One woman who was left bed-bound for five years has lost an incredible 36 stone.


Catrina Raiford, 38, was formerly the fattest woman in the world, and was heavier than a small car, weighing in at 500lbs.

She gained weight after suffering sexual abuse as a child, and seeking comfort in food.

She now claims to feel like a new woman, and says that she plans to lose more weight, along with the ten stone of excess skin currently left on her body.


Catrina lost the weight though a strict diet, only eating meat, fruit and veg in a day, cutting out the calorific treats altogether.

Catrina, who lives in Tampa, Florida, said:

I’m so much happier now and feel so confident.

I was in bed for so long that now I’ve lost the weight I just want to be free.

I love running around, going to the gym three or four times a week and keeping fit.

I’ve just been diagnosed with cellulitis (an infection of the skin) after injuring my leg at the gym.

Doctors say that I need to lose weight to stop injuring myself and having complications, but this heavy skin makes it so hard.

She claimed that the excess skin is weighing her down, and making her existing medical issues worse – and keeping her bed ridden at times.

The 38-year-old has now set up a GoFundMe page to raise the $10,000 needed for plastic surgery to remove the skin.
