‘It’s not easy’: Tiff Hall breaks down over ‘new body’

The fitness guru has been candid about her postpartum struggle, admitting that “it’s not easy” in a raucous and candid video shared with fans.

Tiffiny Hall burst into tears, describing the “pressure” she feels after giving birth, saying, “It’s not easy”.

The fitness expert recently welcomed daughter Vada, her second child with husband Ed Kavalee† She is also mother to son Arnold, 4.

In an emotional video posted, the 37-year-old described looking at her “new body” and finding it hard to accept that it “took time” to recover.

“It’s not easy,” she began in an Instagram Stories shared Friday.

“I stand in front of my mirror looking at my new body with my big bump, Vada’s house, and it’s really hard to accept that it’s going to take time.”

As the tears began to fall, Tiff explained that she was feeling “super emotional” but acknowledged that “healing takes time.”

“It also depends on what birth you had,” she added.

“I’ve got a few stitches and stuff and it’s all a bit painful.

“But she’s absolutely beautiful. She’s worth it.”

Tiff – a former Biggest Loser coach – also shared a powerful video of her postpartum body to 228,000 followers, along with the hashtag “#bounceforward”.

“1 week old after giving birth with Vada,” she captioned the short clip that transitioned from her heavily pregnant baby bump to her tummy a week after giving birth, as she cradled the newborn Vada in her arms.

Tiff coined the term “bounce forward” after having son Arnold in 2017 to raise awareness of the social pressures placed on mothers to “bounce back” after giving birth.

Since having Vada on May 30, she has spoken vocally about sharing her struggles, most recently of the “4th trimester,” the name given to the first few months after giving birth.

“Home from the hospital with Vada. Juggling recovery after childbirth, nurturing the relationship between siblings so that no one feels left out, lack of sleep and nutrition,” she wrote on Sunday.

“Let the 4th trimester begin. The laundry can wait! Any tips?”

Fans praised the fitness guru — who owns fitness app MYTXO — and thanked the star for being “raw” and “real” with them.

“Love the raw, authenticity of this photo, you are a fantastic Tiff,” one wrote.

“So nice to see how it really is, thanks for sharing with us,” said another.

“So beautiful, thank you for sharing the real authentic truth,” added someone else.

The former Biggest Loser coach gained 30kg during her first pregnancy and felt overwhelmed with the expectation that she would “spring back” within weeks of her son’s arrival.

But she refused to listen to the sound and instead chose to “take her time” – later went on to create a new program on her fitness app MYTXO, designed especially for mothers.

“To be honest, I didn’t want to bounce back after having a baby,” Tiff told news.com.au in March 2019.

“Crash diet and the damage it can do to the body and emotional and mental well-being is not good for new mothers.”

Tiff explained that she took it “very slow” after giving birth, which was not what people expected from the fitness expert.

“It could have hurt my business because it changed my image and all that. But I didn’t care. I wanted to rehabilitate my body after the trauma of birth,” she said.

“It was never about the bikini body for me.”

Tiff also gave a TEDx lecture in Sydney on the “bouncing forward” in February 2019 and is committed to helping women feel confident and strong.

Last month, Tiff posed with her baby bump on the front of women’s health, photographed when she was 26 weeks pregnant. At the time, Tiff said she felt “honored and empowered to be the first pregnant woman to ever grace a @womenshealthaus magazine cover”, writing that it was once “taboo to show your belly”.

“Over my 20 years of experience in the health and fitness industry, I’ve seen it evolve into a landscape that now embraces both the beauty of pregnancy and postpartum bodies,” she wrote on Instagram.

“It was once taboo to show your belly in tight clothes – let alone a bare belly – or even like I’ve done… working out and staying active during pregnancy.

“I am proud of my strong pregnant body and believe that a woman’s bulge and ever-changing body should be celebrated in all its glory at every shape, size and stage of life.”

she is too living with a long-term illness after revealing she was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) — a blood pressure disorder that, in her case, is genetic — last April.

“This was hard to accept and honestly it felt like a low point at times,” she explained at the time.

“While I remain positive, the recovery is difficult and I will take a break for a while to get better again. This is one of the hardest decisions, but I have to practice what I am learning… and hopefully I’ll be back.”
