A PLUS-SIZE gym girl on a quest to get fit and love her body is inspiring thousands of her followers to do the same.

It’s not been the easiest of journeys for this TikToker, but she’s not giving up yet.

Visits to the gym can be tough for plus-size women, but Fattietobaddie’s (@fattietobaddie) devotion is commendable.

The Las Vegas mom of two gets up at the unseemly hour of 4.15 am to get to the gym for a 5 am start.

But for her, despite the tiredness, it is more than worth the huge effort.

“Hi friends come to the gym with me at 5 am," she announces brightly.

“Very tired girl but I’m so glad I showed up for myself," she says.

“Here for curvy girls,” she adds.

She has learned that going to the gym, even the early starts, makes her happy.

“Because I love myself it is time to take care of my body,” she says.
