90 Day Fiance: Loren Opens Up About Her Struggle With Postpartum Depression

90 Day Fiance star Loren has been open about her every part of her journey through motherhood since baby Shai was born. It has been about 15 weeks since she gave birth and the reality TV star admitted that things haven’t been easy. 

She tries to learn something with every experience and stays positive as much as possible. In fact, the couple has also discussed the possibility of having another child sometime soon. But she did share her postpartum struggles. Let’s take a look.

90 Day Fiance: Loren Shares Her Postpartum Struggles With Fans

Most of what Loren posts reflect positivity. This makes fans feel that she hasn’t been struggling with any kind of postpartum depression. However, this is far from the truth. Loren revealed that body dysmorphia is something she had been struggling with for a really long time. So, she doesn’t see exactly what others see differently.

More about this photo… I’m 15 weeks postpartum (crazy how time flies by!) I’m asked all the time if I struggle with postpartum depression because I’m always so happy and positive and the truth is 💯 YES! I’ve battled body dysmorphia for as long as I can remember… meaning what you see and what I see are 2 totally different things. Add in my Tourette syndrome (tics), anxiety, OCD, hatred for going to the gym and coping with the fact that Shai is getting so big so fast, it’s a recipe for disaster. Do I cry behind closed doors? ABSOLUTELY! A lot. Am I ashamed with how I look sometimes? TOTALLY (thanks body dysmorphia). Do I have days where I choose to sit instead of go to the gym? More often than not! BUT THE TRUTH IS: I am not alone feeling like this and I am not the only one, I just choose to bring light to it because another truth is, we are beautiful just the way we are and we need to be reminded of it!! This body grew, carried and birthed a beautiful baby boy and hopefully more to come sooner than later. Whether you’re going through postpartum like I am, or not, just remember it’s OK to cry. It’s ok to have your moments of feeling bad but it’s more important to remind yourself YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!! And even if you don’t go to the gym to do hardcore workouts, put on your sneakers, go for a walk and be proud of yourself because YOU did it! When I have my down moments, I tell myself “I put the ‘ME’ in awesome!” It helps motivate me! And you should tell yourself that too! (PS I’m in the process of trademarking that! 🤣) **Tag someone who needs to hear this and remind them they are beautiful!!** #truth #thisisme #lovewhoyouare #nobullshit

Anxiety, Tourette syndrome, and OCD are some of the conditions that make matters worse. Plus, she hates going to the gym which further delays shedding the baby weight. With Shai and his needs growing along with everything that has been going on with Loren, she calls her situation a recipe for disaster. 

90 Day Fiance: This is How Loren Feels About Her Post Baby Body

Loren stated that sometimes she is ashamed of how she looks. In fact, the reality TV star also revealed that she finds herself crying at times. Even though she thinks about hitting the gym sometimes, she finds herself sitting all day long. However, Loren never holds back to update fans on her progress. 

She is working to lose the baby weight but in her own way. But she did state that she has been dealing a lot with body image issues. Loren has made it clear that even though she might be having a rough day, that doesn’t stop her from putting a positive spin on it.
