    Desperate brides try feeding tube diet

        Jennifer Derrick's weight had crept to 159 pounds from 125, and she knew she would not fit into her grandmother’s wedding dress.

    “Women were smaller back then, and there was nothing to let out,” said Ms. Derrick, of Rockford, Ill. She took prescription pills, had vitamin B shots and made weekly $45 visits to a Medithin clinic in Janesville, Wis. When she married on March 18, she was back to 125 pounds; the gown, from 1938, fit perfectly.

    I saw that disgusting piece on ABC news too.  Gross.  I particularly "love" (sarcasm) the part about ketosis and kidney problems.

    wow, and I thought getting surgery on leg bones for 'height' was bad yikes rather sad that people can't accept themselves as they are sad the 'Man Upstairs' doesn't make mistakes. hmm
