Most women want to contain the size of their hips, especially after having children, when the body goes through some drastic changes. But one woman says when her hips spread after childbirth, she didn’t want them to get any smaller.

“I love my shape and I see no reason to diet because I don’t have health problems,” 39-year old Mikel Ruffinelli insists. “I love Mexican food, English breakfasts and chips. My husband finds my shape sexy and we have an amazing time in bed – there’s no position we can’t do! He tells me I’m beautiful every day. Men don’t fancy skinny girls, they like an hourglass figure.”

But we’re not just talking moving up a size or two in the waistband; Ruffinelli actually holds the world’s record for Largest Hips and, at 8-feet in circumference, they make life a bit more difficult. The mother of four says she can barely shower because she can’t close the door all the way, and moving through doorways requires her to turn sideways. It can also cause issues when she’s out in public, as people tend to be quite rude about her figure. But she always has her husband to back her up.

“When men disrespect her on the street in front of me it doesn’t go down well. I have to show them who’s boss,” Reggie Brooks says.

    She’s hurting herself by doing this. If her husband loves her, he would gently talk to her about dieting. One day this wonderful lady will die and it will not be pretty. Trust me, I held my baby brother in my arms as he was dying bc he had high b/p. :’(

    yuck oh my god yuck!!!!!!!!!!

  • Paula

    That woman is an example of what is wrong with America she does not have an hour glass figure as she states she is simply Obese and needs to lose 100lbs. or so seriously it is truly disgusting.

  • Mark Evans

    She says She love Her shape and size. I wonder how much She will love that heart attach.

  • Peace Angel

    THIS IS A WOMAN IS SERIOUS DENIAL. SHE CLAIMS TO BE HEALTHY AND EXERCISE. HER POOR DAUGHTERS HAD TO GET HER OFF THE COUCH AND SHE CANNOT STAND UP FOR LONG.

    IF I HEAR ONE MORE MORBIDLY OBESE WOMAN SAY “I LOVE MY CURVES” I AM GOING TO SCREAM. EVENTUALLY ALL THESE “OBESE” WOMEN AND MEN COST ALL OF US IN OUR INSURANCE PREMIUMS AND VISITS TO THE DOCTOR OR THE HOSPITAL.

    A FULL PHYSICAL WOULD PROVE TO HER THAT HER “CURVES” ARE KILLING HER AND I FEEL SOOOOO SORRY FOR KIDS WHOSE MOM IS CONSTANTLY BEING VIDEOTAPED AND PHOTOGRAPHED BECAUSE SHE IS UNSIGHTLY.

    • Marc W

      You really should change your screen name, “Peace” has no business in your statement, nor does “Angel.” You represent neither.

      • Dee

        Amen Marc! Peace Angel is a joke isn’t it?

  • Amanda

    Watching this video broke my heart. She can tell herself that she is happy… Is she really? You cannot fit in a shower, you cannot walk through your hallway correctly, you cannot play a long period of time with your children? She really needs help physically to be healthy. I am not trying to judge her I just want to be able to have a long healthy life with her beautiful children.

  • Julian

    Anybody want to share a seat on the bus or train or plane with her?
    Glad her husband loves her but he will appreciate her a whole lot more
    if she loses 50% of those hips. She’ll also be alive 50% longer

  • Brenda

    I refuse to believe she is happy. I think she tries to make herself and others believe that. How painful that must be to carry around that kind of weight. It’s not healthy and she will most likely die at an early age. Not to mention that tax payers will foot the medical bills. She needs some serious help, both physically and emotionally. I hope she gets it.

    • Dee

      How do you know the taxpayers will foot the bill. Are you privy to her insurance situation? What a racist remark. You got to love Americans.

  • Porchia

    Uh, that woman is not just hippy, she is OBESE. Hips are bones, bones don’t spread that far. That is FAT. 8 feet of FAT.

  • garytheobserver

    An hourglass figure? Sorry but it looks like “time has run out”.

  • Kristin

    She doesnt have health problems?? She cant fit into the shower, I consider that a MAJOR health probelm. I do believe her hips could not have gotten that big without genetics, she is as big as she is because of diet which she has clearly passed on to her children. Nooone should make fun of her but hopefully someone will point out that it’s not healthy and she is not setting a good example for her children. She isnt curvy, she is morbidly obese.

  • charles m

    dnial,denial, denial. she wont live to be 49.

  • Marc W

    This is what is wrong with America, but it’s not her. It is the people who are so critical of others and make snyde comments while sitting comfortably behind their computer. For one thing, there is no one out there who has a perfect life, if you do, you are living the perfect lie. Now take that one aspect of your life that is no good, like your cigarettes for example, you might be thin, but you’re not exactly healthy. No, I would be willing to bet that everybody has one form of a problem or another. As far as complaining about driving up health premiums, blame your doctor and the practice of pharmaceutical companies getting away with billing items for far more than they should be. Take a look at George Burns vs. Jack Lalane. George lived to see his 100′th birthday and claimed he hated excercise, and smoked 3 cigars a day. Jack Lalane, the health and excercise nut, only made it to 95, he didn’t smoke, he excercised everyday, watched what he ate, and still had to have a triple bypass. Nope, just ask your life insurance company how many clients they had in 1930 that are still with them, exactly, EVERYONE DIES. Stop being critical of others, we all have our own problems to deal with.

    I feel bad because she is obviously in denial about her obesity. But the fat-shaming on this website has got to stop. There are worse epidemics,like the cancer epidemic, that are a drain on taxes. Not to mention, comments like these spur anorexia, another drain and equally as unhealthy (but also more acceptable as beautiful if the fashion world has anything to say about). Unless you have once lost 200 or more pounds yourself, you have no rights to judge this woman or say that it is simple. Obesity is genetic, but if you don’t have the resources (time, money, costly healthy food, a personal trainer, not to mention fitness education) then its incredibly hard to combat your genetic code. There is a reason why wealthy people tend to be thinner, they have the time and resources to stay that way. And personally, I believe there is nothing wrong with her not hating herself, just because she is obese doesn’t mean she should be depressed. She’s not a murderer, she has a family (yet people act like being obese is the worst thing someone, especially a woman, could be and that they should be in constant shame and guilt). Bullshit.

  • Jaymes

    Well… someone likes tapping that

  • http://yahoo doug turner

    It’s not for me but I am happy that someone can look past all that and love her.

  • RS

    A heart attack waiting to happen. And she seems pleased by it.

  • Gary

    I bet that she never thought that she would be adored by the hippies lol. :0)

  • Tom Leykis

    Those aren’t “hips”. That’s lard, plain and simple. She’s corpulently obese.

  • Kevin

    I have no issue with her doing this to herself as long as there are no affects on her children (inability to do expected parental responsibilities) or if she is economically viable enough to afford the hip replacements etc. that are inevitable, and not saddle tax payers with the expense. Otherwise, if she’s happy…it’s her body.

    • Kevin

      however anyone that thinks this is genetic is a fool….this is torturous abuse of food for decades coupled with no significant exercise. they are definitely people with larger hips, that is not a point of contention. these are not genetic. its not always how much you eat…its what you eat.

      • Karin

        Her heart is working double or triple overtime just to pump the blood through her body. She should really not be so selfish and think about how her hard her body is working for her.

        • Kevin

          Ms Karin…her arteries probably do resemble clogged fuel injectors misting the heart with blood. also where does she buy her underwear? that aside Ms Karin, isn’t your break time over and you need to get back to banging out some license plates or playing the harmonica?

          • Karin

            Maybe she freeballs, like you Kevin. Don’t deny that the free fresh-air feeling isn’t the best thing since white bread.

  • Dan

    It’s too bad she let it get to this point. She’s pretty and she has a nice personality. I can see why her husband loves her, but she is just too fat. I’ll bet she would have a nice curvy figure if she weighed 175 instead of 400. And it would be attractive. Women don’t have to be thin to be sexy, and really, the female body looks nicer with a little extra, but this is just too much.

  • Jerelyn

    Ok there are a lot if judgmental people on here. I for one are a single mom of 3 and i consider myself over-weight. I want to be around for my kids so i changed my diet, went to the gym 3 times a week as well as walk 2 miles twice a week. Seeing no results is discouraging. Any suggestions? I do not condone what she is doing to her body, but its her body.

    • Jim

      I think you need to go back to grammar school. For your kids’ sake.

  • nette

    if she lyks it i love it!everyone has to die she just might out live all u jack***s! every thing cost tax payers& SHE pays taxes just lyk us. unless u have had a weight issue u dont kn& never will kn what a person is goin threw! some people are just f$$$ING RUDE! she aint yo wife,mother,friend,cuzn,or aunt people have feelings big or small if u dont lyk it CLOSE YOUR DAMN EYES!

    • Mykelle

      I like you because all these other dumb fucks on here are so ignorant i hate that people are so judgmental like

  • john lake

    I like her, I would like to date her, but she is married. I do wish I could meet her.

  • shadale

    What’s wrong with a man loving his wife inside and out? I thought that is what TRUE love is all about. Look at Halle Berry? As beautiful as she is with a perfect body to add had a cheating husband. Come on , we all know that we all want to have that special someone to love us for life. Truth of the matter is ……..many people wish they can find someone to love them like this couple love eachother.My mom has been married twice and she is a size 3, if you want to talk about weight. Weight does not keep a marriage together …… Love does!
