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!

SZA is no stranger to discussing her mental health struggles and her experiences with anxiety. In 2021, the “Good Days” singer tweeted about having “debilitating anxiety” that causes her to shield away from the public. Unfortunately, she still has those same struggles today and opened up about it during Community Voices 100th episode for Mental Health Awareness Month. While SZA enjoys making music, she’s not a fan of the spotlight, which may be surprising to many.

For some time now, the Human Design System has been picking up mainstream traction! And like so many other explorative journeys, the concept of Human Design took off via social media. Similar to Astrology, Human Design requires your birth time and date, and it also provides a map of sorts to help you navigate this world with purpose while being uniquely you (and tapping into your purpose). In fact, if you desire, the information can work simultaneously with Astrology.

Black women have been redefining what wellness looks like since the beginning of time. (I even have a real-life, sassy, still-walking-signifying-driving-gardening example of this via my own 92-year-old Granny, who is the epitome of manifestation and self-preservation, as she has always defined wellness on her own terms.) We continue to shift the narrative, especially when it comes to what "wellness" actually means as a Black woman in a world where it can be so hard to simply exist in fullness.
