Katherine Heigl reveals her post baby bod pictures.
Katherine Heigl just posted side-by-side shots of her post baby body transformation — and it is equal parts deeply relatable and deeply, deeply unrelatable. On the one hand, she opens up about wanting to feel sexy and strong after giving birth. Totally, I’m right there with you. On the other hand, she looks like a friggin’ supermodel — abs and all — by the end. Proceed with caution.
Heigl took to Instagram to share her baby body fitness journey, which started just after she gave birth 14 months ago. She only snapped a couple of shots throughout because she was too busy “covering it all up those months, not posing in [her] unders.” Yup, that’s fair.
It’s been almost 14 months since Joshua Jr was born and it has taken me about that long to really get back in shape. The first pic was taken one month after he was born. The second pic was taken almost a full year later and the last pic was taken this weekend. I wish I had a few from in between the first and second so you could really see how slow my progress was but alas…I was busy covering it all up those months, not posing in my unders! Anyway, I have a beach vacation coming up, a new job I start filming in April and my deep desire to feel fit, strong and sexy propelling me forward the last two months to finally loose the last of my baby weight and do a deep dive search for the ab muscles I knew were buried under that belly somewhere! I was wholly and totally inspired by Miss @rachparcell and the before and after pics she shared after taking the #bbg challenge. I had never heard of it but she looked so damn great (she had her baby just a few months before me) that I had to check it out. I found a fantastic app called #sweat that features several different #bbg programs you can choose from and makes it incredibly easy to do anywhere, which for me means in my bedroom at home! I won’t lie, the workouts are real ass kickers but the progress I’ve made in only 5 short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going! I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs and wasn’t forced by work to snap back into shape but it is time to make the strength, fitness and overall health of my body a priority and I am so grateful that @rachparcell shared her story and got this mama motivated!

Mhmmm, those ab muscles are certainly there. Side note: I would happily take the abs in picture #2 as well. Like, that would actually be a DREAM.
Heigl attributes her fitness results to the BBG (Bikini Body Guide) Program, which consists of three day a week, 28 minute workout sessions. It can be done at home, so actually please sign me up immediately. The actress warned that the workouts can be a real “ass kicker” but definitely well worth all the pain.
“The progress I’ve made in only 5 short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going!” she wrote. “I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs.”
And that she did. That she did.
When you’re done drooling over Hiegl’s stomach/legs/overall physique, scroll on down through her Instagram for some very, very adorable baby pictures. Fitness is fun and all, but helloooo cute chubby baby cheeks.
Here’s to getting lots of inspiration from Katherine Heigl’s workout and doing some heavy duty sweating of your own. Or, if you’d prefer to just watch a Katherine Heigl movie instead (highly recommend 27 Dresses), I’m totally good with that too.
