Beyoncé Knowles showed skin in a sporty two-piece for the cover of Shape's April issue. She flaunted her fit figure inside the publication as well and talked about working hard to lose the weight she gained while she was pregnant with Blue Ivy. Beyoncé had added incentive since she performed just three months after giving birth, and she'll take the stage again this Summer when her Mrs. Carter Show tour kicks off in July. Here's more from Beyoncé in Shape:
On losing pregnancy weight: "I gained 57 pounds when I was pregnant. I didn't have a lot of time to lose the weight, because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again. I'm not a person that is naturally very thin. I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape."
On her advice for other moms: "Not everyone is supposed to be the same. Be healthy and take care of yourself, but be happy with the beautiful things that make you, you."
