Brooke Birmingham is a beautiful 28-year-old woman from Quad Cities, Ill, who has been posting about her HUGE weight loss of 170 pounds over the last four years on her blog, Brooke: Not on a Diet.
Apparently, she was recently asked by Shape Magazine to be part of their “Success Stories” series, and submitted this “after” photo (pictured above). Shape, then asked her to put clothing on as part of the ‘editorial policy’ to which she refused.
“My body is real, not photoshopped or hidden because I feel like I should be ashamed. This is a body after losing 172 pounds, a body that has done amazing things, and looks AMAZING in a freaking bikini.”
See the detailed story with Shape, on her blog.
170 pounds is a BIG deal, what do you think about this amazing woman’s story, should she cover up or is Shape Magazine taking things too far?
