If you read the articles that have been written about this poor girl over the years you'll see that her family has issues of their own that appear to have contributed to her condition.To gain that much weight in such a short amount of time must be the result of severely disordered eating. The fact that she was too big to leave the house means that someone must have been helping her get food, what are they thinking? If she were an alcoholic you wouldn't just keep buying her alcohol.
It's so so sad, but I honestly can't understand how people around her allowed this to happen.
After reading the article over at HuffPo, I'm going to have to agree with pretty much all of this.This really is unfortunate. This teenager was already handling responsibilities that I, as an adult, would find difficult. She needs love and support to develop a healthy relationship with food, and it sounds like she isn't getting it. And on top of all of that, she's dealing with headlines about her weight.
Regardless of whether she loses the weight, I hope that she can find happiness within herself.
Frankly, given Georgia's repeated requests for help, and her virtual immobility over the past year (or two?) I suspect at least one adult in the household (the mother) of Munchausen's by proxy.After reading the article over at HuffPo, I'm going to have to agree with pretty much all of this.
Fish and chips are good, but it's like everything else in life, eating them 7 days a week isn't good for you. There's got to be balance in life. Does Britain not have a food stamp-like program for poor families?Frankly, given Georgia's repeated requests for help, and her virtual immobility over the past year (or two?)

When she had just returned from the US having got down to 18st (250lbs) and her mother served her fish + chips, claiming there was nothing else in the house - that was very telling, IMO.
