Turns out you can’t lose the 61 lbs you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through Instragram and wondering why you don’t look like all the bikini models. Thanks @donsaladino for kickin my A double S into shape. 10 months to gain, 14 months to lose. Feeling very proud.
Lots of people praised the actor’s dedication.

Thank you for your inspiration and that it takes some time to lose weight, I’m almost 4 months postpartum and definitely has been a struggle with the weight loss this time around! I gained 50lbs with my 2nd and it’s been a struggle

Right there with you girl! 26 lbs down 6 months postpartum and 25 more to go!
Mina_411 was relieved to find that Lively lost the weight over a year – rather than engaging in quick-fix diets celebrities are stereotypically known for.
Phew... It's reassuring it took you 14 months as I was beginning to feel bad about my baby pouch and I'm just over 3 months postpartum! *grabs another biscuit* I'll start working out 'properly' next month... P.s. You look amazing 😍
Others pointed out that not all women had the means or the time to work with a personal trainer.
Yeah but you can when you have a personal trainer and nothing else to do.
Though most were happy to see a celebrity lose weight in a healthy way.
Healthy way of losing weight after pregnancy unlike other celebs. I wish I could train but with three small kids and no nannies or family around is impossible😜 But I get that u are celebrity that's ur job so u have to look like that if u want to get roles. Too bad hollywood is not gonna change any time soon and the women always will be criticised for the way they look.
