Carole Lewis's Bio:
Carole Lewis is the national director of First Place, the nationís leading Christian weight-loss program. Carole was a member of the original First Place group that began in 1981, and became the national director of the program in 1987.

When Carole attended the First Place orientation in March of 1981, she eagerly anticipated what God might want to do in her life. She had recently seen an old friend that looked great and who reminded her that they were soon approaching 40 years old. Carole determined she did not want to be "fat and 40." She joined First Place and soon lost 20 pounds. Learning how to bring balance to her life, she became a First Place leader to motivate others to achieve this goal.

Carole is a popular speaker and author of the books, Stop It!, The Divine Diet, Choosing to Change, First Place, Today Is the First Day, Back on Track, The Mother Daughter Legacy, and A Thankful Heart (November 2005 release). Carole regularly leads Conferences, FOCUS Weeks, Workshops and seminars across the country in the areas of personal balance, fitness, encouragement and temperament analysis. Her audiences know her as warm, honest and humorous.

Carole and her husband, Johnny, have three children (one deceased) and eight grandchildren. They live on Galveston Bay and enjoy sitting on their pier watching the sunset, where they are joined by their favorite pets, Meathead, Bo and Major. Carole and Johnny love to share their home with others, who also love to go there and eat Johnny's gourmet cooking.
