    Ashley Tisdale admitted she ‘still’ doesn’t feel ‘comfortable’ in her skin following the birth of her daughter Jupiter in March.

    The High School Musical star, 35, opened up about her postpartum body emotions in a new post for her site Frenshe, titled Getting Real About My Body After Baby.

    There, Ashley wrote about social media’s effect on self-image, remarking: ‘There are so many models and influencers that I’ve compared my own personal journey in “bouncing back” to…and then, I’m like wait they just had a baby and they look like that??’

    Unashamed, Ashley teamed her post with an unfiltered mirror selfie showing her body three months after giving birth.

    Though Tisdale was quick to recognize how apps like Instagram ‘really f*** with your head,’ she said the comparisons were still taking a toll on her self-esteem.

    ‘I’ve worked my butt off,’ she explained. ‘Whether it’s hiking, Pilates, riding on my Peloton, and yet, I still don’t feel comfortable in my body.’

    ‘Yes, I started to fit into some jeans again, but not the size I was wearing before. Everyone keeps saying that it takes time—it takes time growing the baby and it takes time losing the baby weight. And you know what? That’s the truth.’

    Ashley recalled a recent epiphany she had while spending time with two other new moms.

    ‘[They were] saying how great I looked and that they wished they could fit into jeans,’ she recalled.

    ‘Here they were thinking that I looked great and yet I’m at home looking in the mirror thinking I could look better. That’s when I realized we can’t compare our bodies to each other.’

    Tisdale reminded readers how diverse different moms’ experiences are, writing: ‘Everyone is going to have a different journey and it’s important to not communicate negative feelings towards our own bodies. 

    ‘Thoughts like “you’re not good enough, you could look better” have to stop! And they especially need to stop when realizing that your body just created and gave life to another human being.’ 

    ‘The bottom line: be kind to yourself and fill yourself up with love,’ she continued. 

    ‘It’s okay to set a goal and be inspired by others, but we should all truly love ourselves and our bodies in every season. 

    ‘It’s easier said than done and I know there have been stages in my pregnancy where I have felt uncomfortable. 

    ‘I’m still dealing with plantar fasciitis, but even I’m working on not comparing myself to others and their post-baby journeys. Love yourself first!’

    Love yourself: Tisdale reminded readers how diverse different moms' experiences are, writing:'Everyone is going to have a different journey and it’s important to not communicate negative feelings towards our own bodies'

    Ashley and husband Christopher French welcomed daughter Jupiter Iris French on March 23rd and announced her arrival with a heart-melting black-and-white snap of her tiny hand days later.

    In an interview with Forbes, Ashley gushed about life with her newborn baby.

    ‘Life is great. I mean, she’s so cute,’ the High School Musical star told the magazine. ‘It’s so wild she’s finally here. You spend so long with her inside of you and then you’re just like “Oh my God, she’s here!” I’m past the more difficult things that you go through.

    ‘You go through a lot when you come home from the hospital. It’s just an adjustment for everyone in the family. 

    ‘You’re learning about each other and as a mom, going through physically and mentally a lot. Now I’m on the other side of it, which is great!’
