r Beyonce's 57 pound weight loss and post baby body in Shape

Beyonce is gracing the cover of the April issue of Shape magazine, where inside the superstar singer talks about losing her baby weight — all 57 pounds of it.

“I didn’t have a lot of time to lose the weight because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again!” laughs Beyonce, who gave birth to baby Blue Ivy in January 2012.

Shape editor-in-chief Tara Kraft adds, “Talking about weight can be a very touchy subject for women, but Beyonce was willing to do it because she wanted to make every woman out there feel like she too could achieve what she did.”
