[photogallerylink id=2065 align=left]Mariah Carey is looking better than ever, after giving birth to twins less than a year ago! She stopped by the Rosie show to talk about her weight loss & pregnancy…

During their conversation, she told Rosie about her shocking body transformation saying,

“In the beginning, when I first had the babies, I had so much edema … water and swelling. Most pregnant woman have that just in their feet. One day I was doing my thank-you notes and I noticed it started rising up the leg, so I had edema. … I didn’t think I would ever be the same person.”

So how did that affect her famous figure?

“The first week, I lost 40 lbs. … of just water. It was just water, initially. When I started with the program, I lost at least 30 lbs. of weight that needed to be lost.”

And though she’s all smiles when talking about Moroccan and Monroe now, she reveals being pregnant was a rough experience.

“I had a really tough pregnancy. I was supposed to be on bed rest, but it was so bad that even bed hurt. I learned a lot being pregnant, watching my body change.”

And on the weight journey, she says,

“The whole point of this is not just like: ‘Oh, hey, look at me and my weight loss, I’m fantastic.’ It’s really health. Like I said, I learned it when I became helpless and felt so vulnerable like never before in my life.”

Check her out on the cover of US Weekly!
