True--the scenario I've heard of is where someone gets to the point where (s)he can walk with difficulty, then has some kind of health problem (like breaking an ankle or something) that causes her to become bedridden. She gains more weight while bedridden and by the time her health problem is cured, finds she can no longer walk.

That's what happened to the actress who played Gilbert Grape's Mom in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape".
