I had two and half pounds sitting on my belly after having the 4th baby. I was tucking this big ass thing of skin, of fat into my pants. Imagine all that skin…I went, I got a tummy tuck. I got my breast done and then I gained 40lbs. Because you think, ‘Oh I got this, I’m good now.’ Surgery took my skin off, I have to work out. I have to watch what I eat. I really have to train.
