The former ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ star now boasts a slender 113-lb. frame after losing the 42 pounds she gained after having two sons with husband Mark Wilkerson.
“I still read blogs about me discussing how fat I’ve become,” Hart says. “Everyone still thinks I’m huge. But I’m not anymore!”
Despite the “enormous pressures put on you in Hollywood,” Hart says she looked at her mother Paula and friend Jaime Pressly as good examples of women who given birth and kept their shape.
“I realized I didn’t have to be heavy just because I have kids,” says Hart.
With the help of a nutritionist and fitness trainer, Hart lost the weight over 14 months. “It didn’t happen by magic (hee, hee, get it? Magic… Sabrina?) – it was as hard for me as it would be for anyone else,” she says.
Hart says she feels amazing. “I had to prove to myself that I could do it. I had to give it a go!”
Keep up the good workout, Melissa!
