Ciara bares her toned post-pregnancy body for the September 2015 issue of Shape Magazine and shared her excitement about this issue online, stating:
When I was pregnant with [son] Future, one thing I learned quickly was, don’t ever let a pregnant lady be hungry, because when I was, I was like the Tasmanian Devil!” she tells Shape magazine.
“I indulged in all the good food the world has to offer. After he was born — when I couldn’t exercise yet — I kept eating, and I gained 60 pounds.”
CiCi reveals in the article how she shed the extra weight in just 4 months through dedication and the help of a personal trainer.

Ciara on losing 60lb post-pregnancy weight in 4 months:
…as soon as the doctor said I could start training again, I was on the treadmill the very next day.
Once I got back into it, I worked out two or three times daily. I would go to [trainer] Gunnar Peterson first for my one-hour training session, then I’d have two more cardio sessions later in the day.
That, along with a really clean eating plan, was how I lost 60 pounds in four months. It was a very intense program, and I was extremely focused on it.
