The Woman Who Wants To Be World’s Fattest Closes In On 1,000 lb

To counterbalance the articles on this site bemoaning the increasing rates of obesity, here’s one from the Daily Mail (where else?) about Donna Simpson, the New Jersey woman who is already gargantuan and wants to become even fatter to set a new world record:

Donna Simpson already weighs 43st, but she is determined to nearly double her size to become the world’s fattest woman. The 42-year-old from New Jersey, U.S, is set on reaching the 1,000lb mark (71st) in just two years. Remarkably she insists she is healthy, despite now needing a mobility scooter when she goes shopping.

Donna Simpson already weighs 43 stone but is consuming an astonishing 12,000 calories a day in a quest to become the world’s fattest woman. ‘My favourite food is sushi, but unlike others I can sit and eat 70 big pieces of sushi in one go,’ she said. ‘I do love cakes and sweet things, doughnuts are my favourite.’

Donna, who wears XXXXXXXL dresses, eats mounds of junk food and tries to move as little as possible. Ms Simpson already holds the Guinness World Record as the world’s fattest mother, when she gave birth in 2007 weighing 38stone. She needed a team of 30 medics to deliver her daughter Jacqueline during a high-risk Caesarean birth.

Yet although she can only move 20ft before needing to sit down, she wants to be even bigger.
‘I’d love to be 1,000lb,’ she said…

    If you need a mobility scooter to get around your Wal-Mart, you are not healthy.

  2. That's a pretty dang inefficient way to kill yourself.

  3. You know, I get that she has a long term partner who is a fetishist and everything. However, what I don't get is why the hell he wouldn't say something. I mean if you really give half a damn about the person, the actual person, you should step in and say something at some point right? At what point is enough enough? And they have a kid, I mean that environment can't be healthy on a kid, and the mother obviously has a very severe eating disorder, or some sort of body dismorphism thing, which could affect the kid badly. The state has to know about this, right? Half a ton is a goal? really? I've seen elevators that top out at 800 lbs. She can't go twenty feet without sitting down to catch her breath, how can she possibly think that's healthy?

    • I almost forgot, I love the part where it says she thinks “running” after her daughter will make her half ton goal hard to achieve, right after saying she's healthy. It really makes the article…okay, I'll stop ranting now, the microchip in my brain that heats up when I'm exposed to idiocy feels like its going to burn its way out at any moment.

      Healthy? Seriously?

      Her mental health should be in question before her physical health. Anyone who would intentionally do that to their bodies, eating way more than needed, specifically eating crap, making a point of not exercising has body issues just as serious as an anorexic or bulimic.

      It is a stupid, stupid eating disorder for certain.

      I don't understand it. At least I can understand social pressures forcing someone to *lose* too much weight, but to *gain* it makes no sense.

      Is her husband using this is a form of control over his wife? A way to keep her dependent and submissive because she physically *cannot* help herself?

      The entire situation makes my head hurt.

      • You know, the weight as a control issue thing never really crossed my mind, that's an interesting take on it though. While I feel awful that she feels the need to do this to herself, I suppose it's ultimately her fault, whatever she chooses to do. But it's an incredibly selfish thing to do when you have children, so, given the publicity I only have one question remaining: where's DHS?

  4. This reminds me of the other Simpson family, when Homer bulks up to collect on disability.

  5. oh god that's filthy.

  6. only in America.

    I dont mean to sound cruel but they should ship her into a starving village and let them eat her.

  7. Anyone ever seen the movie Seven? LOL.
