A woman who was fat-shamed and publicly humiliated by a group of men while on the way to the gym shut them down in the best way possible.

Brittany Michelle Hynes was heading to the gym when she was laughed at and called a “hog” by a group of men outside the gym in California.

However, instead of going home and believing their comments (like most people would), Hynes continued on to the gym and worked out for over an hour.

The mother-of-one took to Facebook to slam the haters in a punchy post and showed that she won’t let anyone stop her from doing what she wants to do.

“To the grown ass group of men outside of the Westminster Wawa. Your laughter and rude comments didn’t stop me from busting my ass at the gym today,” she wrote.

“Yeah I know I’m not looking my usual sassy self while pumping my gas, please excuse my lack of makeup and my ratty old clothes. I did not leave the house to impress you today. I went to impress myself and to make my son proud of his mom.”

Hynes also shared a photo of her blood test results that show her cholesterol is well below the normal limit.

“This ‘hog’ as you so graciously deemed me has been on a journey to better herself. My doctor was blown away by my blood work. My total cholesterol was 118 which is well below the 200 limit for normal. I don't have diabetes or high blood pressure either. How many of you can say the same? Especially those of you who are clinically obese?”

She admitted that after the men’s comments all she wanted to do was skip the gym, go home and watch television, but she didn’t.

“This ‘fat ass’ almost gave up today. After being ridiculed I sat in my car in the parking lot and cried. I wanted nothing more than to go home binge watch ‘River Monsters’. But I didn't. I gave you all a big f*ck you and busted my fat ass. Over a hour, of sweating and huffing but I did it.”

“Now please excuse my big fat ass as I go home to my loving son who probably wants me to throw him around for another hour,” she finished.

The determined mother also shared the post on Imgur, where it has been viewed over 220,000 times.
