The Human Hourglass!



In case you missed it, this is 30-year-old "model" Ioana Spangenberg, "The Human Hourglass", who has such a fast metabolism, that it's eaten her own waist by the looks of it. She told The Sun newspaper that she used to be self-conscious about her body, but now she embraces having thighs which have never formally met - aka, she's happy being a serious kind of skinny.

"When I was 13 my waist was around 15 inches. Someone could put their hands around it, their fingers would touch and they would still have extra room. In Romania it is better to be overweight, because that means you are from a wealthy family. So while my friends were going out and dating, I was sitting at home with Mars bars wishing I could fatten up.

Jan [her husband] was the first person who saw me as beautiful and encouraged me to celebrate my body. He asked me to pose in some photos for him. He was so impressed he put them online and the response was amazing. I would still like to gain weight so I don't look so shocking — and now that I live in Germany I can't get enough pizza or kebabs. But I'm finally comfortable in my own skin
."

For those of you who jump on the scales in a panic after just half a McNugget, yes, I hate Ioana already too. But aside from that, I'm thinking
she'd be great in an episode of C4's "Shipwrecked" - the others could use her hip bones as a stepping stool to climb up a palm tree, grab a coconut and crack it open on one of her razor sharp elbows. 
Anyhoo, before you disappear off to raid the biscuit cupboard, come and squint your way through this video of Ioana strutting her bones (below). To be honest, I can't tell if she's a man (???) or a woman (???) but isn't it amazing what you can do with Bacofoil these days?
