Wright opened up about her weight loss and getting healthier to Soap Opera Digest in 2016. She says that she got in touch with a fitness coach. "For six months, I'd feel better and then get sick again. I was still really struggling with the end of my marriage [to John Wright, her spouse of 21 years] — feeling better about it, but probably not really dealing with it. And I thought, 'I have to do something.' There was a girl I'd seen a lot on my friends' [social media] pages, a Beach body coach. I reached out to her and said, 'I need to make a major change in my life.'"


She Kept Herself Accountable

In her Soap Opera Digest interview, Wright revealed that her coach had her post workout photos on Facebook each day. She says that this helped her stick with the workouts and motivate her. "My coach had me showing up to a Facebook page to post after-workout pictures and that accountability really got into my head," she explains. "The workout is only 30 minutes a day and no matter how late I worked, I worked out. If I got home at 8:30 or 9 at night, I worked out and posted that picture. If I had to be at work at 6:30, I was up at 5 doing my workout and posting. I was like, 'This really works!' Then I thought, 'Every workout works. So why did this click in differently for my brain?' And it was the coaching page, the community."


She's Positive

Wright is all about having a positive mindset, as she thinks this helps get her through rough times. She shared her mantra in an interview with FBJ Fit. "Whenever I am facing anything challenging, I tell myself, 'I can handle this. I got it!'  I passionately believe that you are what you say you are. If you say you feel tired and terrible all the time, then that is your reality.  Being grateful, and taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions, gives you the power to create the life you want. Much like the character of Carly, I really try to tune into and trust my instincts!"

Wright has found acceptance in herself, and talked about this on Instagram. "This 23-year-old was ashamed of her body and thought if she could lose 10 more pounds she would be perfect and worthy of love," Wright wrote in the caption. "She wasn't focused on the things she loved, just on being skinny enough to be loved. Every day, all day long, these were my thoughts. 30 years later I'm finally discovering how beautiful life is. How grateful I am for a body that has been with me and taking care of me for 51 years. And how much fun life can be when you decide to live! Not sure why I decided to share this today. I just got this picture last night and wanted to hug this young girl and tell her how amazing she is."
