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 self-discovery, forcing them to reckon with who they have been, who they are becoming and who loves them for precisely who they are.
