French Canadian d.fayou’s (tiktok.com/@d.fayou”>@d.fayou) posts have delighted her 256,000 followers.

She regularly comes across as joyous as she dances and shares her different food recipes on her platform, alongside her fitness journey.

In a recent post, she showed viewers her preparation for a session at the gym.

This involved getting dressed, applying moisturizer, fixing her hair, and adding a touch of mascara and lipstick.

However, she showed particular dedication to this trip to the gym because it involved trekking through snow, but she seemed unbothered.

Once there she got on the treadmill and did her thing.

In her quiet way, d.fayou has inspired other plus-size women among her followers to have some self-belief and get fit too.

“Focus on yourself and surround yourself with people who uplift you – not those who tear your down,” she said.

Her post has had over 94,000 likes and nearly a thousand comments, and an awful lot of love and respect.

Commenters ran out of superlatives, but there was admiration all around.
