Andi Eigenmann Back To Pre-Pregnant Weight; Still Addressing Diastasis RectiAndi Eigenmann lost only 10 pounds since November 2019, but she feels great!by Rachel Perez .
"I'm now 125 pounds," Andi said in a series of Instagram Stories over the weekend. "I only lost 10 pounds since November. You know why? Because I'm not relying on the scale," she said, adding that she weighed the same pounds before she got pregnant.
Though Andi has slimmed down to her weight before she got pregnant, she still wears size 4 clothes and not size 2 clothes as she did then. "Now, I am a size 4, which is honestly my size forever. Like that's my average size," Andi said. She wants to get back to a size 2, but she's not forcing it.
"I've been looking and feeling as fit already as I was before gaining any pregnancy weight, but I'm not there yet. I'm just showing you guys that it's possible," the mom of two shared.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

Women should have a postpartum fitness recovery plan tailored for their own goals.
Andi believes that a healthy eating lifestyle is crucial to moms' postpartum fitness recovery. "It's not like a diet na, parang, 'Oh, I'm gonna do this for a week para I lose weight' or reach a certain goal," she explained. Andi eats as clean as she can, avoiding processed foods, foods with trans fat or MSG, and artificial sugar.
Apart from doing Pilates to address diastasis recti, the surfer mama has also been exercising, doing yoga, and swimming to keep fit. Still, Andi reminded new moms to have their postpartum workout routine tailored for them and not just copy what she does.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
"You have to exercise and come up with a workout routine that works best for you... Don't just copy what I'm doing," Andi stressed. "To reach the goal, you have to know what's best for you," she added.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
What Andi does recommend is to have a strong support, which she has with partner Philmar Alipayo, who has been crucial to her postpartum fitness. "Find yourselves a man who motivates you to not be lazy, to go after your goals," she said.
