This Pennsylvania woman is determined to have the worlds biggest hips even if it ends up killing her, according to a report.
Bobbi-Jo Westley, 43, of York, already has hips that measure 95 inches, but she has her sights set on the current record of 99 inches, held by Mikel Ruffinelli of Los Angeles, Barcroft Media reported.
My hips are what makes me unique, she told the news outlet. Its what makes me me.’
Her supersize hips have earned her instant online fame with worldwide fans buying and trading her pictures.
She has even arranged crushing sessions for her biggest fans, who pay to have the curvaceous woman sit on them and squash them.
When I realized that there were men out there who like my shape, I was kind of surprised, she told the site. I get all kinds of presents and messages from my fans, some of them ask will you marry me?, which is kind of hard because Im already married.
But the 5-foot-2 Westley, who weighed in at 542 pounds the last time she went to the doctor, said her shapely hips come at a cost.
Westley is currently housebound under doctors orders and her immense size prevents her from doing many day-to-day activities.
When I go up or down stairs, or through doors, I have to turn sideways, she told Barcroft Media.
She says her massive weight gain is caused by an underactive thyroid, a condition she was diagnosed with six years ago.
But her nutritionist, Nadia Sharifi, owner of MyTrimLine Weight Loss and Wellness Centers, isnt buying it.
Its literally a life-or-death choice at this point, she told the site. Hormones, or thyroid issues, or blood type or ancestry might play a little part, but ultimately its down to what we put into our mouth.
When were talking about her veins, she can have a block very easily. She is really, truly a ticking time bomb.
Westley said she knows shes putting herself at risk, and she has worried about her health. Her doctor has even asked her to consider gastric bypass surgery.
But her determination to shatter a word record far surpasses her fears.
Its just something that I have to do and I take it one day at a time, she said. I want to be remembered for something, and I think having the worlds biggest hips is what I was meant to be remembered for.
