Here Is How Carlie Lost Half Her Weight In Two Years

Carli Jay is an inspiring woman from Sydney, Australia who managed to lose almost half her weight in just two years. But it wasn’t until she was 28 years old that she realized it was a time for a change. One day she woke up with a tingling feeling and was not getting any circulation across her body as she slept. After her wake up call, she slimmed down from  279 pounds to an amazing 138 pounds. Also, Carli did it the old fashion way by reducing her calories intake.

“I loved a mix of healthy and unhealthy foods when big, but I was eating 4000 calories a day,” Carli tells New Idea.

“I used to snack a lot, have seconds, and dessert everyday.” After realizing that that’s way too many calories the 31-year-old dropped 300 calories a week. She also started exercising for just 20 minutes every second day.

“I swapped out a lot of white starches and carbs with better versions, and did the same with processed foods and unnatural sugars,” she says, explaining that she cut back on sugary drinks, frappuccinos and alcohol too.

Carlie now loves the idea of working out, and does it all;  cycling, hill walking, swimming, yoga and dancing. But not only that, she admitted that being vegan the last three years also helped her lose all those pounds.

“I still have beef or salmon on the odd occasion – maybe once a month – and sometimes eggs, but the rest is all natural, unprocessed, plant based foods” she says.

If you are on your own weight-losing journey here’s what Carlie recommends:

“Stop thinking of weight loss as numbers on a scale. This method equals failure.Think about changing your lifestyle and bad habits for a better body and overall health for years to come. Do it for YOU! Not for anyone else, not for a boyfriend or girlfriend, not because of social media, or comparing yourself to other peoples shape and size. Do it because YOU want to do it, to become the best fittest version of you that you can possibly become. And that will be different for everyone.” Carlie advises.

She will also tell you to be realistic with yourself and have patience. “Don’t expect results overnight, or even in a week or two! Be realistic about this – it’s a journey not a race,” Carli says. “Set yourself small goals monthly to achieve in order to get to a bigger over goal. Don’t rush it and try to change your entire life over night trying to run marathons and under eating – you’ll just end up hating the journey and give up.Introduce small new habits in your life over time. Even adding 15-30 minutes of exercise per day and eating better is a start from where you were. Over time your fitness levels and cardiovascular strength will start to improve and you can increase your activity and healthier eating,” she says.
