- Almost every person who has undergone dramatic weight loss has a tragic story behind the successful result
- The story with Catrina Raiford is no different
- She was once the world's fattest woman weighing about 450Kgs
When Catrina Raiford was a kid she had to go through the trauma of sexual abuse. From that time she used food as a source of comfort. It had been working out for her for years until one day she faced a problem with breathing.
To take her to hospital, workers had to demolish one wall and Catrina said that was symbolic, she understood that she should break down the walls keeping her inside her little world and start changing.
Catrina lost half of her weight –that is 500 pounds – and gained the will to live a happy life. We are sure that her example should be an example to those who think that there is nothing they can do to change their lives.
