She wants to be the World's Fattest Woman

A very big woman has a goal, she is trying to put on enough weight in order to become the world's fattest woman.

Donna Simpson, from New Jersey, weighs in at 602 pounds, but said she had her sights set on reaching her goal weight of 1000 pounds over the next two years.

The 42-year-old already holds the title of the world's fattest mother after giving birth to her daughter in 2007 when she weighed only 531 pounds.
She needed a team of 30 medics to deliver her daughter Jacqueline during a high-risk Caesarean birth.

"I'd love to be 1000lb ... it might be hard though, running after my daughter keeps my weight down," Ms Simpson said.

Ms Simpson, who needs a mobility scooter to go shopping, eats huge amounts of junk food each week and tries to move as little as possible so she doesn't burn off as many calories. (smart thinking)
"I do love cakes and sweet things, doughnuts are my favourite," she said.

Her 49-year-old partner Philippe (seen below) she met him on a dating site for plus-size people — was encouraging her to reach her goal, she said.

"I think he'd like it if I was bigger ... he's a real belly man and completely supports me," she said.

To put on enough weight, Ms Simpson will need to eat 12,000 calories a day, which is six times the recommended daily intake for women.

In order to pay for the enormous amounts of food she is eating — her weekly grocery bill is $815 Ms Simpson makes money by running a website where people pay to watch her consume fast food.
'I love eating and people love watching me eat,' she said.
'It makes people happy, and I'm not harming anyone.'

She insists she's healthy.
