After Five Years Of Stretching Her Neck, ‘Giraffe Woman’ Finally Shed Her Rings

We all have our own little weird obsessions. Maybe it’s an addiction to sports or video games, or maybe it’s a constant need to go shopping for the latest line of clothing. Most of us can contain our obsessions to varying degrees, but there are plenty of stories of people who took their obsession a bit too far.

That’s kind of what happened with Sydney Smith, aka ‘Giraffe Woman.’ She spent five years elongating her neck, and it’s pretty wild to see the effect it had on her, both physically and mentally. While it’s always important to be who you are, sometimes, we get carried away.

They say a picture says a thousand words, but I feel there needs to be a little more context behind this. Sydney has long been a fan of giraffes, and at the age of 25, decided she wanted to pay tribute to her favorite thing in the world.

So, she did what any of us would do, and went about elongating her neck. It’s not an easy thing to do, and Sydney would soon find out how much the transformation process would take out of her.
