Mary and Ruth are twin sisters who looked completely identical until they reached the age of 11. That is when Marry started gaining weight and by the time they reached adulthood she was 300 pounds heavier than her sister! The consequences were devastating, and not just for her, but also for the people who loved her most. Marry always felt like “the fat twin,” and Ruth was so obsessed over her own weight that she battled eating disorders. Ruth even claimed that she was ashamed of her 420 pound twin sister! Sisters appeared in 2005 on ‘Oprah’ and they talked openly about these issues. The most difficult thing for Marry was that her 13-year-old son, Chris, was terrified that she was eating herself to death.
Years later Oprah caught up with the 34-year-old twins for a very shocking update. A terrible tragedy pushed Mary to take control of her health. Watch the video to find out what made her change her life.
