Pauline Potter was the fattest woman in the world.
Like it would for anyone, this news was not an amazing thing for Pauline. In fact, it made her feel terrible.
Actually, she entered the Guinness Book Of Records to shame herself into dieting and the opposite happened — her 10,000 calorie-a-day diet escalated.
She even relied on her 19 year old son to take her to the toilet!
This is where things get a little strange: Alex, her ex-husband, saw the broken record and went to see her. He hadn't seen her in 3 years. He proceeded to get all kinds of mad ruddy with her!
Pauline says this:
"It’s great exercise just jiggling around. I can’t move much in bed, but I burn 500 calories a session – it’s great exercise just jiggling around.”
She's lost about 98lbs!
It was actually her divorce that pushed her over the edge in the first place:
“I was so down, I’d eat four bowls of cereal for breakfast, half a box of cookies and a bag of crisps with cheese as a mid-morning snack. For lunch I’d have a Big Mac with chicken nuggets and fries, then three portions of spaghetti Bolognese for dinner, followed by a pint of ice cream.”
She ended up at around 630lbs a year later, and last September she hit 728lbs.
She had a BMI of 93!
The publicity might not have shamed her, but it did get her laid:
“I hadn’t had sex in three years, but we did it six times! He took charge as I couldn’t move much, but he was so attentive. I orgasm every time. We love foreplay and massages and, as well as full sex, I pleasure Alex, too. My bed is strengthened and, although I can’t buy sexy lingerie, I drape a nice sheet over me.””
So how's it for Alex? Pretty good, he says, as long as he isn't being suffocated:
“I never fell out of love with Pauline, we just had problems with the kids. It’s hard to position her and find her pleasure spots as she has a lot of fat in the pelvic area. But it turns me on knowing she’s satisfied. Although once, when she got on top, I couldn’t breathe.”
Now she's added a diet to her lifestyle!
We're so happy she's on her way back down — and we're happy she's having fun doing it!
Good luck, Pauline!
