Jessie James Decker Embraces Her 'Pooch' and Warns Against 'Severe' Post-Pregnancy Diets
By Dino-Ray Ramos
Jessie James Decker is feeling good her post-pregnancy bod.
The 27-year-old country singer, who recently welcomed her second child with husband Eric Decker, took to Instagram to share a photo of her post-baby body and express her confidence in exposing her "pooch."
"I appreciate all of the sweet comments about how tiny I look after baby! But I don't want to mislead any mommy's who just had babies and are stressing!" she wrote in a lengthy post. "I gained 55 pounds with my daughter and only 27 this time! I gained so much with her because I threw up every day for five months and of course was starving after so I would shove anything in my mouth to make that hunger feeling go away."
The photo, which finds Jessie lifting up her shirt, shows her progress in losing the baby weight. "This time I ate very normal and would take occasional walks," she adds. "I am still 15 pounds away from what I was originally before I got pregnant with Vivianne. I take occasional walks but haven't done anything yet to try and lose weight and am in no rush! Nursing mamas should def not try and do any severe diets or milk supply will run low! My tummy is still swollen and you can see my c-section scar and pooch! I had another due to my 9lb baby and petite frame."
Jessie remains positive about her body and isn’t in a hurry to shed the pounds. She wants to do it the healthiest way possible. "So no rushing and no stressing about losing weight!" she continues. "Wanted to make sure y'all saw what my tummy looks like under the tank top and blazer...I do wear a belly waist train thingy a few hours here n there which helps c section mamas and swelling to go down. I am so glad we all can support each other."
Jessie seems to be twice as excited now that she is a mother of two. She is also very excited of bonding with her fans about motherhood. "Being a mommy is so rewarding but hard work so we need to stick together and help each other out," she gushes. "I'm not perfect but I do my best. That's what it's all about. So never be hard on yourself. I'm going to try and do more posts like this. So feel free to ask anything below and will try and incorporate it in another mommy post!"
Jessie has always taken the time out to connect with her fans. Relive the time when she helped one of them find the perfect wedding dress on Say Yes to the Dress in the video below.
