Here we are battling away to lose weight and then I read this article:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2026964/Susanne-Emans-bid-worlds-fattest-woman-52st-mother-2-supersizing.html

After getting over the initial shock of it (I can't work out whether my disgust outweighs my disbelief) - I am now mad.

You know even if I wanted to I could not afford to eat 20000 calories every day - I work damn hard for my money and now it really burns my arse to know that there are these people (on both sides of the pond) that are given our tax money to just overeat and now here is someone that is making a career of it, on other people's hard earned money.

Bloody hell next she will be a bloody celebrity earning millions for being nothing but know by many.

Excuse me while I go to a quiet place in my head to scream!!!!!

Oh I read that, and i have trouble eating over 2000 calories a day (always have) it made me quite sick because honestly she is not thinking about her health, or how she is impacting everyone else around her. I actually called my mom to vent after I read that article lol

You say you want a cheeseburger but all I hear is "I need love" - a comic strip on the fridge at work.

You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure.

She is unemployed too. How the heck can she afford all that food. Food stamps does not cover food like that. Craziness.

This article made me sad. I can't believe the people around her are allowing her to do this...like it's something GOOD. After reading her daily food list, my stomach hurt. i can not even IMAGINE putting all of that food in me. It makes me sick thinking that someone would actually WANT to weigh 1600 lbs. I don't understand how someone's body would still be functioning properly even weighing half of that. She should NOT get exposure over this. I bet she will have her own reality show soon. =(

She also has a child. I'm thinking the Child Welfare Services should check in. If they haven't already that is. What a shame.

Oh MY!!! This is absolutely unbelievable! This is not a woman who loves herself. How very sad that she thinks this way. How sad for her children and her family.

You know we are all sitting here thinking WTH is wrong with this woman, but I was just thinking about her kids - they never once asked those kids how they feel about their mother trying this, I am sure it has impacted their lives at school and other activities too.

The whole thing makes me sad... and the amount of calories she eats for breakfast is pretty much my whole days worth of calories...

Disgusting.... Not only is she a very bad example to her children, she is a bad example to the rest of society. As someone says, where are the child welfare people. We are trying to encourage healthy eating and healthy weight loss or gain (depending which you need). The other disgusting thing about this is - there are MILLIONS of starving people in the world, who are dying because of lack of food. What she is consuming, would feed a whole village in one of those countries and save lives..... Mind you it is OUTRAGEOUS that she gets the publicity AND there are people who are encouraging her - what is wrong with these men who are flattering her to such an extent that she is doing this.

I would be embarassed to be her child....and the men might be giving her attention but when you are that fat I'm pretty sure any sort of physical contact would be too hard.....a 1000 pound person would need like 7000 calories to maintain the 1000 pound weight she is eating 3times that much EWWW GROSS no thank you.

I did not read the article. I believe the poor lady is looking for attention by doing something drastic, and I think the worst thing people can do it to buy into it, thus supporting it by spreading the word. The worst thing the medias can do is to tell the story.
I feel bad for her. I think it's a cry for help. However, it's a really bad choice of a cry for help.
I hope she gets to a mentally better place, and reconsiders.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

I don't even know how to respond. She is already forced to use a motorized cart in the grocery store, in another couple hundred pounds she will not be able to do that. Wonder if she has considered the lack of mobility she will have?? Quality of Life?? Her poor sons look miserable.

@kingkeld I don't live with my head buried in the sand and do not apologise for having an opinion.

I think you missed the point of my comment -

The fact that someone is paid enough money by a government to eat this quantity of food is WRONG.

The fact that she thinks it is ok to have a goal to reach a tonne in weight is WRONG.

The fact that she has a "doctor" monitoring her "progress" is WRONG.

The fact that the article is printed in a way of almost condoning/supporting her behaviour is WRONG.

As this woman is on Social Benefit the solution, well to me anyway, appears to be obvious - cut her benefit so she can only afford to eat a normal healthy amount of food, and use the difference to get her some much needed counselling.

We are now living in a world where the difference between right and wrong has become very warped.

You know unfortunately there are men out there who like super duper sized women. My husband is one of them, and he is not supporting me on my weight loss journey. I mean he is not verbally telling me to not lose weight, but he is just upset that I am losing weight. I have lost to date from 2004 114 pounds. I have a lot more to go, but I am happy I am losing weight and so is my dr. He even laughed and said I was doing my own version of gastric bypass. The idea of having to use a motorized cart makes me shudder. I am so greatful to our Lord Jesus Christ that he is helping me through this. I hope this woman wakes up and realizes what a big mistake she is making. To me it sounds like she has given up on any way to lose weight. Look at Ruby Gettinger, she weighed 714 pounds at one time, and now she is around 328. She could have given up, but she did not. Also, I think this woman just does not want to lose weight. Yes, it is easier to eat the wrong things, and who doesn't like to eat some "goody" once in a while, but come on, really do you need to eat that much food? And yes, I feel sorry for her children as well. Telling them that all people eat differently is just pathetic. She is also making it hard for all of us who are trying to lose weight because she is making us all look like people who have no control. That has always been the typical "fat person" persona, They are weak and do not want to lose weight, they cannot control their eating. You feel like you want to shake her and knock some sense into her!

This is just sick and wrong, not to mention disturbing. You're jeopardizing your health all to break some sort of record? And what do she get for breaking the record (if she even make it), besides being bed-ridden and probably not even able to breathe on her own, not being able to move and pretty much losing your whole life - all because she wants to break the record for being fat?? WTF is wrong with people.

My favorite is that she does light exercise around the house so she is a "healthy fat". Sure, just like people can be a Catholic Jew.

Well her body has to hold up all that weight so light exercise is the way to go obviously... If she is healthy fat I will eat my own socks... lol
