"Thin" article in The Guardian / "Thin" website updated

Thin was featured in The Guardian a couple of weeks ago. I've included pictures of the article under the cut. Some of the content is identical to that of the People Magazine article, however, unlike the People article, this one also includes Kathy and Shantall's story.

Probably not safe for dial-up users as the images are quite large.
These images may also be triggering.

Also, the Thin website www.thindocumentary.com has been updated, and includes character introductions, deleted scenes, experts from the book, and even an educational guide that can be downloaded.  It's a really good site, so go check it out.

The deleted scenes are quite good, so it's a shame they didn't make the final cut :/
I guess they'll be on the DVD though.

Too Big to Walk?

"Eight seriously obese people have been given an extraordinary chance to lose weight, get fit and change their lives in a marathon 500-mile walk from the south coast of England to Edinburgh."


Tonight at 9pm, the documentary "Too Big to Walk?" will be shown on Channel 4 (uk).

I just thought this was a good place to let everybody know about it, as it looks like an interesting insight into the why of these peoples old lifestyles. It's kinda related to ed's as they look at "psychological as well as physiological factors stopping people from getting thin and staying that way", and I can't imagine how somebody could get so dangerously overweight without some form of eating disorder or other medical condition.

Hope my sentences make sense today, my head is foggy o_o''
