AceShowbiz - Tori Roloff has gone candid about her postpartum body. Three weeks after giving birth to daughter Lilah Ray, the "Little People, Big World" star opened up on social media about her struggles in embracing her post-baby figure.
Sharing her woe with her Instagram followers, the 28-year-old wrote a lengthy piece along with a happy picture of her with her two children. "I'm trying really hard to love my postpartum body," she began. "It's only been 3 weeks since growing and then birthing a human being, but it's hard."
The wife of Zach Roloff went on to list the challenges she is facing. "Having major abdominal surgery is difficult for me because I hate being restricted. I hate asking for help. I hate not being able to physically keep up with where my mental state is," she noted. "Plus there are jiggles in places that are honestly just hard to come to terms with."
In the post, Tori acknowledged that the condition is a "temporary" one. "I know my body will heal and I will be back where I want to be," she admitted, but could not help to add, "It's just the waiting that's hard."
Nonetheless, she still has encouraging words for "all those PP mamas out there." Urging them to love themselves hard, she advised, "We all have our days and that's okay. Our bodies are so insane and I've said it before- women are bad a**. I thank God everyday for the family he's given me. I'll be here continuing to try and practice what I preach and love myself through this phase."
This was not the first time Tori shared her trial over her second pregnancy. Back in early July, she has already shared her thought about self-image. "I have had a harder time accepting my body this go around. I've gotten bigger a lot faster than I did with Jackson and I've become a lot more insecure," she wrote at the time. "It's been hard to really enjoy this pregnancy because I've let my own body image issues get in the way."
"And I know I need to give this up to God right and be thankful for this gift-and I'm trying trust me," she continued before adding some wise words of her own. "But for all those women out there-pregnant or not- you need to hear this just like I do: you're beautiful, you're strong, and dang it love yourself no matter what."
