Jodie Sinclair, who weighs 28st, lives in a rent-free council home in Peterborough, where she collects a monthly Disability Living Allowance and Income Support.
Ms Sinclair claims she is ‘too fat to work’, but has repeatedly declined NHS weight loss surgery because, ‘she is not doing anything wrong’.
‘I’m not going under the knife for anyone because I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong,’ the 28-year-old said.
Doctors keep on shouting at me to lose weight but I don’t even eat that much. My cooked breakfasts are my treat. My mum would come over every day and we would have sausage, bacon, beans and toast but the dietician had a go at me for that.
Yet it doesn’t end here. Due to being ‘too big’ to keep her home in a clean condition, she also believes she should be entitled to a free cleaner.
In response to the Metro article, Jodie commented:
You don’t pay for me I don’t get dla and as I will keep saying they have lied about me I have lymphodema and lipodema don’t judge what you don’t know.
We think she means Lymphedema – swelling that generally occurs in one of your arms or legs. Sometimes both arms and both legs swell.
