    this story just depresses the hell out of me.

    It's just sad. I've know a few people with this disorder, they give up on life & figure their fat anyway so lets just keep eating and keep getting fatter.

    I also feel anger as well, like show some self control!
    My goal is to be happy with my life.

    As someone who has dealt with weight and eating problems for at least 2/3 of my life, this freaks me out. I am terrified at the thought that it is humanly possible to get that large. This is horrible.

    She looks so much happier - I just hope that she managed to keep it up when she returns home. I think her mother is a "feeder" who uses food to keep her daughter at home.

    I can't see the pictures but the first one in this thread makes me want to run, not walk, to the gym.

    Yo-yo diet agony of Britain's fattest teenager: Georgia was 33st at 15, 18st at 16... now she's 40 STONE at 17

    By Claire Bates
    Last updated at 4:05 PM on 21st February 2011Britain's fattest teenager, who once lost half her body weight at a U.S. fat camp, has now hit an astonishing 40 stone.
    The distressed 17-year-old said her weight gain depresses her so much that she responds by eating even more.
    Georgia Davis from Aberdare, south Wales, faces an early death unless she takes urgent action to tackle her weight. But Ms Davis says she is struggling to even face up to her problem.

    Georgia Davis, from Aberdare, south Wales, when she weighed 34stone. She finds it difficult to face up to the reality of her size

    The 5ft 6in teenager said: 'I try not to think about it too much, otherwise I panic and it makes my eating problem worse - but I do know it's serious.'
    HOW MUCH GEORGIA EATS A DAY


    BREAKFAST

    Two bowls of cornflakes, 2 slices of toast, 2 glasses of coke

    LUNCH

    Fish & chips (with 2 portions of fish), 4 slices of bread and butter, 2 glasses of coke


    EVENING MENU

    Spaghetti bolognese with cheese, 1 packet of biscuits

    SNACKS

    2 snickers


    Miss Davis, who covers up her bedroom mirror so she can avoid seeing herself, only manages to get out of the house once a week and regularly eats junk food for lunch.

    'Of course people stare, but I don't care what they think any more - I'm used to it,' she told The Sun.
    Just a few years ago the outlook was far brighter for the teenager. In August 2008, a 33st Georgia was told by doctors to 'lose 20 stones or die'.
    Spurred into action, Georgia attended a £3,600-a-month Wellspring diet academy in the UK for nine months, during which time she shrank to 18st and beat her Type 2 diabetes.

    She was seen by behavioural coaches, food psychologists and fitness trainers and encouraged to walk 10,000 steps every day.

    She returned to the UK in June 2009 to look after her mother Lesley, 55, who has a heart condition.
    At the time the energised student was optimistic about her chances of success and vowed to drop a further seven stone.
    She said:‘I used to look at myself in the mirror and cry. Now I smile and say, “Yeah, I like myself”.
    'I like my face and I like the way my body is shaped. The world is my oyster and I feel I can achieve anything.'
    But today Georgia admitted the omens were not promising when she returned home.
    'When I arrived my mum said she hadn't had time to prepare any healthy food so we had fish and chips instead,' Georgia said.
    'For that moment on, I had a niggling feeling that things weren't going to work out.'
    The teenager appeared on TV show Good Morning America in 2009 after losing 15st - but she has since piled it all back on

    Ms Davis said she had enjoyed playing sport in America but that the same facilities weren't available in her home town and she couldn't afford to join the local gym.
    'I soon found I was becoming less mobile, just like before,' she said.
    The youngster has strenuously defended herself from accusations that she is lazy, although she admits her weight gain is her own fault.

    She said at the camp she had been in a controlled environment where she consumed 1,500 calories a day. However, at home she felt isolated as neither her family nor her friends were sticking to a healthy eating plan.
    'This is my problem and I know I have to solve it again,' she told The Sun.
    'But I'm only human and I'd be lying if I said I didn't need support.'
    At her slimmest, Georgia had a normal life expectancy of 80 years, but at her current weight she is not expected to live past 20.

    Georgia said she wants more help from the NHS, saying her problem is no different from drug or alcohol addiction.
    The troubled teenager said: 'I know I'm probably eating myself to death again but at the moment I can't face up to it.'

    Georgia was so delighted with her weight loss in 2009 that she shared her story on GMTV. However, she was unable to keep a healthy regime going

    Georgia Davis: 40 stone at 17

    By SHARON HENDRY
    Published: 21 Feb 2011

    DESPERATE Georgia Davis has become Britain's first quarter-of-a-ton teenager – after topping FORTY STONE at just 17.

    The Sun first highlighted the youngster's tragic plight 2½ years ago when she was 33st.


    Interview ... Sun's Sharon Hendry with Georgia Davis

    A US weight-loss camp slimmed her to 18st at 16 – but she has since yo-yoed back up again.
    Georgia told last night how her huge weight gain leaves her so sad that she wants to eat even MORE.
    She now tips the scales at a shocking 40st 6lbs – more than seven stones heavier than when The Sun first revealed her incredible battle of the bulge 2½ years ago.


    Big problem ... Georgia Davis with her mum in 2008

    Once again facing the prospect of death without dramatic weight loss, Georgia said: "I try not to think about it too much, otherwise I panic and it makes my eating problem worse – but I do know it is serious.
    "I've covered over the mirror in my bedroom, but there is one in the bathroom I have to look into each morning when I wash and brush my teeth and it makes me feel so sad.
    "Sometimes the sadness makes me eat more, but sometimes I just cry."


    Proud ... Georgia Davis after she's shed 15st at US camp

    Georgia, of Aberdare, South Wales, was declared Britain's fattest teen when we revealed in August 2008 how she weighed 33st at just 15.
    A nine-month stint at Wellspring – a US weight-loss camp – brought her new-found confidence and access to some of the world's leading childhood obesity experts.
    After a rigorous diet and exercise programme, she returned to Wales 15st lighter in June 2009 – ready to realise her dreams of going to college and meeting a boyfriend.


    Shock ... teenager now and her weight on scales

    But she struggled again after returning home and yesterday had to stand on a weighbridge designed for industrial materials to discover her true size after out-weighing every NHS scale at her local hospital.
    At 566lbs Georgia weighs the same as a Harley-Davidson Sportster 48 motorcycle, 619 tins of baked beans (415g size), 113 standard red house bricks or four super-lightweight boxers like Amir Khan.
    The teenager told how her weight battle took a decisive wrong turn on the very first day she returned home from the Wellspring Academy.
    She said: "I'd been following a programme of healthy eating in the camp where I'd been living in North Carolina, America, and I'd learned to enjoy low-fat foods like salads, bagels, yoghurt and even buffalo meat.
    "I was really looking forward to trying it all out back home but, when I arrived, my mum said she hadn't had time to prepare any healthy food so we had fish and chips instead.
    "From that moment on, I had a niggling feeling that things weren't going to work out."
    Georgia added: "I'd also learned to love exercise in America, using a gym and playing proper sports like tennis and basketball for the first time. But back home, it soon became obvious it wasn't going to be easy.
    "The same facilities weren't available in Aberdare and I couldn't easily afford to join the local gym. I soon found I was becoming much less mobile, just like before."
    Without the full support of her mum Lesley, 55, and stepdad Arthur – and with no long-term follow-up package from Wellspring or the NHS – Georgia's old habits quickly returned.
    She succumbed to the pressures of looking after her heart-patient mum – for whom she has been a registered carer since ten – and soon became a virtual recluse inside the family's cramped two-bed semi.
    Nowadays her only exercise involves aiming darts at a board from a chair placed in the hallway.
    And the strict 1,500-calorie-a-day intake that Wellspring nutritionists prescribed has long been replaced with the old demons of cake, chocs, crisps and endless loaves of bread – washed down with bottles of Coke.

    Georgia, now a gigantic size 36, said: "I'm finding getting in and out of bed very difficult at the moment so I usually get up around 10am. I usually just stay in my room and watch TV for an hour or so until I find the will to face the day.
    "Breakfast is usually a bowl or two of cornflakes with two slices of toast and two glasses of Coke.
    "After that, I usually try to help mum around the house, but I get very tired and out of breath quickly at the moment.
    "I'm only managing to get out the house about once a week when I try to go to town on the bus. Of course people stare, but I don't care what they think any more – I'm used to it.
    "We have fish and chips for lunch quite often and usually I eat two portions. Otherwise, it's sandwiches with six slices of bread and crisps.
    "I find snacks harder to resist as the day goes on and I often eat two Snickers bars at a time. At night I eat a main meal, then more biscuits, crisps and chocolates as I get bored.
    "Afterwards, I feel terrible as I know I'm letting myself down, but I don't even care what I look like. I'll just put on any clothes that fit me."
    In addition to her food troubles, Georgia is continuing to smoke – a combination which could cause her Type 2 Diabetes to re-surface.
    Yet despite being back on death row, she blames no one but herself.
    Georgia said: "This is my problem and I know I have to solve it again just like I have in the past.
    "But I'm only human and I'd be lying if I said I didn't need support."

    Maybe try Diet Coke for breakfast instead?

    Her mother is jealous and sabotaging her. She needs to get away from that environment before she kills herself.
