London, June 23 (ANI): Georgia Davis, once dubbed Britain’s fattest teenager, is now half the size she used to be.

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 recognise 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. (ANI)
