It’s not that there’s anything wrong with plastic surgery if that’s what you want to do, it’s about the reasons why you do it. Or what you say to yourself in your own head in the morning about your body.
Taryn made online history by posting a before and after picture of herself that went viral. It received more than 3.6 million clicks on Facebook overnight. Her before photo shows off her fit physique on stage in a figure competition, while her after shot shows her body once it evolved back to its natural shape. Her point: Here’s a woman who achieved a “(near) perfect” body but still wasn’t happy. So it wasn’t about how she looked, but how she felt.
I’ll never forget waking up one morning to find a gazillion phone and facebook messages saying that Ashton Kutcher had blogged about EMBRACE. I remember waking my husband who was sleeping next to me to tell him “Honey I’ve still got it, Ashton Kutcher just blogged about me!!!”. He shooshed me and told me to go back to sleep!! I actually don’t get all crazy crazy about the celebs that I’ve met or supported me, after all, people are just people and as my Dad taught me “we all come into the world the same and we all leave the same”. I am heading to the U.S from 1st til 12th May, fingers crossed Ashton will be available for an interview, he certainly has good judgement…EMBRACE IS good for the world! #ihaveembraced #embrace #embracethedocumentary #bodyimage #bodyimagemovement #ashtonkutcher #ihaveembraced #aplusk

Fast forward to 2016 and Taryn has founded the Body Image Movement and written a book about her story called Embrace. The book is now a film and Taryn is continuing to spread her body love message as a public speaker.
As the Embrace documentary film prepared for release in August, Taryn found that body image is still a barrier in more ways than one, posting on Facebook: “the trailer for the film is not allowed to be seen in cinemas (with a rating M or less) and the film poster cannot be promoted on some social media sites as it is showing too much “flesh”. *sigh*”
Well, here’s a little share to help it along the way!
