This is the book for every woman who hates the way her body looks, and derides herself for not having the perfect figure. It is for those who have allowed those negative and harmful thoughts to affect their self-confidence and inform their everyday behaviour. Once a body builder with a lean, toned and taut figure, Taryn's obsession with muscle definition and the sleek lines of her body came with the territory of her job. Pregnancy and motherhood stole the identity she was familiar with and left her with feelings of self-loathing and repulsion that affected the way she thought about herself. After contemplating cosmetic surgery to reclaim the body she wanted, Taryn had an epiphany.

Here she shares her story to help harness and facilitate positive body image activism for all women.… (more)
