"I want to blame so bad COVID and being in Arizona with a lot of heat that I didn’t get to work out like I used to. But no. I indulged in pizza quite a bit especially towards the end and baked goods."
Total Bella's Nikki continued,
"I have to take full accountability, so I am now in a journey to lose 18 pounds, but in the healthiest way possible because I’m breastfeeding obviously, and giving my son the most amazing nutrition is No. 1, so there’s going to be no crash-diets, no starving myself."
"It's gonna be bringing workout back in and healthy nutrition, which I have been doing. Of course, I cheat here and there; I'm normal."
Prior to her Instagram post, Nikki also shared a story where she revealed she was afraid to show her body on social media.

The former WWE wrestler said,
"This was really hard to do but I felt like it was the right thing to do because I feel like sometimes on social media and with people sometimes in the spotlight we just truly don't showcase how hard postpartum can be and the journey of getting your body back."
