Fat Shaming or Thinspiration on Social Media?

This mom of 3 has caused a social media firestorm after posting a hot picture of herself with the kids along with the caption “What’s your excuse?”

Facebook critics are now accusing her of fat shaming women. The picture has gotten more than 16 million views and over 12,000 comments. People have been supporting her (I mean DANG she does look good!) but others have gone as far out to say she’s a bully.

As a mom of two who gained 80+ with the last one– I just want to know what her secret is!
Her name is Maria Kang and she’s actually has set up a FAQ on her website addressing all the questions good and bad she’s received since posting this.

Some of you have inquired about my weight loss journey since having Bob. Happy to report in the last 4 1/2 months I’ve lost 63 pounds. I’m now doing strength training with a trainer two times a week and doing my best to stick with a 1,200 calorie diet. It has been extremely tough but I’ve learned to take it week by week.

Reading up on Maria.. she actually had weight issues too and has worked hard to achieve herĀ  look now. I think people may be taken aback by the caption. Personally, I think it’s her page, her body and she can do what she wants. As I continue to try to lose weight my mindset is– give me inspiration. I can look at a photo like this and think– yeah that’s where I wanna go.

Meantime– back to the treadmill :)
