LeToya Luckett Is Putting The ‘Werk’ In Workouts To Drop Post-Baby Weight

And she’s doing so on her own damn terms!

Celebrity News

Our favorite gal, Ms. LeToya Luckett, is a goddessssss, and we're so here for her and everything she is about. As we all know, she recently gave birth to her second child, Tysun (and YES, I said 'recently' because anything under a year is recent, which I feel like we don't talk about enough, but anyway...), and she has been on the move ever since to achieve her pre-baby goals. And admirably, she hasn't put any public pressure on herself to lose the weight.

In fact, she's doing so on her own damn time, and she has been snatching edges in the process.

I'm not kidding, sis looks tf goodT! She's even bringing the kids along for the journey. Of one of her recent workouts, she says:

"Let's G O! New workout fit! Who dis? Me & the little one decided to take it outside for a good ol' cardio workout. Loving my @whatwaistofficial sports wear, complete with this bucket hat to top off my look. Ready to WERK! Ready to SWEAT! Ready to look & feel my BEST!"

In the past, Luckett has certainly discussed the pressures of losing baby weight by basically saying she not trying to hear all that and focusing on her own pace. After she gave birth to daughter, Gianna, she wrote on IG:

"I have to say that as tough as my journey has been at times, I wouldn't trade it for NOTHIN! This body carried a WHOLE life for 9months bruh! 😩 it took me 9months to gain it & I know it's not just going to fall off overnight, so I'm pacing myself. I'm doing my best to eat right workout & most of all focus on my mental health."

With both children, Luckett has shared her workout journey, including videos of herself getting her fitness on in the house, running with strollers, and hitting the pavement by any means. It was most important for the singer to not be too hard on herself.

"Everyone's journey is very different. We look in the mirror before we have a child and we're like, 'Oh, this is me, this is who I am. This is the LeToya that I know. Then, you have the baby, and you're so excited. You go back to that same mirror, and you go, 'Wait a minute. Who is this? What body?' But here's the thing, it's still you. Regardless if it's a new you, regardless if you put on a couple of pounds, or something's different. It's still you. It's you evolving and that's what I have to keep in my mind.'"

She continues:

"For me, I couldn't go into hiding. Four weeks after having Gianna, my daughter, I was on TV with all the chins, giving you all this back fat. I want people to see me in my most vulnerable state, and I need them to be able to relate because of a lot of times what you see on TV, a lot of time what you see on these stages, it's not even real. You have people that are suffering in silence because they don't want to accept their bodies or they're afraid of being bullied."

A word, sis! Keep killing it, mama!

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Exclusive: Da’Vinchi On Protecting His Peace & Why He Prioritizes Mindset Over Looks In Dating

Da’Vinchi has appeared in many television series such as All American and Grown-ish but it was his role in BMF as Terry Flenory that helped propel his career forward.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
