Trista Sutter is very proud to have lost the nearly 43 pounds that she put on while pregnant with her second child! Trista was anxious to get back to her normal weight of 110 pounds after welcoming daughter, Blakesley, in April. Currently, she’s rebounded to a tiny 108 pounds!
In an interview given exclusively to PopEater by Life & Style magazine, Trista says slimming down after her second child was way harder than the first, and that she’s back to feeling “confident – well, at least sort of confident – in a bikini.”
“It was harder to lose weight this time around … I gained 10 more pounds this time,” Trista told Life & Style. By “this time,” she means during her pregnancy with her second daughter, 6-month-old Blakesley, as opposed to 2-year-old Max.
Trista said it was tough getting back to exercising due to her Caesarian section surgery with Blakesley. “For obvious reasons, my abs were the one area that didn’t jump right back into position after I had Blakesley, so I’m still really focused on working on them and getting more toned,” Trista shared.
Trista also revealed that her eating habits have changed dramatically.
“I had gestational diabetes with Max, so I really had to watch what I ate at the end of that pregnancy. With Blakesley, I didn’t have diabetes, so I went all out – I ate everything.”
Trista said when it comes to her diet, she’s all about moderation.
“I really believe that you shouldn’t deprive yourself – just getting a taste of something sweet keeps away that urge to binge.”
Even though she admits she hasn’t “really struggled with my weight all my life,” Trista told Life & Style that it was “definitely a struggle” dropping the weight the second time around.
“I’m definitely my own worst critic … I’m very critical of how I look and feel, mainly because I want to feel sexy for my husband,” Trista said, referring to her ‘Bachelorette’ husband Ryan Sutter
“I feel confident – well, at least sort of confident – in a bikini… And I’m proud that I’ve gotten to the point where I can fit into my old clothes!” Trista declared.
Congratulations to Trista…she looks amazing!
