Off with my head!

Posted by carla Andrews on Sunday, October 11, 2015, In : Carla's Sugar Free Transformation 
My journey into improved physical health has been amazing. Having being a size 24 at the start of the year to now being a size 14 all my dreams have come true. The result is a confident, sexy lady who can wear almost anything. Shopping is a breeze, no more 'fat' shops for me. The clothes I want to wear, I can. My body matches, for the first time in 20 years how I see myself. Better still my fitness / strength is amazing. My recent 'Good Morning Britian' #ToughMums challenge on the Tough Mudde...

Month 7: Flat Lined

Posted by carla Andrews on Tuesday, July 28, 2015, In : Carla's Sugar Free Transformation 
In the time since my last blog I have plateaued which has been tough. On the one hand I am being positive because I love the new me, and when people ask I comment on my plateau saying that I am in weight maintenance training. On the other hand I have had such a run that it is hard to think that my weight has now stopped falling off. Confessions though, have I been completely sugar free, the answer is no, several sweet treats a week have been popping into my diet. This I know is detrimental to...

30 Days Sugar Free

Posted by Carla Andrews on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, In : Carla's Sugar Free Transformation 
Well what a month, January has flown by and with relative ease. My new sugar free life style has, dare I say been easy?! Well, I certainly didn't expect that!! I had stocked up with headache tablets, and reinforced the locks on the bathroom door so I could hide in the bath tub and die in peace. But, what do you know, not one negative symptom. In fact quite the opposite, a mental alertness from the moment I wake, to the moment I fall asleep. No lethargic afternoons here. It has been great for ...

New Year's Eve, and the countdown begins.

Okay, so the ITV promo clip is out there, and I am 12 hours away from starting a life without sugar, well artificial and the processed stuff. How do I feel? Terrified, truth be told. I love all things naughty, that is what got me into this mess in the first place.

Something has changed in me over the past year. Brought on by dear friends who I have seen struggle with terminal illness without so much of a moan. It has broke my heart to watch their pain, and more so knowing how much they cherish...

Well, I am back in the UK after a week that I will gladly never forget in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. What a journey. This is my second blog detailing my personal challenge of going sugar free. At this point in time I cannot give too much away as it is being aired on TV in 2015. However, what I can tell you is I have spent the past week with some of the most amazing people in my life. From the crew, the lovely ladies whom I am sharing this amazing journey, and the experts. All have had a profo...

Opportunity of a lifetime.

Posted by Carla Andrews on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, In : Carla's Sugar Free Transformation 
Just over two weeks ago I was scrolling through Facebook when I saw a friend had liked an ITV post. The post was entitled 'Are you ready to go sugar free?'. Let's face it, as someone who had always battled with weight issue for the last 17 years, I think it is safe to say that, yes, I was ready. But for me it would not be solely about eating cleaner and healthier, it would mean kicking my bad habits to lose weight and improve my level of fitness. So guess what, I applied. 

By the end of the we...
