Tia Mowry Shows off Her Fit Figure in Shorts after Losing Weight — See Her Powerful Message
Tia Mowry is showing off her figure after losing weight following the birth of her daughter, and she has a powerful message for new mothers. Here is what she had to say.
Tia Mowry is showing off her figure after going on a weight loss journey following the birth of her daughter Cairo last year.
The star took to Instagram to share a mirror selfie wearing a gray turtle neck sweater and denim shorts, and she looks terrific.
The mother of two had a special message for new mothers, opening up to them about the pressure they face to "snapback" after giving birth.
After Mowry was fat-shamed during and after her pregnancy, she wanted to empower women and remind them that they should do things in their time. She said:
"I’m very proud that I did it my way and in my time. I didn’t feel rushed to snap back. I enjoyed breastfeeding and spending quality time with #cairo and my son #cree."
Last year, Mowry spoke about her weight loss journey and revealed that she had faced criticism after she did not lose the weight as fast as people thought she should have.
However, she said that it was not about looking great, adding that if it took a while to get to her goal weight, then so be it.
Seventeen months postpartum, Mowry talked about the fat-shaming she faced.
Mowry often speaks about body positivity, revealing that during her pregnancy, she had suffered from diastasis recti, a condition that causes the abs to separate.
The "Sister, Sister" star shared the news with a photo posted six months after giving birth to her daughter and revealed that it was the cause of her "little pouch." She added:
"Shining a spotlight on this because I had never heard of it. Have to go hard with core work to restore. We will work on that later :) "
She revealed that she had chosen to document her journey to show others that it was ok to go at your own pace and not fold to societal pressure.
This is not the first time that female celebrities have faced unreasonable pressures to lose weight after giving birth.
After her second child, Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram opening up about her journey, joking that she was 20 pounds heavier than before getting pregnant as she loves food too much.
