Donna Simpson is hoping to become the world's fattest woman.

Mar 17, 2010
An obese mother in the US is trying to put on weight in order to become the world's fattest woman.

Donna Simpson, from New Jersey, weighs 273kg but told the Daily Mail newspaper she had her heart set on reaching her goal weight of 1000lb (450kg) in 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 241kg.

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

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.

"I do love cakes and sweet things, doughnuts are my favourite," she said.

    That is possibly the saddest thing I have ever heard. I agree with the comments that others have made regarding her mental state and craving attention. It's like kids who do bad things because that is the only way they ever get attention. To them negative attention is better than none. She definitely needs some psychoanalysis.

    She can't kid me. She is trying to kill herself. She is drawing attention to herself in order to do the suicide in a socially acceptable way, while crying out for help at the same time.

    Once again, I just gotta say (others have posted on this and I've responded similarly each time) - I have NEVER been so ASHAMED to live in NJ as I am now - the $#!#@! idiot lives not too far away from me......definitely GOTTA MOVE now!

    I don't blame anyone for making that state the butt of any joke - in fact, I'll have to JOIN THEM.....

    Obviously she has some issues beyond her overeating to treat herself so abusively.
    Very sad is right.
