Carole Carson's Story

The Fat to Fit community leader explains how she took control of her fitness — and how you can, too

Carole Carson knows a thing or two about weight loss. Fed up after decades of trying and failing to lose weight, she committed herself anew to the task and, at age 60, lost 60 pounds.

She has not only kept the weight off but has emerged as a competitive recreational tennis player and dedicated her post-retirement career to motivating others to follow her healthy lifestyle lead.
