Very Skinny Woman Loses Weight Loss Contest To Sri Lankan Woman
Woman so skinny she can't find clothes to fit in Florida

Coral Gables, Fla.
A Florida woman who entered a weight loss contest to try to win a trip to the Canary Islands, lost the contest when she was beaten by a woman from Sri Lanka. The woman, shown above, who did not want to be identified, told reporters she had lost 226 pounds in less than one year but the Sri Lankan woman had lost 240 pounds. No photos were available of the Sri Lankan winner who died just after the contest results were announced, from severe dehydration and starvation. Essentially, her principal organs just stopped functioning.
The losing Florida woman had a Thanksgiving feast to celebrate going off her 300 calorie a day diet. She ate only lettuce, cucumbers and celery stalks for most of the year she was dieting. She told reporters she had no regrets except men did not notice her any longer because her breasts had shrunk. During the year of dieting she underwent breast implant surgery to correct the problem but says she now thinks this may have contributed to her loss. She formerly wore a size 38 DD cup but now buys her bras in the young misses department, for girls under 16.
