Three months after giving birth to her firstborn, Baby Alianna Sky, on July 17, 2017, Maricar de Mesa’s weight was 110 pounds.
Interestingly, she was slimmer when she got pregnant,
"My weight dropped from 104 pounds...” she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an exchange of messages via Instagram.
As her pregnancy progressed, she “gained 20 pounds,” and hopes to go back to her original weight as soon as her wounds are healed.

The 37-year-old actress wrote, "I had a C section delivery, so I still am taking my time before fully going back to my regular workout routine.
"I walk on the treadmill for now, and do some body weight exercises.”
With regard to food, she eliminated rice from her meals.
"I have also been slowly going back to my regular diet, my main source of carbs is quinoa.
"I also eat a lot of vegetables."
In October, she also started getting "Viora treatment from Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics."
According to the clinic’s website, this "non-invasive liposuction is a skin tightening procedure which makes use of radio frequency (RF) to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the body.
"This, in turn, tightens and firms the skin from deep within resulting in a more youthful appearance.”
It takes 15 to 25 minutes, and six to eight sessions.
Maricar added, "It helps reduce the extra inches on my waist and also tightens the skin.
"It also stimulates the production of collagen.”
The latter is partly responsible for Maricar’s flawless tummy.
She remarked, "I am lucky enough not to have stretch marks."
