Glamour model Imogen Thomas said she waited eight weeks after giving birth to her first child to begin exercising again and stressed that mums should “enjoy their baby”.
The 30-year-old revealed how “hard work and dedication” resulted in her post-baby weight loss as she posted “before” and “after” photos of herself online.
“New mums... don’t give up look how far I’ve come... hard work & dedication. Healthy eating & exercise #size10 [sic],” she captioned the shots.
The model followed her photos up with another message that read, “Just wanna say though nobody rush-enjoy your baby.
“I had 8wks before doing anything & felt then I was ready. Each to their own [sic]”
Thomas gave birth to her first baby, daughter Ariana, with her Australian businessman boyfriend Adam Horsley in February.
The model’s Twitter posts were met with a positive reaction online.
“I think it’s great that Imogen Thomas has posted a pic of before & after her weight loss. Very inspiring and honest! [sic]” one Twitter user wrote.
“Thank you for this tweet!” another new mum wrote, “My baby is 6 weeks and I still don’t feel fully ready yet! They aren’t babies forever! [sic]”
Imogen Thomas recently revealed to Now magazine that she has dropped from a size 16 to a size 10 in the four months since Ariana’s birth.
