Mariah Carey is excited about her post-baby weight loss, and wants the world to know it! She appears on the cover of the May 2012 issue of Shape, showing off her figure in a bikini bottom and baby tee.
With her twins Moroccan and Monroe nearing their first birthday on April 30, Carey told the fitness magazine about the challenges she faced trying to lose weight after delivering them.
“I put on 70 lbs, but if you look at me in pictures you’d think it was more like 9,000 lbs…I used to be able to slim down just by exercising more, but that’s changed. Since having the babies, I realise that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet…. [the rest is]more about getting and staying toned.”
