Seen on the cover of Fitness Magazine, Rebecca Romijn showing her form fitting figure, the American actress and former fashion model reveals how losing sixty pounds of baby weight was indeed the hardest thing she ever had to accomplish.
The thirty nine years old became a mother of twins, Dolly and Charlie almost three years past. The actress is known for her portrayal of Mystique in the X Men films, and also for her role in Ugly Betty.
She told US magazine Fitness:
’Losing that weight was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.
‘I had to change the way I worked out, the way I ate – everything.’
Romijn, who poses in bikini bottoms for the mag, said Bikram yoga – done in sweltering temperatures – had helped her get slim.
’At first the idea of doing a 90-minute workout in a 105-degree room sounded like torture,’ she said.
’But the sweating is exactly what I became addicted to.
’My body changed dramatically almost immediately. Within three classes I noticed less belly fat.
’My knees and legs are stronger than ever now; my arms have definition for the first time in my life; and my posture is much, much better.
