From HuffPost: "In May 2013, Brumfitt posted a “before and after” photo on Facebook that received more than 3 million “likes” — but this side-by-side wasn’t showing off a flat stomach post-weight loss. The “before” shot was from when she was in a body building contest, and the “after” was post birth. In the video, Brumfitt explains why she thinks the photo got so much attention. “Because heaven forbid a woman can love her body, after,” she said.

Since that image went viral, she has dedicated her time to speaking and writing about body love through her project, Body Image Movement. Now, she’s focusing her efforts on creating the documentary, and has turned to KickStarter to help fund its production."
