A blogger amazingly dropped 170 pounds, a great story for Shape Magazine.
The healthy lifestyle magazine asked for a recent photo of Brooke Birmingham. When the photo arrived and editors looked at it, they then asked for a photo with a t-shirt on. Shape editors told Birmingham it was standard policy, according to BuzzFeed.
Birmingham went back and forth with Shape and decided to not let them share her story.
A Shape spokesperson said it was a misunderstanding.
“This is a result of a misunderstanding with a freelance writer. This does not represent Shape’s editorial values and the comments made about Shape’s ‘editorial policy’ are absolutely untrue. Shape prides itself on empowering and celebrating women like Brooke, and any indication that we would not run the piece with the photo provided was wrong, as we would have been proud to share her inspirational story,' the spokesperson told BuzzFeed.
Birmingham shared the story on her blog, http://brookenotonadiet.com/ , which is having trouble handling the traffic. The response has been positive.
