Drew looked radiant in her all-gold outfit 

She praised her personal trainer, Marnie Alton, for motivating her to better her body inside and out, but was also quick to remind her followers not to compare themselves to others.

"I go up and I go down," she said of her weight. "The rollercoaster of my body is a challenging, but beautiful ride. I made two kids. The single most important purpose for me being on this planet is for them! It is a true miracle I was able to have these two girls. So whatever the aftermath on my body, well bring it on!"


Drew credits her friend and trainer Marnie Alton for her body transformation 

"That said, there have been times I have stood in my closet and just cried. Hated getting dressed. Didn’t feel good! It takes so much for me to look decent."

She added: "I have to eat just right and work my ass off! I cannot fight the fact that I have the propensity to be the Pillsbury dough boy! (Now all I can think about is crescent rolls). So DON’T be fooled by what you see when people are thin right after baby. Don’t compare yourself to the magazines and the red carpets.

"If I looked decent on anything I have done since I had my two kids, I have clawed my way there. You can too!"
