You look amazing Sierra!! January 22, 2019 Reply Velly I love this channel so much ❤️ January 22, 2019 Reply Weird Cow I have a home gym so I don’t feel insecure. I just use a ski machine, a yoga mat, and a couple weights. =) January 22, 2019 Reply Anne K All these feelings are coming from within though. You feel like this because you're the centre of your own universe, but try to remember you're not the centre of everyone else's. They're all too busy on their own work out, sorry if you've had a bad experience though January 22, 2019 Reply Ines van Dijk So.true. I used to think everyone looked at me in the gym (as I tend to get a red face fairly quickly) but honestly everyone is just there for their own body, mind and health and just minding their own business. It is truly all in your head😌 Nice video Sierra 😘 January 22, 2019 Reply ayemii for me,,what i find to be the most embarrassing as a big girl is how fucking red and sweaty i get after literally 5 minuted on the treadmill January 22, 2019 Reply Lauren South you're not even fat lol January 22, 2019 Reply Mia Cericola Another good tip would be to find a workout buddy 🙂 January 22, 2019 Reply Nicole Norcia I’m actually surprised that you took the spon with lulu, they have terrible sizing for women, ranging from 0-12 , hardly ever having 12 in store and men get XS-XXL. How is it fair that men get to have bigger sizes and women don’t? January 22, 2019 Reply Lindsay June Hall One of the things I do to get over any insecurities I have at the gym is go on a Friday and Saturday nights. Every gym I’ve been to is almost completely empty on those nights so I feel free to try new equipment and get that awkwardness out of me then so that, during the week when it is busier, I don’t feel like the chubby girl at the gym who doesn’t know what she’s doing. January 22, 2019 Reply Kenny Ruiz Cuxim I love you💪👊 eres una super mujer, gracias por este video January 23, 2019 Reply Terry Liu Ahh girl lululemon sponsored you!!!!! Omg that’s amazing like this is lululemon everyone wants to be sponsored by them January 23, 2019 Reply Terry Liu I recently got a pair of fast and free leggings from lululemon and I love them even for like day to day lazy comfy leggings January 23, 2019 Reply Eliška Hrodková This literally made me cry, but in a good way. Thank you so much for this video 🙂 January 23, 2019 Reply v this was posted on my birthday January 23, 2019 Reply Madeline Goodbaudy OMG!!!!!! Lululemon is amazing!!!!!!! 🙌🙌😍😍😍 January 23, 2019 Reply Madeline Goodbaudy What gym do u go to?? January 23, 2019 Reply Monique Castelli This is so good!!! I only ever achieved something when I changed my mindset of why I ate healthy and worked out!!! I now workout because God wants me to keep my body healthy. We only get one body, so why would I want to trash it?? Also I love to feel like I am strong and toned, and the energy I get from working out is so amazing!!! Plus it helps my mental health so much, and that is something I’ve been prioritizing lately. Good luck on your health journey my dear, I know you can do this!!! ❤️ January 24, 2019 Reply Emma Kattrup I’ve always been super skinny, but never really felt 100% confident in my body, so recently I decided that I wanted to really start working out and getting stronger. I got my dad to make a workout program for me, and even though I only just started I am so excited! He is just the best personal trainer and really helps me learn more about fitness and my body and muscles, and just help me stay motivated! The gym can be such an intimidating place, but it really helps going with someone January 24, 2019 Reply Racheli Neustadter I subscribed to your channel because of your awesome bubbly positive personality. Now I see that you're one of those people that found a balance. You love yourself and you use that love to help you better yourself and take care of yourself and that's truly amazing and I hope you manage to stick with it and live a long healthy life! January 24, 2019 Reply maiteunholly Gym is for everyone ❤ January 24, 2019 Reply Alyssa Fay Harrington I watched this before going to my Zumba class ❤️ thank you, Sierra. You're incredibly inspiring. January 25, 2019 Reply mitchrc3 Gym cuteness. : ). I like to see a determined curvy lady at the gym working off some indulgence that she enjoyed. : ). And thinking about her next indulgence. January 25, 2019 Reply Toi L Thank you.. such a great video!! January 25, 2019 Reply morgan westerfeld it’s sad that this is something people feel but in our society it’s normal. but it shouldn’t. January 25, 2019 Reply Bhanu 95 What were you doin at the gym January 26, 2019 Reply Prin PRIN So happy I found you mindset is EVERYTHING last year I was so depressed always thinking about my weight numbers. I changed that this year and I feel so much better my I’m falling so I love with myself my marriage is better my work is better ! January 26, 2019 Reply erin friedrichsen No matter what, never call yourself fat! You are beautiful and an amazing person! There is absolutely no reason to call yourself fat! You are one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen in my entire life! Everyone in this world is beautiful and loved ❣️ much love to you sierra❣️ January 27, 2019 Reply Kara C Nice video. Im curious about the circut work outs. Also I thought the sponsored leggings would have plus size for this type of video. January 27, 2019 Reply Meghan Rocks Thank you SOOO much for this video!!😊💓 my friend and I have been talking about starting to go to the gym and have kept putting it of for a while now and this video really helped a lot of my worries and insecurities about the gym! January 27, 2019 Reply Amanda Martin Love this video, i definitely needed to be reminded to just stop over thinking and focus on myself <3 January 27, 2019 Reply Diolanda Caballero I love love love this video so much. I've been watching you like crazy because I feel like you're such a genuine soul.I just started taking my fitness serious maybe a month and a half ago. I've never really been "big" but I've been self conscious about the shape of my body and still remember when I was 9 and my cousin told me he would get my a treadmill for my birthday to lose weight. I've been longing for that strong curvy body (slim thick) since I was 15. I'm 20 now and I've gotten over my fear of the weight room and decided I wanted to be strong. I was tired of not being able to lift things over 20lbs and I only worked out cardio and legs. I used to always be embarrassed when some super fit chick would come over to help me with my form. I think when I finally realized no one cares what I look like at the gym and that everyone started somewhere I liked it. I hated going to the gym and now I look forward to it. I went from barely being able to curl 10 lbs to doing 15 with no problem in such little time. I always find motivation in people like you who never compare themselves and just want to be the best version of themselves!! January 27, 2019 Reply the walmartians Your not fat January 28, 2019 Reply the walmartians LULU U GO January 28, 2019 Reply Blaine McCauley Thank you so much for this! 💗 January 29, 2019 Reply Tsedekidis V What i ve learned over the years is that nobody cares about you in the gym 🙂 Even the most shredded are looking how to get better and better. "Everyone's is in their own spot so don't be embarrassed". Nice quote! January 30, 2019 Reply Wendy Araujo You should try CrossFit 🙂 January 31, 2019 Reply Émilie Tremblay élève Your my biggest inspiration I love you but you have to know your pretty ❤️ February 2, 2019 Reply Cassandra Ethier I feeeeel you 100 percent!!! I’m in curvy body and I was smaller before I started intuitive eating) but now I don’t care 🤷♀️ I’ve gained weight back I’m done with my yo-yo weight and I. Am not even trying to loose weight anymore and learning to love my body! Dieting causes binge eating and I couldn’t handle it anymore lol What lululemon??? Canada brand 👏👏👏 I love them 😍 February 2, 2019 Reply See Kat Do I adore you February 5, 2019 Reply HiByebtwn I’m such a mole, I don’t make eye contact with anyone in the gym. Get my workout done and leave. People at the gym are all on a fitness journey, So I don’t care what people look like. February 5, 2019 Reply Nicole Salava As the smallest girl at the gym (after loosing 40 pounds) I can honestly say that no one gives a single fuck about the “bigger people”. In fact, most people are silently cheering you on. A lot of us have been there and know how hard and uncomfortable it can be. But also at the other end of the spectrum, it’s uncomfortable for us too. It’s something I’m working on – but being in the free weight section and always makes me insecure. February 7, 2019 Reply JustJanet As a fitness instructor I totally agree with you! I teach fitness and it comes in all shapes and sizes! To workout and feel good you need to EAT! I can’t tell you the number of times people have come to classes and almost passed out because they haven’t eaten! Does your car drive without gas or being charged?? I try and teach positive body image and that’s whether you are teeny tiny or on the exact opposite side! We are are beautiful and we all have our own journeys! Just be active!! Also keep working on those push-ups… give a try on your toes for at least one and then maybe two next week … YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU THINK!! Hugs for a positive video! February 7, 2019 Reply Sondra Roberts Sierra, I just love you. I adore your positivity and you always make me smile. Keep doing you! <3 February 7, 2019 Reply StealingSunsets lululemon sponsorship? DAMN GIRL GO OFF 👏🏼👏🏼 February 8, 2019 Reply StealingSunsets i’m a literal noodle, i have no fat and NO muscle so at the gym i walk around feeling super insecure that there’s so many fit girls with huge booties, squatting 200 pounds and i can barely hold 5 pound dumbbells 😩 February 8, 2019 Reply Nick Stahl 💪 February 12, 2019 Reply Miriam Onen This is no hate to you Sierra but Lululemon does not do sponsored videos. A while back Brittany Dawn Fitness came under fire for claiming her video was sponsored by them. They responded due to the uproar it caused and said they did not even know of her. I don't want to see you get dragged but perhaps you thought being sponsored was equally associated with using affiliate links but the two are very different in legal terms. Have a good one and again no hate oxox February 12, 2019 Reply And I Oop I found you’re channel yesterday and girl I love you! I am so happy you have a channel supporting female and our bodies! I am working on losing weight loss and I’m so happy, because you are right it’s not all about numbers. I workout, eating less, no junk food or fast food, and girl I’ve been feeling so good! To everyone who is losing weight you can do it! Have confidence and believe in yourself Queen!! ❤️❤️❤️ February 15, 2019 Reply annie miller ❤️ February 17, 2019 Reply Laura Jane I joined the gym mid last year. I always hated the gym because I felt you had to thin and super fit and know how to do all the exercises to go. February 18, 2019 Reply Ooga Booga For me every time i see overweight people in the gym me & my friends think like good that he/she comes here theres supposed to be judging in gym February 19, 2019 Reply Hannah Rae Thanks lady! Awesome video! Really needed the reminder! 👍 February 20, 2019 Reply cami 4f Love you so much sierra , your the best . You help me a lot to improve my selfsteam 😊 February 20, 2019 Reply Hannah Tan Obsessed with you! February 24, 2019 Reply In Dreams if you keep doing weights, you'll look bigger, do 7 day arm challenge instead March 8, 2019 Reply Bethany I thought lululemon didn’t do sponsorships… March 10, 2019 Reply Alicia Rendon love this ! March 13, 2019 Reply Meline MovieCat I feel comfortable in my gym. It's very varied, there are buff people as well as seniors, teens, new mums and "new to this" people. There's a strict no-bullying rule and I have never felt being looked at. I do focus on numbers because it keeps me motivated but I don't compare myself to anyone else. Why should I? 120 to 89 kg postpartum after not quite 8 months so far and proud of myself. March 24, 2019 Reply Natasha Kings Girl trust me I've been to the gym and trust me i know you can do it, You have the fire in you and the motivation, and the harder you work out they won't be staring because of your weight they'll be looking at you and admiring your strength to keep pushing forward March 31, 2019 Reply Saverio Russo Hey girls, your shape can be modified according to healthy training. Gym is there to feel better. Let's accept your actual status in order to aim your next goal. April 1, 2019 Reply Saverio Russo Sierra! Your facial features are great! 😊Your shape it's only about your goals and you can change it when you want! 😉 Great attitude! April 1, 2019 Reply Gloria Lawson Awwww literally been doing the same thing don’t care about losing weight at all! IT HAS BEEN SUCHHHH A BLESSING! Lol also I got me some lulu lemon weightlifting shorts for my powerlifting and they are soooo awesome! I’ll have to check out the leggings eventually! Got to save that money! April 3, 2019 Reply Bill Tate I feel like if you actually want to work hard and get heather Idk just don’t be the hoe who is waisting everybody’s time on machines you don’t know how to use April 12, 2019 Reply Max Today is a brand new day and I want you and your body to be shown off to the world in the best version it can be. Take real action and find the #1 thing that’s makes you so insecure about your body and use that as motivation. “Look good, feel good” it truly is true. I use to be overweight and every time I bought clothes I would look terrible in them and would always blame it on the clothes so I kept buying new ones and still looked terrible. But once I realized my body was the problem not the clothes, I took action, slimed down, and grew muscle and now I look good in anything I put on. I don’t have to worry about pulling my shirt down every 4 seconds over my big belly or order larger shirt sizes to look “slimmer”. When you’re in shape, you truly will look good in anything you put on and it’s honestly the best feeling in the world. Your confidence level will sky rocket and you will be able to do activities and not get tired after 2 minutes lol. A lot more people will acknowledge you whether that’s men or women or whoever you want to attract. I went from 240 to 190 in 4 months then went for 190 to 200 with pure muscle (I’m 6’2). Trust me, your life will change forever, but it starts with you and your choices and how badly you want it. Literally take an actual minute and think about all the times, ALL THE TIMES you’ve felt insecure in public or nervous cause of the way you look. Now use that as motivation! April 15, 2019 Reply Kirstie Reagle Thank you for doing this video! This is always how I feel… the “fat girl” in the gym. I’m definitely going to try to change my mindset as well, thank you for these tips! You’re beautiful inside and out! ❤️ April 20, 2019 Reply XxAri_GrandeGamingXX X guys being skinny its just a trend nearly everyone wants to be in in the 90s there wasnt most hate on your body like now were all been brainwashed BE YOURSELF! May 11, 2019 Reply Ebru Evermore Ive been trying to look for leggings that dont slide/slip down from the waist area. Do these slide down? May 14, 2019 Reply Albin Then start fasting FATTY May 24, 2019 Reply HEYBIBLEE G. I'M so fat and I felt unhealthy I want to hit the gym but I'm so shy cause they will judge me cause I'm fat. May 28, 2019 Reply Julia Hey! Thank you for making this(: would love to see more videos like this, I need to workout for my health not to be thin but mainly for my mind and sanity. I always start then stop :O this is awesome! Hopefully I can start and keep it up :DD thank youuuu <3333 June 1, 2019 Reply Red Tape You lose ALL credit when you start going off on Fat-Acceptance and supporting MLMs… June 2, 2019 Reply Medo Med Well said June 6, 2019 Reply Liliana Morales Usually people cheer you on since you are trying to better yourself. June 6, 2019 Reply JabbatheHut Great video. Exercise should be fun. Gotta do what you love, but I love weightlifting. Also, try listening to Mindpump on Spotify for more inspiration. I'm addicted 🤩 June 8, 2019 Reply Carolien Faas Ok, when you said nobody is looking at you, I felt like I had to add something. When I’m at the gym I get bored of looking at the screen that shows progress and stuff and I start looking at the other people working out. I just scan the room and stare at people until I catch myself staring and look elsewhere. I obviously don’t mean to stare or make anyone uncomfortable but it just kind of happens, I know my friends do it too! So if people are looking at you in the gym, it might just be out of boredom/ not having anything better to look at :/ June 10, 2019 Reply Alicia Peña Who else is watching this before going to the gym?…just me? Lol I LOVE U THOUGH June 14, 2019 Reply Marcus Lee Only pussbois laugh at people trying to workout June 18, 2019 Reply i don't care My name is Sierra as well 🤠 June 21, 2019 Reply Ruth DeLacey Hey Sierra, you'll probably not read this because I am late but I want to tell you this story. You were talking about how you've always been focused on sizes and the number on the scale. I am focused on health, but also weight and I need to work on that mindset. My friend (who has the "ideal" body) and I were texting recently on an unrelated topic and here's what the conversation came to. Me: Do you think you would lie about your weight too? I know I might.Friend: I might lie about my weight without knowing it, because I don't know how much I weigh.Me: Do you not have a scale in your house?Friend: We have a scale, but I don't really care about my weight so I just don't use it. My friend's mindset is seriously #goals 🙂 June 24, 2019 Reply Kristina Bennett LULULEMON doesnt make plus sizes. They are not for "fat"girls. I am a plus size girl who weight trains and does miles of cardio a week. I can bench press 105 at 5 feet tall and Im 48, and I cant find gym clothes that are functional and and arent stupid. June 27, 2019 Reply Amelia Gray You are amazing July 5, 2019 Reply Brianna Aguilar peep the sketchers tho 😂 but love you <33 July 6, 2019 Reply Keren Oparaugo Po July 12, 2019 Reply cmdelacey I can’t do a push-up either. Solidarity July 18, 2019 Reply mia costello I’m not curvy, but when I swam I was a size 4 but then I quit so then I went to a size 8 but now to a size 6… my ideal is a size 2…. I’ve never really relate to being “the fat girl” at the gym since I have my own gym in my house, but the YouTube’s I watch that I get my workouts from are my ideal size or smaller… I’m only 4’11 but I have a huge back so i hope it somehow gets smaller? But anyways I’m just trying to lose weight so I’ll look good when going into sophomore year, be toned for field hockey and swimming and crew July 20, 2019 Reply M. Ruth I know no one will probably see this, but I just want to recommend fitness blender website to anyone who wants to get in an awesome free workout. I’m a mom of 3 girls. 6 and under. I have zero time to go to the gym, I don’t have money to hire a baby sitter and honestly I don’t have money for a gym membership. I just want to encourage those out there who don’t have the luxury of a gym to still take care of your body. I’m not focused on weight loss, I just want my body to feel good. Working out is such a stress reliever and it’s what I look forward to everyday! Fitness blender has hundreds of free workouts and an awesome variety. Cardio, HIIT, strength, yoga, and kickboxing are all there! It’s a husband and wife duo and they are so body positive and so encouraging! I’m not affiliated in any way, it’s just a website that has changed my life. ❤️ July 23, 2019 Reply Justin A These fat bitches that promote this ‘accept my fat ass’ narrative makes me sick 🤮 August 14, 2019 Reply Lobster Rock :)))))) August 31, 2019 Reply MariposaGal19 I like to remind myself when I'm feeling insecure at the gym that "exercise is a celebration of what your body can do, not punishment for what you ate." Not sure where that quote came from, but it's helped me so much! September 4, 2019 Reply orionh3000 how come your so special you managed to get LULULEMON to sponsor you?? September 6, 2019 Reply I kick life's ass I'm a guy and I used to think that everyone would laugh at me at the gym but Really I was the guy that everyone helped I felt like everyone was my big brother or something It's weirdAnd everyone was just so nice September 12, 2019 Reply Candice Christensen I know this is one of your older videos, but maybe say the size range. Lululemon doesn't go above a size 14 which isn't very inclusive to all curvy people September 16, 2019 Reply Holly Anthony I can't do it, I just can't September 21, 2019 Reply Arianna Holmes I’m a pudgy thick girl lol and I switched from Planet Fitness to a powerlifting gym. My gym partner flaked on me the past two months because she reached her “body goal” and basically doesn’t want to help me or doesn’t want to be seen with me. I finally decided to go by myself and had a full blown panic attack and cried in a corner because there were so many people there. This girl who was like twice my size walked in with the MOST confidence I have ever seen and she went about her business and started her weightlifting routine even though people were giving her weird looks. Ever since then I’ve been pushing myself to go to the gym at least 2-3 times a week and I feel soo much better and healthier. Now I feel comfortable with my body enough to wear shorts and tank tops to the gym. September 25, 2019 Reply square power I loved your talk at the beginning of the video, such a great minset! C: October 11, 2019 Reply Playtime 4eva I just found her recently !
