'Ugly Betty' Star America Ferrera Doesn't Weigh Herself — Photos of Her Body Transformation

America Ferrera has experienced a tremendous body transformation over the years. Today, the actress is an inspiration to many, and here's a look into her journey.

Famous actress America Ferrera has been a lot of things over the years. From a Hollywood star to an activist, to a fitness inspiration, she has undoubtedly set a standard for many.

In 2018, sportswear company The North Face collaborated with the United States Girl Scouts to launch a global initiative called Move Mountains.

The project was launched to celebrate women and their inspiring stories, and to that end, Ferrera was appointed as a brand ambassador.

While speaking about her fitness, Ferrera explained that training for a triathlon was the most inspiring thing she did to change her relationship with her body.

However, the actress noted that she did not take up triathlon to change her body type or lose weight— it was more of a mental challenge.

Ferrera also said that being active helped her realize how strong she could be. The actress believes everyone needs that kind of strength.

At the time Move Mountains was initiated, Ferrera was expecting her first child with husband Piers Willams and stated that she would be sure to teach her unborn child the importance of living an active life.

Therefore, it came as no surprise when later that year, Ferrera explained that pregnancy made her feel powerful and healthier.

For her, it was a time to discover how much power she possessed, and that ultimately improved her relationship with her body.

The actress noted that she had learned to have a celebratory relationship with her body .

Following the birth of her son Sebastian, none of these changed for the actress, though post-pregnancy was a tad more challenging than she thought.

After having Sebastian, Ferrera's relationship with food took a dynamic turn because then, she became more sensitive to how whatever she ate made her feel.

Last October, Ferrera opened up about her journey to body positivity and how she became more comfortable with herself over the years.

The actress noted that she had learned to have a celebratory relationship with her body, instead of one that portrayed punishment.

During the 92nd Academy Awards in February this year, Ferrera showed up sporting a baby bump, and once again, the actress spoke about embracing her pregnancy body.

Three months after, Ferrera welcomed her second child, a daughter named Lucia Marisol Williams. Without a doubt, this actress will be a close-up role model to her kids as they navigate their journey through life.
