Michelle Madrigal wows in weight loss transformation after pregnancy
Who says you can’t be a fit mama? Nothing is impossible if you put your heart and mind to it, and actress Michelle Madrigal shows us just how to keep sexy and fit while balancing mommy duties.
Madrigal was more than determined to get back to her pre-baby body after giving birth to baby daughter Anika Austin with fiancé Troy Woolfolk last October. So much so that back in January this year, Madrigal shared on Instagram that she would be doing the eight-week “Transphormation” challenge because she wanted to be in the best shape of her life.
The change in Madrigal’s body was unmistakable, as she regularly documented her weight-loss journey on social media for all to see. Last week, Madrigal marked her 44th day into the challenge by sharing a picture of her on Instagram just to show how she had come so far—and it’s nothing short of inspiring.
“Day 44 and feeling real good!” Madrigal wrote. “This is my postpartum journey! Can’t wait to see what this #mombod could do in 4 more weeks!!!!”
Madrigal shared that her father motivated her to work out, as he is currently in the hospital due to complications in his kidney and liver.
“I’ve come to a realization that if we don’t take care of our health and body now, it will eventually sneak up on us one day! Besides wanting to win this challenge, it also motivated me to push myself and do more because of my dad.”
It will be remembered that Madrigal shared photos of her on the first day of the challenge, wearing no trace of makeup, just her unfiltered and blemished postpartum body—sallow skin and stretch marks and all.
She shared she was reluctant to share the photos at first because it wasn’t your typical edited or photoshopped Instagram content. But even so, Madrigal wanted to see just how strong her self-discipline and will were, so she bared her real postpartum body and called on her followers to join her in her weight-loss journey.
Her efforts weren’t for nothing, too. Just two days ago, Madrigal updated her followers by sharing a sexy pic of her out in the sun on Bonifacio High Street, Taguig city.
It was her last day in Manila then, and wanted to spend time with her friends and father before flying back to Austin, Texas, where she is now based with her fiancé and baby Anika.
There is no magic secret to weight loss, just a formula of healthy eating and an active lifestyle. If Madrigal can do it in 44 days, so can you! /ra
