Gettin’ Down to Get Down
What a fun and creative way to begin her weight loss journey. Pauline Potter became the world’s heaviest living woman last year, weighing in at a whopping 643 pounds. Now, Potter has her sights set on losing weight, and she’s turned to marathon sex sessions to help shed the pounds.
“I can’t move much in bed, but I burn 500 calories a session –- it’s great exercise just jiggling around,” said Potter. Potter, who had been consuming 10,000 calories a day, hopes to reach her goal weight of 532 pounds with the help of Alex, her ex-husband. The two “get their exercise” up to seven times each day.
After meeting online in 2002, the couple married in 2005 and, when Potter failed to bond with Alex’s son, the two split up three years later. The break-up triggered Potter’s weight gain and caused her depression.
Ms. Potter contacted the Guinness Book of World Records in hopes that winning the title of “World’s Heaviest Woman” would shame her into losing weight. When Alex got wind of the publicity surrounding Potter, he decided to visit her and the flame was quickly rekindled.
“Shagging can make you slimmer, if you do enough of it,” Dr. Yvonne Kristin Fulbright, a sex educator, relationship expert, columnist and founder of Sexuality Source Inc., wrote for Fox News in 2008. “It can also help the two of you fall for each other all over again. Requiring no monthly fee — dress code optional – you can ‘sexercise’ yourself into shape. This is one gym membership you’ll never want to drop.”
While continuing her exercise routine, Ms. Potter has also reigned in her poor eating habits, with only an occasional Big Mac.
