Shape Magazine Makes A Deal With Fitness Blogger

The mag reverses its previous stance

Last week we told you about fitness blogger Brooke Birmingham, who lost an incredible 170 pounds and had a bit of extra skin around her middle. She was asked to post for Shape magazine's "Success Stories section -- but only if she'd appear wearing a tee shirt.

The implication? Nobody wanted to see what Brooke's weight loss really looked like. After Brooke's blog post about her experience with Shape went viral, we're happy to say that the mag has reversed their position on the matter. It's amazing what a little negative press can do.

Of course, Shape still claims it was all a "misunderstanding, perpetrated by a freelancer." But after Brooke and Shape editor Bahar Takhtehchian appeared on the Today show together, it appears at least that the mag will be running her photo.

"We want to start a larger discussion about what happens after you lose a significant amount of weight," Takhtehchian said. "Because truly, there is a journey after the weight-loss journey, and those are the questions and the issues that we want to talk to Brooke and the other ladies about."

Let's hope they'll follow through. [Daily Mail]
