Giannis Antetokounmpo and Mariah Riddlesprigger have created a wonderful family with the birth of two sons. The partner of the top basketball player has been discreetly standing by his side for a few years and supports him every step of the way.
Maraih after two pregnancies which were in a short period of time, had put on some kilos which she lost.
With her post on Instagram, she explained how with intensive exercise and a proper diet she managed to lose around 12 kilos.
"I have debated for quite a while about this post, two months to be exact. On February 1, I set out with a goal of losing 25 pounds by the end of Giannis’ season. I committed to that goal. I was working out 5-6 days a week, maintaining a healthy diet, and exclusively drinking water, but the number on the scale was not moving!
"I was disappointed, confused, and embarrassed because something that used to be so easy for me now seemed impossible. But around mid May, I would see the differences in the mirror.
"My friends and family commented that I was looking good. I felt great, physically, but that scale was not budging! I felt like giving up, but the mirror told me that the scale was lying, and my body was telling me to keep going.
"I realized that the scale isn’t everything, especially if I can see and feel the results. I’m learning to love this new body, and I may not have achieved my goal on the scale, but I achieved my smaller goals and am becoming the healthy woman I set out to be!
"I couldn’t have done it and continue to do it without so many people holding me accountable and pushing me, so to you all, I would like to say thank you, and I’m forever thankful.
"I may not be satisfied with my new body yet, but I’m learning to love her and care for her every day!
"If you’re like me and not seeing the results you want, DO NOT give up, your body is beautiful and magical!
Thank you to every single person who has helped me embrace and fall in love with my “mom bod”! 😉"
