I am leaving 2018 convicted. I choose to only consume and be around energy that bring joy, love, gratitude, inspiration and value. . I took inventory of everything – from my marriage, children, family, friendships, career and fitness level. I even looked at the not-so-obvious-culprits, like the people I follow on social media, the music I listened to and the clothes in my closet. I thought about the things that irked me, exhausted me or negatively influenced me. However I felt, whether it was feeling lack of appreciation, reciprocation or communication, I realize fully that whatever I felt both good and bad, was all my doing. . I took accountability for my world and took responsibility for all my actions that led me to this moment in time. . Everything in my life at this very moment, is what it is, because I allowed it to be. If I do too much, it’s because I chose to do too much. If I feel taken for granted, it’s because I allow people to take advantage of me. If I feel devalued, it’s because I allowed someone or something take more precedence over how I positively feel about myself. . I don’t want to be an enabler anymore. . I don’t want to blame a person for pissing me off, just like I don’t want to blame ice cream for giving me a stomach ache. . We know what’s bad for us. . So stop consuming it. . Stop being around it. Stop eating it. Stop allowing it to surround you. Stop feeding it. STOP accepting it. . 📖 excerpt from my latest blog on mariakang.com 📸 by @jaymibritten . #noexcusemom #2019goals #dontenablebadbehavior
Kang con esta fotografía explicó que mientras fingía no sentir dolor en sus senos por un importante período, por dentro no ocurría lo mismo. Comentó que la decisión no fue fácil, pero resultó necesaria, ya que el entumecimiento y el dolor en los senos llegó a ser desesperante. Incluso, habló en su publicación de presuntamente tener una “enfermedad de implantes mamarios” al experimentar otros síntomas como: inflamación, nauseas y dolencias en la zona, así como el espalda.
«Comencé a sentir palpitaciones del corazón, fatiga crónica, ojos secos, dolor en las articulaciones y aumento de peso. Estaba perennemente exhausta y finalmente dije que ya era suficiente», escribió Kang en su publicación.

Breast implants are linked to cancer. Last week the FDA recalled Allergan, a breast implant manufacturer who’s textured implants increased the risk of developing breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). Distribution has halted for both their BIOCELL saline-filled and silicone-filled implants worldwide. This is a cancer of the immune system – which is interesting as thousands of women with implants are experiencing autoimmune issues. Including myself. Immediately after my surgery I underwent complications: from a hematoma, lack of sensation and numbness. It always felt foreign and uncomfortable to me and impeded on my ability to effectively nurse my sons. But like many – despite how I felt, I loved how I looked. Breast implants are normalized throughout the fitness industry. There was no way for me to be lean and have fatty breast tissue at the same time. It wasn’t until I was continuously massaging my chest from pressure and pain, when I thought about explanting. My good friend removed her textured implants when she dealt with continuous joint injuries and gained 30lbs in 3mths. Another friend was dealing with fatigue, brain fog, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. I began feeling heart palpitations, chronic fatigue, dry eyes, joint pain and weight gain. I was perennially exhausted and finally said enough is enough. I explanted one month ago and since then my fatigue immediately went away. My eyes don’t feel heavy. My inflammation has declined and most of all – I feel FREE. I feel ME. I feel like I’m finally leaving the young, insecure and impressionable girl I once was and am coming into the strong and confident woman I am today. When you know better, you do better. I hope the 400,000 women who implant yearly do their due diligence in researching the risks. I hope women in the fitness industry start rocking their lean, strong and natural physiques! I hope we all learn to love our bodies, at all sizes, in all forms and at all stages. #breastimplantawareness #explant #bii #noexcusemom #bodypositivity #mariakang #breastimplants Image by @truelovephotos
A pesar de los malestares, no deseaba retirarse los implantes y en eso fue enfática. La razón es que siempre tuvo senos pequeños y tras sus tres embarazos, pensó en que colocarse prótesis sería la mejor solución para tener pechos más llenos, tal y como los deseaba antes de llegar a las redes sociales. Recalcó que su idea de belleza estaba asociada con verse mejor y resaltar este punto: sus senos.

Dear Followers, I’m sorry. I don’t like regrets, but I have a few in life. As I look at my scarred, numb and deflated breasts today, I regret ever thinking they weren’t good enough. I fell into the insecurity trap. I remember the day I made the decision to augment my breasts clearly. I didn’t research. I never thought about needing or wanting it before. But, when I was told it was something I “had” to do to win – I did it. Without question. A part of me died that day. For years after I struggled with binge eating, Bulimia, Body Dysmorphia and Depression. I felt disconnected in the objectification of my body. While uncomfortable, it took years to remove them…I became pregnant multiple times, built businesses and traveled often. Those are all Excuses, though. The truth is, I was still scared and insecure. I was stuck in the social media world, where fake physiques are rewarded, “liked” and valued. I feared my husband’s opinion. I liked how I looked in clothes and swimsuits. I was vain. And I own that. Lao Tzu once said, “you will only get better, when you’re tired of being sick”. It wasn’t until I couldn’t stay awake throughout the day, when the chest pressure increased and when the flutters in my heart started appearing – when I said enough is enough. I’m sorry for my presence – for unconsciously normalizing an unnatural body standard, not expressing my challenges with body image and not being strong enough to unfix this years ago. I hope my vulnerability will encourage you to love your body and to value spirits that love their bodies too. I hope you know that all the filters, body altering apps, fillers and fake body parts will not make you more beautiful than you are right now. You are beautiful. You are enough. You are valued. You are prized. You are “liked”. Thank you for being with me on MY journey knowing that yours may look different and still, that’s ok. We are ok. Love, Maria . 📸 by @truelovephotos #breastimplantillness #explantjourney #bii #explant #bodypositivity #noexcusemom #mariakang #apology #reflections #fitmom #boobjobdiary
“Cuando era más joven, pensaba que a menos que tuviera una piel tersa, piernas largas, un físico proporcionado, senos grandes, nariz pequeña, labios gruesos y cabello abundante, tendría más posibilidades de triunfar. Realmente me lo creí. Todos los creemos, todos los días. Ahora, pienso diferente. Estoy triunfando por mi salud y mi longevidad”.

Why overexpose yourself? Why tell people your regrets? Why admit you have marital insecurities? Why reveal your elective surgeries? From dealing with binge eating and Bulimia, marrying a divorced father with a traumatic brain injury, experiencing unexpected pregnancies, dealing with public criticism and professional setbacks. I wrote about my separation, my acne and even my boob job – yes, I had a regretful blog entry about that. In true style, I stand here exposed again. Physically, emotionally and spiritually I am shaken. I’m hurt. I’m broken. Broken. A honest plastic surgeon recently told me, “I’m the only doctor who’s job is to break people.” In truth, yes. Sometimes he’s breaking people to correct a disfigured body part. Most of the time, that “disfigured” body part is a piece that society/media/influencers sublimely convince us we need fixing. I came to a doctor years ago and asked him to take my imperfectly perfect body…and break me… Ever since that day my body has been trying to repair itself. My mind has been trying to find itself. My spirit has been trying to forgive herself… To all those who think you’re broken, you are not. You are beautifully and magnificently made perfect. If someone doesn’t see that, they don’t see you – they are seeing a reflection of themselves. Insecurity breeds, drives and attracts insecurity. There’s a social app that seems like it was created for this 🤔 Do not believe everything you see. From fake body parts, fake followers and fake lives…. Expose yourself. Break yourself. BECOME YOURSELF. #noexcusemom #sundayreflections #mariakang #breastimplantillness #bii #fake #exposeyourself #become #boobjobjourney
Detalló que hace un mes aproximadamente le quitaron los implantes y con esta acción, los síntomas adversos disminuyeron. Aunque se refirió a “la enfermedad de implantes mamarios”, la comunidad médica o la Sociedad Americana de Cirujanos Plásticos no reconoce a profundidad esta afección como tal a causa de implantes de esta categoría.
