44-year-old Donna Simpson, who holds the Guinness World Record for "World's Heaviest Mother", decided to leave that life behind.
She was something of an Internet phenomenon. 44-year-old Donna Simpson became the Guinness World Records’ “World’s Heaviest Mother.” She ran a pay-per-view website where people around the world would pay to watch her eat. “Here I did a set where I’m actually handcuffed to the refrigerator, and I had to start eating everything in the refrigerator. (FLASH) Just like a supermodel wants to be thinner, I think I look sexier bigger, and so does a lot of people.” That was back in 2010, when she reportedly weighed more than 600 pounds -- and she told reporters she’d like to get to 1,000 pounds. But earlier this year -- she decided, she no longer wanted that. “Donna has broken up with her fiance of five years. And she's decided that she needs to lose weight for the sake of her family. Simpson's ex loved her ‘curves and rolls of fat.’ He was a feeder - interested in keeping Simpson as heavy as she could be. Now, she want to change. She's at 5'2" and 600 lbs., and would like to get down to 370.” So she’s no longer running that pay-per-view eating website either, and the Associated Press reports... “The underground community is involved in a rare form of masochism known as feederism ... People gain satisfaction by watching others eat and become overweight. … Simpson has moved away from the Internet days, though many are angry that she has exposed a rare, underground community. Others are mad that they can no longer see her.” But she does run a blog -- its front page says this: “To the many fans that have become members of my websites I ask that you understand that this is not an easy decision and I thank you for your love and support. But this is something that I must do for myself and my family and I ask that you take your last looks at the old Donna.”
