    A better headline for the first photo should have been, "No excuses." When the word "your" is in the sentence it becomes judgemental and accusatory

    i've had to deal with a crap full of yolks like her. Always insulting me whatever.... if you like you good, you have it all great, Not all need to soak in glorified attention. I do that for my king Jesus Christ. I'm tired of admiring people who are giving me flak for their hell. Grow up!

    Are fitness buffs going to be applauding Maria Kangs's shape fifteen years from now when her kids have all become school dropouts and juvenile delinquents?

    Sure, it might not happen in Kang's case, but it could well happen to women she goads into spending time and money at the gym instead of taking care of their children.

    Maria has worked very hard for what she has acheived and she should be proud of it. However I wonder that if she really wanted to encourage women in a positive way, why she didn't choose to say "I did it, so can you"? Rather than the snarky comment of "What's your excuse?" She should remember that you should never judge a person unless you've walked a mile in their shoes. Her busy life is not the gold standard by which women should judge themselves. Each woman should make up her own priorities. I SUSPECT (hint hint this is conjecture) she is the kind of women who is judgemental about other women & satisfies her ego by making other women feel bad about themselves, even if she only does it subconciously.

    Exactly, But what most people don't realize is this full time working mom has been in the fitness business since 2002 and has been an active fitness competitor and spokes model on the cover of many magazines.She has no right to compare her results to anyone else's as she has been in the shape she is now or better since she won the "Body for Life" Challenge in 2002 when she was 20 yrs old. This was only meant as an advertising gimmick and not a very good one in my opinion, other than to try to make herself look better than everyone else.

    I'm a former Power Lifter and Body Builder, Gym Owner and Personal Trainer and I'm offended, but not by her picture, She does look fab...that's not the point. The picture portrays her to be Just a normal full time working mom who likes to exercise instead of being a lifelong fitness competitor and national spokesperson, and also that her business is fitness and maintaining her shape and physical condition. On top of the that the Caption above it "What's your excuse" is not cool at all for someone that should be trying to motivate someone to be healthy and in shape. It's one thing if she was Just an average mother of 3 that just went to the gym a few times a week and lived a healthy lifestyle but it is her life and that's what makes it WRONG. It's tough enough to someone to begin an exercise routine but to give them unrealistic expectations is why so many people still can't get into shape, even though we have a gym or personal trainer on every corner. It's like every day there is a new weight loss product to "Sell" or exercise routine to "Sell" instead of just teaching the basic fundamentals of exercise and nutrition. It's not rocket science people but all these people that making career changes and promoting themselves and the next great fitness guru are totally missing a great opportunity to help teach everyone to be healthy by just beginning a basic routine of exercise, taking a walk 3-4 days a week and just make better Nutrition choices. So many people also fall prey to all these multi level marketing companies that sell weight loss products, with their "Proprietary formula"...It makes me laugh every time I hear that, or internet and TV ads...They are NOT helping, They are the MAIN problem and they are legally stealing people's money and also decreasing the body's natural ability to get into shape ...Stay healthy my friends.

    All in all, not that bad a comment.

    But there's at least one thing you and others like Ms. Kang are missing. There are plenty of us out here who don't want busybodies trying to tell us how to live our lives. If we want to be healthier or live longer, we're adults fully capable of making our own lifestyle choices without any help from you.

    We obviously have Internet access or we'd be pretty unlikely to hear what Ms. Kang has to say. We can find out all we need to know about healthier lifestyles with the click of a few keys. In my case, though, I happened to channel surf past Megan Kelly's show on Fox News while she was interviewing Kang.

    Kang came across as a singularly narcissistic and unpleasant young woman. She's far more in need of help than those she wants to lecture. To find out that she's effectively a professional bodybuilder trying to drum up business only makes her that much more obnoxious.

    People want to make excuses for their own body image issues. You are overweight and can't lose weight? You are doing something wrong, plain and simple. Don't give me thyroid issues or genetics or other BS. It would defy the laws of physics if you couldn't lose any weight.
