Pauline Potter is the heaviest woman in the world, at almost 700 pounds, and says she intentionally gained weight as a cry for help.

“I knew that i needed help losing weight and I went to Dr. Phil, Oprah, Dr. Oz, and nobody would hear me or respond,” she said. “So I decided to get in contact with Guinness, and I thought, ‘Okay well I'm already this size, I might as well take advantage of it to get my story out there.”

Potter was hoping someone would read about her in the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records and offer to help her lose weight.
