  • I dont know why i cant get motivated. I lost 30 pound 2 years ago.. Then gained it all back and after feeling kind of stressed, i have NO motivation to eat as clean as i used to.. Or to work out. What is the best way to get started back up? Ive been praying for motivation but idk.. I still feel so lethargic

  • omg, you’ve quickly become my favorite person to watch for meal preps and fitness!!! girl!! I need a gym partner! & a gym membership…. LOL. you are so entertaining and hilarious! 😉

  • I recently tore my ACL from NOT stretching before my volleyball practice.. So I highly suggest stretching! Lol do you have any exercising tips for someone who’s recovering from this? Like any simple but actively showing results?:) btw I just found your channel and I love it! +1 subscriber!

  • Your videos are amazing. You are such an inspiration to me and many other people. I love how you aren’t afraid to show your love and compassion for God in your videos because you know that some people aren’t going to agree with that. But you know what you do it anyways and I absolutely, completely, totally admire you for that. I my self am also a Christian who loves fitness and I am young as well as you are. The amount of maturity you have is crazy. I have never seen someone your age have the dedication that you do.

    P.S. i would love if you posted more stuff on pump up

  • Hello! I just want to start out by saying, oh my goodness, you have motivated me to start my fitness journey, and for the motivation to keep exercising every day. “Exercise without proper diet, is wasted exercise”. Eating clean is something I struggle with a lot. Could you please start to upload quick and easy nutritious meal/snack tutorials?

  • Girl you are hilarious. Never fail at making me laugh!! This was literally me over thanksgiving. Saved all of my calories for lunch and dinner (had two Thanksgivings to go to!!)….and I ATE SO MUCH FOOD!!! Ughhhh…so good, but them goals though!! The struggle is real.

  • Binge watching all your videos & I’m THAT girl in the gym looking at her phone because I have to check your INSTA your workouts are LIT! Your a gem ❤️��

  • a tip that works for me is limit 3 main meals to around 300 calories to allow for a treat. I didn’t put a pound on last christmas and I indulged when I fancied something and still ate out but keep as close to 300 calories per meal x

  • Whitney can you please explain how protein shakes work? LolI’m getting into working out and changing my lifestyle and I want to try a protein shake but I just don’t know where to start. Like when do you drink themwhich ones taste good? I don’t want anything that could potentially make me gain weight, etc….

  • You’re videos are incredible and so well thought out. I love hearing inspiration lines from your videos. I think you have a very deep understanding of what life is about, and you should be truly proud of yourself <3:)

  • You’re one of my favourite Youtubers! I love how you always encourage everyone to work out, it’s been very helpful to see someone who has had a rough past be so encouraging and motivational, you’re definitely one of the best people of here!

  • Hi Whitney,Girl your awesome! Since I started following you both on YTube and Instagram I’ve learned a lot as far as workouts and prep meals. I’ve lost 37 pounds so far and still going not done with my goal. Ur fat burn arm workout is really good. You have to see me at the gym one hand I have my phone watching ur Ytube workouts so I can do it and other hand the weight lol people keep looking at me like ur here to workout or what?:) <3

  • OMG Cambria. I just want to say how much I love this video! I love your views on health and fitness and life in general. You are such a breath of fresh air! And your bloopers are pretty amazing. Haha! <3

  • you should totally make some workout videos that we can follow along with! that would be great! I’d love to see some at home workout routine videos from you. Love your videos keep up the good work! I love all your health, wellness, and motivation videos feel free to keep them coming!

  • I’m a new subscriber and girl, wooo!! Your so funny, had a little laugh, even had the dog look at me like “what you laughing at”. Love your vibe! I’ll be back!

  • that awkward moment when I watch this after thanksgiving and I’ve already starved myself all day and stuffed my face at dinner… oops

  • Thank you soooo much! In the beginning of November, I start STRESSING about all of the holiday food and parties coming up over the next couple of months. This year, I already am struggling so much less than I normally do because of LSF. On Thanksgiving morning, my family usually eats cinnamon rolls or bacon, eggs, and waffles. Usually, I either indulge and feel guilty or eat my usual breakfast of oatmeal and feel sorry for myself. THIS year, I made your coconut flour pancakes for the whole family, and everyone loved them and felt great all day. I just got the Guiltless Nutrition Guide, and I’m already in love with it. Add that to the HBSG and the Sleigh the Holiday Challenge, and I know I’ll be good to go. For the first time in ten years, my weight and my health have felt stable and manageable, and that is because of LSF, so thank you, thank you, thank you! I really feel like God brought your program into my life:)

  • These tips are great, and so true! I always try to bring the desserts and make them as healthy as possible which can be particularly easy because I’m allergic to dairy, eggs, and nuts. I’m just very worried about my carb intake for the most part. To help this, I’m going to make some mashed cauliflower and try to eat that instead of all the sweet potatoes. Hoping that helps! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

  • The reason ILY & follow you so closely is bc of that last tip right there! I have earned my best fitness results by NOT depriving myself, but by enjoying myself & keeping my goals in mind. I love that you’re realistic bc it’s so much more encouraging than people who leave no wiggle room for even 100 calories of a “cheat snack” lol keep up the good work, girlfriend!������

  • So I just downloaded Pump Up and finished a customized workout. I’m so pleased with how user friendly this app is… It takes so much stress off my shoulders knowing that this app comes up with great and efficient workouts for me with my options of being at home and only having Dumbbells… Also it tracks calories burned… I’m glad you shared this app with us!!!! It’s awesome and makes me feel better equipped to make a lifestyle change! I also am following you on Pump up and wanted to say that you are an inspirational!! Well…Not just for your fitness advice, but from your health conscious living, your faith and love for God….basically you as a whole person. You are honestly my favorite Youtuber! You are great at what you do… I’m so glad I found genuine flower through the weeds of YouTube.
