    Jesus, it's not that time consuming to eat something, you know, NOT fattening as hell. I suppose she wouldn't know that though. :-S

    Well I wouldn't brand it as "child abuse" but it is pretty reprehensible.

    I think she might think her babies are birds. :confused:

    Take a look at the picture of her – that's 29 stones. ;)

    14lbs = 1 stone, so this woman weighs in at around 406lbs – I think US lbs are slightly different to Englandshire lbs, but you get the picture.

    By way of comparison, I'm a 6'2" boy and I weigh in at a shade under 12 stone – so she weighs two-and-a-half-time what I do. Cripes.

    God I know. I HATE the stone measurement. I've made the adjustment to kilos OK but stone just confuses me (and forces me to use dashboard conversion :p).

    UGH, I didn't even notice that part. GROSS! Yeah, I'm sure chewing their food for them is much easier than just buying them proper food.

    Can Baby Licences be in our future?? :mad: (Hello PRSI forum.)

    6', 14.4 stone = 202 lbs here.

    Oh, and Lee, Leopard has a Dock widget for conversions. Handy little tool.

    Another thing that shocked me that I have never thought about: the article said 17lb toddlers should eat 765 calories a day; that's about how much some girls eat when they diet... :eek: Crazy.

    She's too busy to properly feed them but she has time to pre-chew their food? WTF?

    Egads, that is so sad. Poor kids. Mom must be in denial about how poor nutrition is going to affect them all. It doesn't take a crystal ball to see problems like hypertension, diabetes, etc. in that family's future.

    Isn't that always the way of the tabloid though… behind the shock horror headlines there is usually not much substance.

    I guess she should be congratulated on her weight loss
    She has lost more weight than I weigh! And I'm a 45 yo male… jeezus.

    Well, judging by the cute kids, they got that from their Dad.

    And he might have been one of few men to get the job done. ;)

    Here, yes.

    Eskimos used to do it for their elderly, when they could not longer chew blubber for themselves.

    It's not like she's feeding like birds do!! :eek:

    she has no one to blame but herself for that one..

    what the hell is she doing that keeps her so busy? obviously not working because then she would be able to provide for her family without the help of tax credits..

    Given the choice between believing a woman I've never heard of and know nothing about and anything printed in the Scum I'm going with the woman.

    Umm... given her photo, I don't believe she's being entirely truthful about her eating habits. Has nothing to do with the Sun.

    She's lost 11 1/2 stone in the last year so at least she is going the right way.

    That's what she says. Let's keep an eye on this and see where she is in another year.
