EDMONTON, Canada – When it comes to getting your body in shape for summer, a lot of people spend hours at the gym.
One mother says she is proud of her body and decided to show it off recently but had a horrible experience at a beach.
Tanis Jex-Blake was attempting to tan at Alberta Beach in Canada when she was mocked by a group of young people.
She decided to post her experience on Facebook, which has since received thousands of comments on the social media site.
“I’m sorry if my first attempt at sun tanning in a bikini in public in 13 years “grossed you out.” I’m sorry that my stomach isn’t flat and tight. I’m sorry that my belly is covered in stretch marks. I’m NOT sorry that my body has housed, grown, protected, birthed and nurtured FIVE fabulous, healthy, intelligent and wonderful human beings. “
She added, “But I’ll have you know that as I looked at your ‘perfect’ young bodies, I could only think to myself ‘what great and amazing feat has YOUR body done?”
The post was shared by a radio station in Edmonton, which received hundreds of thousands of comments on the topic.
