Ayesha Curry recently dropped a series of photos that revealed her miraculous weight loss transformation and I'm suddenly regretting the fact that I ate an entire box of swiss rolls before noon today. Earlier this month, the 31-year-old damn near broke the internet when she posed for a photo that showed off her 35-pound weight loss and xoNecole has all the details on exactly how she did it.
According to Ayesha, five months of HIIT intervals, cardio, and floor work have her snatched and summer-ready, which is an achievement that the mother-of-three says is more than a decade in the making. She explained in an Instagram Live video:
"I spent my entire 20s having babies, nursing babies. Now it's my turn to nurse myself. I'm Jamaican, I'm strong, I'm fast and I'm resilient. Negativity only makes a mom go harder, word to the wise."
Among Ayesha's biggest supporters in her weight loss journey is her husband, Steph, who she says has been by her side every step of the way. Although the Currys are working to find a healthy work-life balance during the pandemic, Ayesha has been adamant about making time to work on her fitness on a consistent basis. She wrote in a caption:
"Couples workout session into family workout session. I could dig it. We counted it as PE today in between math and reading… and timeouts."
In a recent interview with ELLE, Ayesha explained that she is intentional about her mental, emotional, and physical wellness because it's important for her daughters to know that self-care isn't selfish:
"I'm trying to teach them self-care is important at an early age. That wasn't something I was taught so I had to learn it on the fly. People forget to take care of themselves and the world moves so fast these days. It's important for me to teach them that it's okay to have a minute to themselves. I was in a space where I had three kids in six years and I forgot about myself. I'm finally getting back to a space now where I'm remembering it's okay to take a minute. I just want to make sure they know that from a young age that it's not selfish to want to better yourself, to take care of yourself, or to make yourself feel good."
