Ok, Mimi!

Mariah Carey is having a pretty epic start to 2019, and if you don’t believe us, just check out these photos of her living her best life in a hot tub (and outside of it for photo opportunities), looking pretty svelte while enjoying such luxuries:

She posed in a sparkling pink bikini and looked amazing with her muscles, including those abs, flexed for the world to see. Who doesn’t love when Mariah is glowing (shout out to boyfriend Bryan Tanaka for that we presume…)?

While Carey hasn’t pinpointed what’s behind her leaner look, there were reports last year, including from Entertainment Tonight, that the 48-year-old had undergone gastric sleeve surgery.

Makes some sense, because last time we saw Carey at the gym, she was doing this:

A source told the publication that the alleged weight-loss surgery had allowed her to have a lot of success with her diet after struggling with it in the past.

“It has been hard for Mariah to get off the dieting roller coaster, but for now she seems very happy. She is focusing on new music and she is thrilled about her Vegas residency,” the source shared back in June.

The star went on to release her latest album, Caution, last year,  has been doing her Butterfly Returns residency in Las Vegas, and is shining from the inside out. She may not discuss the methods behind her weight loss, but she was open recently about one of her favorite beauty secrets, which could explain her amazing, glowing skin. “I bathe in milk,” she said in an interview with The Guardian last summer, adding, “sometimes I use milk as a beauty treatment. I don’t want to give away all my secrets.”
