Vlogger Kryz Uy said she is not in a rush to get back in shape after giving birth to her first child, Scott Knoa.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, August 8, the first-time mom shared that she has been receiving comments from other mothers saying they are "jealous" of how seemingly fast she has bounced back into shape.
"Here’s my reply--honest and simple. My body has chaaaanged!" she said.
both are me, and i love my body 💜 — a lot of you always message me saying you’re jealous of my post partum body, or comment asking if i even gave birth. here’s my reply- honest and simple. my body has chaaaanged! I’m currently 10 lbs heavier, and a lot softer (more huggable i like to say). Of course this doesn’t always show in photos- because photos only show so much. And while I’m slowly (really slowly) working on getting my body back (obviously i wanna look fit again), it’s not a priority and it definitely won’t take over time and effort I’d rather spend with Scottie. (also, for some reason, donuts and cookies are extra yummy when breastfeeding lol- I make room for happiness!) So to all you mamas struggling with body issues- this one is for you. Take your time. Appreciate your body and all it’s done for you and your baby. Suck it in, but also, let it out! 🤍

According to Kryz, though she is slowly working on getting back her fit body, "it is not a priority and it definitely won’t take over time and effort I’d rather spend with Scottie."
"Also, for some reason, donuts and cookies are extra yummy when breastfeeding," she said, before adding, "I make room for happiness!"
Kryz went on to give her advice to other mothers who are struggling with body issues.
"Take your time. Appreciate your body and all it’s done for you and your baby," she said.
"Suck it in, but also, let it out!" she added.
Kryz's newborn son is her first child with her husband, model-entrepreneur Slater Young, who is known to many as the 2012 winner of the ABS-CBN reality show "Pinoy Big Brother."
She gave birth to her baby boy last June, or six months after the couple announced via her vlog that they are welcoming a new addition to their family.
Kryz and Slater tied the knot in Cebu in February 2019.
