Britain’s Fattest Teenager Loses 280 Pounds

Posted on: February 25, 2009

matilda2Britain’s fattest teenager, Malissa Jones, has recently lost 280 pounds by having surgery. Just 17 years old, she is the youngest person in the world to have a stomach bypass. She was hooked on eating and had horrific eating habits since she was two. She saw eating as a comforting thing to do and after her parents’ divorce, she got even fatter. She ate 15,000 calories a day and liked to eat chocolate, junk food and often gorged down thawed raw burgers. She was so obese that she was almost unable to move and needed extra oxygen while she slept to prevent her from dying.  She even suffered from heart disease called angina, which is mostly only associated with older people. She got to a point where if she did not lose any weight, she would die. So she decided to have a massive operation which was extremely risky, but if she did not choose to do it, she would die for sure. Miraculously, she survived through the operation and now has a much more healthy diet.
