Melissa Joan Hart Rocks Bikini, Weight Loss Tips

by at . Comments

Looking at bikini photos of Melissa Joan Hart now, it's hard to believe that she was "horrified" by unflattering bathing suit pics of her - or that she has given birth to two kids in the last three years. But the girl looks hella good.

"I still read blogs about me discussing how fat I've become," the former Sabrina, the Teenage Witch star revealed to People magazine in its new issue.

"Everyone still thinks I'm huge," says Hart, 33, who has Mason, 3, and Braydon, 14 months, with husband, Course of Nature singer Mark Wilkerson.

"But I'm not anymore!"

Reclaiming her figure took Melissa Joan Hart 14 months of hard work.

"It didn't happen by magic – it was as hard for me as it would be for anyone," Melissa Joan Hart says. "I didn't want to take any time away from my sons."

Hart says there are enormous pressures put on by a public that has grown accustomed to seeing stars get back in skinny jeans mere weeks after giving birth, not to mention anorexic waifs like Lindsay Lohan flaunting their rib cages hard.

Her inspiration to finally get back in the best shape of her life? The women in her life, including her friend, actress Jaime Pressly, who has a son, Dezi, 2.

"I realized I didn't have to be heavy just because I have kids," she says. Adds Pressly: "She took the time to take care of herself. I'm blown away."

To get back in bikini shape, Hart worked with nutritionist Derek Johnson to change her diet. She also hit the gym with trainer Mark Harari.

As for how she feels now? "I feel amazing!" she says. "I had to prove to myself that I could do it. I had to give it a go!"

Autumn, that is not true. You have to take into consideration that some people are athletes and way more then normal because of all their muscle. Im 5'4" and 150 pounds because I run, play volleyball, and play football with my step dad. I look 130 because muscle is lean. But my doctor says because of all my muscle, I am at a perfect weight for my height.

Haha, I weigh 155 I'm 5'2, and though I do have a large frame and athletic build, I wear size 8's in jeans and have a 29 inch waist, 37 inch chest, and 39 inch hips (though I was 5 lbs heaver when these measurements were done). And I can tell you right now Melissa does NOT weigh no damn 117. Back when I weighed like 112, I was anorexic-looking and wore size zeros in jeans and they were loose. Websites say for an hourglass figure (like mine) an ideal weight for a 5'2 height is like 135-143 ish.

Only a fat person would say that.

if you are 5'2 depending on your genetics and bone and muscle you are not always extremely overweight if you are 155 and over. There are more facts you have to consider than that is more commonly known.

Lanie, it's not their fault you are insulted. 5'2 at 155 is extremely overweight & that isn't being said to hurt anyone's feelings. It is just extremely unhealthy. Not saying womens' bones should be sticking out or anything, but we should all try to remain in the best physical shape we can. We Only live once! We shouldn't live it being unhealthy and miserable. I don't think losing weight should be about "having your ribs sticking out, or looking sexy in a bikini" it should be about being in great shape, having good health, &knowing anything is possible. ----I love melissa joan hart! good for her. :) & her husband is so fine.

To think the delicious girl of Clarissa Explains It All had becomed a whale.... Very sad. I hope she has really lost all that weight and it isn´t just some kind of photoshop magic. "E a Luísa, enquanto pagava um boquete pro Gasparinho, disse prá ele: piroca de fantasma é geladinha".

155 pounds on a 5'2 woman puts her at a BMI of 28.6...that's overweight and almost obese even. A healthy weight range for a 5'2 individual would be anywhere between 103 pounds to 135 pounds. They should stick to the mid-higher end of their healthy weight range if they have a larger frame, and stay on the lower-mid range if they have smaller frames. Ofcourse going by BF% would be more accurate as a measure of good health, some women who have healthy BMI's are actually 'overfat' when it comes to their BF%.

She was merely saying that on her figure, 155 pounds is a lot more. She is only 5'2"! Now, generally, 155 pounds on a woman is not overweight I understand - but enough of her phrasing it better. Her story should be one that inspires women who have given birth to get back in shape. Even after giving birth to two children she managed to get back into shape again! And look at her! She's 33 and she looks like she's 25.
