“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!” Heigl wrote alongside the collage of greyscale selfies.

The “27 Dresses” actor said she was grateful to fashion blogger Rach Parcell, who inspired her to share her “before and after pics”.

She said she is blessed to have enough time on her hands to gradually work on her body and not force it “to snap back into shape”.

“I won’t lie, the workouts are real a** kickers but the progress I’ve made in only five short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going!” Heigl added an upcoming beach vacation and a new project which she starts shooting in April drove her to get back into shape and be healthy.
