318kg woman to lose weight for baby
A morbidly obese mum-to-be has given up on her dream of becoming the world’s fattest woman to trim down for the sake of her unborn baby.
At 318kg, Monica Riley was well on her way towards her dream of becoming so fat that she couldn’t move.
With the help of her feeder fiance, Sid, 28-year-old Monica, who modelled on sites for “big, beautiful women”, would consume more than 10,000 calories every day, often using a funnel to help her consume the sickening volume of food.Features men can not resist
Monica, who is 15 weeks pregnant, is now in a desperate battle to shed her substantial excess weight, and has already lost more than 88kg in just 10 weeks, taking her down to 222kg.
She has already experienced the tragedy of two miscarriages, and has now vowed to overhaul her shocking lifestyle to become fit and healthy for her baby.
Monica, from Fort Worth, Texas, said: “At one point in my life, I wanted to be the biggest woman in the world. I wanted to be bedbound and immobile and be fed even more.NASA is looking for someone to protect Earth from aliens
“But now that I am pregnant, it’s been a wake up call.
“I want to be able to be active with my child. I want to be able to get up and with him or her and be involved in every way. You can’t do that if you’re immobile.”
Last summer, back when Monica still weighed a staggering 318kg, she found out she was pregnant for the first time.Wife starts dating dead husband’s brother
She and her boyfriend Sid were overjoyed, although Monica continued to indulge in her dangerous diet.
At 12 weeks, a scan revealed that the foetus was malformed, leading to Monica taking medication to pass the rest of the foetus.
Months later, she found out that she was pregnant again, but suffered another miscarriage at 14 weeks.Your sleeping pattern could be making you fatter
“I was depressed and crying a lot. I picked myself up and just kept going,” she said.
“I just had to put it behind me and I pretty much pretended that it never happened.”

After blaming herself for the miscarriages, Monica and Sid put their family plans on hold.
But the couple hadn’t been using protection, and Monica fell pregnant again in March.

“There is no clear medical evidence but I think if I was healthier the babies would have been stronger.
“I accept that my eating habits were terrible.

“The diet has been very difficult,” she said.
“There has been a lot of crying and a lot of mental challenges. Food for me was an addiction pretty much, just like alcohol or drugs.”
And she was also concerned that her “feeder” fiance, Sid, would stop being attracted to her body if she becomes slimmer.This is what happens when 100 Americans try to speak like the British
But Sid says he’ll love her no matter what, adding: “I am not just attracted to her body. I am attracted to her as a whole complete person.
“At this point, I don’t care if she’s even 120 pounds. I told her even if she’s tiny, I would still be in love with her. There aren’t two ways about it.”

She said: “I don’t have a goal weight in mind, it’s more about health than size. The pregnancy is progressing well and the baby has a strong heartbeat.
“We are going to encourage the baby to eat well as he or she grows up. I don’t want my child to think that being fat is wrong, I just want them to be active, healthy and happy.”Why we close our eyes to kiss
Sid added: “We just want the baby to be healthy so we can finally start our life together as a family and maybe even have more kids in the future.
“I just want to give him or her the best life I can, and that’s all that matters.”
