You would never think that Mariah Carey popped out twins – Moroccan and Monroe – only six months ago with husband Nick Cannon.
The singer lost 70 pounds!
Mariah joined Jenny Craig to help her with her diet. She said:
"In the beginning, when I first had the babies, I had so much edema, water and swelling. Most pregnant women have that just in their feet.
"One day I was doing my thank-yous and I noticed it started rising up the leg, so I had edema. I didn’t think I would ever be the same person.
"The first week, I lost 40 lbs of just water. It was just water, initially. When I started with the program, I lost at least 30 lbs of weight that needs to be lost."
Recently making an appearance on The Rosie Show, she explained:
"I had a really tough pregnancy. I was supposed to be on bed rest, but it was so bad then even bed hurt. I learned a lot being pregnant, watching my body change."
And now she’s loving watching her body change back. She added:
"The whole point of this is not just like, ‘Oh hey, look at me and my weight loss, I’m fantastic.’ It’s really healthy. Like I said, I learned it when I became helpless and felt so vulnerable like never before in my life."
