For 5 years, 38-year-old Catrina Raiford was been stuck in bed, unable to move whilst holding the title of the world’s fattest woman.
At her peak, Catrina weighed a whopping 431kg before she realised she had to do something.
"When I thought things could not get any worse, my life took a significant turn on one hot summer day when I had trouble breathing and was forced to leave my home. My mother called 911 as I lay in bed struggling to breathe, wondering if this was the end. I was afraid but silently hoping that my suffering might be coming to an end. The rescue crew arrived and was immediately faced with a dilemma; my half-ton body was unable to fit through the door." she recalls.
Catrina began eating a strict diet - eating only lean meats, fresh fruits and healthy vegetables. She also begun and stuck to a light exercise program.
After shedding 229kgs, Catrina is healthier and happier forever! Check out her transformation:
