Susanne Eman, a 32-year-old, 728-pound woman from Casa Grande, Arizona is trying to get into Guinness World Records as the “World’s Heaviest Woman.” She is hoping to reach this goal by the time she is 41-years-old. The last woman who held this title, 1,200-pound Rosalie Bradford, died back in 2006.
Eman told reporters she wants to shatter the record by putting on 1,600 pounds. This is her ultimate goal; weighing in at one ton.
Among Eman’s rivals, is one Donna Simpson, of Akron, Ohio, who currently holds the Guinness record for heaviest woman ever to have children. She has won the title by weighing a formidable 532 pounds after giving birth to her daughter, Jacqueline, in February 2007; an event which required 30 doctors.
Simpson says that she suspects that Eman is in-cahoots with her ex-manager and trying to garner publicity to compete for her fan base. Simpson also accuses Eman of trying to take away her “World’s Fattest Mom” title.
Eman’s diet consists of upwards of 22,000 calories daily, including six eggs scrambled in butter, a half-pound of bacon, four potatoes, six pieces of buttered toast and a 32-ounce shake for breakfast.
While Eman cannot speak to the press because of a contract she is under, a source close to Eman’s camp considers Simpson’s comments to be “a load of crap” designed to make Simpson a lot of money and get her a reality show. The source also said that while there is duress in the media to pit the two against each other, Eman prefers to stay focused on her own individual career.
Simpson does not deny having dreams of being on Television, but she says she has other priorities which she puts first.
While Simpson says she has been fat for the majority of her 43 years, Eman’s mission started just two years ago when she found that she could not stop packing on pounds. Actually, she was at 490 pounds when she made an important discovery.
Eman’s doctor, Patrick Flyte, has repeatedly told her that she is playing Russian roulette with her life, and does not recommend that anyone follow in her footsteps.
Dr. Flyte, though, admitted that her medical checks show absolutely no current problems and that she is of sound mind.
But Simpson insists that she is more tuned into her losses than her gains.
At her peak, she tipped the scales weighing in at 730 pounds and had set a goal of reaching 1,000 pounds. Nonetheless, she is now trying to get down to 370 pounds – a weight which she said will allow her to remain as fat as she wants to be.
