Once again, a celebrity new mom plays the Skinnier Than Thou game – a game that really doesn’t have any winners.
Barely five weeks after giving birth to Camden Jack, her son with fiance Jay Cutler, a source reports that Kristin Cavallari is back to her pre-pregnancy figure again.
The insider tells Us Weekly that The Hills star “has already lost all the weight by working out like crazy with a trainer.”
Fitness has definitely been on Kristin’s mind lately; she tweeted recently, “Walking uphill on the treadmill to work out this booty. Bye bye baby weight.”
She’s also tweeted about being on a “cooking spree,” making such healthy dishes as lemon caper chicken, brussels sprout salad and wild mushroom and asparagus risotto, and resisting the call of sugar cookies.
So there you have it – another name on the list of Body After Baby Success Stories. Another mom who serves not so much to inspire us as to sigh, pull on the size-double-digit pants and try not to reach for a comforting doughnut.
Not that it’s a bad thing to exercise, eat right and get in shape. Not at all. But should this really be Priority One for a woman who’s still dealing with postpartum aches and early-morning diaper changes?
Even fellow celebs resent feeling pressured to peel off the extra pounds in record time. Hilary Duff, Alyson Hannigan and Jenna Fischer have all spoken out about the subject. And, of course, there’s Jessica Simpson, whose every ounce has been scrutinized over the last year, recently said, “My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just an ordinary woman who is just trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiance and myself.”
So now that Kristin is back to her enviably slim self, maybe she could do the rest of us a favor and eat that sugar cookie. Send the message that fitness is good, but thinness isn’t the most important thing in life. There are lots of good ways to spend one’s day and life.
Cuddling a newborn, for instance.
