Being a former The Biggest Loser trainer, Tiffiny Hall is very used to seeing fast weight-loss and dramatic transformations. However, when it comes to her body, the kick-butt trainer is taking it slow, but that doesn't mean she isn't seeing results.
In fact, since she and her comedian husband Ed Kavalee welcomed their son Arnold Martin Kavalee in September last year, Tiffiny has shed 21 kilograms.
"I put on 30kg, I was sick the whole time right up until my last contraction and all I wanted was sausage rolls," Tiffiny told news.com.au.

The Gladiator star, famous for her washboard abs says her pregnancy didn't go to plan, but was grateful her body delivered her a healthy baby.
Since giving birth, Tiffiny has taken to social media with inspiring messages of self-love and body confidence, reminding women that there is no rush to 'bounce back' to their pre-pregnancy bodies.
"I could be worrying about my body and feeling pressure to bounce back or… I could just love my body because it is the strongest it's ever been after labour and delivering a child," the creator of workout program Tiff XO wrote on Instagram.
Tiffiny's pre-pregnancy body weighed 53 kilograms and fit a size 6. The weight she gained was a shock for the fitness guru, but what was more shocking was how weak her body became when she was too unwell during pregnancy to continue to work out.
"I couldn't do a full squat. I had to use the couch. The fact that I couldn't do a push up…It's so strange. My body collapsed because my core was so weak," Tiffiny recalls of her return to a fitness regime.

Tiffiny workouts from home for 20 minutes a day, six days a week, supplemented by regular walks with bub Arnold in his pram. She also credits her weight-loss to breastfeeding: "your body is working very quickly," she said.
And while dropping 21 kilograms in four months may sound like a lot to some, Tiffiny says she's been gentle on her body and although she has lost weight, she's still yet to rebuild the muscle and incredible strength she's famous for.
But that will have to wait, because for now, she has a more important job, feeding her son.
"I didn't want to affect my milk supply by dieting or exercising too hard because breastfeeding was my biggest priority. I did notice if I went too hard, it did affect my milk supply," she told news.com.au.

The mum-of-one revealed despite her difficult pregnancy she'd love to expand her family and have more children and although she says she still has a long way to go to get back to her peak physical form (which we must remember, is far greater than the average woman's) there is more important things to worry about right now.
"I may never get back to my size six hips and my washboard abs, but I'm comfortable with that."
Preach, Tiff!
