Chrissy Teigen is one honest mama. When the supermodel—and super mama—recently tweeted about losing baby weight, things got real.

In a recent tweet Teigen asked herself, “how do you eat like this??” She followed up the self-directed question with an awesomely honest explanation: she just loves food too much. But that wasn’t the only amazing gem from her self-interview.

Teigen reveals in the tweet that she’s 20 pounds heavier now than before she had baby Miles 10 months ago. Along with adding that she hasn’t lost the last little bit of baby weight because of her adoration for eating, she also tweeted that she’s coming to terms with her “new normal.”

This isn’t the first time Teigen has opened up about her postpartum body. Back in September, Teigen told Women’s Health, “Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I’m supposed to be. I’ve been so used to that number for 10 years now. And then I started realizing it was a swimsuit-model weight. There’s a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit.”

So if you haven’t lost the baby weight, don’t fret; we’re loving Teigen’s refreshing approach about coming to terms with your own “new normal,” whatever that looks like to you.
