World’s fattest woman targets weight loss
The fattest woman in the world has launched a weight loss bid so she can undergo a medical scan.
Currently, 50-stone Terri Smith, from Ohio in the US, is too big to fit in an MRI machine despite needing a scan to determine the cause of her frequent headaches, the Sun reported.
Ms Smith told the newspaper that her weight gain started at an early age and was never considered a problem as her whole family ate high-calorie “soul food”.
“We never watched what we ate at all and we didn’t know what was healthy and what wasn’t,” she said.
Last week, weight loss expert Jenny Caven, a spokeswoman for Slimming World, said that an increase in obesity levels has caused people to underestimate how bad their own weight problems are.
