Today since there has yet to be a Dragon Laffs Issue we’ll do a Two-fer-One special on Introspections. First the Part 5 installement of our Weirdest Stories of 2010 10 part feature.
The woman who achieved the record of world’s fattest at 700 pounds
Terri Smith, 49, a 700-pound woman is pinned in her sleeping room, incapable to move, stand or roll across by herself – adjusting the fresh world record as the Fattest woman. She suffers severe headaches and needs an MRI scan to check out for a potential brain tumor, unfortunately she is also too big to fit in a scanner or to pass through the doors of a hospital.
Terry has never been a delicate female child. At the age of 7, she weighed almost 70 kilograms. The woman explains that her family was poor which did not allow for her parents to bargain healthy foods. At the age of twenty, Terry weighed about 120 kilograms. Terri wedded husband Myron, whom she looks up to as her guardian spirit, in 1986. At the age of 32 she built up severe arthritis in her knees and was incapable to walking more than a couple of steps at one time. Smith was lastly given an electric wheelchair to get around in. The lack of physical exercise and not having modified her eating caused her weight balloon to the point wherever she could barely stand. Then about three years ago a change in her medicine caused her to gain 91 pounds in 30 days. Those pounds forced her to the bed ridden state she has been in ever since. (Link)
OK now both Impish and I are not little guys and freely acknowledge we carry more than just a few extra pounds of padding so we really DO NOT have room to throw stones.
However this IS supposed to be a humorous introspection and I AM supposed to have a wry comment after each post so here goes….
DAMN! She’s not sitting ’round the house…the house be barely sitting ’round her!
49 states have snow, with Florida the only holdout
Thank god for Global Warming! No telling HOW MUCH snow Hawaii and the Deep South would have received with out it!
