Fit Mom Flaunts-Baby Weight Loss On Facebook,Gets Accused Of Fat Shaming [Video]
Maria Kang, 32, posted a photo of herself on Facebook with her three small children with the caption "What's your excuse?"Do you think this hot mom is fat shaming?
Maria, a California mom who slimmed down to 125 pounds just eight months after giving birth to her third child has been accused of arrogantly fat-shaming women after she flaunted her hot body on Facebook.
Kang claims she wanted to show women they didn't have to accept being overweight simply because they had children, but says she was slammed with nasty insults. Kang to post a sarcastic apology on Facebook to her critics:
"I'm sorry you took an image and resonated with it in such a negative way. I won't go into details that I struggled with my genetics, had an eating disorder, work full time owning two businesses, have no nanny, am not naturally skinny and do not work as a personal trainer. I won't even mention how I didn't give into cravings for ice cream, french fries or chocolate while pregnant or use my growing belly as an excuse to be inactive.
What I WILL say is this. What you interpret is not MY fault. It's yours. The first step in owning your life, your body and your destiny is to OWN the thoughts that come out of your own head. I didn't create them. You created them. So if you want to continue 'hating' this image, get used to hating many other things for the rest of your life. You can either blame, complain or obtain a new level of thought by challenging the negative words that come out of your own brain.
With that said, obesity and those who struggle with health-related diseases is literally a 'bigger' issue than this photo. Maybe it's time we stop tip-toeing around people's feelings and get to the point. So What's Your Excuse?"
