It came to her early 20's when she finally got so sick and tired of feeling bad about herself that she joined the gym where she used to go to school. It was very small but had enough equipment for her to do her bit without anyone seeing! Gradually weight fell off and once she felt more confident she progressed to a larger chained fitness centre called Fitness First, she says “I loved it; I loved exercise and the way it made me feel”.
“I could never go back to being that girl trying her hardest to shine with her personality, but never was seen. I despised myself when looking in the mirror and gorging on food and alcohol in the hope that this will in some way bring comfort. Of course, it just made everything worse.”
“I taught myself the importance of exercise diversity and clean eating. Within a few disciplined months, my body began to transform. I felt amazing! I felt fit physically and emotionally, I had a true sense of accomplishment and well being.”
She also highlights that she wouldn't change a thing as it has made her appreciate things more. Carly is extremely passionate about helping others not only to achieve, but to show that no matter what age or shape you are in, YOU can change for the better.
