Real Life Fitness Stories: Meet Carin

A wellness story from a parent just like you!

September 6, 2019

What is your name and what town are you from?

I'm Carin Carl from Mechanicsburg, Pa.

Who makes up your family?

Me, my husband, my twin girls (age 8), and my son (age 6).

Tell us about your struggles.

I struggled losing weight after having kids (like every other mom)! I was still wearing maternity pants when my son turned one and I wondered for how long could I continue to say that “I just had a baby!”

What was the turning point that made you change the way you care for yourself?

I joined a friend's online health and fitness support and accountability group. I loved it so much that I became an Online Health & Fitness coach, too. It was the perfect way to help me on my journey. I didn’t claim to have it all figured out, but I helped others with what was working for me (online at-home workouts and nutrition programs). We motivated and inspired each other!

How have you implemented your new habits with your family?

I love the at-home workouts because my kids see me taking care of myself. They join me for the workouts, so it’s definitely become a family affair. They see me meal planning and prepping and we discuss how healthy food benefits our bodies. It's great to get the whole family involved. 

*We want to hear from you!*
