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!

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
