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

I think she looks great. You look good Kendra. Don’t pay any attention to the ones only trying to bring you down. You keep up the good work.

Kendra looks great for having a baby and a c-section just barely six months ago. Why people like to bash others I can not understand. Each person is different and loses/gains weight differently.

She gained a lot of weight for her size, it is no picnic getting it off. She is also breastfeeding and while some are lucky enough to see drastic weight loss while bf’ing, many still hang on to an extra 5-20 lbs until they wean, myself included.

I started working out like mad once my kids turned 1 yr (bc they were finally sleeping through the night and I could get the rest I needed) and eating a clean diet, but the scale would not budge until my kids were weaned.

I like Kendra because she is not afraid to put it all out there unlike most celebrities. I just wish she wasn’t so hard on herself. She needs to focus more on her son and quit obsessing about the weight because he will only be little for a short while and that extra weight will eventually be gone if she keeps up good eating habits and workouts.

All she ever does is make comments about her body? What’s up with that?

Kelly and Len, I hope you never have daughters. You’d do a number on their self-image.

Rude. Rude. Rude.

I think she looks great. Different, but great.
