Obese model Susanne Eman has a strange ambition – she wants to become the world’s fattest woman in history.
The 52-stone mother-of-two aims to reach a whopping 115 stone by wolfing down at least 20,000 calories a day.
Susanne, 32, from Arizona, USA, hopes to pass the half-way milestone of 57 stones by the end of the year.
“I’d love to find out if it’s humanly possible to reach a tonne,” she said.
“A previous record holder was 1,600lbs (115 stone) , so I have to be at least that.
“My next goal is to be 57 stone (800lbs) by the end of the year.
“At my current rate of growth, I should be 115 stone by age 41 or 42.”
According to the Daily Mail, Susanne visits the supermarket once a month with sons Gabriel, 16, and Brendin, 12, and spends up to eight hours filling six shopping trollies.
“It’s like a full day’s work,” said Susanne, who uses a motorised scooter but still believes she can stay healthy.
She added: “The bigger I get, the better I feel. I feel more confident and sexy. Why shouldn’t I push the limits and see how fat I can get and stay healthy?”
Susanne’s mission to become the world’s fattest woman began after she failed to lose weight.
“Two years ago I hit 35 stone because I was losing my battle against weight gain,” she said.
“I noticed I actually started attracting more men, and it made me feel good.”
The unemployed mother – who can’t work because of her excessive weight – claims she stays active by doing simple exercises and having regular health checks.
“I go for a waddle and do stretches and exercises every day,” she said.
“My muscles need to hold up to my weight, so I have to stay strong.
“I take my blood pressure once a week, and every day, after I exercise, I take readings of my other vitals. I use a pulse oximeter to measure the concentration of oxygen in my blood stream.
“And I take my blood sugar levels just like a diabetic. If either of the readings go above a certain level, I’ll immediately contact my doctor for advice.
“If I was to get sick, I’ve arranged for my sister to take care of my kids.
“I haven’t gone near the danger zones yet though.”
Despite warnings from her doctor that her excessive weight could kill her, Susanne insists she wants to break the record.
Dr Patrick Flite said: “She’s really playing Russian roulette with her life with this goal. There are well-documented complications that come with morbid obesity.
“I would never encourage anyone to be doing what Susanne is doing.”
Dr Flite said Susanne’s medical checks showed no current problems, adding: “She’s capable of making her own decisions. I don’t see any psychiatric problems or anything else wrong.”
But Susanne admitted she’s taken steps to protect her children from going down the same unhealthy path.
“The boys do notice my diet and that I eat more each day,” she said.
“I tell them that everybody likes different things. If I’m making something fatty and they want something healthy, then I make us different meals.”
Susanne also acts as an online agony aunt for other potential ‘Super Size Big Beautiful Women’ (SSBBWs).
“I want to break the stigma that being fat is a bad thing,” she said. “I remind other fat people that it is OK for them to be that way.
“The message I want to get across is for people to accept others for who they are.”View Comments
