A WOMAN who deliberately put on weight for years lost 16 STONE after splitting from her feeder boyfriend – ultimately saving her life. Morbidly obese Patty Sanchez went from 51.5 to 34 stone after years of constant eating with the encouragement of her ex-boyfriend and online fans. At one point Patty wanted to be the heaviest woman in the world – consuming 13,000 calories per day for several years. But after breaking up with her former partner she decided to change her diet and lifestyle. The 51-year-old mother of four said the weight loss has dramatically improved both her personal and family life.
