( 4UMF NEWS ) Obese Woman Loses Weigh Through Marathon Sex:
The heaviest woman in the world is using an unusual method to shed serious pounds – sex.
“I sweat off loads of calories,” 600-pound Pauline Potter revealed in an interview with UK magazine Closer this month. “I call it ‘sexercise.’”
Potter, 47, became the Guiness World Record holder for heaviest woman last year when she weighed in at 700 pounds, but she’s managed to lose nearly 100 pounds in the last year by rekindling her romance with her ex-husband Alex.
Married for three years, they split in 2008 but reunited when he heard about her Guiness title last year. It didn’t take long for them to land in bed together – repeatedly.
“I hadn’t had sex in three years, but we did it six times!” she told the magazine, adding they now make love between two and seven times per day. “He took charge as I couldn’t move much, but he was so attentive.”
Though their relationship is long distance at the moment – Potter lives in California while Alex is in Arizona – he has made extended trips to see her so they can continue their marathon sex sessions.
“I can’t move much in bed, but I burn 500 calories a session. It’s great exercise just jiggling around,” she told the magazine. “My bed is strengthened and, although I can’t buy sexy lingerie, I drape a nice sheet over me.”
Potter, who has helped speed up her weight loss by exercising in the pool three to five times a week and cutting out most of the junk food in her diet, said she wanted to share her story to satisfy some curiosity she had encountered.
“I found that a lot of people in this world are intrigued that fat girls like sex too,” she told HLN’s Dr. Drew.
The mother of a 14-year-old son, Potter said her weight loss isn’t just about sex – it’s about gaining a healthier lifestyle.
“I want more and I don’t want my life to slip away and possibly die from this,” she told Drew.
