My 6 Month 30 Pound Weight Gain Story

I decided to start putting on muscle and gaining weight back in June. In the past 6 months, I have gained almost 30 pounds. It’s been a long process, but I’ve finally managed to put on some extra mass. I learned a lot along the way. These are my 6 month weight gain results. If you’re interested in putting on weight, you should find these tips helpful.

For the first time in my life, I’m actually happy with the way that I look. I have gained 30 pounds and put on a lot of muscle mass. My body fat percentage is low and I’m ready for a cut soon.

    Keltie. As always thank you for you honesty and common sense. I bought wide fitting New Balance shoes to run. Now I’ve had an injection for the arthritis in my big toe the swelling has gone down and my shoes are too wide. I can’t win!

    I am getting back into the gym post baby! I also used to compete in bodybuilding so I want to enjoy lifting again and I desperately need a good weightlifting shoe or even something that could do a little cardio and weight lifting so I can embrace some me time and get back to feeling athletic!

    Hey Keltie! I love your videos, and currently, I’m coming to terms with easing out of my time playing soccer. I’m graduating high school and have been playing since age 4, and after my high school season ends, I really want to get more into powerlifting! I think it would be so cool to have more female representation in that area, and I would love to get a pair of lifting shoes since I’ve never had something like that before. Thanks for considering! Keep up the great work❤️

    First thing: I hope you realize that this community is a reflection of who you are. You put all this positivity and kindness out there and people who feel the same end up following you so I hope you take time to pat yourself on the back for the work you've done.

    Second: I'm in the market for weight lifting shoes! I didn't even know until recently that you want flat shoes to lift and I assumed I was so unstable in my squat because of my form and I just couldn't figure out what was missing, I think it's a shoe problem. I was lifting in runners and apparently that's less than helpful!

    It's great hearing more about your story, Keltie, so thanks for sharing! I would love to win a pair of running shoes – I love running but my main running route is all concrete – making it harder to protect my joints without proper shock-absorbing shoes which I have been on the lookout for : )

    It's very hard, I thought impossible, to find/follow influencers/content creators that were REAL people/acted like REAL people. Everyone says they're for everyone, and every body, but honestly YOU'RE one of the VERY few who actually acts on it. I hope you know we appriciate you just as much as you appriciate us. (And as for the question- )I don't know what shoe I need. I'm smack dab in the middle of a mourning-weight-loosing/ life-improving exercise regimine, and I'm getting to the point where I can stand longer workouts, but my feet can't lol I do a lot of cardio b/c I have hypotention and tachycardia that we're improving/healing with exercise. (Under the supervision of a cardiologist.) As well as trying to get over wall I hit b/c og my PCOS. I guess I just need more support- but I don't know enough about shoes to know what.

    I'm from alberta and it's so true. The fitness mindset is just not there. It's sad because it wasn't until I moved to the US that I ACTUALLY started training and feel like my progress was stunt because of good ol berta town

    Thank you for this! As someone who has struggled with binge eating and purging through exercise, I’ve always thought the crazy cheat day videos were a potential gateway or outlet (for some) to disordered eating. I’ve been watching your videos since 2018. You helped me heal my relationship with exercise by reminding me that exercise isn’t punishment – it’s for your physical and mental health and it can/should be fun! I set a goal to move daily and I adopted the mentality of “if I move, I win!” I’ve been exercising consistently without a punishment mindset for 4 years now. My relationship with exercise has completely transformed and a huge part of it is because of your videos! I’m now working on healing my relationship with running (that was my ideal way to purge through exercise in the past). Again, your 30 day running challenge inspired me and I have set out to do the same! I would love some help finding the right shoe. I have high arches and my feet roll inwards a little bit when I run. I would love any advice or to be a part of your giveaway! Thank you again for being an inspiration and someone who approaches your lifestyle with grace and flexibility! Much love 💕

    Keltie, I just want to say "thank you!". Thank you for sharing your wisdom. My view of fitness and healthy movement has changed drastically in the last few years due to your voice always in the background. I now screen programs, recommendations, solutions, etc., with a, "What would Keltie say about this?" approach first. And it's truly amazing how that changes the fitness information I am willing to take in. So while I may not be where I want to be physically years postpartum, I know how to go about getting there while accepting myself along the way and what information will help–or hinder–that progress. Thank you for being willing to share! Your corner of the internet is invaluable! Happy Easter!

    I’ve been living for these unboxings 😍 I lost myself after sports as well, definitely fell into binge eating. Had a hard time getting out until I found weight lifting. Crazy how growing up you think all I’m ever going to do it’s sports and then when you have to stop you are completely lost 😔
    I’d love some new trainers 👟

    What do you recommend of HIIT training- things like kickboxing or agility work? I have Metcons for lifting, but don’t feel they have enough cushion for HIIT. I use Brooks shoes for walking/running, but don’t feel they have enough support for side-to-side agility. I’m at a loss. Any advise would be greatly appreciated;)

    I actually need a good boxing shoe w/ ankle support! I thought about bodybuilding in my early 20s (you're right, it seems everyone was heading that way then) and I'm glad I didn't in hindsight. It's def not for me! I teach yoga & pilates & aerobics & bootcamps and I've run marathons but right now my focus is on getting my black belt 🙂

    I used to run a few times a week, but since Covid started in March of 2020 and gyms closed, I've been running every single day – or I was until I injured my knee four months ago. Once my knee heals and I can start exercising more fully, I'm really stoked to try to find a healthier balance between running, hiit, and weights and get off the fitness plateau I've been stuck on for a few years. I'd love any recommendations for running shoes, especially on a budget (I just finished grad school and the university took all my money). Thanks so much for your channel!

    I'm super curious about the lululemon shoes, they do look plain but if anyone's going to do a good athletic shoe, it's lululemon 😍

    I love your videos so much. Lately I have been trying to get into weight lifting. I really want to work on building muscle. As I am only 17 and a girl, I want to show to people my age and people around me that muscle isn’t masculine especially on a girl.

    Hi Keltie! Just a few months ago I rediscovered my love for fitness and have brought it back into my life. And, to my surprise I fell in love with something I’ve always hated, running! Haha your last video inspired me and I love this new series you are sharing with us.

    I used to weightlift and I’m starting to get back into it. I miss it so much but am afraid to fall back into burn out. I would love to know your input on this, although you did mention a bit in a previous video.

    Thank you so much for your content, I look forward to your uploads!!💖💖💖

    In regards to the giveaway, I feel like weightlifting shoes would be great since all I own are cushion, running shoes 😂

    Hey Keltie!! I need shoes for weight training 💪 & running shoes. 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️ I have to build muscle and lose fat after suffering from PTSD. I let myself go unfortunately and I'm currently trying to get back on track.

    Keltie I really support your life of growth and self discovery. I think life is filled with learning how to grow and accept who we are and what we look like. Growing & learning happens every day. 🪴🪴🪴 It's the never ending story of our lives.

    Well, I would love to go running (and have shoes for that) but I hate the start, it just doesn’t come to me, so I walked my running shoes down walking my dog. Ich would love callisthenics, but I don’t feel strong enough. What I do is soccer but I had to press pause, since covid took a toll on me and I need to get healthy first, but walking is just my favorite exercise and I will hopefully start to run (you’re idea of one song sounds amazing) so maybe I’ll start this in may
