​Yes, you read that number right. 61 pounds! You go, Blake Lively!


The 30-year-old has just taken to Instagram to show off her fitness journey since giving birth to her second child in September 2016. 

"Turns out you can’t lose the 61 lbs you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through instragram and wondering why you don’t look like all the bikini models," she begins her caption.

​​She shared a photo in workout gear alongside personal trainer Don Saladino, who she thanked for helping her through the process.

"Thanks @donsaladino for kickin my A double S into shape. 10 months to gain, 14 months to lose. Feeling very proud," the caption concluded.

While speaking to ​E! News last February, Blake explained how she's learned to love her body since pregnancy and childbirth. "It's all a process. You know after the second kid it's really different. So this is not my normal body, but I like it," she said.

"I'm learning to love my body in every iteration, and I think that's hard for women, and so I learned a lot," she continued.

And she looks absolutely fabulous! We're so proud of her ourselves, and happy she decided to share this lengthy journey with her fans. It's true, just looking at bikini models on Instagram doesn't get us anywhere.
