She asked a hundred women to describe their bodies in one word.
"Wobbly," "imperfect," "stumpy," "short," "frumpy," "disgusting." These were the replies.
That's when Taryn Brumfitt decided to convince every woman to give up body loathing and start loving her body instead. Here's more about her journey:
But still she wasn't happy with the results.
She posted a 'before and after' photo of herself in May 2013 which was liked more than 3 million times. The surprising element was the 'before' photo which was from when Brumfitt was in a body building contest, and the 'after' was post birth.
She has turned to KickStarter to fund her documentary that would hopefully inspire women to praise their bodies, no matter how they look like.
Brumfitt was considering a boob job and a tummy tuck before, but when she thought about her daughter, her opinions changed. She writes on her website (bodyimagemovement.com), "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?"
