All Of Me follows a group of women in Austin, Texas, who have been friends, and fat, for years. Once they were passionately involved in Size Acceptance and the Big Beautiful Woman (BBW) social community. But now, one by one, they are choosing to have the gastric band or gastric bypass weightloss surgery. Losing weight is changing their lives in unexpected ways, setting them each on a journey of selfdiscovery, forcing them to reckon with who they have been, who they are becoming and who loves them for precisely who they are.

“In making this film, I hope to shatter myths about the obese and make those who are invisible to us, despite their weight, visible in ways in which we are not accustomed. Weight loss surgery is still very controversial. The beauty is the Girls have success and failure. I want to show that obesity has roots like an eating disorder, and what the physical and psychological journey is really like.”
