She Despised Her Reflection In The Mirror… Then One Day She Had An Idea.

Taryn Brumfitt would look into the mirror everyday hating her body and telling herself how ugly and fat she was. The mother of 3 considered having a tummy tuck and a boob job, until one day she had an epiphany. She thought, “How am I ever going to teach Mikaela to love her body as it is if her Mummy can’t do the same? How am I ever going to encourage her to accept and love the parts of her body that she doesn’t like without being a walking contradiction?” Taryn then decided she would not change her body with surgery and learn to love her body.

She posted this “before and after” photo on Facebook and it received 3 million likes. The “before” shot was from a body building contest and the “after” was post birth.

Her journey to loving her body was not an easy one and she blogged about it on her website, Body Image Movement. Taryn also started a Kickstarter campaign to fund a documentary she is creating to help other women.

I'm tired of seeing magazine articles where people bash others about their weight gain or weight loss. I love what Taryn is doing, don't you? Empower your friends and family, and share this post with them.
