Fattest Women in America
Dr Oz’s show on August 7, 2012 is called The Fattest Women in America Face-Off. Where do you stand in the Obesity Debate? Four women told Doctor Oz they love being “obese” and four women said they absolutely hate it. Dr Oz also spoke with Pauline Potter, who may just be the fattest woman in America?!?! Plus, if you are struggling with obesity, Dr Oz gave tips for How to Stop Obesity. Where do you stand on the “Fat Debate?” My opinion is that I am thrilled that some women who are classified as obese are self-confident enough to feel happy with the way they look, but to me, it is not a matter of how anyone looks – it is a matter of health. I think obesity is something that has to be fought off, because even if you are comfortable with the way you look, it simply is not good for anyone to be obese. What do you think?

Pauline Potter – Fattest Woman in the World
Dr Oz had the chance to interview Pauline Potter, who holds the record for the fattest woman in the world. At the age of 48 years old, she weighs 700 pounds. She said that she has been overweight her entire life. When Pauline Potter was 17 years old, she already weighed 220 pounds. She was 500 pounds by the time she met her husband (who she is still with), and by the time she got married she was up to 600 pounds. But Pauline Potter feels badly now because she spends most of her time in bed and her son Dylan has to help her with everything she might need. I hope that we hear news from Pauline Potter soon that says she lost a lot of weight and has changed her life to spend more time doing enjoyable activities with her family and friends!
