Say what?! Yes, seriously. A 643 pound woman joined the Guinness Book of World Records last year as being the heaviest living woman—and now it turns out that she's lost 98 pounds.

That's not the crazy surprising news, though. Pauline Potter has lost the weight thanks to a reignited sex life with ex-husband Alex—a man who weighs just 140 pounds! I am completely astounded and in AWE of this woman. I mean, WOW. Just… wow.

I admit it: when I first read this story, I was a bit confused. I'm really happy that she's losing weight, since it's something that she seems to want to do, and I'm SUPER impressed that she's losing weight thanks to sex (seriously, who wouldn't want THAT to happen?!), but, well, mechanically… how is this all working? In an interview with UK's Closer magazine, she explains:

I can't move much in bed, but I burn 500 calories a session –- it's great exercise just jiggling around. We love foreplay and massages and, as well as full sex, I pleasure Alex, too. My bed is strengthened and, although I can't buy sexy lingerie, I drape a nice sheet over me.

Well, I guess that explains it. Apparently the reunited couple has sex up to seven times a day and Alex explains that "even though Pauline's legs weigh more than I do, we're able to position her body to make sex enjoyable for both of us."

Okay, so I'm still a little astounded that she lost ALL THAT WEIGHT with just sex cause, well, maybe I should have tried that! Haha. Either way, though, I'm impressed—congrats to Pauline, her rockin' new sex life, happy hubby and weight loss! Keep going, girl.

ML...

Irina! Oh my. I had all these questions on the headline... but you answered them! 7 times a day??? what?

runni...

This is insane. Glad they figured out the logistics of how it should work. ...

Prove...

This is by far the most intersting article.  I use to weigh 160.  Now I'm down to 157.  I think I will stick to my normal diet.  Eating right and drinking water and enjoying good sex from my husband.  If I was to have sex with my husband just to loose weight, I would be soo withered away at 57 pounds.  Lol to each it's own I guess (;

 

mamio...

why isnt she dead? that sounds awful but seriously?

rock_...

Wow, what an amusing article. I didn't know that jiggling around could contribute to weight loss...Well, Um that's great that she's losing the weight, one way or another.  Hopefully she continues her weight loss journey and gets down to a manageable weight.

libel...

just wow! I can't imagine!
