Bethenny Frankel — who famously squeezed into a size-4 swimsuit three weeks after having a baby — doesn't want to go overboard trying to lose more weight.

"I probably now have five pounds to lose, and I don't even know if I'll lose them!" she told at Pampers' Daddy Play Date Fathers Day celebration Thursday in NYC. "I like it."

Frankel, 39, was criticized by some for not eating enough during her pregnancy and setting unrealistic expectations for women.

Not so, she told Us.

"I did indulge!" said the new mom, who welcomed daughter Bryn in May. "I had cheesecake. I had a dessert every day, but I didn't go overboard. I think people go crazy and that’s why they gain so much weight. People just have to be reasonable: Food is not your best friend or your enemy."

Her post-baby diet these days?

"I’ve just been eating normally," she told Us. "You can't ever binge. If you don’t binge, you wont be overweight. I had a bagel today. I had a tuna sandwich and some chips. I'll have something good for dinner, but I don't eat ice cream and cake all day or whatever. I try to have good eating habits."
