I wonder what she weighs after an event

We did a story on the International Federation of Competitive Eating (IFOCE) in our Jan/Feb issue. One of the eaters featured in that story has successfully grossed me out once again by eating 60 ham biscuits to win another IFOCE event. And to make things more impressive, Sonya Thomas (a.k.a. 'Black Widow') only weighs about 100 lbs. What's frustrating to me is that they never share their pre-contest and post-contest weights. I mean this woman must weigh a good bit more after she's eaten 60 biscuits. 

Her other records include eating "46 dozen oysters in 10 minutes, 11 pounds of cheesecake in 9 minutes, 48 chicken tacos in 11 minutes and 56 hamburgers in 8 minutes."

I love her quote regarding dunking all the biscuits in water to help them go down easier. She says "Sometimes the water taste makes me feel a little bit sick." It's the water, not the 60 biscuits.
