A blogger stirred up a Facebook firestorm after posting a picture of her toned body with her three young kids.
The picture has the title, "What's your excuse?"
Maria Kang, a 32-year-old fitness instructor from Sacramento, Calif., said she gained 40 pounds with her third child.
She took the picture after working out for eight months.
Critics accuse Kang of "fat shaming" women.
Kang said her message is being misinterpreted.
"My message was… what's your excuse for not working out? What's your excuse for not making time for yourself? What's your excuse for not being healthy?" she said.
Kang did apologize saying she was just trying to inspire others to lose weight.
She said she began her fitness journey because obesity runs in her family and she battled an eating disorder.
