About Me

  • Carole Carson-The Accidental Catalyst
    Three years ago just before turning 60, I totally remade my life and lost 62 pounds, shrinking from a size 18 to a size 6. Some say I lost 62 pounds of fat. I say I lost 62 pounds of chains. They stopped me from being the person I dreamed of being, the USTA tennis player I am today, the writer I’ve become. I chronicled my makeover in my local newspaper and then wrote a book: From Fat to Fit: Turn Yourself into a Weapon of Mass Reduction. www.CommunityMeltdown.com

    Most surprisingly, my journey inspired a thousand people to join together for the “Nevada County Meltdown.” In two months, we lost 4 tons: one school bus--with passengers! And? I gained a life. Our story was documented on the Today Show, the Early Show, and MSNBC's Countdown. I'm now holding a Community Meltdown contest to offer my services for free to one selected community.

    The enthursiasm of the Community Meltdown has now inspired folks all over the world to get fit together and have fun.

  • Losing over 62 pounds, staying fit, and having fun while maintaining my new life style. Inspiring over 1,000 people in my community to lose over 4 tons in eight weeks.

  • Getting on the scale and weghing 183 pounds at 5'1"

  • To inspire ordinary folks around the world to get fit, stay fit, and have fun. I'm hoping my book "From Fat to Fit" will encourage our global community to maintain a healthy lifestyle and connect within their community. I expect an exciting journey lies ahea.
