Mum of 5 Bobbi-Jo Westley is on a one-woman mission to have the world’s biggest hips – even if it kills her.
When we last saw her here her hips measured a staggering 93 inches. But that wasn’t enough for Bobbi-Jo. She has her eyes on the prize of a world record, and intends to keep gaining weight until she beats the current record of 99 inches, and she’s not far off! Now, Bobbi-Jo’s hips have grown to a massive 95 inches and she’s not giving up until she’s gained that illusive, record-beating extra five inches!
It’s not only Bobbi-Jo that loves the idea of supersize hips – she has a gigantic following on social media after treating her fans to pictures of her curvaceous figure.
She says, ‘I’m famous for my hips and my butt – it’s the first thing people notice!’
‘When I realised that there where men out there who like my shape, I was kind of surprised.’
‘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 I’m already married.’
Although Bobbi-Jo loves the attention and income her online fans bring, she also admits that having such wide hips can cause problems.
She explains, ‘having big hips is kind of difficult. When I go down or up the steps I have to turn sideways. I can’t sit on chairs with arms. Last time I went to a doctor, I weighed in at 542lb.’
Bobbi-Jo, who claims her favourite food is salad, believes that it is her underactive thyroid, and not her lifestyle, that has caused her extreme weight gain.’
She says, ‘people look at me and think, ‘oh, she’s big, she must eat a lot.’’
‘To be honest I don’t eat a lot, it’s medical. Sometimes I don’t eat breakfast, I really don’t eat lunch, I’ll pick here and there but I’ll eat a dinner.’
However, nutritionist Nadia Sharifi recently visited Bobbi-Jo – and she wasn’t quite so convinced by her explanation.
Nadia says, ‘she doesn’t eat enough and when she does it’s unhealthy food. Thyroid is a little part of it but really her nutrition and the way she eats is a bigger part.’
‘Her claiming that she has the worlds biggest hips is definitely a self-protective mechanism. You have to understand, she can’t control a lot of things in her life but the thing she can control is how big she can get her hips.’
‘She’s really truly a ticking time bomb. It’s a life or death choice at this point.’
Despite being told that she desperately needs to lose weight for her health, Bobbi-Jo remains determined to have the world’s biggest hips.
She defiantly says, ‘I understand that I’m putting myself at risk by trying to get the world’s biggest record.’
‘I want to be remembered for something, and I think having the world’s biggest hips is what I was meant to be remembered for.’
