Tia Mowry just revealed her 68-pound weight loss on Instagram.
She gave birth to her second child, Cairo, two years ago.
The actress says she took her time losing the weight and didn't feel rushed to "snap back."
Tia Mowry welcomed her second child, daughter Cairo, two years ago. And now, she’s opening up about how she slowly lost a bunch of weight from her pregnancy.
“I’ve lost to date 68 pounds since giving birth to my daughter,” Tia wrote in a new Instagram post alongside a pic of herself in cut-off jeans and a turtleneck sweater. “I’m very proud that I did it my way and in my time. I didn’t feel rushed to snap back.”
Tia also said she “enjoyed breastfeeding” and “spending quality time” with Cairo and her son Cree, 11. She wrapped up on this inspirational note: “To all the women who are feeling pressured after birth. Do YOU! Do what makes YOU proud and do it in YOUR time. Not anyone else’s. ❤️.”
Tia’s famous friends showed up in the comments to cheer her on. “Such a babe!!!! ❤️ Love this and you and the hard work on YOUR time ✨,” wrote Daphne Oz. “Great job, mama! 💕👏🏽” said Vanessa Bryant.

This isn’t the first time Tia has spoken out about the pressure to snap back after having a baby. Last October, she shared a pic of herself doing yoga on Instagram, and had some choice words for people who pressure postpartum women into losing weight quickly.
“I was called fat during my pregnancy and I was called fat after my pregnancy,” she wrote. “Why do we do this to each other? Instead of love one another other? I will never understand that.”
Checking in. #17months post pregnant. I did it my way and in my time. Many women feel the need to #snapback right away after they deliver. 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? 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. 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. #women #rock Workout fit- @kellyrowland @fabletics

Tia said at the time that she’s “intentionally” being open about her journey “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.”
Tia has shared little updates on her fitness journey here and there on Instagram. In December, she posted a video of herself doing lunges and Pilates exercises to Beyonce’s “Who Runs the World.” She’s also repeatedly stressed in her posts that “self care isn’t selfish.”
