Alana de la Garza, former Law & Order actress, keeps it lighthearted when discussing how she’s trying to lose the baby weight.
“My method? I chase my husband [Michael Roberts] around the neighborhood as he sits in the back of a pickup truck, holding a fishing pole with an ice-cream sandwich dangling seductively from it,” the new mom tells Latina.
“I’m joking…it’s actually a cheeseburger!”
But, on the more serious side, she admits she can get pretty frustrated. “At first you lose a ton of water weight and that feels great. Then you look in the mirror and say, ‘What is that little layer around my waist? Ugh!’” she says.
“I think women are too hard on themselves. I have 12 more pounds to lose and I’ll have to work for it.”
So, how does she work for it? Cardio, Pilates and taking walks with her new baby Kieran. Breastfeeding has also done wonders for restoring her pre-pregnancy body.
No matter how difficult her struggle, Alana says, “Kieran is so worth it!”
