If you were feeling a little insecure this morning because you thought you had the world's biggest hips (its a little random that you would be thinking that) then this might make you feel better!
BEHOLD! The World's Largest Hips belong to a woman named Mikel Ruffinelli. This proud hip owner is 40 years old and a mother of 4. Her hips measure an AMAZING 8 feet in circumferece, thats the length of a professional pool table!
At 5ft4 and 420 pounds, Ruffinelli consumes 3,000 calories a day to keep her "bootylicious" figure.
She credits her four pregnancies for her unusually large hips. Ruffinelli began gaining weight at age 22 after the birth of her son Andrew and her hips ballooned with her three subsequent pregnancies.
Ruffinelli tried to lose weight through milkshake and other fad diets in the past, but now she claims to be happy with her body and works hard to stay healthy. As she can't run on land, she works out through water aerobics classes.
Mikel Ruffinelli: I don’t want to get bigger, but I don’t want to lose my curves. I look great. I hope I inspire women to think, ‘She’s happy with her body and I can be too!’”
YOU GO GIRL!
Here are some more pics of Mikel and her record holding hips!
