There were also those who wondered aloud where the "average" size bodies were -- meaning, bodies that are neither "plus-size" nor a size zero. It's a point well taken -- but exactly what size (or sizes) that Barbie should come in is clearly still up for debate. Fitness competitors, in addition to having beautifully sculpted bodies, must do a two-minute performance routine incorporating dance, cheerleading or gymnastic flexibility. The National Physique Committee (NPC), which is the amateur division of the International Federation of Body Builders, was so impressed with her performance in their fitness division last year, they gave Thomas their first-ever Inspiration Award. After the childhood accident, doctors said Thomas might live like a vegetable for the rest of her life.

She was playing outside her Texas apartment complex and climbed onto a transformer, grabbling on to the wires. But today, at 37, she has accomplished what was once regarded as the impossible: Thomas is a competitive body builder and model.
