Can you help with the Mormon interpretation of Genesis 1:26?

Mormons claim that God was once a flesh and blood man by reference to Gen 1:26…“And God said let us make man in our image and likeness”…Therefor they say if man is made in God’s image and likeness, God must have looked like us and consisted of flesh and bones at some point in time.
I would like a not too long reply that I can use in a email format to respond.
