Katherine Heigl Shares her Post-Pregnancy Weight Loss Plan

Grey’s Anatomy alum Katherine Heigl is a veteran adopted new mom to a first born 7-month old and now she is blogging and sharing her journey to shed the 50 pounds she gained while pregnant.

“My best weight loss advice is to start every morning by saying out loud a positive mantra of your choice about your body. Mine is ‘I am easily, with good health, inspiration, grace and gratitude losing weight faster than I can even imagine with harm to none,’ ” the Doubt star said in her PEOPLE magazine blog.

“Then I say my gratefuls. Thanking my body for it’s perfect health, strength, limberness, vibrancy, youthfulness and beauty. Whether I always believe these things about myself and my body or not, I say them. By saying them out loud with love and gratitude I have found that I not only start to believe them, but my body exhibits what I say and believe.”

Beside her new baby Joshua Bishop with hubby Josh Kelly, the Knocked Up star has two daughters through adoption, but giving birth to son ntroduced her to the world of pregnancy — and its crazy changes to her body.

Heigl admitted that the 50-lb. weight gain left her with “moments of sheer panic.”

The baby weight dropped after delivery helped but not that much

“I had hoped to only gain 25-30 pounds like my mother during her pregnancies but found that just wasn’t possible for me,” she wrote. “Despite starting my gestation out on a pregnancy friendly meal plan and hiking my butt off 5 days a week my weight kept creeping up.”

Heigl continued, “At a certain point, probably around 4 months I gave up the struggle and tried instead to respect my body’s needs and trust my instincts.”

She said she is learning  to love her body as is.

And she won’t let it discourage her from growing her family through adoption or trying to get pregnant.

Congratulations to Doubt star Katherine Heigl and her musician husband Josh Kelley on the birth of their first son, Joshua Bishop Kelley, Jr.  on December 20, PEOPLE confirms. The baby was born three days before the couple celebrated their wedding anniversary on December 23rd.

Heigl and Kelley are parents to daughters, 8-year old Naleigh and 4-year old Adalaide, who the couple adopted.

Last June 2016, Heigl announced the news on her Instagram , noting that they were just about to adopt or foster another child if pregnancy was not an option.

“It was totally unexpected but thrilling nonetheless,” she noted on a photo of her sonogram.

“Seeing as I have never been pregnant and as my OB/GYN reminded me last year, I’m of advanced maternal age,” Heigl shared, “I wasn’t sure pregnancy was even in the cards for us.

Because of the Holidays, we totally missed covering her baby shower but lucky for us, the photos are still up on her Instagram and her blog Those Heavenly Days. And you can see more on Daily Mail.

The Grey’s Anatomy alum shared that her mother let her plan her winter wonderland themed wedding. She pulled ideas from Pinterest and made sure the event was decorated with winter white bouquets with some single stem arrangements in a milk glass on the dinner tables. I “am an avid milk glass collector” the Knocked Up actress penned on her blog.

“I wanted the table settings to feel rustic and elegant like our ranch up in Utah so we included natural elements like rattan place mats, naturally shed deer antlers, pine cones and white gourds,” she wrote, adding, “I truly wish I could have these centerpieces on my dining table all year long!”

The dinner was farm to table style and the even included an open bar with holiday-inspired cocktails. Guest went home with Christmas sugar cookies with a baby theme decorations on them as parting gifts/favors.

The cake (featured above from her Instagram) was a simple white fondant cake with a rocking horse ornament on top.

Sounds like it was a delightful event.
