“Many women feel the need to #snapback right away after they deliver,” the actress continued. “That was never the goal for me. I was called #fat during my #pregnancy and I was called #fat after my #pregnancy.”
“Why do we do this to each other?” she asked. “Instead of #love one another other? I will never understand that. I intentionally documented my journey and became vulnerable to show #women that it’s okay to go at your own pace, it is okay to love yourself no matter where you are in your journey.”
“Do not fold to societal pressures,” the Sister, Sister star urged her followers and fellow new moms. “After hard work with just diet and exercise, today I’m closer to my goal. Do I have loose skin and stretch marks? YES. Guess what?? I LOVE all me and I want you to love all of you too.”
Tia and husband Cory Hardict welcomed their daughter Cairo in May 2018. The two are also parents to 8-year-old son Cree.
“I've learned not to say anything that my family can't defend themselves against in the moment if they're not here,” Tamera explained. “It’s just respect.
