Catrina Raiford’s house had to be bulldozed away because her 453kg frame
had left her bed bound.
She had developed breathing difficulties and needed to be taken to hospital.
Too large to move, she dubbed herself ‘the half-tonne woman’ and vowed to slim down.
Dailymail reports Catrina said about her weight loss:
‘For the first time ever, at the end of December, I worked out for an
hour in the gym. I took a video of it to inspire other people.
on dates now and men ask me for tips for their sisters, aunts, mums.
Still, it’s amazing to think that a few years ago I couldn’t move and
now I am dating.’
For four hours a week now, Catrina works out on the floor. She also enjoys water aerobics.
Delighted by her progress, the world’s former fattest woman plans to
lose even more weight, as she is eager to have 140lb of sagging skin cut
off. She also wants her breasts reshaped – something surgeons will only
do after her excess flab is removed.
