Jessie James Decker opens up about her post-pregnancy weight loss in a Instagram post on Tuesday.
Jessie James Decker is really about her struggle to lose weight after the birth of her third child, son Forrest, last March.
On Tuesday, the 30-year-old country singer shared before and after the post-pregnancy photos on Instagram, showing off her noticeable weight loss. In the pic, the Decker takes a selfie as she hits the gym, and in the after photo, she looks fitter than ever in a pink bikini.
Decker, who credits her weight loss to following the South Beach Diet-which emphasizes eating high-fiber, low-glycemic carbohydrates, unsaturated fats and lean protein — admits that she struggled with her body changes after the birth.
“I know that you will see that there are many people in the public eye and they make weight in what seems like five minutes after having a baby and I think we all feel that we need to meet these expectations,” she writes.
“I’ve even been guilty of that myself and I think I should hurry and lose weight two months after having a baby when I see all these skinny girls post baby, but that’s just not realistic for the majority of us. I have every shape and size in the past 4 1/2 years of having children and never had to worry about losing weight until I had children. I had a good metabolism and had always been that way before.”

“Having children definitely changed everything and I am so blessed and grateful for my baby as y’all know, but it can definitely test your self-esteem if you are accustomed to look and feel a certain way,” she continues. “I’ve been up to 165 pounds with my first baby, and 5’1 it was very hard on my frame and I definitely self-esteem wise.”
These days, Decker says that her goal is to be happy and healthy, not just “skinny.”
“Don’t ever feel that you are on a dead-end road or you want to give up or feel hopeless,” she tells her followers. “… I’ve even included a before and after shot. I’m a little nervous about showing y’all that before because I was pretty uncomfortable, but I want to make it real with you!”
