Do new moms feel pressure to lose baby weight?

Apparently the pressure to lose baby weight applies to celebrity and regular women.

Kourtney Kardashian was extremely offended when OK! magazine photo-shopped her cover photo. She posed with her newborn son, Mason, and Kardashian said that they made it look as if she already lost her baby weight. The magazine also said that she only gained 26 pounds during her pregnancy; Kardashian says she gained 40.

Kardashian shares what helped her lose the baby weight.

Jessica Alba skipped to the gym two weeks after her pregnancy.

Here are some before and after pictures of celebrities.

For those of us without personal trainers her are some tips from 18 ordinary women.

Never a Bare Face

I love it when people jump at the chance to comment on celebrities without makeup.

Do you think that female celebrities should look there very best all the time?

They already have to deal with people critiquing their red carpet outfits, an event they often spend thousands of dollars to look there very best and yet people are still eager to see them when the glam fades away.

A top story for Us Magazine today was See what Beyonce looks like without makeup.

Apparently people’s flaws are at the top of our interest list.

I don’t know about you. But I think she looks pretty cute for just crawling out of bed. I like looking in the mirror in the morning and checking out my crazy bed head. I applaud her even more for walking outside and flashing the paparazzi a huge smile!

I enjoy seeing celebrities in their own skin and seeing that they can look beautiful even without their hair and makeup done. I’d hate having to put on makeup and do my hair everyday, it’s such a waste of time and energy.

But we must expect to keep up appearances though, aren’t we now?
