has been one of the hottest gals in showbiz
for decades, so putting on baby weight while pregnant with twins Monroe and Moroccan last year was a "really difficult time," as she puts it. But, the 41-year-old is proud to announce she's already lost 65 pounds. Mariah Carey (Getty)
Carey steered clear of the cameras while pregnant, and after she delivered in April, and slowly but surely she's resurfaced. Just yesterday she tweeted a picture of her slender self in a teal track suit while running with four dogs. The singer wrote "jogging puppy style" under the pic, which shows her smiling -- and precariously entwined in all four leashes.
A few weeks before that, she posted a picture of herself wading in the ocean in a sexy one-piece bathing suit. And the paparazzi spotted her out and about in New York City in July, though she has yet to walk the red carpet.
The MTV Video Music Awards are this weekend and we're hoping she makes an appearance. It would be the perfect time for Mimi to throw on a pretty dress and pose like a hot Hollywood mom for the cameras -- now that she's not worried about her "big" feet.
Carey said in a post-baby interview
: "I'm kind of proud of myself. I really am -- sorry, pregnant with twins is different than anything! [People] were always saying to me, 'Oh, but it's all worth it!' Yeah, but it's easy to say when you're not the one whose feet are this big!"
