'Fit Mom' is back with "No Excuse Mom Clubs"

The fit mom whose picture sparked controversy a few months ago was featured on Nightline. Here's the video.

I don't really know how I feel about this. On the one hand I do agree that there are a lot of people (both men and women) who would rather complain then work out, but on the other there are moms who work their butts off for their families and simply don't have time to work out. Genetics does play a part too. I'm naturally pretty thin and it didn't take me any time to loose the baby weight while breastfeeding. That said, I didn't work out that hard. I'm actually pretty lazy some days. I guess I land in the "we don't need an excuse" mom club.

    I think it's just whatever works for you. Everybody handles their lives differently. Some moms feel like they don't have time to make time to work out, even for 20 minutes a day. Some just aren't willing to try. I hate watching this kind of thing, it always just irritates me about how everyone judges themselves based on what other people are doing...I do it, too, and I know I shouldn't! Right now, I'm just tired, and kind of coasting. I'm using these last few weeks before our move to sort of just enjoy my sweet foods and not stress too hard. Once we get settled in, though, I've already made plans to get my butt up and lose this leftover baby weight. It's just about whatever works for you. If "Fit Mom"'s family is happy and healthy and she has time to work out and do all those things, good for her! If other moms find time to go to these clubs and lose weight to feel good about themselves, good for them! I can see how some other people think it's "Fat Shaming", but I think people these days are just too sensitive. I shame myself enough about waiting until the move to get into our new routine, why would I let some random lady across the country affect how I feel about myself?

      I agree, Sheila, but know physical exercise is good for overall health. I have so many jobs that are not physical at all so I am pretty stationary for most of the year, that's why I love spring and summer to get moving again.

        I think I'd rather roll around on the floor with my kid then work out. Besides, fat people are funnier and if we get hit by a truck we won't die.

        lol sorry. I'm just so tired of all of this. My kid will notice the difference between fat and thin, short and tall, etc etc. But the first time he comes home asking what someone's excuse is for being fat, someone at school is going to get a talking to. I

            I think there's too much emphasis on outward appearance and weight. I don't want my daughters always thinking about their weight and what they look like. It's much more important that they work on who they are as people than what they look like.
