Carole Wright, 54, was unable to put on her own shoes because of her size two years ago. Her weight at 29st 10lb meant she was forced to sit on a brick wall at a barbecue two years ago over fears she could break a plastic garden chair.
今年54岁的Carole Wright，两年前曾经因为太肥胖，连自己穿鞋都困难。她拥有29英石又10磅(约190公斤)的体重一度只能坐在烤炉壁上，以免把塑料凳坐坏。(注：stone， 英石，重量单位，1英石=6.35千克)
But since then, Carole, has turned her life around and shed two-thirds of her body weight to tip the scales at 10st.
"The doctor said, 'If you don't do something about your weight, you're going to be dead in two years.' It was terrifying to hear, but I didn't know where to go for help," she said.
She realised she had to change her lifestyle when she joined a slimming club."Weighing almost 30st was a huge shock and I burst into tears," she said."All I ever did was watch television or sit on the computer. It got to the stage where I wasn't only trapped inside the house, I was trapped in my own body too and I couldn't see a way out."
Carole, who is a petite 5ft 3in, lost a stone in her first week of eating healthy home-cooked meals, and lost a stone every month for the next year.
Carole was named Slimming World's woman of the year 2011."I can do all of the little things everyone else takes for granted like putting my own shoes on, painting my toe nails and walking up stairs in fact, I run up them now," she said。“The last time I weighed 10st I was 10 years old. My only regret is that I didn't do it 35 years ago, but to make up for lost time I plan to grow old disgracefully."
"For the first time in my life I feel normal and it's a great feeling."
