Mom•Logic friend Trista Sutter discusses her bikini cover.
Trista and Ryan Sutter are reality show royalty, having met on the set of the Bachelorette, later marrying and now living happily in Colorado with their 5-month-old son, Max. Trista graces the cover of the latest issue of Us, looking quite svelte in her bikini. We reached out to her to follow up on her bod and babe.
On Sticking to her Diet: "Considering it is after the shoot in Hawaii, I have slacked off a little this week. I will get back on track next week, but I did eat some lemon tea bread from Whole Foods this morning for breakfast. When I am being really bad, I will go for Wendy's french fries dipped in a Frosty--its unbelievable. I don't believe in diets and will splurge now and then--its all about moderation!"
Her one weight loss tip: "I took two Revolution Abdominal Cuts every day, which are workout supplements."
On Trying for Baby #2: "We would love to have two babies close in age because I am an only child and think it would be nice for two children to grow up together. We're not necessarily trying, just being a normal husband and wife. It took two years for us to get pregnant with Max, and because it was our first, we were gung-ho about making the experience picture-perfect. Now that we have Max, we are a lot less stressed about getting pregnant. If it doesn't happen, we'll be satisfied with one child or consider adopting down the road."
On Facing Bikini Backlash: "The last time I was on Us, people were upset because they thought I was 'complaining' about my post baby weight too close to Max's birth. Some said I didn't appreciate Max or the body that housed him for nine months, which of course was not true. I just wanted to be fit and healthy so that I had more energy to care for him and live longer. The longer I live, the longer I can be with my child. So far everything I read about this cover has been positive."
On Max being almost 6 months old: "He won't fall asleep, and he's also developed this blood curdling scream when he's tired. The scream rocks me to the core, and I can't focus on anything. As a mother, it's so hard to hear, and you feel helpless. So right now, its about finding a way to get him to sleep more."
