The Body Image Movement

Rather than showcase a journey from plus-size to slimmer, Brumfitt chose a photo of herself in a bodybuilding competition as the “before” and a photo of herself after having given birth as the “after.”

Taryn Brumfitt is an inspiration to all women and a prime example of how learning to love your body can change your life forever. In 2013 Taryn hated her body and strongly considered using surgical methods to “fix it”. However, Taryn’s desire to be a good example for her daughters outweighed those initial negative thoughts. On her website, “Body Image Movement”, Taryn writes, “How am I ever going to teach Mikaela to love her body as it is if her Mummy can’t do the same?” …And that is where her journey begins….

I support Taryn 100% because her story is touching and familiar territory for me. For years I struggled with loving and accepting my body until I finally learned self acceptance. Instead of pointing out all of the attributes I loathed I started admiring the aspects of my body I adored. The more madly one falls in love with oneself and one’s own life, the more madly one receives love from others and from the world. Self acceptance makes life much more enjoyable.
