It is absolutely okay if getting rid of the baby weight isn't your top priority.

Kim Kardashian recently got real about how difficult it can be to reach your post-baby goal weight, but it doesn't seem like her sister-in-law is having any trouble doing so. Blac Chyna, who gave birth to her daughter Dream in November, is already posting Instagram posts showing off her skinny stomach. And the internet can't seem to get enough.

In a recent clip, the reality TV star revealed that she has already lost 23 pounds since having her baby and she doesn't plan on stopping any time soon. "Goal 130 post baby weight," she said and shared several pictures of herself in a body-hugging black-and-white jumpsuit.

While her accomplishment might seem incredible, it's important to remember that getting rid of that baby weight doesn't have to be every mom's top priority. As Chrissy Teigen highlighted last week, there's an unrealistic idealism behind celebrities and their seemingly perfect post-baby lives. Remember that celebs have every resource imaginable available to them, giving them the time and help needed to get back into shape quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately, that's just not a reality for your everyday mom.

Pregnancy and childbirth are hard enough as it is without the added pressure of losing that baby weight immediately. You did grow a human being inside of you, and that's something to be exceptionally proud of. Even if your doctor gives you the all-clear after six weeks, studies show it takes the average woman a year to recover physically and emotionally after childbirth. So cut yourself some slack and remember that you're amazing and beautiful just the way you are.
