Less than two months after giving birth to her second child, Ciara has stepped on the scale to share her postpartum weight loss with fans. The 31-year-old took to social media on Tuesday to document losing eight pounds this past week.
Ciara said her weight loss goal for the week was 10 pounds, but is satisfied with going from 183 lbs. to 175 lbs. In addition to the latest weigh-in, Ciara also stated she lost 20 pounds during the first four weeks after giving birth to her daughter. The singer welcomed Sienna Princess on April 28 with husband Russell Wilson, but has yet to share any photos of the newborn.
In her new Instagram post, Ciara said she about ‘died’ this past week trying to lose more weight. However, Ciara then added she was about to go eat a cheeseburger and brownie after sharing her latest weight loss with fans.
Her followers complimented her honesty in how much work it takes to lose weight as they left comments on the post. Others stated Ciara should enjoy her cheeseburger as it was well-deserved.
Ciara also informed her 16.6 million Instagram followers that her goal is to lose another three or four pounds this coming week as well. It seems the new mom is keeping her weight loss goals realistic as she treats herself to a cheat day.
People magazine reported on Ciara’s initial weight loss as she claimed she gained 60 pounds while pregnant with her daughter. The “Goodies” performer may have surprised fans by sharing her current weight as some celebrities tend to be a bit more secretive when it comes to how much they’ve gained.
“I said I wasn’t going to gain 60lbs Carrying Sienna, and… I did exactly that!! … 4 weeks after her birth I lost 20 lbs. This Weeks Goal is 10 lbs. I was 183 yesterday.”
The article also stated Ciara gained the same amount while pregnant with her son, Future Zahir, whom she shares with rapper Future. While she’s been sharing her weight loss journey with fans, Ciara has been keeping a low profile when it comes to posting images of herself. Instead, she’s been busy sharing throwback photos from before becoming pregnant.
But her fans don’t seem to mind as they like and comment on her posts. Some of her followers seem to worry about Ciara giving up her music career now that she’s married to a professional football player and is a mother of two as they comment on her most recent posts.
“Love you CiCi please don’t give up music yet. You are [one of] my top five favorite female performers.”
Fans may not need to worry about Ciara retiring from the business just yet, though, as she is obviously working hard to get back into shape. Prior to her pregnancy, Cici flaunted a toned body as she showcased her dance skills in music videos and in social media posts.
It appears she’s dedicated to getting her figure back and is doing it her way as she celebrates the recent weight loss with a burger.
