FULL TITLE: 'I blame it on my genes': 700lb Californian woman enters the record books as the world's fattest woman
After reaching 700 pounds, Pauline Potter has officially entered the record books as the world's heaviest woman.
But the 47-year-old from Sacramento, California, now says she wants to lose weight so she can enjoy every day life again.
Mrs Potter had boasted that men think she is a 'sex goddess' and she has 'fantastic sex every day', but she now struggles with daily life and cannot turn over in bed and or fit in her car. She wants to lose as much as 500 pounds in order to be able to go dancing, go on road trips and fit in seats at the theatre.
The world record holder, who currently weighs 643 pounds, blames her upbringing as the main reason for her size.
She said that being overweight is in her genes and that as a child there was an 'overabundance' of food.
'My mom was over 400 pounds and my dad over 600,' she said. 'I have eight siblings all which are over 300, except one.

‘I blame my genes’ 700lb Californian woman...’
Amazing she can still get into her genes!
She has a person come in twice a week to do it for her.
The article said she can’t fit in her car any longer so she can’t drive to the grocery store. Seems simple enough, don’t buy her anything but vegetables. Once all the fattening food is gone she will have to eat the vegetable or starve. I also would take away her cash and credit cards so she can’t order in food.
What I am thinking is that her son actually grew up while everything focused on HER needs only. I am sure “you are such a good Mommy’s helper” and “if you don’t help Mommy then no one else will”... was used constantly. I saw a program on television once about a woman that was huge. She had three daughters who cooked, cleaned, bathed her, etc.. One girl even dropped out of school so she “wouldn’t be alone”. The selfish Mother was okay with it, too. Finally, there was a medical team that would send the meals to her. Low calorie meals including some small, nutritious snacks. The crying, the complaining... A very dysfunctional family where the addiction of one parent essentially drowns the entire family.
I'd pass out first.
She uses a tracking device to go to the toilet.
It beeps as she backs over the target.
I think you have the right idea, but some medical supervision and physical therapy might be in order.
There are real physical dangers to cutting her diet too fast, or the wrong way - but still, it can be done.
There are physical dangers to feeding her donuts.
I guess I’m just saying that people don’t get into these extreme situations without an enabler.
“Mr. Creosote, please have a mint. It is waffer thin.”
She wipes with a fatty bidet; a power washer.
Holy cow! What is that?! Her feet even have fat rolls.
Journey to the Center of the Girth.
LOL! Or "Roll her in flour and look for the wet spot."
Two words: Diet and execise.
Water hoses that use sprays meant for hippos. Which she resembles.
The son must be her enabler. I always wonder who keeps bringing the food to these people once they are immobile.
I agree with you.
“You all already know the answer, so dont bother asking.”
Laz, to the best of my admittedly somewhat recollection, I have never so inquired!
In any event, I’m thinking that this blossom was the beloved of the fellow who took up with the plastic raft the other day.
That would be “somewhat sketchy recollection”.
Well, it's a good thing that you're big-boned. If you weren't, your bones would snap like toothpicks from all that excess weight.
Some have ventured, none have returned.
