Padma Lakshmi Says She Took Her Time to Drop the Baby Weight

A Healthy Bite: Padma Lakshmi

"The minute I wasn't bedridden . . . I got to work . . . I was 25 pounds heavier than people are used to seeing me. There was nothing I could do about it, so I just accepted it. I just thought, I had a baby, that's way more important. Women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes and I wanted to show women that you can dress well, that you can still feel sexy, that you can still feel confident, and it was OK if my boobs were big because I was feeding another human being."

Padma Lakshmi on the pressure to lose weight after giving birth three months ago. Padma told Us Weekly that she returned to hosting duties on Top Chef just six weeks after welcoming daughter Krishna into the world. The hostess says she has slowly returned to her fitness routine of boxing and running on the treadmill and has only another 15 pounds to lose.
