Carole Carson was nearing 60 when it hit her like a load of bricks: It was time to get in shape. She was the textbook example of a couch potato, but she knew if she wanted to be around for years to come she needed a change.
So, she began the process of diet and exercise and documented it for all to see in a local newspaper column. She shed 60 pounds, going from a size 18 to a size 6. And she even inspired more than 1,000 people to lose 8,000 pounds in 8 weeks.
During her journey, she came upon several realizations that have changed thousands of lives — it’s not about diet and it’s not about exercise. It’s about fun. It’s about socializing. It’s about the accountability that comes from working in groups to achieve a common goal.
If being in shape is like work, Carole says your chances of success decrease. But if it’s enjoyable and a part of your life, well, she lost over 60 pounds herself and is loving life. Find out how.
