Raising Heights with Zach & Tori

  • Our Struggles with Body Image

    13 JUN 2024 · Pregnancy and postpartum experiences are a blessing… but that doesn’t mean they’re easy. Women get to experience this amazing miracle of creating life, but they’re also faced with a ton of challenges along the way.  Welcome back to Raising Heights with Zach and Tori Roloff. In this episode, Tori shares a glimpse into her own postpartum journey, from the discomfort of being in her own body to coming to terms with the fact that her high school jeans would never fit again — and that’s alright. In a world where it seems like women are constantly comparing themselves to others, Tori and Zach shed some light on their experiences.  Listen in as we discuss:  ➡️ Struggling with the balance between appreciating the beautiful gift of pregnancy and struggling with body image ➡️ The importance of understanding and respecting that everyone’s experiences (and bodies) are different ➡️ Surgery, doing the work, and finding the right option for you  ➡️ Coming to terms with your new body, and learning to love the imperfections — even in the age of Instagram
