Hilary Duff Weighed 98 Pounds When She Was 17, Talks Being Proud Of Her Body After Baby Boy Luca

Hilary Duff is opening up about her body.

The 27-year-old singer shines on the cover of Health magazine this month and discussed how motherhood has given her a newfound confidence in her body. In the interview, Duff also admits to having some serious insecurity about her weight as a teen.

"I lost my baby weight from boxing, and I have this awesome trainer, Gabe. I was already there, but I definitely shed, like, 10 more pounds from doing two-a-days for two or three weeks, an hour each session," explained Duff. "I live in a cul-de-sac, but I have a big hill, so I would run the hill, then box in my cul-de-sac." 

"Oh my God, everyone was so hard on me because it took me a year and a half to get my body back! When I was 17, I weighed, like, 98 pounds," confessed the former "Lizzie McGuire" star, who revealed that she used to have an unhealthy concept of keeping in shape.

"I was totally obsessed with everything I put in my mouth. I was way too skinny. Not cute. And my body wasn't that healthy-my hands would cramp up a lot because I wasn't getting the nutrition I needed. That constant pressure of wanting something different than I had? I regret that," Duff told the magazine.

Now that she is older and a mother, Hilary is all about celebrating her body, which brought her two-year-old son Luca into the world.

"I feel like there was way too much time spent thinking about that," said Duff. "This is the body that I have. I have a very athletic build, and I am so proud of what my body has done for me. I had the best, healthiest, strongest pregnancy. And I feel good about myself. But I feel like I'm always in a 5-pound battle, because being 5 feet 2, everything is going to show on me!"
