    What some of you don't seem to understand is that once someone gets to that size, it's extremely difficult for them to lose any weight. They're always hungry, unable to exercise and often very bored and lonely. They need a tremendous amount of encouragement and support, not only in eating properly but in dealing with the emotional issues which got them there in the first place. They need our sympathy, not ridicule.

    Jimmy Trumplington, this is not the place to make ill-informed political comments. This has nothing to do with any political party - more personal greed.

    Tuzi not everyone is blessed with the self control you so obviously possess. There are a lot of people who are like Keith; victims of the modern day on-the-go instant gratification culture where we don't have time to prepare healthy food. If anybody is to blame it is the current coalition Conservative/Lib Dem government who seem intent on ignoring the cultural issues which are suppressing the freedoms and choices of people like Keith, ignoring the inevitable consequences and then having the audacity to point the finger at the victims.

    Disgusting!Keith uses the excuse that his mother died when he was 16-mine died hen I was 13.I lived in a children's home and was pushed from pillar to post.I could have given in,but it made me stronger and independant,and determined to look after my body so that I wouldn't die at a young age.Stop making excuses and take control of your own life.

    Keith says the carers are the only people he sees and that he spends 24 hours a day in bed - so who is it that gets his food for him? It must take a mountain of food to keep him that big.
