SHANGHAI - The myth that women can't regain their figures after having children has been busted by a Shanghainese mother of four.
A beautiful and youthful mother has shocked netizens when it was revealed that she is 40 years old.
The Shanghainese woman is known as Make Mama ("Ma-ke") to her fans and followers.
Mark is her youngest child's name, so she decided to used it as her online moniker.
Make Mama currently runs a fitness and lifestyle blog where she shares health and food tips to get and maintain the body she has now.
In her blog, she details her adventures around the world where she participates in running events.
Also a foodie, Make Mama also shows how she indulges in delicious food and even posted a photo of her enjoying fried dough fritters at McDonald's.
According to her blog and news reports, Make Mama weighed around 70kg at her heaviest.
She wrote how after having her fourth kid, she wasn't motivated to get back in shape.
However, Make Mama started to notice the health issues she had when she was overweight.
She had trouble with her bowels, her temper was bad, and she kept having illnesses that kept coming back.
Make Mama also noticed that she had an unpleasant body odour and started to have agoraphobia (fear of going public places).
Other than these issues, she was also embarrassed when she had trouble buying clothes her size (XXL) and her skin looked awful.
Tired of feeling hatred for her body, she decided to make a change.
She said she didn't want to live with those conditions for the rest of her life.
Using her blog to detail her exercise and beauty regime, she started to gain a following.
Netizens are inspired by how a 40-year-old mother of four could regain back her youth and figure, and look like a 20-year-old woman.
