Summary "Body confidence does not come from trying to achieve the perfect body, it comes from embracing the one you've already got." 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. If she went ahead with the surgery, how would she teach her daughter to love and respect her own body if she couldn't do the same? Taryn's greatest challenge came next. How would she learn to love her body and transform the hatred she felt into something positive? Her journey to acceptance of her womanly figure and celebration of her femininity has been publicly chartered. Here she shares her story to help harness and facilitate positive body image activism for all women.
