(Newser) – Guinness already recognizes Donna Simpson as the fattest mother, but she's shooting even higher: The New Jersey mom is looking to become the world's fattest woman. Though she's already 600 pounds and needs a mobility scooter to get around, the 42-year-old's target weight is 1,000 pounds. Simpson says she is healthy, and is encouraged by her husband and fans of her website, where men pay to watch her eat fast food on a webcam.

"They send me gifts through the post," she says of her fans, "like protein shakes to help me put on weight faster." Pay-per-view income helps with a grocery bill that runs about $750 a week. "I love eating and people love watching me eat," she tells the Daily Mail. "It makes people happy, and I'm not harming anyone." Her husband, whom she met through her website, would "like it if I was bigger," Simpson says. "He's a real belly man, and completely supports me."
