"You see those headlines that say, 'I lost my baby weight in three months!' And I used to read that and I would think, why would you want to lose your baby weight in three months? Don't you need that? I was a nursing mom, so I needed that fat... I was just very patient and gentle with myself after I had my children," Lilly told USA Today.
The actor, who plays Hope van Dyne/Wasp in the upcoming film "Antman and The Wasp", said she did not feel the need to "attack" her body into getting back into shape.
"I realised my body was exactly the way my body was supposed to be during that period of my life. And I nursed my children, both of them, for nearly a year.
"So, after that I didn't attack my body, like, 'Now you're going to go back to where you were!' And I felt really good about two years! I felt like two years made sense to me," she said.
