Erica Mena appears to be getting her pre-pregnancy body back by putting in the work at the gym. The former “Love and Hip Hop: New York” reality star documented her workouts on social media and showed the struggles that come with losing weight after giving birth to a happy and healthy baby.
Mena shared a photo on her Instagram page of her working out at home. Her workout ensemble consisted of a two-piece matching set and a black baseball cap. The model wrapped her hair in a ponytail and wore a red exercise band around her thighs.
Social media users noticed Mena’s “baby weight” showing in her midsection, and they praised the model for being transparent about her post-pregnancy workout journey.
“Thanks for sharing your journey— unfiltered At that ❤️,” one user said.
A second fan commented, “We needed this! People think you have a baby and jump back into the old you. It doesn’t work that way for all of us. You’re working hard and it shows. Definitely motivation for me 😩❤️.”
“You got it babe,keep going❤️,” a third user encouraged.
A fourth fan wrote, “Look how you’ve taken your time to get back to normal after having your beautiful baby and sharing your real journey with us ❤️.”
“Thank you for showing us what a real woman looks like after having a baby. Amazing lady ❤️, a fifth gushed.
“Full respect for showing it’s not instant,” a sixth user commented.
Mena gave birth in February to the first child for her and her husband, rapper Safaree Samuels. Mena has an older son from a previous relationship. She revealed that her pregnancy with her baby girl was different from her previous pregnancy with her son.
She thanked her fans for encouraging her to stay in shape and revealed that she drinks a ton of water to remain healthy during her workouts.
