About GYSB™

In order to begin a successful journey to overall wellness, you must set realistic goals. There is no special cleanse, magic pill or perfect diet.  The only formula that will work is a positive attitude, patience, determination and support. 

When I lost my 52lbs, people who hadn’t seen me for quite some time would ask: “WHAT DID YOU DO!?!” I’d smile and say, “I got my sexy back and you should Get Your Sexy Back too! You should GYSB®!  It was a catchy phrase packed with a lot of meaning and people embraced it immediately.

GYSB® (Get Your Sexy Back) is more than an acronym or slogan: it’s a lifestyle. GYSB® is a movement that promotes a holistic approach to wellness. This movement encourages physical wellness through regular exercise, self-empowerment through setting measurable goals for self, work and family and determining realistic ways of actualizing set goals. GYSB® also supports being kind to the environment, being actively involved in efforts to build/uplift community, showing consistent respect and love for others, and being spiritually grounded. My hope is that as you transform your outer appearance (or work on maintaining the great shape that you are already in) you will put just as much effort into making sure you feel as good as you look.  Your positive words should align with your actions.  You should also be interacting with others in a positive/kind way and embracing all of the beauty that is here on earth for you to enjoy.

Whether you are in maintenance mode or just beginning your weight loss journey, GYSB® is for YOU! There is ALWAYS room for improvement. Our physical and spiritual selves should always be in a constant state of evolution. This is the only way we grow and become BETTER.

You can get the support you need by becoming a fan of GYSB® on Facebook.  On both the fan page and the website, you’ll find recipes, workout tips, articles on wellness, new/creative exercises and even our personal weight loss testimonies. We set challenges that take us out of our comfort zone and strengthen our will/determination to choose healthier food and drink options, stick to scheduled workout plans, practice being more environmentally friendly and involved in our communities.

Start your GYSB™ journey today! LIVE your life!

    how do i get started?

    • GYSB

      Hi sharon,
      Are you on FB? If yes, “like” the GYSB page. The movement is in place to provide encouragement/support to men and women who are striving to be their BEST. In all areas of their life. While the daily focus may be on healthy eating and fitness, it is a movement that promotes overall wellness (mind, body, spirit, community connectedness). The way you get started is by determining what it is that YOU want to do for yourself. For example, if it’s to lose weight you need to take an honest assessment of where you are and decide what steps you are going to take to move in the direction that will help you meet your goal (you have to set the realistic goal). By staying connected to the fb page it is our hope that people will be inspired by status updates, comments from other GYSBers, posted recipes and inspirational pics and 30 day challenges. I hope this helps. and I hope you get started today 🙂 thanks for visiting the website ~Carla/GYSB

    • Hi Ruby,
      I apologize for the late response. I totally understand how you’re feeling right now (having been equally as frustrated with my weight a few years ago). The great thing is you sound like you’re ready to make some permanent changes. You just need to focus on getting started. There are a lot of people who have written and asked me similar questions in search of tips that may help them lose and maintain. I took all of those questions and put them in an ebook in hopes that it will help people who have been inspired by my story and want to know how I got started and how I’m able to maintain. The book will be available this week. I hope that you will benefit from some of the information I’ve placed in the book. I will post on my GYSB Facebook page when it’s ready this week. Again, I’m sorry for taking so long to respond. I am just now checking my messages. Happy New Year to you! I see healthy, fit and even sexier in your future. You/We got this girl!
