Amy Adams OK With Baby Weight

Did You Rush to Lose the Baby Weight? Amy Adams Didn't!

With the exception of a baked good, a muffin top is not something most women are usually OK with — unless you're Amy Adams. The Muppets star recently told InStyle that the last few pounds of baby weight have been hard to drop. But she's in no rush (Amy gave birth to her daughter in May 2010): "I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I'm like, 'What? Where did you push your baby out of?' Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that's OK right now."

Amy's comments are definitely spot on; given that Hollywood puts an emphasis on beauty, there can be a lot of pressure to maintain a tight and toned bod — even after delivering a child. And regardless of whether you're an actress or not, extra weight gained from pregnancy may be enough to spur any woman into a ramped-up fitness regimen. This isn't the case for everyone, though, as Amy illustrates. For the moms out there, how did you deal with losing the baby weight?

I didn't rush. She was born in August, I was in shape for swim suit season by walking, hiking and eating healthy, which I think is very realistic.

Wait - that's a photo of Amy Adams with a muffin top?! She's a size 0. Good grief.

To get serious about losing the last 10 pounds of my baby weight, I started running with my daughter when she was six months old. But before that, I was too enamored with her to care what I looked like, and stuck to walking and yoga classes mostly.

Granted I was much younger, but between walking everywhere with my baby and nursing, I lost all my baby weight and then some by the time she was 9 months old.
