Mariah Careyreveals that getting back into shape after giving birth to twins has meant more than going to the gym. This is something every new Mom would like to know. She has admitted that it wasn't an easy feat to get her figure back, particularly after gaining so much weight during her pregnancy.
"I remember thinking at the time: "I'll never look or feel the same again'," she said. But Mariah was wrong and she now looks and feels better than ever. To prove it, the pop diva posed for the cover of the May issue of Shape magazine, flaunting her incredible abs in just a blue and white striped crop top and white knickers.
"I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet," Carey, 43, who promotes the Jenny Craig plan, says in the May issue of Shapemagazine. "Today my workout routine is more about getting and staying toned," she says. "And for me, that means either taking hour-long walks a few times a week or jumping in the pool three or four days a week to do 45 minutes of aquatic exercises."
The star, who is married to Nick Cannon, admitted to the magazine that being pregnant with Monroe and Moroccan was a tricky time for her. "Pregnancy was probably the best and the hardest thing I'll ever go through."I know for a lot of women, it can be wonderful and relatively easy. But for me, it was like "Okay, honey, do you have to do everything the hard way?"" she added.
