny Craig to help shed the baby weight:
“I’ve been on other diets before – my weight has fluctuated 15 to 20 pounds over years. But I liked the structure of Jenny Craig and that I can prepare my own food along with eating the company’s meals and snacks.”
On new music:
“I’ve started writing songs for a new album, which I hope will come out in 2012. Getting back in the studio and making music again-which I truly love doing-is the best way to end this crazy year.”
