I wasn't even looking for this, but stumbled up on it in my random web surfing.

Wow. I know I've seen the TLC or Discovery specials on a couple of them.

The guy from England, (no.1 in your list) did a programme for the tv, on the run up to his by pass surgery and beyond. After the surgery and after some weight loss... It was so good to see him, being able to 'walk' down the street. If I remember rightly, he also started a relationship with a girl. The shocking thing to me was, home helps used to go in and do his cleaning, shopping and feed him - what is the system thinking about. They FED him food that continued his weight gain. People who are in danger of reaching obesity, should be helped BEFORE they get to this level - in this case particularly - he ASKED for help when he was 400 pounds.... If itnwas because if money thatnthey didn't help - it must have cost far more NOT to help him.

this is so beyond sad! Not just the people who got to this horrific weight, but the people in their lives who enabled them to do it. If you're that big, someone is going to the grocery store for you....

Wow, that's so sad! It blows my mind that some people actually WANT to be fat or get fatter! I don't think I'll ever understand!

There are no words to describe these people and I find it mind-boggling that the human body can actually get that big. Doctors are warning people today that they can die of heart failure if they are just 30-40 lbs. overweight. I wonder what they say to someone who is 1,300 lbs. overweight?

I actually know a woman who made herself gain weight so that she could qualify for disability benefits instead of going to work. Her plan failed as her application was denied. Now, she is stuck with medical problems and appears unwilling to do what it takes to get healthier.

Sometimes I feel like I am as big as these people. It makes me wonder why anyone would bring them all this food they eat. I mean, obviously most of them can't move, so who in their right mind is bringing them all this food? I do feel sorry for them to be honest. I think there is something wrong with them emotionally or mentally.
