Beyonce in Shape April 2013: I Work Hard to Stay Fit

Showing off her post-baby bod with a few killer poses, Beyonce Knowles scored a feature in the April 2013 issue of Shape magazine.

After her flirtatious photoshoot, the 31-year-old performer revealed how she lost nearly 57 pounds after giving birth to baby Blue Ivy.

“I didn”t have a lot of time to lose the weight, because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again,” B explained during her behind-the-scenes shoot.

I”m not a person that is naturally very thin. I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape.

The Single Ladies songstress added that women should embrace their personal body shape and not dote on the image media outlets portray.

“Not everyone is supposed to be the same. Be healthy and take care of yourself, but be happy with the beautiful things that make you, you, Beyonce explains.
