An Arizona woman who already weighs a whopping 728 pounds is on a quest to eat her way to 1,600 pounds, although doctors say she could be dead before she reaches her bizarre goal.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, 32-year-old Susanne Eman used to struggle with her weight just like so many other Americans.
"Two years ago I hit (nearly 500 pounds) because I was losing my battle against weight gain," she said.
But then the damnest thing happened.
"I noticed I actually started attracting more men, and it made me feel good."
Eman is a growing number of "Super Size Big Beautiful Women" (SSBBW) who feel and think they look better as their weight increases. So they just don't stop.
In Eman's case, she is downing some 20,000 calories per day in an effort to reach her 1,600 pound goal, which would make her the fattest person in history. And after that?
"I'd love to find out if it's humanly possible to reach a ton," she said.
But it's unlikely the single mother of two will live that long.
"She's really playing Russian roulette with her life with this goal," her physician Dr. Patrick Flite said. "There are well-documented complications that come with morbid obesity. I would never encourage anyone to be doing what Susanne is doing."
But Eman is undeterred.
"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."
