In real measurements, that's nearly 19 stone. The "no cookies" under the photo I presume was purely incidental...

Real measurements? Metric system is the system of civilized people.

Um, just no. Kilograms are for weighing potatoes. Stones are for weighing people. The Reverend Charles Dodson would back me up, I',m sure.

Re: Jelena Dokic's SHOCKING weight battle: I was 120 kilos! (pic inside)

erm, i was never a fan of dokic's at all, but i find it slightly worrying that some people's reaction to this story is to laugh about it. she has had a thyroid problem which played a key role in her weight ballooning, and quite frankly if there was more to it than that it wouldn't surprise me given what she's been through.

she was morbidly obese, she is now losing the weight and still has some to go. if people think that is funny, that's up to them, but I really don't see how.

No, no. She looks quite healthy again now. This is part of the story of her journey, and being overweight was a symptom of what she went through.

Whether a great writer, logician or even mathematician, you can never trust Anglo saxons to measure systems. Amazing culture with lots of amazing feats, but certainly don't understand about measurements.

OMG. I've seen some fairly recent pictures of hers in which she seemed plumpy but not obese.

No matter what our feelings may dictate, it's not your thyroid that makes you obese. It's calories. Even a slow metabolism only lowers your daily burn rate by a few hundred calories. You can easily adjust for that in your diet.

I'm not saying this to belittle Jelena. I'm actually saying it because such a massive weight gain is usually emotionally rooted somewhere, and that's why we should feel compassion here. We know she hasn't had an easy life.
