Zoe Saldana Is Proud of Her Post-Baby Body: "It Pays Off to Work Hard"

Zoe Saldana has been very open and determined when it comes to trimming and toning her post-baby body after welcoming twin boys in November 2014, and her latest update reveals that she has successfully achieved her goal.

Posing in an old Guardians of the Galaxy catsuit, Saldana wrote on Instagram, "Holy S---! You guys, I had to share this, this is one of the old #guardiansofthegalaxy costumes that I wore back in 2013. After twins I can't believe I was able to slip into this. @marvel and @jamesgunn don't be mad, I'm not showing anything that hasn't been seen before... besides, aren't we designing new stuff?.... It pays off to work hard! I mean it mommies of the world, if I did it you can too."

After gaining an estimated 70 pounds while pregnant with her babies, the 37-year-old mother of two was on a mission to get her body back while maintaining a healthy attitude.

The Avatar beauty took to social media over the past year to post a slew of diet and fitness tips as well as videos of herself hitting the gym on her Facebook page, and, proving she's no different than any new mom, admitted that the process has been both "painful" and "frustrating."

"As you all know, we welcomed twin boys last November. Yes, by far, the most amazing experience of my life, but also a very challenging experience when it pertains to my body," Saldana, who is married to Marco Perego, wrote on social media earlier this year. "I'm sure moms across the world (and dads sometimes) can identify with what I'm about to say.

"Your body changes dramatically, inside and out. You grow in places you never knew you could, and you are tired beyond belief..." she continued. "Everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed...my body was really bent out of shape after the boys were born. Bouncing back feels impossible, but I know it is important as a woman, and now a mommy, to not give up."

So she didn't, and it clearly paid off.
