Tia Mowry is extremely proud of her latest accomplishment, a total body transformation. The Sister, Sister alum shared on Tuesday that she successfully dropped 68 pounds.
Posting a mirror selfie to Instagram, the 42-year-old actress is seen flashing a pleased expression as she strikes a triumphant pose in denim cutoff shorts and a fitted sweater.
“I’ve lost to date 68 pounds since giving birth to my daughter,” Mowry penned in the honest caption. “I’m very proud that I did it my way and in my time.”
Mowry welcomed her second child, a daughter named Cairo, alongside husband Cory Hardrict in 2018.
As for why she opted to shed the baby weight on her own schedule, the actress furthered, “I didn’t feel rushed to snap back. I enjoyed breast feeding and spending quality time with #cairo and my son #cree.”
Now, Mowry is hoping her post will inspire other moms to embrace their bodies and not feel ashamed of their pregnancy weight.
“To all the women who are feeling pressured after birth. Do YOU!,” The Twitches star encouraged. “Do what makes YOU proud and do it in YOUR time. Not anyone else’s.”
That selfie wasn’t the only inspirational message Mowry had for new mothers on Tuesday. Later on her Instagram stories, the Anser supplement mogul shared a candid message to those struggling with breastfeeding.
“To all the mothers who couldn’t breastfeed, don’t beat yourself up,” Mowry implored while posting a photo of her feeding Cairo. “The most important thing is that your baby is fed, protected and loved.”
The image goes on to reveal that “Breastfeeding my son Cree was very challenging. I just didn’t have enough milk and that was okay,” Mowry assured, later revealing that she did have success with it after her daughter was born.
