OK, so I’m not sure I understand this entirely. This lady is already a monstrosity (600+ pounds), of her own choosing. She doesn’t have a disorder that makes it impossible to lose weight, either. So why would she be in the news? Surely there are many large people out there.
This fine specimen from New Jersey endeavors to become the world’s fattest woman. She has her heart set on reaching her goal weight of 1000 pounds in two years.
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 favorite,” she said.
Ms Simpson said she also loved eating sushi and would often eat 70 big pieces in one go.
Her 49-year-old partner Philippe — who she met 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 men pay to watch her consume fast food.
