Athletic Mother of Three Under Fire for Posting This Picture.
The Blaze ^ | 10/16/2013 | Liz Klimas

Posted on 10/16/2013 8:42:11 AM PDT by GraceG

While she might not look it, Maria Kang has three children between the ages of 1 and 4.

Though proud of her physique, this self-proclaimed “no-excuse mom” is being accused of “fat-shaming” after she posted a photo on Facebook showing her toned body with her three boys and asking, “What’s your excuse?”

The photo was posted last year with Kang asking people to share her message, but some didn’t take too kindly to it.

It rubbed some the wrong way, so much so that Kang issued an apology of sorts in late September, which has been shared more than 14,500 times. She admitted to Yahoo! Shine it’s actually more of a “non-apology.”

“Some saying I’m a bully, I’m fat-shaming and I need to apologize for the hurt I’ve caused women,” Kang wrote in a post.

If you’re hurt by her comment, you are probably fat. Oh, you might need to work on growing a spine as well.

The lady has no reason to apologize for being fit. More people could do it if they really, really wanted to. I know women just like her who you would never believe have had children and they look great. It’s not impossible to do.

If you take offense, the problem is with you IMO.

She looks great. Good for her.

The hate is from liberal Democrat fatties who want justification to get Ding-Dongs and Ho-Hos on their EBT cards while collecting “disability.”

Fat shaming? What the heck? I’ve heard, and used, tons of excuses, but I knew I was responsible for MY condition. The whiners are just jealous, petty, cats.

She’s pretty, fit, and has three kids. If she can do it, others can. She did not need to apologize.

Oh, go to the DU. The base was pissed Mooch was telling them to exercise. They all blamed their fat on a variety of things that, when drilled down, came down to being lazy.

The bad polling in the Dhim base on personal responsibility for your health is why her “keep moving” stuff has slowly faded away.

well she's a nice looking young woman with cute children.

...but her genetics are in her favor.....one of these days society will be able to admit that genetic makeup is a big part of your body's shape...

not defending the morbidly obese, nor those that are just lazy or who are glutins, just saying that many Americans are from German/Russian/Polish/Ukranian/Italian/Mexican heritage and sometimes that means being stocky, big boned,not necessarily tall....

My Wife has given me 3 wonderful children. She has also, literally, worked her ass off trying to get back into shape.

Not only for my appreciation, but because she feels better about herself and is healthier.

Neither of these women have ANYTHING to apologize for.

Well, she’s selling a product (personal training).

That’s a legitimate reason to seek attention.

Can we count the sins:

1. Looking great and bragging
2. Overcrowding world with 3 children in 3 years
3. Not having an abortion
4. Birthing boys exclusively

If a person can proudly claim that they are happy and content to be “plus sized” this woman has the same rights to make her point. There’s no right to not be inconvenienced or offended by another persons opinion.

MOM is positively young, obviously watching her diet, and exercises. It takes time effort and strong motivation. In truth the young and healthy do respond faster. God creates us to be healthy and gives us energy to keep in shape. This Mom is beautiful.

All cuts are from jealous people. Shame on you.

I didn’t see the part that said it was an ad. However, I was including all the people who felt they had to blither about being personally offended. If people had real friends in real life, they wouldn’t have time to be so silly.

“They all blamed their fat on a variety of things that, when drilled down, came down to being lazy.”

My favorite excuse is when people say “oh, they just have ‘big bones’”. I reply: “Funny, I’ve never seen a fat skeleton”.

The lady in the top pic should be proud. Those who take it personally are just validating her message. Americans in Obama’s America love excuses, love crutches, love being told “its not their fault”. Its McDonalds, its TV, its always someone or something else.

That said you don’t have to be a glutton to get fat but you do have to commit considerable amount of effort especially if you are not blessed with a fast metabolism. The only problem I have with health Nazis like Michelle Obama is they often project an image of being healthy as being an emaciated weak looking marathon runner or women that look like skeletor with no subcutaneous fat. Not that there is anything wrong with those images in themselves and I’m sure some of those people feel self-conscious. I just think the definitions of what is healthy is skewed a bit towards the unreal or rather certain categories of body type.

The challenge of our age is abundance and ease. Our jobs are increasingly the type that require little caloric output and yet most of our foods supply even in moderate amounts far more calories than we need. My grandfather who ran a dairy farm needed the thousands of calories supplied by the grease, bacon, biscuits, and gravy and didn’t gain a pound because everything he did burnt calories. The ability to accumulate and store fat was a key to survival in our pre modern world. Those that didn’t were less likely to survive famine, survive injury, etc. Today that survival advantage isn’t as necessary when we are living a life that our ancestors would consider a life of luxury.

Even in saying that most of us don’t have an excuse but of course for some it just isn’t a priority. There are no guarantees and living a life of total denial for the sake of a few more hours on earth is missing the point of living.
If you are unhappy with your weight or have a medical need then do something about it but don’t blame McDonalds but also don’t tie your weight to your ultimate self worth. We have a class of people today that spend their life chasing youth but then they don’t have children to share that life with, they remain single and don’t build families, they don’t have time between the gym the office and doing all the stuff that the modern world says we should be doing and valuing. Don’t let fear of being fat hold you back from being human and being a part of humanity.

“Facebook ... all the world’s attention whores in one big writhing morass.”

Not only was this hilarious, it cuts through, clarifies, and captures the essence of a business model based entirely on a single human failing - vanity.
