Victoria Beckham, a former Spice Girl, became ''obsessed'' with exercising after giving birth to daughter Harper Seven and went running six days a week to get back into shape, according to

She says she became ''obsessed'' with exercising after having the child last July.

The fashion designer and her husband, soccer star David Beckham, have four children: Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, Cruz, six, and eight-month-old Harper. They began an intense fitness regime that included running six days a week to get back into shape so quickly after giving birth to the couple's daughter last July.

She said: ''I worked out a lot. I ran a lot. I did it six days a week. I become quite obsessive when I get into something.''

The Spice Girls were an overnight sensation, but their star blazed out and disappeared in a few short years. Posh Spice was her stage name, but Victoria Beckham did not let the fall from glory as a Spice Girl slow her down. Since the Spice Girls’ group dissolved, she has had a solo pop music career, scoring four UK Top 10 singles. Her first single to be released, Out of Your Mind, reached Number 2 in the UK Singles Chart and is her highest chart entry to date. During her solo career, she has been signed to Virgin Records and Telstar Records.

She is married to the internationally famous soccer star and celebrity David Beckham, and they both pursue careers that have made them both wealthy in their own right.

Victoria has also launched herself in British television. She has made five official documentaries. The first in January 2000, was called Victoria's Secrets, a program shown in the UK. It involved Beckham being followed by cameras while also discussing and interviewing other British celebrities, such as Elton John. The second, Being Victoria Beckham, was broadcast in March 2002 and saw Beckham discussing her career as a solo artist with the release of her first album, and also showed her at various photo shoots and recording sessions. The documentary attracted a strong audience of 8.83 million. Unlike her internationally famous husband, Victoria’s audience is mainly in the United Kingdom, but it has proven to be a lucrative market for her.

Some view her as more of a fashion icon than a performer. She made a guest appearance on the catwalk for Maria Grachvogel in 2000 marking her debut as a model at London Fashion Week. And she was also chosen as British ambassador for Dolce and Gabbana, and was briefly the face of Rocawear. In 2003, Victoria designed a limited-edition fashion line for Rock and Republic called VB Rocks consisting mainly of jeans for high end market retailing at an eye popping $300 each in the United States. Michael Ball the fashion mogul in Los Angeles commented, "She not only understands fashion and trends but has been a trend-setter and fashion icon for years."

Have women become too obssessed with body image? Do you consider exercising six days a week obssessive?
