‘Anti-fit’ mom gets nude for a great reason
This mom has chosen to empower women by taking off her clothes.

Before becoming a mother, Taryn Brumfitt was a bodybuilder- super fit and toned. After she gave birth to her daughter, her body went through changes which put a dent in her self-esteem, according to Jezebel.com.

Your perfect post-baby body

"Anti-fit" mom!

After months of self-loathing, she had an epiphany: how could she teach her daughter healthy attitudes about body image if she herself despised her own body? And that’s when she chose to embrace her ‘anti-fit’ attitude.

The brave mom took to her Facebook and Twitter accounts to share a brilliant picture- an inversion of the traditional “before and after” pics you usually see from people who work out.

Wait! There's more...

She hasn’t stopped there… Taryn has started a drive to get funding so that she can create a documentary that will help others have a similar revelation about their bodies.

Take a look at her short, but powerful, video on her Kickstarter page:

Embrace: The Documentary

Many moms struggle to come to terms with the changes in their bodies once they have had children. Some never get over them, but others manage to embrace them, labelling their stretch marks battle scars with great pride.

How do you feel about your post-baby body?
