Kendra Wilkinson on Her Post-Baby Body: "My Curves Shocked Me"

After giving birth to son Hank Baskett IV last December, reality star Kendra Wilkinson went from a toned and taut size two up a few sizes into uncharted territory. “My curves shocked me big-time,” admits the E! star. “It was a whole other woman I was looking at in the mirror.” While Kendra is enjoying her new “different” body, she’s looking forward to getting that tone back. “About two months ago, I stopped making excuses. It’s time to get out there and really bust my ass like I used to,” she says of her now hour-long workouts at the gym and new healthier eating habits, which include salads, grilled chicken and chewing gum to curb cravings. “I was so used to being fit and skinny,” she says. “I never had to lose weight until now. I want my muscle back–I don’t want anything jiggling. Cardio for me is number one. I need the cardio because I can tone my body, but I gotta burn the fat off!” One step in the right direction? “We didn’t have my stripper pole in my house ever since I gave birth, now we’re going hang it up. I feel sexy again.” –Jennifer Garcia

Seriously? This has got to be the vainest mindset ever. Oh you were shocked by some extra baby weight were you? Well welcome to the real world. Although the real world for you was probably gaining a whopping 20 extra pounds. I’m 8 months pregnant right now, and guess what, I gained 45 pounds, and I’ve gotta work hard to lose that. I have stretch marks, and my breasts are sagging. This is baby number two for me. There are more important things to be shocked about other than some post baby weight. Of course there’s going to be extra weight at first, YOUR HUMAN. Or are you? No you just live in a playboy fantasy world with money and no cares in the world, and the best trainers and cooks to whip you back into shape. God forbid you have to do it like a normal person!

Kendra looks great! If you think she looks fat its because you are jealous and then you might as well not comment if you are going to be mean. Its not like the process of getting your body back happens over night. She is doing a great job and looking great! Keep up the good work Kendra!

If everyone would watch the video of Kendra’s photo shoot then you all would see that she is fat & this picture has been completely touched up.

WOW there are some jealous haters out there….Kendra is hilarious, her show is real, she did gain a lot of weight for her size, she was not afraid to show how upset and discouraged she was…I could totally relate to her. She looks great!! Keep up the good work Kendra!!!

she looks great the way she is right now. not bone thin & anorexic looking, and not huge! shes perfect. but why all the sudden is she obsessing over her weight? after she gave birth she was raving about how she loved her new body & said how thicker woman shouldnt be ashamed of being bigger. & now shes making a big deal about it???? which is it kendra??

I love watching Kendra’s show because it makes me feel good about myself. I just had a baby in January (my 2nd) and the weight is not leaving as fast as it did with my 1st- and I only gained 25 lbs. I almost cried the episode where her wedding ring couldn’t fit because mine didn’t either and I thought I was weird. Proud to say it finally fits again but I still have the little belly like she talks about all the time and I’m really beginning to wonder if my belly button will ever go in again.
Kendra don’t listen to negative people. You do what you can and screw everyone else. That Kelly chick obviously has not had a baby (thank God!), or it could be a guy too, it is a unisex name.

I think they forgot to airbrush the cankles.

LOL . . .I love the fact she thought she was fat. She was basically an average aize that happened to be out of shape. What did she think by having a child her body wouldn’t change? Glad she worked her butt off and did it the healthy weigh as opposed to others who starve themselves or opt for surgery.
