Melissa Joan Hart's mother Paula is progressing "quickly" after brain surgery two weeks ago to remove a benign tumor, the actress says.

"Every day, she is like a different person," Hart, 33, told PEOPLE at Sunday's A Time for Heroes Celebrity Carnival in Los Angeles. "It's amazing to see. It's a really fast recovery ... Everything worked out really well."

Hart credits her 53-year-old mom's strength with motherhood. "She's had seven kids, six of them with no drugs," says Hart. "She was so tough, and she's such a good healer. It's amazing to see. One day she can't walk, the next day she's running up and down the block."

Melissa Joan Hart Reveals Her Bikini Body

Looking at Melissa Joan Hart's new 113-lb. bikini body, it's hard to believe it was only last summer she felt "horrified" by the unflattering bathing suits shots taken of her at a Southern California beach.

"I still read blogs about me discussing how fat I've become," the former Sabrina, the Teenage Witch star tells PEOPLE in the new issue, available on newsstands Friday.

"Everyone still thinks I'm huge," says Hart, 33, whose post-pregnancy body was the subject of cruel Internet attacks after she gave birth to sons Mason, 3, and Braydon, 14 months, with husband, Course of Nature lead singer Mark Wilkerson, 32. "But I'm not anymore!"

Hart understands the confusion. After all, the public has grown accustomed to seeing celebs get back in their skinny jeans mere weeks after giving birth. "There are enormous pressures put on you in Hollywood," she says.

Her inspiration to finally get back in the best shape of her life? The women in her life, including her friend, actress Jaime Pressly, who has a son, Dezi, 2, as well as her own mom Paula, who gave birth to seven children "and is tiny!" Hart says. "I realized I didn't have to be heavy just because I have kids."

"It's a constant workout," the ex-Sabrina, the Teenage Witch star tells PEOPLE of taking care of her sons Mason, 3, and Braydon, 8 months.

That's why she's been able to stay post-pregnancy fit, she says.

"You don't have time to eat because you're chasing them all the time!" she said Friday at the Jonas Brothers launch of 77 Kids by American Eagle in Los Angeles. "You kind of lift them in the car seat, out of the car seat, in the highchair, out of the highchair."

Melissa Joan Hart has such a potty mouth. And that's a good thing!

The former Sabrina, the Teenage Witch star is ready to begin potty training her eldest son, Mason, 2. And, in cooperation with Pull-Ups training pants, she'll be keeping an online diary of the high-fives and (soggy) lows.

"You have to take what works for you and leave the rest behind."

With a new baby at home, Melissa Joan Hart says life has been crazy enough – and it'll only get more hectic when her musician husband hits the road.
