Mariah Carey Sheds 70lbs Post Pregnancy

Mariah Carey, 42, lost 70lbs since her pregnancy!!! The Grammy Award winning artist gave birth to twins Moroccan and Monroe six months ago. And it didn’t take long for the diva to return to her skintight wardrobe after a self proclaim, ‘tough pregnancy’.

Carey stopped by The Rosie Show on OWN in all back everything. A skintight mini skirt showing off her toned legs and a motorcycle jacket accentuated her overall slim framed – she looked gorgeous!!

Mariah detailed her weight loss journey to Rosie. Her first 40lbs came from water weight:

“In the beginning, when I first had the babies, I had so much edema … water and swelling. Most pregnant woman have that just in their feet,” Carey says. “One day I was doing my thank-you notes and I noticed it started rising up the leg, so I had edema. … I didn’t think I would ever be the same person.”

The other 30lbs came off courtesy of Jenny Craig.

The first week, I lost 40 lbs. … of just water,” Carey says. “It was just water, initially. When I started with the program, I lost at least 30 lbs. of weight that needed to be lost.”

But Carey insists the weight loss isn’t all about appearance,

“The whole point of this is not just like: ‘Oh, hey, look at me and my weight loss, I’m fantastic.’ It’s really health. Like I said, I learned it when I became helpless and felt so vulnerable like never before in my life.”

Nick Cannon was also a great source of inspiration for Mariah Carey.
