A California mom suffered criticism after publishing a picture on Facebook urging moms that having children was no reason not to be in the best shape of her life. Fox and Friends reported the interview on October 16, 2013. Why did this mom of three cause such an uproar?
Maria Kang is accused of being a fat hater. She has received countless hateful replies to her amazing picture. She has had three children, close together. This is something many mothers can relate too. She makes time for herself. She is proof that being a mother to small children doesn’t resign you to being a fat, overweight person. You can be in the best shape of your life and be a great mother. This is her message, so why did so many take offense?
She posted a message on her Facebook fan page and explained her story and how she is able to be so fit. In the message, she explains, she is a real person with stretch marks and loose skin like most mothers. Then, the last line in the posting says, “So, what’s your excuse?”
So many people found that question so offensive. The people who find it offensive, may need to look at their own lives. If they are finding many excuses not to be healthy or fit, maybe her message was for you. Your excuses, are just that, excuses. One day, you will either have to make time for exercise to lose weight or make the time to be sick. Really, it is your call.
