At the Elle event the model and jewelry designer talked to US Weekly about her postpartum weight loss.
“I’m still about ten pounds away and my baby is seven months. And I look at Claire Danes at the Globes and I’m like, I hate you.”
She continued, “I’m jealous [of women like Danes]. I wish to God I could have done it that way. But my body just didn’t. And I’m so happy I have an amazing, happy, healthy, gorgeous, Buddha-like son, but I…wish it would have been easier. I tell my husband, it made me depressed a little.”
Sims gained almost 65 pounds during her pregnancy because of a thyroid condition stating, “My thyroid kind of shut down, so that really made it very difficult in terms of the weight loss.”
To keep healthy she’s been eating “really lean protein, no salt, no oils—I mean, hard core. The problem is…you can’t [cut back your diet] until you stop breastfeeding, and I stopped at three months because I had no milk.”
The 39-year-old also works out with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson and practices Bikram yoga. She added, “[Some] women will say, ‘Oh my god, it’s so easy, and I eat M&Ms and I breastfeed all day long,’ and that’s just not true.”View Slideshow »»
