Looking good, Katherine Heigl! The blonde beauty gave birth to her son, Joshua Jr., a little more than a year ago, and now she's being an inspiration to new moms everywhere by showing off her impressive post-baby weight loss on social media.

The 39-year-old actress took to Instagram to share her body progression with her 2.1 million followers. "It’s been almost 14 months since Joshua Jr. was born and it has taken me about that long to really get back in shape. The first pic was taken one month after he was born. The second pic was taken almost a full year later and the last pic was taken this weekend. I wish I had a few from in between the first and second so you could really see how slow my progress was but alas... I was busy covering it all up those months, not posing in my unders!" she began in the caption.

"Anyway, I have a beach vacation coming up, a new job I start filming in April, and my deep desire to feel fit, strong, and sexy propelling me forward the last two months to finally lose the last of my baby weight and do a deep dive search for the ab muscles I knew were buried under that belly somewhere!" Katherine continued. "I was wholly and totally inspired by Miss @rachparcell and the before and after pics she shared after taking the #BBG challenge. I had never heard of it but she looked so damn great (she had her baby just a few months before me) that I had to check it out. I found a fantastic app called #Sweat that features several different #BBG programs you can choose from and makes it incredibly easy to do anywhere, which for me means in my bedroom at home!"

She concluded, "I won’t lie, the workouts are real ass kickers but the progress I’ve made in only five short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going! I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs and wasn’t forced by work to snap back into shape but it is time to make the strength, fitness, and overall health of my body a priority and I am so grateful that @rachparcell shared her story and got this mama motivated!"

Katherine previously welcomed Joshua Jr. in late December 2016 with husband Josh Kelley. She's also a mom to two adopted daughters, Nancy and Adalaide. The former Grey's Anatomy star has been vocal about her post-baby weight loss in the past via her personal blog, ThoseHeavenlyDays.com. We love how relatable she is!
