Pink Loses 55 Pounds
Pink covers the November issue of Shape Magazine, and on the cover she shows off her insane weight loss. I guess I didn’t realize she had much weight to lose, but I guess after giving birth to her daughter back in June 2011, the singer had 55 pounds to shed. She said she took her time losing it, but she finally did, and by the looks of this cover – it certainly paid off!
Pink‘s tough-as-nails attitude has softened a little bit up since giving birth to daughter Willow Sage in June 2011 — but her body has only gotten more rock solid. The 33-year-old, who is married to motocross racer Carey Hart, gained 55 pounds during her pregnancy, indulging on her favorite sweet treats.
“I hate a lot of cheesecake during those nine months,” she told Shape magazine. “Also, anything sour; Sour Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, key lime pie.”
But eight weeks after giving birth — she didn’t want to “rush” back into losing weight — she started training with celebrity trainers Jillian Michaels and Jeanette Jenkins.
“They both kicked my butt more than any other person I’ve worked out with,” she said. “The’re both amazing, and their bodies were all the inspiration I needed to get back into shape.”
Pink’s routine changed up every day, but always included a heavy dose of cardio and a lot of strength training. She did interval treadmill routines, power yoga, and kickboxing. She only sees Jeanette five days a week now, but says she’s gotten “great results.”
The proud mom also feeds herself and her family a mostly vegan diet, with green favorites such as arugula and asparagus, and healthy carbs including cous cous and brown rice. There’s no denying the singer is in amazing shape, but she insists being a mom is what makes her happiest.
“It’s just pure joy for Carey and me. Willow has made us more fun — we’re this cool little threesome,” she gushed.
Pink also confessed to her previous “wild child” ways – she started smoking at just nine-years-old and overdosed in a nightclub at the age of 15.
“I was 9 [when I started smoking]. By the time I turned 12 I was smoking a pack a day. I quit when I got pregnant. Unlike before [Willow was born], cigarettes smell repulsive to me.”
As for the drugs, she took as a teen: “I was into ecstasy, Special K, crystal meth, acid – you name it.”
I like how she says she only sees the trainer “five days a week now”. ONLY!? That’s insane.
Her body looks amazing!
