Obese Woman Aims for 1000-Pound Weight Goal

Obese individuals usually suffer from numerous health issues related to their weight. So, why does one Jersey woman want to tip the scales at 1000 pounds?

A New Jersey woman has a remarkable personal goal, and will stop at nothing until she reaches it. She wants to weigh 1,000 pounds and become the world’s fattest woman.

Donna Simpson, 42, already weighs 602 pounds and is forced to use a motorized cart when grocery shopping, because she can’t walk more than 20 feet. But, despite her physical challenges, she insists she’s healthy.

Simpson already holds the Guinness World Record for being the world’s biggest mom. She was 520 pounds when she gave birth to her daughter, who is now three. Ironically, Simpson notes that reaching 1,000 pounds may prove to be difficult, because as she told the UK’s Daily Mail, “running after my daughter keeps my weight down.”

Simpson met her boyfriend, Philippe, seven years ago on a plus size dating site. Although some might expect him to encourage his beloved to slim down, since he himself weighs only 150 pounds, Philippe is a self confessed fat admirer and admit he wants her to put on the pounds.

She currently spends $750 a week on groceries, which she funds by running her own website, where viewers pay to watch her eat, or to see her wash her body on camera. She strives to eat about 12,000 calories a day to reach her goal – which is 10,000 calories more than the average woman needs daily. Although Simpson insists her goal doesn’t hurt anyone, taxpayers will likely have to help foot the bill for the inevitable medical costs associated with the myriad diseases related to obesity for which she is at high risk, including diabetes and congestive heart failure.

“Someone with diabetes costs $11,744 more per year to provide health care, which is twice as much as the average person,” Daniel Emmer, public relations manager of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, the largest health insurance provider in New Jersey, told FOXNews.com. Whether Simpson has insurance coverage is unknown.

    I read in Google News today that the Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet doctor has offered her 50,000 bucks to stop trying to gain weight! Ha! I’ll do it for 25,000!

    I heard about her in one of my class lectures, it seriously blows my mind that this lady is willing and striving to do this it is a ridiculous goal and she should take the doctor up on his offer. She is acting selfish and not even thinking about her poor daughter who will be the one who is left without a mother after her heart gives up due to her weight. As for her partner, he should really think about all of the damage this is doing to his daughter.

    It is official. I have seen it all. I don’t know whether to be disgusted or shocked–I think I’m both. I feel like this woman has simply decided that it is too damn hard to get rid of the weight, so she is shooting for her goal AND CERTAIN DEATH as a way to be completely irresponsible. The message she is sending her child is attrocious. And her claim that she is ‘healthy’ almost made me laugh. She has to shop for her massive groceries each week using a motorized cart due to not being able to WALK 20 feet. That’s healthy?? Oh and I would love to see her “run after her daughter.” I would imagine the only reason she would “run after” anyone would be if that person had a FRIED CHICKEN LEG she wanted. In a world filled with “shock me if you can” antics, this whopper of a person may be able to do just that-shock anyone that sees her. Wonder who gets to foot the bill when her montrous size starts taking its toll on her organs, huh?? Taxpayers?? I can’t imagine she has insurance–she’s apparently unemployed….how the hell would she even GET to work? She’s gross. And her eating is so selfish, I am wondering why her kid hasn’t been taken from her–she obviously has some mental issues.

    This isnt about obesity – this is about fetishism and exhibitionism. Different part of the brain, different psychosocial issues.

    i hate to be judgmental but you are hurting someone else you are hurting your daughter and making a fool of yourself. i work in the medical feild and i am overweight i do not weight anywhere near what you weigh. and i have alot of health problems. and if you cannot walk any further than 20 feet without giving out how do you take care of you daughter. there is no way you can reach and bath the private parts of your body. i know without being around you you you have body odor and need help to meet your basic needs of daily living.

    Her weight more than likely not because of her battle with food, nor is it a question of laziness. This woman has an acute psychological and brain chemical imbalance. A lifetime of dieting is more than likely the reason for her obesity. I hope a professional can help her before it is too late.

    This woman is obviously insane. She is deluding herself when she says she’s healthy. What an idiot!

    How does she take care of her basic hygiene needs, for instance, after she goes to the toilet?

    The funny part is.. all the health nazis here have no idea just how many feedees are out there. There are thousands of web models like her (I guess for guys who like fat girls) all fattening themselves up.

    Strange but eh.. live and let live.
