Mariah Carey: 'Pregnancy Was The Best And Hardest Thing I'll Ever Go Through'
Less than a year after giving birth to twins, Mariah Carey appeared on the May issue of Shape wearing a tummy-bearing white and purple horizontal striped halter top and and white bottoms.
Pretty risqué for a lady who put on 70 pounds of "water weight" during her pregnancy, right?
So how did the singer shed the weight and get back into fighting bikini shape? Jenny Craig.
"I used to be able to slim down just by exercising more, but that’s changed," she tells the magazine. "Since having the babies, I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet."
Mariah is a Jenny Craig spokesperson and hopes other women looking to slim down will hop on the bandwagon and sign up for the structured eating plan.
"Pregnancy was probably the best and the hardest thing I’ll ever go through,” she said. “I know for a lot of women, it can be wonderful and relatively easy. But for me, it was like, ‘Okay, honey, do you have to do everything the hard way?’”
Hubby Nick Cannon, however, couldn't be more proud of his wife. He told reporters:
"She is incredible. To see the pain and struggle that she has to go through being a mother of twins, it really took a toll on her body and not only to be in shape, but to perform, to do an album and then be my nurse! She’s literally superwoman."
