Susanne Eman's bid to be the World's Fattest Woman
Why don't they just put a sign on their chests, "We are here to make fat people look bad and help make things worse for you"?
The video is in Spanish, but you'll get the general idea, there you can see more pictures...
I wish I could talk to couple of these women. I've been at near 700lbs. Walking almost stopped for me. I am still hugely fat around 500, but if I hadn't lost down from that amount I would have been dead. Walking stops at around the 650lbs marks, hygiene becomes very hard, then you end up in the nursing home being put up on a hoist, and being in bed night and day. My doctors are in shock I have lasted this long, I bought 12 more years of life from that 160lbs I got off even if I remained in the supersizes.
I am not trying to be down on people who end up supersized. It happened to me, as I talk about in the intro article to this blog, the 400 lb gain in 28 months that I wouldn't wish on my worse enemy. I know I stress my theme of almost having died, and having to fight and basically scream to be heard, to get my health problems dealt with to bring me back from the brink of death.
Even if she is doing this to gain fame, get in the paper, earn money, etc, it is a selling out to the fat hating world, basically saying all fat people are gluttons who have chosen their fate via bad behavior and choices, it makes things worse for very fat people as women like this sign up to be poster children for every negative stereotype the worse fat hater could come up with. It makes a mockery of those who really may have serious eating disorders who have led to their obesity and it also silences the voices of others, who face obesity linked illnesses. If she is really doing this, and it's not just a PR stunt, she needs serious help just like an anorexic would get from the opposite end in a hospital somewhere. It makes me even angrier that she is not thinking of her children at all.
