Trista Sutter, former star of The Bachelorette, is the first to admit that taking off the baby weight is really hard work. The 36-year-old mom-of-two gained roughly 43 pounds before giving birth to her second child in April. She is now down to 108 pounds and talking about her weight loss with Life & Style. “It was harder to lose weight this time around. I gained 10 more pounds this time” with Blakesley, 6 months, than with Max, now 2.
Trista went on to say it was hard, yet rewarding to find the time for herself: “I’m in mommy mode all day long, so to have an hour to myself four times a week to just sweat it out is a little relief for me. My routine is a mix of cardio and interval resistance training.” Trista also said her diet was different the second time around. “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.”
After six to eight weeks of hard work, Trista started to see results. “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,” Ryan Sutter, whom Trista met on The Bachelorette and married in 2003.
