Fitness trainer Tiffiny Hall has revealed how she transformed her body after giving birth to her son.
The Australian health expert and former Biggest Loser coach, 35, gained 30kg during her pregnancy with son Arnold in 2017.
The mother-of-one shared two candid snaps on Instagram showing how she looked at eight weeks post-partum and at nine months after birth.
She said ‘bouncing forward’ allowed her to commit to a regime of regular workouts.
‘From the outset, I want to tell you that I was no less happy in picture one because my body was bigger or different,’ she wrote on the post.

Documenting the journey: Complications during pregnancy meant Tiffiny had to put exercise on hold, a situation which led to her gaining 30 kg
‘The only difference between these two pics is the side effect of doing what I love: moving and helping others to move.’
She told her 200,000 followers the first photo at eight weeks post partum showed the reality of being a new mum: ‘breastfeeding, busy and sleep-deprived’.
‘I’m five sizes bigger than my pre-Arnold body – but in this moment I don’t care. I couldn’t be more proud of my body for giving me my son,’ Tiffiny said.
Tiffiny said she took the pressure off feeling as if she had to return to her pre-pregnancy size by being ‘proud of my body for giving me my son’
‘It was day one back at work (I’d been working from home, but this was my first commitment that required leaving the house – any new mum knows this is a big deal!) and Arnold was with me in the studio.’
What makes the snap memorable was it marked the first day Tiffiny was able to return to exercise, something she could only manage for a few moments at a time.
‘I could only manage five minutes, with low-impact modifications, but my smile says it all! I got it in,’ she said.
Despite the fact Tiffiny could only manage five minutes of exercise at a time when she first started excising after giving birth, she soon built this up to 20 minutes a day
At the start of her journey, Tiffiny previously recalled she was too weak to even complete one push up on her knees.
‘Picture two is nine months after having Arnold. I am shooting new workout videos for my TIFFXO community,’ she said on the Instagram post.
‘I built on that five-minute workout and I’m feeling fit and strong again.’
‘I’m still breastfeeding, I’ve dropped a couple of sizes and I’m feeling awesome. It took me months!’
The inspirational fitness guru said she ‘never wanted to bounce back, I wanted to bounce forward’
As well as making fitness a priority, the health expert said she choosing to reframe her ideas about ‘bouncing back’ made losing weight and exercising a more positive experience.
‘I never wanted to bounce back, I wanted to bounce forward,’ she said.
‘A new mindset of appreciation has helped me take the pressure off how I look and put focus on the power of my body… and nailing that jab.’

Since sharing the photos to Instagram, nearly 10,000 people have liked the post and hundreds more have left comments thanking her for her inspiring words.
‘Thank you for your honesty,’ one person wrote.
‘After my first born I struggled accepting my body changed and then I saw how you where embracing it and it made me change my outlook.
‘Without you I don’t think I would have got my body back or feel great about just being me.’
While another added: You are dead set legend! You have inspired me so much… from learning meditation, listening to my body and of course nailing that power jab!’
