Donna Simpson -- a different kind of weight goal.

I copied the article about a woman's goal to be the fattest woman in the world from 9NEWS. AMAZING to say the least.

Woman aims to become world's fattest

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.
She currently weighs 273kg = 600lb, she is trying to put on 400lbs in two years. Let me do the math for you, that is 3.83 lbs/wk

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 feel sorry for the baby! My other comments on her partner are just not fit for print. She can commit to gaining weight, but she has a "partner" before having a kid.

"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.
Hard....WTF. Imaging later in life, I can't play with you now, I am trying to bulk up.

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.
Think about that. You are too fat to go shopping, so you have a little electric scooter that transports you so that YOU CAN BUY MORE FOOD

"I do love cakes and sweet things, doughnuts are my favourite," she said.
If by your own admission, you eat 12,000 calories a day, do you really need a favorite? Also, you eat 750 calories per waking hour. That is:
* 16 Chicken McNuggets/hour, or
* a 12oz AND a 16oz Triple Thick Shake/hour or
* 3 apple pies
* A McChicken and a McDouble -- or if you put the McChicken inside the McDouble, you have a McMiracle -- per hour

Just to give the reading public a frame of reference, I had the said McMiracle once, and I honestly did not want to see food for the next 12 hours. Or looked at another way, she has to eat OVER 1 McNugget every four minutes just to keep on point. That is just amazing.

Ms Simpson said she also loved eating sushi and would often eat 70 big pieces in one go.
I wonder if she uses chopsticks, because she would have to eat 1 piece a minute for 20 minutes to keep up with 750 cal/hour. That gives new meaning to "You will be hungry in one hour. Also, using chopsticks burns more calories. You actually have to think that way. I know a powerlifter who was trying to gain wait and actually wouldn't sleep more than 3 hours. He would set his alarm so that he would wake up and eat."

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.
Has to be the "Boyfriend of the Year" right there.

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.
Again, 750 calories/waking hour. Again, this is her job.

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.
That is $42,380/yr. After taxes. Also if you are gaining almost 4lbs/week, you are going to need new clothes.

Maybe this personal training gig is the wrong career path. Anybody want to watch me eat some junk food. $29.95/mo, unlimited access. Or for the best value, pay for 12 month as at the low rate of $14.95/mo. You can pay by credit card or electronic check.

To be honest, if this works out and she makes a living eating and having people watch her, she should be invited to Cornell Business School to do a seminar. He food bill will be more than the hotel and rental car combined. Try explaining that on an expense report. Just like those people who organized that orgy at the gym at Sykes.

I can always respect people that have a goal. I did the math just to show how "hard" it is. I don't make fun of overweight people because it is not my nature.

That is pretty sickening. Guess when she needs medical care, we will have to pay for her. She will probably start saying she has a disability also... Like it says in the RKC Manual "It's Your Fault."
