While it was unanimous that anyone who is able to lose the baby weight deserves a round of applause, Keri Russell's down-to-earth attitude about it all is really refreshing, which could be why you picked her as the best new mom slimdown of 2007 — by a landslide, might I add. She recently told Self, "I stayed really physical during my pregnancy. I stuck to my normal prepregnancy workout, minus the stomach exercises and twisting. I really felt it help my whole well-being."
It's always important to keep in mind that celebs have resources many of us do not, so it's OK if it takes you a little (or a lot) longer than Keri to get back to your prebaby weight. Regardless of who you are there are many things to be proud of as a new mom and getting back to a healthy prebaby weight is definitely one of them.
