Peta Murgatroyd is confident with her post-baby body and not afraid to show it.

The new mom, who gave birth her son Shai on January 4 (yes, just over two weeks ago!), flaunted her tummy in an Instagram selfie after a few days of working out at the gym. The 30-year-old pro dancer wore just a sports bra and folded down black dress in the body positive photo. In the lengthy caption of the image Murgatroyd wrote, “Love thy self. #Day17 postpartum. I think I’m doing ok…and I’m actually fine with the rate at which my body is shrinking back. After two days back at the gym I’m feeling like the old Peta again. I definitely don’t have my six pack, and I still have excess skin and rolls on my belly, however I feel good.” Looking good, girl, too!

Love thy self ❤ #Day17 postpartum. I think I'm doing ok….and I'm actually fine with the rate at which my body is shrinking back. After 2 days back at the gym I'm feeling like the old Peta again. I definitely don't have my 6 pack, and I still have excess skin and rolls on my belly, however I feel good. After all, slow and steady wins the race! I knew I needed to get back into the gym for my own sanity, but I also remind myself (as does Maks 😉) that I still need to take it easy. I cannot jump yet and still can't run a mile, but the exercises I've planned out are a good start. Honestly, the hardest part for me is getting my core strength back. Day 1 I couldn't do a sit up, here's day 17 and I'm doing 70+ 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 Ladies, we all have to start somewhere…being an athlete I pride myself on having a lean, strong physique, so believe me this has been a challenge to work through, but as long as you have a loving support network around you, you will be fine ❤ #theresnothinglikehardwork

This is also not the first time that the Dancing With the Stars winner has been open on social media about her post-birth body transformation, having shared a selfie of herself just eight days after giving birth to her baby boy. In the postpartum photo, Murgatroyd wrote that she “left the hospital looking five months pregnant.” Check out her other candid Instagram photo below.
