Heaviest living woman and heaviest Mum to
give Birth - Donna Simpson sets world records
OLD BRIDGE, NJ, USA -- Donna Simpson, 42,
of Old Bridge, a model for SupersizedBombshells.com, weighs
604 pounds (273 kg) and sets the world record for the Heaviest
living woman; she had a daughter in 2007 at 532 pounds
, setting the world record for the heaviest
Mum to give Birth.
"I have fans who send me baklava and cheese
cake and everything else you can imagine," Simpson, told ABC
News. "I'm heavy and I wouldn't mind being heavier."
She said her boyfriend, 150-pound Philippe Gouamba,
49, encourages her to eat. "I think he'd like it if I was
bigger," Simpson said. "He's a real belly man, and completely
Donna Simpson told the Daily Mail newspaper
she had her heart set on reaching her goal weight of 1000lb
(450kg) in two years.
"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.
Ms Simpson said she also loved eating sushi
and would often eat 70 big pieces in one go. Donna, who wears
XXXXXXXL dresses, eats mounds of junk food and tries to move
as little as possible.
Donna's weight problem began early. Her
mother made big meals for Donna and her brothers and gave
them lots of treats and fattening food.
By the time Donna was nine, she weighed 13 stone.
'Food was her way of showing she loved us, she wanted us to
eat, and she was very protective of us,' Ms Simpson said.
'She wouldn't let anyone say anything bad to us about our
weight. She would argue with doctors who said it was dangerous.'
But as she got older, Donna began to worry
about her weight and started taking diet pills. Between the
ages 14 and 18 she slimmed down to 11 stone, but was still
unhappy. 'Dieting just made me miserable because I was thinking
about food all the time.,' she said. After she left school,
Donna got a desk job and no longer felt the need to fit in
with other girls. 'I felt so much better when the weight came
back,' she said. 'It felt like who I was meant to be.'
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.
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.
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.
'I love eating and people love watching
me eat,' she said. 'It makes people happy, and I'm not harming
The Guinness World Record for fattest
ever woman is held by a woman also from New Jersey, who weighed
an unbelievable 1,800 pounds when she died in 2008. She was
49 years old. WARNING: World Record Academy will
NOT accept her possible future 'record' - if that's record
is based on a gaining weight plan; maybe she can try another
