Malissa Jones amazing real life story about why she has gone from being Britain’s Fattest teen to being anorexic appeared in the DAILY MAIL newspaper yesterday and THE DAILY STAR today…
Malissa’s shocking story has already appeared around the world – but just why did this pretty 21 year old get so fat in the first place? And then why did she become anorexic?
Eating problems are incredibly complex and for this story I spoke to several members of the family – including Malissa’s mum, Dawn.
Apart from one, all of Malissa’s family is overweight. Mum Dawn has also had a bypass. When Malissa was just 12, she underwent the same operation and Malissa now says she always believed however fat she got she could fall back on surgery.
However, it wasn’t the fix she hoped for and Malissa says since the op she has never felt well. She has constantly suffered from stomach cramps, sickness and has got one infection after another. She also hated the saggy skin left from the op. Then, she got pregnant and morning sickness worsened her symptoms. Sadly her baby didn’t survive and she now has a phobia about food.
Today her story also appeared in the Daily Star.
Malissa says: “I find getting my story out there very therapeutic and despite having so much publicity I am particularly happy that I have only ever spoken with Alison about it.”
