This undated file photo provided in May 2009 by The Greenville County Sheriff's Office shows Jerri Gray, 49, of Travelers Rest, S.C. An article in a prominent medical journal being released Tuesday, July 12, 2011, says that parents of extremely obese children should lose custody for not controlling their kids' weight in the most extreme cases. Two years ago, Gray lost custody of her 14-year-old son who weighed 555-pounds. She says government authorities don't understand challenges families may face in trying to control their kids' weight. Her sister has custody of the boy, who's now 16. She has the money to help him with a special diet and exercise, and the boy has lost more than 200 pounds.
