Fit mom pic with 3 kids spurs anger

This woman worked to get in shape and has 3 kids. Some people don't like how she looks.

http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/hot...192149769.html

The Okie Corral

And this was her reply to those nay-sayers:
“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,” she wrote, in part. “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.”

Oh, and she watches no tv. While at the park with her kids she also exercises instead of planting her face into the keyboard of a smartphone.

This kind of reminds me of what one of my sisters posted on Facebook recently. She and her husband (who are both chubby) were out walking on a hiking trail and a fit woman with a European accent of some sort passed them and they had a brief conversation. During this conversation my sister's husband mentioned that they both had doughnuts before the hike.

This mortified my sister. All the other women (and some men) responding to that post agreed that her husband made a very big faux pas and should be chastised accordingly. I thought it was hilarious, that she'd get upset about being outed as one who eats like crap and is therefore a chubby chubster.

No matter what you do, no matter what choice you make, even if you are doing the right thing, there will be people opposed to you.

I would also add an alternative version of this statement.

Hopefully. Being almost the best, but not quite there and someone else is quite visibly better, is a powerful motivator.

I do not find that level of "fitness" attractive in the least. I would bruise myself so bad on that. A woman should have some curves...

I think you can definitely take the fitness thing too far. I work with a girl who was always a little plump. Not in a bad way, though. She had a nice figure, and curves in all the right places.

About a year ago, she went diesel with her workout, getting into some kind of MMA training, and lost weight and really toned up. She looks terrible. Her face now has a gaunt, angular look, which is not very attractive. Someone mentioned Kelly Ripa earlier. I haven't seen her in a while, but she started to get that gaunt look too (I always thought she was cute before that).

The good thing is that, once they dial it back a little, they can still be fit, but lose the gaunt look.

It's a gland problem. The one between the nose and chin.

Your phenotype is genetic. You can modify it some, but not much. There are women in this world who would be larger than Ms. Kang if they were anorexic. There are some who would be thinner no matter what they did. Ms. Kang is showing off. It's like posting your IQ scores or posting pictures of your genitalia. That would obviously be in bad taste. So is bragging about the body she was born with. So is shaming people who weren't born like you.

do you think she had to work at it to get back in shape after three kids born one year apart?

so she is bragging about her personal accomplishment, a lot like a football player after they make a touch down or a baseball player after they hit a home run.... or is that showing off and shaming people sitting on the couch watching them do it?

Are you a pinko commie that voted for Obama? You sound like one of those "everybody should win" types.

Your position is that she's simply showing off when what she is actually doing is making a living off of her hard work. You demonize her for her appearance in an effort to avoid making people feel bad about theirs. You're no better than the people who make fun of fat people, in fact, you're just as bad as them.

If you knew what you were talking about you would realize just how foolish you sound. Ms Kang was not born like that, she works very hard to have that body, just like just about every other ripped and in shape person out there. You can lie to yourself to make you feel better about your own short comings but that doesn't change the fact that being in great shape takes hard work and dedication. It does come easier for some people more than others but it still takes hard work.

Just because fat people get offended doesn't mean she should be hiding her body.

As usual, bull. Sure, some people have to work harder to maintain a high level of fitness, but the number of people who actually can't due to a glandular problem (or whatever) is incredibly slim.

Lazy is the problem, not genetics.
