Before I even start writing this I need to address the fact that Isla Fisher is 37-years-old! Holy cow, I could not believe it either! The mommy-of-two is featured on the latest cover of Fitness Magazine looking all kinds of adorable. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from the Australian cutie who starred in such films as, “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and “Wedding Crashers”.
Isla spoke to the mag about how she lost weight after giving birth to daughters Olive, aged 5, and Elula, aged 2. I kind of hate when people make losing weight sound so easy so it was refreshing to hear Isla’s honesty when discussing her journey.
I gained 65 pounds with my first baby and 70 with my second. I had severe morning sickness both times, so I mostly ate supersize bowls of white pasta with loads of butter and cheese because that was the only thing that took away the nausea. I also ate late-night cornflakes, Häagen-Dazs ice cream, and scones with jam and cream.
I had to shoot Confessions of a Shopaholic about three months after I gave birth to Olive, so the producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, hired a trainer to work with me three times a week. That was both inspirational and terrifying because I didn’t want to let the trainer down. After I had my second daughter, I slowly lost the weight by breastfeeding, hiking Runyon Canyon, and working with a trainer every couple of weeks.
Fisher, who is promoting her upcoming film, “The Great Gatsby” prefers to keep her home clear of scales! I’m thinking I might have to do this as well!
“I wouldn’t want them to see me weighing myself all the time,” she explains. “I don’t think it sends the right message.”
