Carla Abellana Goes Into Circuit Training To Get Her Desired Weight, Now Works Hard To Maintain It

CARLA ABELLANA is now addicted to working out in the gym. “Noong una, hirap na hirap ako but I have to do it for health reasons,” she says. “Talaga namang I gained so much weight and people kept on reminding me about it then. Noong una, dedma pa ako but when I saw myself on screen, I realized it’s true, so I went into circuit training last year. Since then, I’ve lost something like 20 lbs. Now, I’ve achieved my desired weight and I’m trying my best to maintain this for healthy living.”

In her hit primetime show, “Because of You”, Carla as Andrea gets worried because her dad, Rey PJ Abellana as Conrado, wants to have a traditional “pamanhikan” where Gabby Concepcion as Jaime will come

with his mom, Celia Rodriguez as Feliza, to formally ask for the hand of Carla. But as expected, Celia as Feliza refuses to do this because she has always been at odds with Conrado. Secretly, Carla and Gabby arrange for their respective parent to meet in a restaurant, but this only ended in disaster with the two oldies throwing things at each other. This is much to the delight of Jackielou Blanco as Lucille who is so happy that the wedding of Gabby and Carla suffered another hitch. But the irate oldies get sober when Carla nearly falls off the roof of the building where they’re meeting and finally, the “pamanhikan” pushes through.
