Just the beginning :)So basically I’ve always been super active, but my eating habits were not on point. In the blue I’m 160 pounds I was running everyday but struggling because I would go home to drink gin and eat poutine. In December I decided to change this. I started food logging. If I bite it, I write it. It forced me to take responsibility for what I was eating and over time my diet became really clean. Five months later I’m 140 and still working towards my goals. My running has improved so much, I can now run my 12km route in under and hour and can lift more than I ever thought possible. My body loves me for all the veggies and fruit it gets daily and my life has regained focus. I even got a job at my gym so I am completely immersed in this positive head space. Much love xo

Amazing


Thanks for posting for me Rae :)

You deserve it, you look so wonderful! :D

Hey Rae, what do you suggest for losing fat but not doing lifting? I have enough muscle because I'm in track at school but I want to lose fat for more muscle definition.

Eating right is the most important :-)

Finally committed to keto this week after following your blog for forever. Went shopping today and it felt like fucking CHRISTMAS! Why did I ever choose that boring low fat stuff and lean chicken breast when I can have chorizo smothered in cheese and bacon on the side for good measure! Oh mannn I am never going back! Thanks for being awesome, totally owe all of this to you

Hahahaah this is such a great msg

Hello you beautiful lady, you know the floral number in your pics is it a dress or playsuit and where is it from? Please say a shop that does size 14? So i love your views and opinions and would love your advice if thats ok. I have been dating a 29 yr old man and i am 22 so we have arranged to go on a weekend away to london in 3 weeks time and i haven't told him yet that i'm a virgin!! I don't know how to drop it in even though i feel at ease with him, please help xxxx

Hello! F21 does S, M and L and a Large fit me when I was around 165lbs and I would say a size 14/16 (UK) :-) It’s a dress! I never ever wear dresses but that one seemed to suit me.

Well theres nothing to be embarassed and usually there is never a right time so just let him know! :D

Also don’t feel pressured into anything please make sure you are comfortable.

I'm on anon because I'm ashamed. I created my tumblr 2 years ago hoping to start my fitness journey? Since I started it I've only gained weight. I feel so hopeless and I just wanna get it right, tomorrow I'm planning on losing 120lbs but I'm just failing. I feel so helpless! I I just don't know how to start, do you have tips for how I can start this? I need some help! Anything you've got I'll gladly take. I'm desperate :(

Well you have the chance to make another attempt, whether it be the last attempt you do or the fifth you can do this.

Starting is easy - you just start, you begin trying to change your life.

So your blog is pretty inspiring. I've been battling BED, restrictive eating, weight gain and weight loss for the past 10 years. I want to gain control of my life again. When you first started keto, when did the weight start coming off and when did you notice changes to your body?

When I first began Keto I saw a lot of water loss and to be quite honest, I don’t really see any changed in my body since starting Keto, maybe because of the mindblock due to scales and because I see myself every day. Only pictures help.

It doesn’t even matter, Keto helps with so many other issues that even if fat loss is slow it doesn’t bother me :-)

Hi Rae!! I wanted to ask for your opinion. I've been trying out keto for a month now. Did great on the first week but then boomer!, and since then I've been trying everyday but I end up binging on chocolate (even 90% cocoa but I end up eating the whole thing). My breakfast is keto but it seems I have an issue through the day. In the afternoon I REALLY want chocolate and I lose my control. I really want to make keto right because I believe it is fantastic but how can I stick to it and not binge?

Yeah I have chocolate problems honestly haha god. It will have to be done all within your mind, it’s nothing to do with needing the chocolate, so don’t buy it and find a new snack like cheese or nuts to replace it with.

It’s all down to just slowly cutting back or removing the problem.
