520    "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.
