Before anyone gets upset by the title, please watch the actual video. The other day I posted the “what I eat in a day” on weight watchers video and basically did a similar disclaimer in the beginning. You can want to better your health; whether that be mentally, physically, or both and remain body positive. Just because I want to lose weight and feel healthier and happier, does not make me NOT body positive. The reason why? Because I love myself right now, and at any size. Self love comes from within, it’s inside of you, not the number on the scale or the pants size you wear. It’s the love inside of you for YOU. I just want to get back to a healthy, happy Alex 😊 and I already feel so much better since I started getting back to a healthy lifestyle. Please understand that this is not about “being skinny” or “diets”, it’s not. It’s about health and happiness. I feel good when I work out and eat healthy. That’s all it’s about. I hope you guys understand and listen to the words in the video. I love you guys.
LearningToBeFearless I wish you all the best! I have lost 60 lbs so far without hunger by switching to a whole foods diet and eating a ton of low calorie density vegetables. Before that I tried EVERYTHING and I would always reigain the weight because I was always a bit hungry or deprived on a diet so I would snap sooner or later. Now I am on a slow but stedy weightloss path for over a year an a half and feel amazin. It is important to minimaze/exclude oils, salt, sugar and fatty animal foods and to exclude all proccesed food. I hope somebody benefits from this advice.
I love the fact that you posted this! I just subscribed to you too. I was just thinking I want to do better with my body in a positive light and this make me a true believer that I'm doing something healthy and positive for me. I have the same concerns about losing weight and what it means to others as you do. I'm praying that you find that happy golden space when the rest of your life that's tied to your weight becomes balanced. I hope for your happiness.
You can love yourself and still want to improve yourself. Nothing wrong with that. I hope WW works for you. I lost 100 pounds on it and I've kept it off for five years now. It really helped teach me how to eat healthy.
Honey then do it. You can do all things. Watch the fasting movie, it's on amazon prime. Sometime it's not what we eat but when...eating small meals all the time can lead to insulin resistance and obesity. I've lost 89 pounds last year and have kept it off.
Hiring a personal trainer was one of the best decisions I ever made. It kept me organized, it stopped me from getting bored, and it helped me know there was always someone on my side. That was two years ago and now he and I are also great friends and I still train with him. I went from a size 22W to a 12-14. It was awesome. And I love my body both ways but now I also feel like my body is healthier which was the whole point.
Good for you, babe! True self love starts as soon as one realizes they need to take care of themselves and their health - you acknowledging that you want and need a change is you loving yourself and your body enough to start caring about it.
It is truly amazing that you realize how good it feels to start living a healthier lifestyle! This is not me shaming anyone for being bigger but rather rooting for the ones who are willing to take care of themselves. Diets do not work, you have to start changing your eating habits, your mindset and lifestyle. Nobody says you need to count calories - the happiness, weight loss and change in general will come your way as soon as you start making healthier choices.
I know how hard it is, I've lost 25 kg after gaining a lot of weight within a few months due to an unhealthy mindset.
Darling, you are wonderful and beautiful - you can do it! I'm rooting for you xx
I feel like weight watchers is the farthest from "diet culture". It really taught me how to eat well and for the most part I always felt full and satisfied. Although it sounds untrue, it really is more of a lifestyle change!!!!
Awwwww…..baby you really are attractive. As a guy I can understand the tremendous pressures on women to keep within a certain size/wt. Anyway I have a little extra wt myself and oh baby is it ever tough to keep my wt down. I feel almost no pressure to do so however. Guys don't feel nearly the pressure women have on them. You have a good attitude and I believe you will figure it all out eventually. At least you have a very feminine beautiful body and adorable face.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight. Excess weight is uncomfortable, hard on the joints, hard to move around, skin gets sore from rub spots, clothes don't fit well, it drains energy, I could go on...
I look forward to becoming motivated by your success!
Do KETO!!!! Seriously. I just lost 22 lbs and ate Steak and eggs! Don't pay anyone $$$ I am going to post my favorite Youtube inspirational people. Highfalutin low carb is one (he is amazing) and AllyMcwowie? Look her up. She lost 178 lbs in 2 years on Keto. She has a lot of information and ideas on weight loss. Goals are important!
Hi Love, I am new to your channel and I immediately fell in love with the content you create, with your channel and most of all with you. All I wanted to say is you are beautiful and amazing! I can absolutely relate to sooo many things you talk about. I send you lots and lots of hugs & love! You do you honey. Please continue to share your magic and make the world a better place 💕🌈😘 Let your light shine
Praise the lord friend GO VEGAN 🌱 GO GREEN ALL THE WAY TRY IT .....AVOID PROCESS FOOD ,,,,,AVOID GMOS IN YOUR FOOD ....YOUR ARE BEAUTIFUL......LOVING YOURSELF VERSES HEALTHY.......YOUR CHOICES......BEAUTIFUL
This video showed up in my recommended so its the first one of yours I’ve ever seen and I just have to say you are SO PRETTY WOW 😍 You also have a pretty voice lol. I definitely subscribed.
Also a health tip, you should look into veganism! I just started to and decided to transition after researching how healthy it is. I haven’t even fully cut out animal products and I feel so much better health wise
Hi..I stumbled upon your channel and I love you. I just wanna point out that I look like you. So I don't wanna offend you, because I'm really offending myself then. You need to try intermittent fasting combined with low carb food or keto. I am too an emotional eater, food addict, sugar addict. I lost at least 25 pounds in last few months. Nothing..nothing ever worked for me like that..i would just end up gaining more with other diets. Do you know what? You are not guilty of anything! It is sugar and additives in processed food that make you wanting more and more! When you have huge craving, do not blame yourself..you need to add more healthy fats to supress hunger and cravings (coconut oil, almonds, olives, butter) .. Cut the carbs and white "drugs": sugar, flour, white rice..even fried potatoes..bread..pastry.. I am rooting for you as much as I am rooting for myself! 💜 you will notice the changes very soon ❤
If it works for you that's all that matters. A lot of people seem to believe that just because someone wants to lose weight or just change something in general that it means they don't love themselves or have low self esteem but wanting to be the best version of you doesn't mean any of that. People will believe what they want but that doesn't make it true.
You sound SO much like me. I mean identical! I just joined WW, and personal training and boy has it been a struggle. Watching your “what you eat in a day” video was so crazy because you literally eat the same things I eat! When you pulled out the Jiff peanut butter to go cup with the banana I got so excited because I eat that combo alllllll the time! I’m writing this to say that I’m so happy I found you on YouTube and you have totally inspired me to continue and stay strong on my health journey. I’m an emotional eater as well and whenever I become stressed or emotional I automatically want to go to food. There have been so many times in your videos where you have literally taken the words right out of my mouth. It’s so comforting to see and hear someone that looks like me that is going through the same struggles as I am. You have totally made my day after watching this video because it just reassured me that I’m not alone. Thank you for being so transparent and honest with us because you speak to me more than you will ever know.
Hey sweetheart! I don't know how i can tell you how much i realte to you.. The emotional eating, the stress eating.. Gaining weight and then feeling miserable about your ownself even though you keep telling yourself that you love yourself.. And you are amazing.. A time comes when you want to better yourself! You go girl!!!😘😘😘
I’m super late and just watched this andtorally needed to see it because I just re committed to my plant based vegan lifestyle! I’ve been vegetarian almost 2 years and have been wanting to make the change for my body and lifestyle. I’ve been in such a funk for so long I’m excited to be back on track and get healthy again.
i just came across your channel and i must say you are very gorgeous no matter what weight you are....but i support you so much and i really believe that you will acheive your goals ...fingers crossed xx god bless you and BTW im a new subscriber 😉
I saw your video about how your Dermatologist suggested you talk to your new PCP about wt loss, but the comments are disabled. I know it gets old to be treated like all you are is your excess wt. But I did want to put a more positive spin on that January interaction. You know how after you rearrange & clean your room and it looks great but your eye catches a piece of lint or string on the carpet? Well maybe the Dermatologist scanned you and saw a beautiful, healthy, young lady and the ONLY thing she could find that needed any improvement was the wt. And as a dr she probably felt she had a little opportunity to interject her suggestion. She may have really thought you were cool and special and may not have mentioned the suggestion to another patient she didn’t bond with as well. So maybe take this particular suggestion from her as a compliment and well intentioned.
And BTW since THIS video IS about wt loss, let me suggest u look into the Gastric Sleeve. I will be doing it myself soon. What ppl don’t realize is that past dieting ruins the Basal Metabolic Rate, changes neurotransmitters and increases ghrelin. Each successive diet is less effective, as the body learns to survive against “famine.” Which means that you really do NOT eat much, but ur body is hoarding everything, while skinny girls (who have never dieted...) eat tons. But The Gastric Sleeve resets the Set Point, speeds up the Basal Metabolic Rate, balances neurotransmitters and reduces ghrelin. IOW, it makes ur body ACT like it has never dieted before and it makes your body stop being paranoid about a famine. Suddenly, dieting WORKS again. Ppl think the Sleeve works bc it makes ur stomach smaller, but that is a very small slice of the reason it works.
Good for you I prefer M size and L Size for myself because I feel good as a Medium or Large size
I Don’t like XL and XXL because I don’t look good for myself
Im love trying to lose weight on myself and I support you
I feel you girl, I'm in the same situation. I do weight watchers I lost 70 lbs with it. But I got stuck at 230lbs, even thought I work out like crazy. I went to a weight loss clinic and they prescribed an appetite suppressant, phentomine, and man that stuff is powerful I take half the dose and it compltely eliminated hunger, you should look into it on youtube, lost 5 lbs in the first week. Regular physicians do prescribe it too, but only for three months I think.
Can you do more videos with your weight watchers journey? I just rejoined and would love to go through this journey with you. I know not everyone will agree with these type of videos but some of us are out here in the same boat. ❤️❤️
Nothing wrong with wanting to be healthier. I lost 30 lbs from cutting out junk & portion control with 30 mins of exercise. I'm not for being a skinny size 2 either. I'm about being healthy. I got them Serena Williams thick thighs 🍗🍖 lol
Love this channel and you! Your gorgeous! I'm a body positive fitness instructor. You can loose weight and be body positive! I did. Do what makes you happy. I think its important at any size to est healthy and exercise. Also, if you get bored, check to see if you have a class called Poundfit at a gym near by! It has been life changing for me! You drum to the béats, riffs, and changes in music, with weighted drumsticks. You'll feel like your dancing as oppose to working out! Love your message.
You are so pretty! I love your channel and how willing you are to share. You can still be body positive and want to work toward a healthy relationship with food and exercise. That is something we should ALL be doing.
You go girl! Its awsome that u want to be healthier. I think everyone can always make improvements. Being body possitive and healthy is exactly the same thing. If you are not striving to be healthy (what ever your size) then u are not truly loving yourself.
I think its really courageous of you to put yourself out there and talk about this, I admire you for and that you should be really proud of yourself! I lost 20 kilos over summer two years ago, it took about 3 months of sweating it out doing aerobics and jogging getting outdoors really worked for me, and with my fitness pal app really helped me too as it helps with counting calories and how much exercise you need to burn it off, and meal ideas. It takes a lot of discipline and dedication and drive but anyone can do it you just have to be in the zone! Stay positive and set a goal weight to strive for, a goal will keep you focused. Think of a gorgeous dress you want to wear that really kept me motivated trust me find it inside yourself! You can do it!!! Stay positive gorgeous! :-) xox
Your so beautiful, I weighted 215pd I understand and I did an juicing diet for 2 weeks to what happens and weighted myself after I was 203 pds felt good I have blood pressure my whole but Even when I young and skinny so I had lose weight but I also back thinking about doing it again and hopefully longer so it hard to stay on don't ever let anyone mess with your atmosphere and your mind to stop you for anything
Hello from Europe. You are beatiful girl but you eat to much and sorry but unhealthy. Healthy it is simple and fresh food. Vegetables, fruits but not all because same fruits have to much sugar. Pasta, bread, protein sheiks this is not for you. You can make yours sheiks from fresh products. 3 miles small portion , between 2 healthy snack and nothing to eat after 6 p.m. Lots of water , water with lemon or with mint or with lemon and mint and lots of swimming and gym. No sugar, no salt. 1200 - 1500 a day, that all. In few months you will in fabulous condition.
3:21 lifting weights burn more calories btw, if you want to lose weight you need specific numbers and goals, if you dont have them you wont even know if youre progressig or not, if what youre doing is good or not. There is no easy way out of this, you should take it more seriously if you really want to do it. Get your mindset right.
