Lorrie Hellcat Bamford came to terms with her need to lose a lot of weight when her doctor said there was a chance she would not see her kids grow up. She identifies herself as an “emotional eater,” something many other people on the same journey can relate to. Together with “From Fat To Finish Line,” Bamford shares her honest, raw story of running herself from more than 300 pounds, to running for 40 seconds, to running a mile, to finishing so many races. Watch her moving story and check on From Fat To Finish Line on Facebook.
