Kendra Wilkinson on Her Post-Baby Body: "My Curves Shocked Me"

After giving birth to son Hank Baskett IV last December, reality star Kendra Wilkinson went from a toned and taut size two up a few sizes into uncharted territory. “My curves shocked me big-time,” admits the E! star. “It was a whole other woman I was looking at in the mirror.” While Kendra is enjoying her new “different” body, she’s looking forward to getting that tone back. “About two months ago, I stopped making excuses. It’s time to get out there and really bust my ass like I used to,” she says of her now hour-long workouts at the gym and new healthier eating habits, which include salads, grilled chicken and chewing gum to curb cravings. “I was so used to being fit and skinny,” she says. “I never had to lose weight until now. I want my muscle back–I don’t want anything jiggling. Cardio for me is number one. I need the cardio because I can tone my body, but I gotta burn the fat off!” One step in the right direction? “We didn’t have my stripper pole in my house ever since I gave birth, now we’re going hang it up. I feel sexy again.” –Jennifer Garcia

Finally People posts a wonderful article about post pregnancy bodies! She looks wonderful! I am a mother of 4 kids 5 years old and younger, finally I have lost all my baby weight, proud to say I’m 119 pounds, I’ve worked extremely hard to get there and I wear my saggy stomach skin and stretch marks with PRIDE! Wouldn’t change a thing. GO KENDRA, YOU SHOW OFF THAT BODY!

Kelly, I think you need a shrink. Why can’t women support each other and embrace their bodies? Pregnancy changes your body and it may or may not ever be the same. She looks gorgeous in this photo and I am sure she is healthy and happy. That’s all that matters!

So dating a 80 yr with 2 other Girlfriends and doing x-rated tape can get you coverage on….Young girls of America…you learning…

Kelly…you’re a dolt. I’m almost positive that any man wouldn’t give a rip about curves. They’d probably much rather take curves over a broom-stick & a pencil neck.

HOW many more times are we going to hear this? You’re a no-name, untalented spore flying around in the winds of life – who cares? I think you worry more about taking care of your baby than obsessing about your body. Guess what? Women who have babies, no matter what size they are pre-pregnancy, have to gain a certain amount of weight for the nutritional health of the fetus, and, unless you starve yourself, or use some illegal, unethical, or heart-damaging method of losing the weight, it will take awhile. And, sorry,most women most likely will never be the size 2, or whatever it was that you were before, but you can get your body back into a healthy shape with good eating and exercise. So, shut up about it already, and dwell on the things in life that actually MEAN something!
