Pauline Potter, 47, the world’s heaviest woman made up with her ex-husband after the Guinness Wold Book of Records recognized her as the heaviest woman in the world.
Pauline, a resident of Sacramento, California weighs 728 lb. Pauline and Alex first got married in 2003 and she and her son, Dillon, 19, moved to Phoenix, Arizona, to live with Alex and his son Sherman, now 21 who was her husband then.
However, Pauline recognizes the fact that their relationship was not a good one from the start and soon, filed for divorce and later on moved back to Sacramento.
“The turning point was when I had to ask Dillon to help me to get dressed,” Pauline explained. “I now need him to pull everything up because I can’t reach behind myself. It also takes me an hour to shower because I have to reach my hose under each and every fat fold. It’s exhausting.” Pauline contacted the Guinness Book of Records. to let them know of her weight to which she said, “I figured I needed to publicly humiliate myself in order to help myself.”
However, it seems the alarm worked really well for her because she managed to get back with her ex-husband. “Most women think losing weight is the way to get their ex’s attention – but for me it was just the opposite. Becoming the world’s heaviest woman is what made him fall in love with me all over again and we’re now working on getting our relationship back on track,” she bragged.
Alex talked about their love life saying, “She can’t walk, dress herself or even go to the toilet on her own – but I’m desperate to be her lover and caretaker again,” Alex Potter said. Pauline Potter now gets $850 a month in benefits.
Despite the publicity, Pauline Potter wants to lose weight once again. “My goal is to lose 200 lb plus and have weight-loss surgery so I can be mobile again and not rely on anyone for help,” Pauline Potter said.
Talking about their intimate life, Alex said he had missed their intimate life. “I miss our [intimate] life. Pauline could be 1000 lb and we’d still have [intimacy] every single day because it’s that good. Within the first day of being back together, we [were intimate] six times in 24 hours,” he said.
He went on to add saying, “Even though one of Pauline’s legs weighs more than I do, we’re able to position her body to make [intimacy] enjoyable for both of us.”
