Gwyneth Paltrow: Losing The Baby Weight Was “By Far The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Done”

Though her svelte figure may show no signs of it now, actress Gwyneth Paltrow had a difficult time losing weight after the birth of her second child, Moses, in April 2006.

“After my first pregnancy, the weigh had come off a little bit better but after the second one it was really stubborn,” said the 37-year-old Iron Man star, according to The Press Association. “It was really hanging on. It was not easy and, when I started it, it was by far the hardest thing I have ever done – but I really was seeing results so it motivated me to just work through it.”

Gwyneth’s works out for two hours each day, and was able to lose her baby weight with the help of celeb trainer Tracy Anderson. However, she remains confident that any mama can find their pre-baby body, even without the aid of a personal trainer.

Every woman can make time – every woman – and you can do it with your baby in the room. There have been countless times where I’ve worked out with my kids crawling around all over the place. You just make it work, and if it’s important to you, it’ll be important to them.

Gwyneth and her rocker hubby Chris Martin have been married since 2003 and have two children – Apple, 6, and Moses, 4.

    uh, Gwyneth–losing your dad and or getting over your dad’s death should have been the hardest thing for you to do…in the same article, she said that any woman can shed the baby weight. I agree with her but who has 2 hours a day to work out and all the luxuries that money can buy. gawd, she’s annoying

    Wow — the most striking thing about this is that she works out two hours a day WITH A PERSONAL TRAINER, and she still struggled to lose her pregnancy weight.

    And then she concludes with “oh, every – EVERY- woman can do this…” Bulls**t — while it may be true that all women are capable of getting in shape after having a baby, this woman clearly has some screws loose. How can you insist that it’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done (despite having a lot of help in doing it — help that most women don’t have), and then go on to say that anyone can do it? She needs a good dose of humility and maybe to do some traveling to other parts of the world and learn what a truly “hard life” is like.

      “this woman clearly has some screws loose.”
      Agree that this is not just pretentiousness on her part, but that Gwynnie is really not the brightest bulb on the porch. She can’t put one and one together.

      don’t forget the personal chef who can make delicious low cal meals and do all the measuring, etc. for her so she has the right portions at the right time

    I don’t like how celebs try to insist that “the every-day woman” can do what they they cannot! We don’t have oodles of money at our dispense, nannies on call (if necessary), nor does every woman have a career that allows her to have as much time off as celebs do to get back into shape. It’s just not realistic. What they do works for them and we can take pieces of that to make it work for ourselves. But sending this false impression that all woman can do it like she’s doing it, is just a lie. Not every woman has it like that. While she’s working out, she may have a personal chef preparing dinner for her and her fam. Not the average woman, the average woman IS the personal chef for the family, lol!

    “every woman can make time”?! i barely have 30 minutes to work out, and definitely don’t have 2 hours a day to work out like she does. props to her for looking so great after pregnancy though.

    Anonymous 4:17 — the day she blessedy falls into obscurity and we are never again forced to listen to her blathering or see her oatmeal-like face and skinny/ugly self will be a day for champagne and making merry. She has the personality of a tuna sandwich without the tuna. Her association with the flim-flam con artist Tracy Anderson (whose personal training for GOOP, other than whittling her down to what resembles a stick insect, is light years less than impressive) shows her true character and intelligence (or should I say lack thereof).

    Yep, I’ll tell ya how I really feel….LOL!!!!
