amanda bynes tweets update about her weight loss goal

We were so caught up with Amanda Bynes and her rap career that we almost completely forgot about her weight-loss goal!

A couple of months ago, AB took to Twitter to announce she was hoping to get her weight down to the dangerously low number of 100 pounds!

Last we checked, she was at 135 pounds and looked pretty damn good in a naughty selfie! But apparently that wasn't enough, as she's lost even more weight and kept us posted on her progress, saying:

The New Oldest Person Alive Is…

Filed under: HealthAging

Oldest person alive

Maria Gomes Valentim, a 114-year-old Brazilian woman who was born on July 9, 1896, according to Guinness World Records.

Although bound to a wheelchair, the world's oldest person is in relatively good health and attributes her longevity to eating a roll of bread for breakfast everyday paired with fruit.

Her granddaughter told newspapers her long life is due to more than just a healthy diet too, explaining:

"She says she has lived long because she has always taken care of her own life – and not the life of others."

Less stress and less mess means a longer life!

Even MORE amazing than her age is the fact that she lives off of $335 a month thanks to Brazil's minimum pension.

Relatives hope her recognition may improve her financial system and so do we!

Guinness recognizes Maria's age as an unprecedented feat for her country, saying:

"To receive a claim from a woman born during the reign of Queen Victoria – before the Ford Motor Company was formed, or before even George and Ira Gershwin, were born – is remarkable in itself, but for that woman to be Brazilian makes it extra special. Never has a successful claim for longevity emerged from Brazil – until now."

Congrats on the title, Maria! We hope you hold it for many years to come!

Two Of The World's Oldest People Pass Away Only Hours Apart

Filed under: Super SeniorsR.I.P.Sad Sad

This is kind of a bummer.

Two of the oldest people in the world passed away this past Sunday - and only HOURS apart.

What are the odds of that??!

Mary Joesphine Ray, who was the oldest living person in the USA, died at 114 in New Hampshire.

She apparently had remained ACTIVE until about two weeks before her passing!

AMAZING!

Her granddaughter, Katherine Ray, said:

"She just enjoyed life. She never thought of dying at all. She was planning for her birthday party."

Daisey Bailey, who was just a month shy of 114, died hours later in Detroit. She was unfortunately suffering from dementia.

L. Stephen Coles, director of the Gerontology Research Group, said:

"It's very rare that two of our supercentenarians die on the same day."

Yeah, seriously. WOW.

So, so sad.

It must be hard to outlive your family and friends, but we hope they both lived full and happy lives!

We sincerely hope Mary and Daisey are somewhere at peace.
