The picture soon went viral, inspiring multiple women to embrace their age and body and their selfies in bikinis. The women celerbated their imperfect bodies through the #jlochallenge trend.

A woman named Maria Kang recreated the picture and spoke how women should own their bodies and create their own accountabilities.

Kang posted an image, alongside the caption, “Thank you @jlo for inspiring this spontaneous pic in a white bikini this morning. Yes, my mirror is freckled with toothpaste (does your children only use your sink too?!), yes there are unpacked luggages on the ground, an iron, dog dryer and husband shaving somewhere in the background - but I"m getting it done!”

She went on to write, “If she can do it, if I can do it, if thousands of working moms who come in all sizes, shapes and ages can do it - then YOU CAN DO IT!!!”

Another woman revealed that she is 32 with three "beautiful daughters" adding, "Thank you @jlo for inspiring this spontaneous pic this morning. Our lives doesn’t have to end when we become mothers, it adds to it."

This body is 35 years young , gave birth to 4 handsome boys, love being a mom of boys and love being a wife to my husband for almost 17years. I have been a leader ( #nemflemingislandfl - Jacksonville) for 3 exact years now, with NEM community (Fort Meade MD) since 2015, and I love how it changed my life ❤️ I told my hubby yesterday about this bathroom selfie and how I feel uncomfortable taking my selfie, he always sees the beauty in me that I don’t, he pushes me out of my comfort zone ... he said “Lead by an example” and it reminded what @mariakangfitness always says. We won’t grow if we don’t get out there, and try our best to be fierce and fit So here we go, my selfie with NO filtered mirror, every stretch mark is a story and a blessing....always trying my best to challenge this body to get stronger and healthier not just for my boys but also because it makes me feel alive, I don’t know if I ever will be satisfied but that’s where it will always push ME to fight even harder even when I fall, I will pick MYself back up, Be kind to yourself and Stay Humble! Own your story. Create your own accountability. Don't make excuses for your inaction. If she can do it, if I can do it, if thousands of working moms who come in all sizes, shapes and ages can do it - then YOU CAN DO IT!!!⁣ Post your #bathroomselfie and tag 3 friends who can bring it like #jlo ⁣ #jlochallenge #noexcusemoms #whatsyourexcuse @lina_h_nem
