    Well, that's probably good -- unless you're very active or not on the short/petite side.
    Average Woman

    A 35-year-old, 120-lb. person of normal weight for their height would be about 5 ft, 3 inches tall. A 5-foot-3-inch woman who includes light or moderate activity in her schedule two to three times a week needs to consume 1,750 calories per day to maintain her weight. If she is sedentary, she needs only 1,550 calories, but if she is active, exercising 30 minutes a day on most days, she needs 1,900 calories per day.

    I know that I eat more than 1428 calories a day -- I'm not as active as I should be, but I'm 5'10" and haven't weighed 120 lbs since grade school.

    I thought the same thing but at least she's keeping it real. She could've easily pretended to only be grazing on a bowl of salad and tweeted that picture instead.

    Definitions vary, but generally a BMI of 40-49 is morbidly obese; 50 and above is super obese.

    If what you read in the OP's link freaked you out, you might not want to read this one at all.

    Potter, who had been consuming 10,000 calories a day, hopes to reach her goal weight of 532 pounds with the help of Alex.
    Is 532 pounds her final goal weight, her goal weight for the end of 2012, or what?

    I have a lot of sympathy for the son. Not only is he dressing his mother at 18 but his parents are publicly discussing their sexual habits

    I spent a lot of time with both a BodyMedia FIT and also wearing a HRM while doing various exercises and things like lifting weights for an hour only burn 50-100 net calories so I don't see how sex could be burning much more than that.
    The more obese you are, the more calories you burn during exercise.

    Me, too. He doesn't just dress his mum, he bathes her every day. It isn't easy being a carer, but being a carer for a woman who has clearly done this to herself must be extra hard - and then for her and her partner to go public....

    Yes, but it's not *that* much more especially not for something like sex that for most people doesn't last an hour.

Doesn't mean the two stopped loving each other, though.

    Substitute the weight gain for developing a drinking problem, and I don't think it's difficult to see how the situation developed nor how he could still love her. Would you really find it that difficult to understand if a woman still had attraction for her husband if he returned from combat having lost both his legs?
    I could understand if a woman lost attraction to a husband who returned from combat having lost both legs - but in that the case the social pressure to stay would be huge because the guy would be seen as a hero.

    Truth is, people leave each other sometimes when physical attraction wanes, and weight gain can be one reason for that. People leave because their partner has a drinking problem or other addiction as well, though in those cases their are often good reasons.

    Nonetheless, love that endures physical changes is to be commended and admired. People who experience that kind of love have something that others who know only lust will never experience. Ultimately, IMO it is a deeper and more enduring love.

    The truth is, most of are us going to get older and greyer and flabbier and less able. Lots of us are going to get fatter, too. Barring spending a fortune on plastic surgery, we don't have the bodies at 70 we had at 20. It is comforting - and good - to love and be loved nonetheless.

    I wish the best for this couple. To be as heavy as her would be some sort of hell for me. I'm quite sure she doesn't get up every morning and say WHEE I weigh 600 pounds. If his love and sex with him can help her get weight down, more power to both of them.

    You really think this woman ate herself to that size? She isn't just fat or obese from eating too much and lack of exercise; She's morbidly obese X2. I'm pretty sure she has some sort of medical conditions that caused her body to get that large.

    It was sad to read she was a gymnast at one time.

    There is a group of fetishists called "feeders" and "gainers" who gain large amounts of weight on purpose. Don't know if this woman is doing that, but it exists.

    Yes, I do. She wasn't always that size, and admits she got bigger as she ate more, did less, and got depressed. If she has a known medical condition, I think it would have been mentioned.

    It is well documented that the vast majority of obese people have broken appetite control systems. Even so society is so invested in believing that obesity is primarily an issue of willpower and choice that even obese people are convinced they "did this to themselves".
