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.



Expecting Katherine Heigl Glows at a Beverly Hills Event promoting Her New Show

Glowing! That is the word that can best describe actress Katherine Heigl who looked stunning in white while attending the The Critics’ Association’s 2016 Summer Party Tour to promote her upcoming CBS legal drama Doubt

Wednesday’s event at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California was the first time the expecting mom debuted her baby bump since announcing that she was expecting her third child, after adopting her first two girls.

During a panel session at the event, the Grey’s Anatomy alum shared that her husband of 8-years Josh Kelly is excited that they will welcome a baby boy this January.


The couple’s daughters include now 7-year old Naleigh Mi-Eun and 4-year old Adalaid Marie Hope. 

“He’s just surrounded by women. It’s me, the two girls, my niece Madison lives with us in Utah and she’s a 14-year-old girl, and then my mom,” Heigl revealed.

And if we can focus on the outfit a bit, the dress matched perfectly with her clutch and nude stilettos.

I’m also so glad to see her shine again after getting blacklisted for speaking out on behalf of women who thought her first big screen hit Knocked Up was a bit stereotypical of pregnant women. (that’s another post for another day)
