Meet Carole Carson, author of FROM FAT TO FIT Just before turning 60, Carole Carson decided to reinvent herself. After chronicling her transformation from butterball to butterfly in weekly newspaper articles, Carole invited others to join the fun. Inspired by her example, more than a thousand ordinary people teamed up to lose nearly 4 tons of fat in two months. Carole's multifaceted background includes business leadership, marketing, public relations, event planning, writing, training and consulting to businesses and nonprofits. She drew upon the full range of her experience to make the northern California community fitness event successful. Carole's mission is to communicate her empowering message: "You and your friends can have fun, get fit and lose weight!" Carole writes a featured newspaper column, and her articles are available here. She has appeared on NBC's Today show, CBS's The Early Show, MSNBC's Countdown, CNN news and national radio. Besides teaching and consulting, Carole has produced a weekly community television show, The Tipping Point, and a reality show, Go Fat to Fit.
