Kate Middleton Working on Losing the Baby Weight -- Is She Nuts?

Say What!? 10

kate middletonDid you catch those photos of Kate Middleton in skinny jeans at her first official public appearance? Considering how slim she was through her pregnancy, it's no surprise at all to see her looking pretty much back to her pre-pregnancy size, as far as we can tell. But here's the bananas part: According to an insider, Kate Middleton is "working on getting her slender figure back ... she wants to get back into shape." Um. Okay. Someone please tell me, is there another definition for the words "slender" and "back" that I don't know about? Because slender is already here.

Psst, Kate. Can we chat a moment? Come here. Close. Really close so I can whisper in your ear.

YOU! ARE! ALREADY! SLENDER! Maybe the scale is telling you that you weigh more now than you did before your pregnancy. First of all, why do you even own a scale? Throw that thing away. You don't need it. Secondly, chill out, lady. It's only been five weeks. If you're active and you're breastfeeding, you'll lose those Snuffleupagus imaginary pregnancy pounds we can't see, no problem. And if you don't? They'll probably drop after you stop breastfeeding, because that's how it works for some moms.

But most of all, don't get all crazy-crazy neurotic over your weight. Not now. This is a great time to cultivate a healthy self-image. I know you're in the public eye all the time, and there will always be assholes who take a microscope to your thighs and yelp gleefully if you so much as gain an ounce. You need to learn how to tune them out. More importantly, you need to tune out that inner voice that's always telling you you're not thin enough. Because I know, thin girls get dysmorphia.

But hey, getting back into your fitness routine, eating healthy, that's fantastic. Just please, promise us to go easy on yourself. Do what comes naturally for your body, in your own time. And enjoy that little baby.

Do you think there's too much pressure to lose weight quickly after having a baby?

She just wants to be back to the size she was before she became pregnant. She's a very smart woman, she will be most careful, more so now because of the little man

There is absolutely far too much emphasis on losing baby weight. Every time you read a story about a celebrity giving birth, how long it will take to lose the weight is always mentioned. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to get back to pre pregnancy size, just how much pressure women are under is atrocious.

She has been worrying frail since the engagement (just look at the photos of her from about 16-28--she looked healthy, and that wasn't baby fat.) I have zero respect for the woman as a role model, but I do feel bad for the tremendous pressure she must be under to look so thin. Let's face it, the royals are no longer anything but celebrities... but they're the most covered in the world.

Good advice from the columnist Kate, You do look great and I am envious

For all you people that are knocking Kate for wanting to lose weight. Did you ever think she wants to fit back into her regular clothes. Yes she looks good but we all want to be the way we were before we got pregnant. Just leave her alone!!

Yes, there is. I pity female celebrities because the media attacks them when they still look fuller post birth. They are just cruel. So celebs feel pressured to get back in shape. It's sad, really.   Theyre not even allowed to look like they've ever been pregnant or have given birth.

I guess only the Duchess can see her problem areas, but truly, she is lucky to look so slim just dome 5 weeks after birth!

its not really that at all. many forget she had almost a six pack going on before the baby like at the olympics she had a flat toned tummy. and only woman who have had a baby before know your tummy relaxes and feels like jello after a baby even skinny moms it does not feel the same until you do ab works outs again to regain the tummy muscles you lost during nine months.
