Lucy Mecklenburgh has showed off her “postpartum” body in a bikini as she told fans how she lost her pregnancy weight.
The star, who recently said she gained four stone while pregnant with son Roman, admitted she’s still “not sticking to regular exercise” and eating a perfect healthy balanced diet but “so what”.
Lucy, 29, advised “new mamas” that “every journey is unique like every body and baby is unique”.
What did Lucy Mecklenburgh say?
The new mum said: “I put this on my story the other day and I’ve had soooo many DM’s asking what pregnancy diet I’ve been on, what extreme exercise plan I’ve followed.
“Basically what’s the magic pill that helped me lose the 4 stone pregnancy weight.
“Sorry to tell you but there’s no magic pill, no fad diet and no quick fix.”
She continued: “I’ve been a little quiet about my postpartum journey in general, pregnancy weight gain, postnatal exercise regime, my new body shape & postpartum weight loss..
“Roman’s 6 months old and to be honest I had this image in my head of being back to regular exercise and healthy eating in 6 weeks after my all clear from the doctor.
Sorry to tell you but there’s no magic pill, no fad diet and no quick fix.
“Let’s just say it wasn’t quite like that.
“Biscuits & coffee for breakfast, lunch & dinner some days! If I got 1 hour to myself I would nap not do burpees haha.”
Lucy Mecklenburgh on what Ryan Thomas did to help her
The star said her fiancé Ryan Thomas “made sure I ate at least one balanced meal a day piled high with veggies”.
She said he “always made me pints of water or cordial while I was breast feeding”.
Lucy admitted she “tried to fight it and attempted exercise” but she had “no energy” and “wasn’t ready to workout yet”.
Instead, Lucy “decided to 100% focus on looking after Roman”.
The star explained she began doing stretches and “short workouts” around two or three times a week at three months postpartum.
She also did “daily walks with the pram” during lockdown to “keep her sane”.
She added: “My advice to new mamas is every journey is unique like every body & baby is unique.
“Don’t put any pressure on yourself!!
“6 months in I’m still not sticking to regular exercise and eating a perfect healthy balanced diet but so what!!
“I have a whole new respect and appreciation for my body. Love to all you beautiful mamas! We are all superheroes.”
