There is no denying the fact that pregnancy can add unwanted pounds to one's figure. If you are not fond of exercise, it will be difficult to remove the accumulated fat in the long run.
However, if you are a celebrity, you have the means to get a liposuction or any other slimming procedure. Despite having enough money for such things, there are celebrities who still want to lose their post-pregnancy weight traditionally.
Here are four celebrity moms who rocked a fitter body this year after having children, using both old-school and advanced methods.
1. Regine Velasquez
It has been five years since Asia's Songbird gave birth to Nathaniel James Velasquez Alcasid, more commonly known as Nate. Her weight has fluctuated since her pregnancy but her recent posts on Instagram proved that she is on her way to bring back more curves to her body.
Her husband, singer/songwriter Ogie Alcasid, joins her in this journey with the hashtag #oplanbalikalindog2016 as both have an in-house trainer that they can spar with.
Alcasid noted that his wife has already lost 20 pounds, but it is unsure if she had a little help from celebrity esthetician Vicki Belo. Still, Mama looks great!
2. Aiko Melendez
When they say life begins at 40, you know that it is partly true. The 'Barcelona: A Love Untold' actress' birthday wish last year was to make herself look better, which she did by getting slimmer. She has reportedly lost around 50 pounds and aims to lose more.
She used both traditional and advanced methods of losing weight, but more on the former - she has been consistently working out at the gym and strictly eating healthier meals.
However, if she does not have the time to break a sweat, she uses Slimline Pod, a machine that reduces inches and water retention for just half an hour.
However, there were rumors that she had been taking Garcinia Cambogia pills in conjunction with her diet and exercise, which she refuted in her Instagram account.
3. Sunshine Dizon
The 'Encantadia' actress currently epitomizes the statement 'Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned' due to her ongoing battle with her estranged husband Timothy Tan. Despite the recent happenings in her life, she has made it a priority to make herself look and feel good - thanks to the laser liposuction she had courtesy of Dr. Vicki Belo.
She has also been spotted working up a sweat to maintain her new slimmer figure, which had her 37-inch waistline go down to a 27.
Like what they always say, the best revenge is to improve yourself. Or in Sunshine's words: 'Don't get mad. Get beautiful.'
4. Sharon Cuneta
One of the biggest celebrity weight loss stories for this year is none other than the Megastar herself.
Since returning to her previous network for 'The Voice Kids', Sharon has revealed a slimmer figure compared to what we saw of her during the past few years.
She has lost 50 pounds as the show progressed and promised to lose more as she is also set for a movie comeback this year.
Sharon is also known for being one of Marie France's endorsers, but that is not to say that she availed of their services alone for her weight loss. For all we know, she has worked hard to regain her slim figure.
Have their transformations inspired you to be healthier before this year ends? We know we are, and we hope that you will be too!
