I am just shaking my head at the following article, at the idea that someone would aspire to the idea of weighing 1000 pounds. Morbid obesity of such an extreme is akin to aspiring to ingest a slow killing toxin on a daily basis.

I can hear the obit now: "Her greatest dream in life was to make sure that she couldn't walk, could not fit through the door of the house, could not possibly find jeans that fit, to have continual open sores on her body from the weight and rolls of fat...she achieved that and more in her short life..."

From the National Post:

Woman aspires to weigh 1,000 pounds

Donna Simpson is setting a two-year goal to reach her ideal weight. So of course, she is on a diet — of cakes, doughnuts and loads of fast food. But don't worry, she isn't cheating her food plan. The 42-year-old New Jersey mother's goal is to go from 600 pounds to a whopping 1,000.

Simpson, in an interview with the Daily Mail, says she wants to be the world's fattest woman. She already holds the Guinness World Record as the World's Fattest Mother — and needed 30 people to assist in the delivery of her daughter.

She will try to eat 12,000 calories a day to make her dream come true.

From the Daily Mail:

"'I'd love to be 1,000lb,' she said. 'It might be hard though. Running after my daughter keeps my weight down.'"

But Simpson admits that she needs a motor scooter to get around and can only walk 20 feet before becoming too fatigued to continue. While adding an extra 400 pounds is a feat in itself, it is does not come cheap. But do not fret, budding weight-gainers — you can follow Simpson's lead and set up a website to collect money from people who want to watch you eat. Yes, this is how she can afford the $750 grocery bill.
