-BMI 74…that just means more for you to love
[quote] Teenager Georgia Davis weighs 462 pounds, has type 2 diabetes and can barely walk.
At 5 feet 6 inches tall, the 15-year-old said she eats more than 13,000 calories a day.
In September, Georgia will fly to North Carolina to enroll in Wellspring Academy, a school that specializes in fitness and weight loss. Doctors say if she does not lose weight, she will die.
“It’s like a drug,” Davis said. “Some people choose heroin but I’ve chosen food and itï¿½??s killing me.”
Davis was encouraged to try the program in North Carolina because her doctors believe she is too young for weight-loss medication or gastric bypass surgery.
Davis said she turned to food for comfort after her father died from emphysema.
In an average day, she eats several processed ready-made meals, several sandwiches, peanuts, sausages, chips, chocolate and chunks of cheese ï¿½?? washed down with bottles of Coke or milk.
“I can’t even walk more than a few steps without getting out of breath and a few months ago I developed type 2 diabetes,” she said. “When I look in the mirror, I feel sad and go to my bedroom and cry.”[/quote]
