In a world inundated with stories, articles and tips on how to banish belly fat, reduce wrinkles, grow more hair or remove unwanted hair, it’s easy to understand the pressures that many pregnant women face to lose weight after the birth of their child. That’s why, when Taryn Brumfitt posted a very untraditional before/after image of herself, it got the world talking. Her “after” image, seen at 2:44, is far from the ones typically plastered in articles and ads, not representative of the commonly-held notions of what a body should strive to look like post-pregnancy. Her story is one of bravery and self-acceptance, inspiring others to join her in her mission to love, rather than loathe, their body. Be part of the mission today. We all deserve to feel great about ourselves.

My name is Taryn Brumfitt! 12 months ago I posted my non traditional “before and after” photo and the world’s media stood up and took notice. People everywhere were astonished – how could a woman possibly love her body ‘after’?
Many applauded me for my bravery in posting the ‘after’ shot however, many berated me for promoting obesity. There were others who labelled me a bad role model for my children.
It got me thinking…the world has been brainwashed!
Women and girls are constantly held back and lead to believe they’re not as good as they should be. Why? Because every day we feel we’re being judged on our appearance and how far away it is from an unachievable ideal.
Lose weight, reduce wrinkles, fight cellulite; we’re constantly told to fight a battle to be someone other than who we are.
Excessive photoshopping, the sexualisation of women in the media and advertising campaigns that prey on women’s insecurities – it’s no wonder there is a culture of body loathing and body shaming of epidemic proportions going on in the world.
