There are 2 women battling it out to become the biggest woman in the world. Susanne Eman is currently 728 pounds and wants to hit 1600 pounds. Donna Simpson is currently 650 pounds and wants to hit 1000 pounds (clickety click on their names to read their psychoness).
Reading these kinds of stories is like viewing a train wreck… you don’t want to look at it, but you can’t help it. I’ve been reading about these 2 women for a while now… mostly because I think they’ve gone stark raving mad and it gives me motivation to go the other way. Get my butt up off the couch and drop the frig fraggin weight so I don’t end up in a circus of worldwide media tours with these loonies.
I never found one benefit to weighing 530 pounds. NEVER, ever, ever, ever. I never set out to gain that much weight, but years of restricting and “die”ting helped me get there. Obviously, I didn’t wake up one morning and say to myself… Gee, I’m feeling too mobile today, how’s about I eat a 30,000-calorie feast and remedy that. It’s because I was so desparate to get the weight off that I ended up weighing as much as I did. Ironic, ain’t it? The one thing that’s supposed to help you become an average weight only snowballed the issues into a massive runaway glacier. I can’t see how anyone could ever be truly happy that overweight… but these ladies say that they are. It has to be some mental issue… like the reverse of anorexia. The medical issues alone are motivation enough to go the other way. How miserable to think of all of the medications and surgeries and issues that will crop up for you in the future being so unhealthy. It’s embarrassing at best. These ladies give all of the overweight folk of the world a bad name. We aren’t all like that… sitting around stuffing our faces all day, on welfare and medicaid.
One good thing about these ladies telling their story… doesn’t make me so eager to reach for that extra serving of pie at Thanksgiving. Go on with your disgusting selves, women. But leave the rest of us out of it!
