AUBURNDALE, Fla. - Rosalie Bradford, who held records for being the world's heaviest woman and for losing the most weight, has died. She was 63.
Bradford weighed 1,050 pounds in January 1987, according to the 1994 Guinness Book of Records. She lost 736 pounds to weigh 314 pounds in September 1992, according to the record book.

She died Wednesday at a hospital in Lakeland, about 10 miles from her Auburndale home in central Florida.

Publicist Stephen Nortier said Bradford weighed around 400 pounds just before dying. He said the cause of death won't be known until a medical examiner's report, but Bradford had spent the last year bedridden with complications from having her lymph nodes severed years ago.

At her largest, Bradford was 8 feet wide and took 90 minutes to bathe.

WOW!! I need to lose weight, but thankfully I don't have the problems this poor lady had.

I'll have one while we're waiting for Rushman to turn up in his Black Knight armour!

That is so sad.
Fancy losing all that weight and you probably died of something not connected to weight problems

Wonder if Rushy will be able to resist this one.

OMG! :scared:

She was a whale!

I do feel sorry for people with her problem.. They certainly don't want to be that way, but they can't help it.. so sad.. and with the amount of junk food that we have access to nowadays it gets harder to make the right choices..

No the "old" Rushie is no more. I have been indirectly affected by the wisdom or The Rev Mightbe and decided that I will give this "peace on Earth and goodwill to ALL men (women and hermaphrodites) a try. Have a stupendous weekend.
