Now that The Bachelor Season 13’s Jason and Molly Mesnick have welcomed adorable baby daughter Riley Anne to the world, it’s hard to think about anything but adorable nurseries and couch snuggles.
But of course, Molly now has the challenge of all new moms: Losing her pregnancy weight! Luckily, it sounds like her journey won’t be as challenging as some.“I’ve always been a relatively small person,” she told Styled Right magazine shortly before giving birth “So adding an extra 20 pounds has started to wear on me.”
A new mom with only twenty pounds to lose!? Consider us impressed! As Molly explained, once made it through her first, morning sickness-filled trimester, her energy went through the roof. She channeled some of her boundless pregnancy pep into prenatal yoga, even though she says she’s never been a big fitness fanatic, and apparently it paid off.
Even though she certainly didn’t go overboard, Molly can’t wait to reclaim her pre-baby figure. “I feel like my body has been taken over, and I’m ready to have it back,” she said.
That being said, Molly makes it clear that she’s not feeling the heat from Hollywood to lose her pregnancy weight. “It’s not that I feel pressure to get back into shape,” she explained. “It’s that I WANT to get back into shape.”
And a big motivator for her, it sounds like, is fashion! “If anything, pregnancy has made me more anxious to get back to a normal size and try some new trends!” she explained. “I’m experiences some serious denim envy right now.”
Good for you, Molly! We’re impressed with your dedication, but don’t worry about it too much, OK? Riley is only a newborn once; you’ll have denim forever! For now, throw on some sweats and get back to couch-snugglin’.
