In the age of the current euphoria to get the thinnest possible – some have died in the process to become one, here comes a New Jersey female of 42 years to reach and cross the 1000lb. mark. She goes by the name Donna Simpson. At present, she weighs more than 590lbs. She is determined to reach her goal.
Reaching any kind of goal is pretty hard. However, she is more than half way to get there. She insists she is healthy, despite now that she needs a mobility scooter when she goes shopping. The scooter store does not need to advertise to Donna. She has fallen in their lap for a mound of reasons.
Way to go Donna. I salute you. You are giving us a lesson to be ourselves. In your case, that would be multiple of myself many times over. Donna wears XXXXXXXL dresses, eats mounds of junk food and tries to move as little as possible. She already holds the Guinness World Record as the world’s fattest mother, when she gave birth in 2007 weighing 535 lbs.
She will get there but she has a problem, she says. Running after her daughter keeps her weight down. Poor baby. That is a definite bummer. Her longtime significant half weighs 150lbs and that can create problem for the both of them especially when she meets her goal of 1000lbs.
In any case, it’s a free country. At least, Donna, you are not at the mercy of some modeling agency to tell you to eat less than 500 calories worth of food a day. Girls of that nature starve to death and some literally do with depression all around them. The biggest credit that I can give you is that you are not doing it for any kind of money.
The moral of the story
I think there is a lesson for all of us, especially for those species of humankind that are at the mercy of advertisers and fashion juggernaut houses of modeling agencies. To not play in the hands of the advertisers these days, by itself, is a mirage of the utmost.
Oh! Houses of all fashions of the world. Leave the poor babies alone. Most have no guts, unlike Donna, to say NO to the barrage and bombardment of advertisement that have been floating around on all sorts of media.
I genuinely and wholeheartedly salute you, Donna. Keep up the good work of being yourself.
