About Me


Welcome to my journey. My name is Carla and I’m 30 years old starting a new career as a teacher, and trying to get fit at the same time. I’m not going to lie, I’m currently in terrible shape physically and my BMI is in the obese range. I have had a problem with my weight and my appearance almost as long as I can remember. I first became aware of my size when I was six years old. I went on weight watchers for the first time when I was 11. By the time I was 19 I weighed in at 208lbs, and 5’7″, I made a change in my lifestyle that same year and dropped down to 163 with healthy eating and lots of walking. When I was 22 I took a desk job and the weight crept on. A couple of years later I started college and my weight exploded reaching approximately 220lbs by the end of my first year. Ever since I have yo-yoed between 202lbs and 235lbs. I am dedicating myself to positive change, mental, physical, and emotional and I want to share it.

I have a passion for: life long learning, hiking, travelling, friends, family, and good food. I am sharing my quest as I transition to a new career, with a challenging job hunt, and my day to day life eating food and getting fit.
