Kailyn Lowry Opens Up About Pregnancy Weight Gain: “I Felt Fat”
Teen Mom 2's Kailyn Lowry has always struggled with her weight, but she's been making a concerted effort to stand by her belief that "beauty is sizeless" and love her body no matter how much she weighs. Of course, that's easier said than done — especially when you're coming off a pregnancy!
Kailyn gave birth to her second son, Lincoln Marshall Marroquin, back in November, and she's been on a mission to drop her unwanted baby weight ever since. This girl is eating healthy foods and hitting the gym whenever she gets a break from mommy duty, which makes total sense –– apparently she didn't feel great about her body during her pregnancy! When a fan tweeted Kailyn and mentioned how great she looked during Teen Mom 2's season premiere, Kailyn's response was simple: "I felt fat."
Awww, Kailyn! While it's too bad that this girl wasn't feeling her best, we beg to differ with her opinion. Sure, Kailyn gained weight during her pregnancy (just like everyone does!), but she was hardly what we'd call fat. And thanks to all the calories burned while breastfeeding, plus a healthy diet and exercise, girlfriend should be back to her old self in no time!
Luckily, Kailyn has learned to accept her body the way it is, so hopefully her extra pounds aren't getting her down.
"When I was in middle school, I had a really hard time being called the 'chunky girl,'" Kailyn told Wetpaint Entertainment during an exclusive interview back in 2012. "I would go on bouts where I wouldn't eat or try to make myself throw up. At this point, I am so comfortable with where I am right now."
Sigh, this girl is so wise. We hate to hear her call herself fat when she's anything but!
