It might be something Kim Kardashian fans aspire to, but for this mom, it's a daily nightmare.

Lerato Pitso (50) from South Hills, Johannesburg is leered at and heckled constantly because of her oversize bottom. The market researcher says she is a "laughing stock" everywhere she goes, and can't find a serious relationship because of it. "At one stage I wanted to commit suicide because I felt like I'm not good enough," she told MailOnline"Men only want to sleep with me. They don't love me."

Despite this, she says it's not men who humiliate her the most -- it's women.

"Sometimes I hear a camera's shutter and when I turn to see what is happening, I see people taking pictures of my backside."

After suffering a pulmonary embolism attack in 2013, she's been on a mission to lose weight. She evem took part in City of Johannesburg’s Weight Loss Challenge this year.

“I’ve been battling with my weight since I was a teenager. I’ve tried every diet available but nothing worked. "

Since then, she's been following a low carb, high protein diet, and hopes to lose more weight.
