UK's Fattest Teen Is Now Half The Size She Used To Be!
Georgia Davis, once dubbed Britain's fattest teenager, is now half the size she used to be, say reports.

The 16-year-old was named fattest teenager in Britain after hitting 33st but she is now 14.6st lighter, courtesy the nine months she spent at a US weight-loss camp.

Davis says when returned home to the UK, her mother couldn't recognize her.

"I used to look at myself in the mirror and cry. Now I smile and say, 'Yeah, I like myself'," the Sun quoted her as saying.

"I like my face and the way my body is shaped. The world is my oyster and I feel I can achieve anything.

"My mum didn't recognize me at the airport. I had to run up and show her it was me, she just cried and cried," she added.

Davis took up two seats as she flew out to North Carolina's 3,600-pound-a-month Wellspring Academy under a special scholarship.

However, she sat in a single seat on her flight home to Aberdare, South Wales, at her new weight of 18.4st.

Davis, 5ft 6in, has even beaten her type 2 diabetes and her crippling aches and pains.
