It got so bad she aspired to be the fattest woman in the world, but now she is burning all the weight - after her new younger lover gave her a new lease for life.
Since splitting from her former fat-loving lover, Patty, 52, has shed 121kgs - and bagged herself a younger man in the process.
Now Patty's new boyfriend, Bryan Johnson, 38, is putting her through her paces with daily workouts - and plenty of exercise in the bedroom.
Bryan met her on a website for morbidly obese women, after months of chatting, moved in with her. He described their sex life as 'awesome'.
