Ciara Princess Wilson has recently opened up about her successful weight loss journey and getting back to her pre-baby weight.
The 35-year-old singer told PEOPLE she is “super proud of every milestone” she has met, recognizing that her body has been different after giving birth to three children.
She said, “Physically, your body does change. The older we get, the more our body changes. The more babies we have as women, the more our bodies change.”
“But my desire to achieve my fitness and wellness goals, I feel like it’s leveled up, to be honest,” Ciara added. “I feel even more empowered and motivated to achieve those goals because there’s really no better feeling for me personally than being able to get to that space.”
Teaming up with WW (formerly Weight Watchers) last September, the model set a goal to lose weight and get back to her pre-baby weight.
Last week, she shared that she lost 28 lbs. five months after welcoming her second child with her husband Russell Wilson. They are also parents to daughter Sienna Princess, 3, and Future Zahir, 6, whom Ciara shares with her ex-fiancé, rapper Future.
She said, “What’s been really helpful with the program is that you get to enjoy yourself. It’s not an extreme diet plan. It’s not like you can’t eat the fun foods that I believe bring us happiness or brings us joy. Like for me personally, being from Atlanta and being a southern girl, I’ve always loved good food, good flavors and good seasoned food.”
With the help of the WW app and the Digital 360 program, Ciara is ready to shed another 20 lbs.
“That’s just kind of what I had my mind set on and that’s kind of always my goal, post every baby,” she noted. “Especially now, with having three little ones, there’s just a good feeling for me about being able to get back to where I was.”
Knowing that her body has transformed throughout the motherhood, Ciara said, “Carrying [Win] — and any baby — can be very taxing on the body. I think there’s just something empowering about being able to get back to that set place.”
She added. “The beauty marks that come with a baby – having the stretch marks and all that stuff — those things may not ever go away, but just still being able to get back to that place [remains.]” The article originally appeared on PEOPLE.
