Cherry weighs less than half as much as boyfriend ‘Ball’ but their attraction is still strong
The old saying “size doesn’t matter” is certainly true for Cherry and Ball from Thailand.
The pair (Cherry’s full name is Siripa Boonraksol, and Ball’s is Puwadol Kumthai) couldn’t be much different in the size department.
He is almost 19 stone and she is just over 7 stone. They first met 10 years ago but neither can remember who made the first approach!
Cherry, who is a nurse at Mission Hospital, Bangkok said “I know he isn’t handsome but I’m always proud to be out with him. He has a good heart and that is the most important thing”.
She went on “he is so sweet and understanding – for example, he doesn’t like short haired women but when my hair is short he says I look cute!”
“We share everything….happiness and sadness…and that’s the main thing!”
“Many people look at us and call Ball fat, but we do not care because I am in love with the person not just what he looks like”
“We plan to start a family soon and I can not wait for ball to be a father.”
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that the world’s fattest woman – who had to be lifted out of bed by a crane – has lost a whopping one stone a DAY as she waits for a life-saving weight loss op.
Seventy-eight stone Eman Ahmed was flown from her home in Egypt to India on a specially modified cargo plane to undergo a series of operations to help her lose weight.
And since being put on a special 1,200 calorie a day diet the weight has been falling off.
Medics today said in her first five days at the hospital she lost a staggering 66lbs – more than 13lbs a day – after being put on a liquid diet.
Doctors aim to reduce her weight by 200 kg this year so she can fit on the operating table.
Bariatric surgeon Dr Muffazal Lakdawala said: “We need to get her in shape for the surgery.
“The operation table can take the weight of 450 kg but the width of the elevator is only 141 cm. Eman is currently 151 cm in width.”
