Is Obesity A Choice?

Stop Picking on Donna Simpson

http://witchesbrewonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Donna-Simpson.png

Dear fatlings and admirers, the following  article appeared on a fat phobic site. Donna Simpson is a gainer girl with an admirable 1000 pound goal and now the the fat haters with their fat hate bingo are persecuting this feisty food slut.


This is the sort of fat hatred that really pisses me, Fat Bastard off.


I will leave any commentary for now up to the readers of Bigger Fatter Blog. While I could opine on the medical and bariatric nutritional issues I will leave that up to our resident experts, "Dr" Gerald Teddy Bear of the Biggest Fattest Blog, CG Brady, Rev BLA and Belly Boy. I will comment of other aspects of this assault on Ms Simpson. My comments will be in red. The artcle is in brown because it's a lot of shit!

Meet Donna Simpson. She's going to cost you. A lot.

Simpson, of Old Bridge, N.J., is 42 years old, has two kids and a boyfriend, and she weighs 602 pounds That's right ... 602 pounds.

She's on a diet, of course, because she has a goal in mind:

She wants to weigh 1,000 pounds.

That's right ... 1,000 pounds. It's a nice, extra-round figure — almost as big as what her unhealthy choices will ultimately cost taxpayers.

Slideshow: Woman Wants to Be 'World's Fattest'

Simpson claims she is normal and healthy, and she has a right to eat what she wants and weigh what she wants.

“I love eating and people love watching me eat,” she says. “It makes people happy, and I’m not harming anyone.”

But she needs to use a motor scooter when she goes grocery shopping, because she can't walk more than 20 feet. The human body, after all, is not designed to scarf down 12,000 calories a day in the quest to weigh half a ton.

That's what scooters are for dumb ass!

Simpson is definitely harming someone — herself, says Dr. Carla Wolper, a registered dietitian and research faculty member at the New York Obesity Research Center at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York.

And you, the taxpayer, could wind up paying for it.

“We don’t know her medical history, but one of the most dangerous health issues she faces is an increased risk of sudden death from having a heart attack due to electrical problems in the heart,” Wolper said.

Other possible causes of death for Simpson include stroke, immobility, breathing problems, congestive heart failure, diabetes, and inflammation of heart tissue. Each year, nearly 300,000 Americans die from heart failure.

We all have to die form something!

Simpson, experts say, is putting herself at risk for all these medical conditions, and those conditions have a hefty price tag.

“The baseline cost for someone like to go to the emergency room is $993 for one visit,” Daniel Emmer, public relations manager of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, the largest health insurance provider in New Jersey, told FOXNews.com.

Simpson’s main source of income to support herself financially is by appearing on a Web site where men pay to watch videos of her gorging on food and showing off her hundreds of pounds of extra bulge in a bikini.

But it's anyone's guess whether her revenue from Web videos will cover the cost of her inevitable health risks.

“Someone with diabetes costs $11,744 more per year to provide health care, which is twice as much as the average person,” Emmer said.

SO WHAT! Fat people and our medical maladies are fueling the struggling medical economy. Doctors need the extra money!

It is unclear what type of insurance Simpson has, if any. But there is no question that whatever her health care position is, it could come at a high cost.

“Obesity causes a minimum $1,429 increase, or 42 percent in medical costs,” Emmer said. “Research shows lifestyle choices and behaviors drive 87.5 percent of the cost for health care claims.”

This guy sounds like that skinny runt Obama. Again what would are already starving doctors do if it were not for us fatlings driving the economy?

“When people are very, very overweight, they are at an increased risk for a condition called prolonged QT syndorme,” Wolper told FoxNews.com.

Prolonged QT syndrome is a heart rhythm disorder that can potentially cause fast, chaotic heartbeats, the Mayo Clinic says on its Web site. In some cases, the heart may beat erratically for so long that it can cause sudden death.

"Another problem this woman faces is related to the circulatory system,” Wolper said. “When people are that big, circulation is often impaired in the legs. This can cause blood to pool in the legs leading to formation of blood clots. This leaves morbidly obese people at an increased risk for a pulmonary embolism.”

A pulmonary embolism occurs when one or more arteries in the lungs become blocked. In most cases, pulmonary embolism is caused by blood clots that travel to your lungs from another part of your body — most commonly, your legs, according to the Mayo Clinic. One of the major risk factors is excess weight, which increases the risk of blood clots, especially in women who smoke or have high blood pressure.

“The work of the heart is tremendously increased when someone is that big because there’s so much more blood in the body,” Wolper said. “When this happens, the heart has to pump against the pressure of all that fat that is pressing against the blood vessels, and as a result the heart enlarges, and not in a good way.”

As Simpson’s appetite increases, so will the cost of health care for the severe medical conditions that she is likely to have — conditions that are preventable by healthier lifestyle choices. Whereas her $750-a-week grocery bill is merely gastronomical, her hospital bills will be astronomical — and the taxpayers of New Jersey may well have to pay her tab.

Big fucking deal! Her quest should not only be government subsidized but so should all worthy fatlings!

Meanwhile, in her effort to boldly go where no woman has gone before, Simpson says she tries to stay sedentary, so she burns as few calories as necessary.

She consumes five times more than the recommended daily calories for a woman her age.

“My favorite food is sushi. But unlike others I can sit and eat 70 big pieces of sushi in one go,” she told the Daily Mail.

Ms Simpson is helping the fishing industry and the Japanese restaurant industry!

“I do love cakes and sweet things, doughnuts are my favorite.”



The current record for fattest 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.

Simpson is proud of the Guinness World Record she holds now for the world’s fattest mother, and her boyfriend is proud of her too.

YOU GO GIRL!

Philippe, 49, supports her thousand-pound goal, even if that is nearly seven times his own weight of 150 pounds.

“I think he’d like it if I was bigger,” Simpson said. “He’s a real belly man, and completely supports me.”

Philippe is a dedicated fat admirer!

Someday, the experts say, we all may support her.

I know I certainly support her!

Well, it looks like once again, I'm the first piggy to the trough by posting in this latest new topic.

OINK! OINK! OINK! OINK! OINK!

OK. I weigh 400 pound myself, but I don't have high blood pressure, and my cholesterol levels are actually lower than the average.

I don't have a rapid hear beat. Most of the time my pulse is usually in the upper 50s or lower 60s and the only time it goes up in the "normal" 70s or 80s per minute is when I'm under any kind of emotional stress, but when I'm calm and relaxed my pulse is in the upper 50s or lower 60s so I just naturally have a slower than average heart rate.

As for the cost of being in an emergency room at the hospital.

Back in July of 2001, I was living in a 2 bed room apartment, so I had a room mate. The rent and utilities were in my name and he was suppose to help pay part of the rent.

He was 5 years older, and he had his first stroke back in March of 1997, so he was unable to work anymore, and I helped him to apply for SSI disability.

Then back in 2001 he has his second stroke, suffered memory loss, became paranoid and delusional and violent.

Then one night, he came into my bed room and attacked me with a machete, fracturing my left wrist, and he struck me in the back of my head.

I ran out of the apartment, and down the stairs leaving a trail of blood behind me, and went to the pay phone on the corner and dialed 911.

About 5 minutes later, an ambulance, a fire truck, and two police cars arrived. As I was being strapped down to the gurney and lifted into the ambulance, I could see a police officer going into the apartment building with a shot gun.

I spent 3 days in the hospital, and my ex room mate was hauled off to the slammer.

I came home with my left arm a cast and a steel pin in my wrist. I'm left-handed by the way. My left forearm was in the cast for three weeks.

Now, my left wrist is all crippled up. I use to play the guitar, but I can't anymore because my left hand is all fucked up!

To be continued . . . . .

Teddy Bear said...

. . . continued from above

Now then, I have been obese most of my life since I was 13 years old, and being obese has never done me any harm.

So, my obesity is not costing the tax payers any money. I would say, that my being in the emergency room, and my three days in the hospital as a crime victim probably cost the tax payers far more money than my obesity.

My ex room mate was not obese. Overweight, yes, but obese, no! He was about an inch shorter than I am, and while I now weigh 400 pound at 5 feet 6 inches, he weighed about 195 pounds, so he was only half my present weight, but he had high blood pressure, and high cholesterol where as, I don't.

I have known skinny guys who had high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, and the first time I have ever seen somebody having a heart attack, it was some skinny guy.

I have read recent medical articles that when fat people and thin people have heart attacks, the fat person actually has a better chance of surviving and recovering from it.

Yeah, it's probably true that a fat person is more likely to have a heart attack than a thin person, but a fat person is also more likely to survive the heart attack and recover from it than a thin person.

As for Donna Simpson.

I fully support her all the way. If she is happy being fat, and wants to get fatter, then that's her business.

Of course, I'm concerned that she is a mother with a young child, so she does need to take that into consideration.

But instead of people bitching about how much obesity is costing the tax payers, we should be more concerned about violent crimes and how much it cost the tax payers.

Also, bullying in our schools, and how the jocks get all kinds of special privileges and are able to get away with bullying the brighter and more academically gifted students around, and how the bullying has even been the cause of suicide among the victims of such bullying, we should be more concerned about what cost of that is to society.

And believe me, the cost is much greater than people being fat.

I rest my case.

Next case!!!

Fat Bastard said...

Happy Oinking New Year Teddy!

Wow! That story about your demented roomie is chilling. Scary stuff!

I have read a lot of conflicting data on the costs of obesity. What I did read is that we fatlings end up costing the health care system less simply because we die sooner.

Thinlings look at things differently. Proud FA stays in great shape and eats mindfully because he likes fucking more than eating where as I, Fat Bastard like food more than sex. Donna Simpson seems to have the best of both worlds as do many BBWs and SSBBWs. Of course there are exceptions such as the Chef who makes sweet love to BBWs although he "ain't got no wood for them SSBBWs God bless em"

This chick knows how it's done. Your body can be a money making machine when you reach extreme weights. She's on the ball. Not only will people pay to watch you- much like they pay to watch elephants and freakshows- but they will probably pay to bed you as well. And with 30 000 calories down the gullet, I'll bet she's got plenty of energy to rock that chub. It's probably one of the only range of motions she has left, but arm-to-mouth and hump-hump are the only two necessary for the good life, eh?

OINK!

I don’t know anything about Donna Simpson other than what I just read in the article and as far as I’m concerned Mrs. Simpson has a right to do with her life as she will and anyone who promotes the idea that she is somehow doing something immoral or wrong needs to mind their own business. But I’m not here to discuss Mrs. Simpson or the socially intrusive assholes who would interject their worthless opinion in on this obviously private matter.
But I did know the woman in question mentioned in the article as the current fattest woman. Her name was Renee Scarfa and I knew her and her then fiancé since the late 70s. Renee was one of the last actual carnival fat ladies of the last century. I worked for the same entertainment company that Renee was contracted under and was attached t to her as an aide, driver and general gofer for 4 of the east coast carnival seasons. Renee was a blast to work with and one of the most generous warm and fun loving people I ever had the pleasure of knowing her fiancé Jim was madly in love with Renee and spent most of his time caring for her and seeing to her every need. She was also quite pretty having natural deep red hair, bright blue eyes and fair sun freckled skin She also had this gentle and agreeable nature that would put you instantly at ease in her company. She also had fantastic sense of humor and her exuberant laughter was literally infectious and would brighten even the gloomiest situation. On top of this she had an almost uncontrollable aprtite for romance as well. Her sexual exploits were almost legend on the carnival circuit and it was well know that if the fat ladies trailer was a rocken, better not come a knocken.
Renee’s enormous weight was solely due to the fact that she couldn’t stop eating. She was hungry 24 hrs a day and nothing you could do would satisfy her hunger. It was not unusual for her to drink a case of coke a day and to eat at least two large pizzas in one sitting. During her days traveling with carnivals her diet consisted of funnel cakes, cheese burgers, French fries, and her favorite steak sandwiches. She was a veritable eating machine and it doesn’t surprise me that she died weighing as much as she did.
When I first met Renee she weighed in at slightly over 850lbs and when she finally quite the carnival circuit her weight had increased to over 1200lbs. Her size and weight became just too much to deal with while traveling the carnival circuit and she was forced to retire.
Renee and I slowly drifted apart as friends once she retired. Her and Jim eventually settled down to a more conventional life but ultimately split apart as lovers and although they remained good friends eventually pursued different life paths.
When I first heard about her death I was deeply saddened and regretted not keeping closer touch with that remarkable lady. My time acquainted with Renee has seemed all to short and I hope one day to contact the people who knew her best and learn more about her life. It seems very strange to me that more isn’t known about her as she was an amazing individual and achieved a weight that will probably never be surpassed by another human.

Donna Simpson is an inspiration to all real fatlings. I salute her in her endeavors and I sincerely hope she reaches her goal. Everyone has a right to dream and dreaming big is the only worthwhile way to do it. If Donna actually reaches her goal I think she will have reached female perfection and I do not think anyone has the right to attack her or criticize her for wanting to improve herself.
Most of the more ridiculous arguments I’ve seen on the net that surround this issue concern the welfare of her children. For some strange reason people think that a fat woman isn’t a fit mother. People criticize what they don’t understand and they don’t understand that food is love and a fat mom is a loving mom who by virtue of her size shows off her capacity for being loved and giving love in return.
There is always this very vocal number of people who believe that they have a right to impose their beliefs on others and judge them based on their own narrow view of the world. These creatures need to be shut-up by any means necessary. They are the true danger to our society because they believe that rights of free speech some how give them the privilege to step all over the rights of others. This is not acceptable behavior in our society. People like Donna Simpson have a right to seek happiness how they please and neither you nor I have a right to deny her that or criticize her for it.

Fat Bastard said...

Wolf you make a great point. Nobody complained about Evel Kenevil death defying feats.

Donna Simpson is to gaining what Michael Jordan was to basketball. She is a true inspiration to gainers and feeders everywhere.

I have one word of advice to Donna Simpson and that word is EAT!

Proud FA said...

I don't think Donna Simpson is over 600 pounds. I have porked a lot of fat girls and she looks to be about 500. I do like that inverted heart shaped pannus.

Does anyone know anything about the above referenced woman? Perhaps Fat Bastard and company show look into this. Perhaps some family members could give some insight into her life. If she was indeed the current fattest women on record one would think she would be better known.

@ Proud FA.

Size can be deceiving when it comes to women. They tend to come in a variety of shapes and depending on height, musculature and frame their weight can vary greatly. Donna Simpson obviously carries most of her bulk in her belly, by comparison her arms and legs appear to be not nearly as massive as her stomach. This adds to the deception that she may not weigh as much as she claims. Also apple shaped women like Donna carry more visceral fat than their pear shaped counter parts, making an exact determination of their weight difficult through visual means alone. Furthermore I’m sure pictures do not do her justice in terms of her size. While I agree she doesn’t look 600lbs from the evidence we have at our disposal I personally would reserve judgment until seeing her in the flesh.

I’ve come to this conclusion by way of experience. My wife is of average height and well over 600 lbs. In fact she weighed in at 662 lbs as of this morning. My wife is somewhat more pear shaped than Mrs. Simpson but she also has a very sizable belly that includes a large panny. Her arms are heavy and in proportion as well. At first glance her reasonably well proportioned all around large shape gives her a look that makes her weight almost impossible to gage from a photograph. The only way to get a real feel for her size is to see her in comparison to another individual or to experience her presence first hand. Once seeing her up close and personal, her girth, size and the degree of difficulty she shows in her physical movement leaves little doubt in regard to the believability of her current weight.

Fred Feeds said...

I have to agree with Proud FA. Donna in an impressive sow but she may be pumping up the numbers a bit. She does have a commercial enterprise going and there is a reason for he to exaggerate. I for one would like to see a weigh-in.

What you be really hot would to see her put in a whale sling and weighed. The drama and anticipation would be incredible.

Donna should also to a live monthly weigh-in 50/50 raffle. Everyone puts in 20 bucks and a guess and the one who comes closest wins. Or allow the winner to feed Donna.

People are probably picking on Donna cos she is hurting herself for some selfish, attention seeking goal, or a bone lazy $ goal. If you don't believe the Drs in the USA perhaps think about the fact that obesity has been monitored & studied for yrs now e.g. Australia, UK,Canada, South America, Greece, New Zealand etc. I'm sure all the research across all these countries across 50+ yrs is a pack of lies just to make $ off fat people like you!!! Here's a news flash, Australia has an obesity epidemic!! The obesity of our nation has increased in the last 50yrs, our children are facing dying before their parents from obsesity for goodness sake!

The other thing that makes people so angry about Donna is the piggery & selfishness of eating an alleged $750 per wk of food! While there are desperately poor people in the world, including the US! What abt thinking abt some poor kid on welfare in her own country even. If she gave just one child a wk $25 of the $ she shoved in her mouth instead, we might start to see her as a human being & not a pig. So what if she "earns the $" on some lame website. Its the principal. I'm on welfare while I look for a 2nd job in Australia, I have one job but it doesn't earn enuf. Im v lucky to live in Aust where the govt supports us like it does. Welfare for 1 adult is $450 AU per f/n. That is plenty for me to live on, pay bills, groceries etc. & she shoves more than that in her mouth per wk??? Come on? There is a 7yr old child in Bangladesh raising 2 siblngs after a flood i.e. orphans getting by on bugger all, while she feeds her selfish western face like that. Yeah she should have her child taken off her. In Aust, someone who is going to make themselves so fat they will be bed ridden therefore disabled that would be deemed unfit to parent & what a class act father that thinks that makes a fit mother. They are one sick pair of parents. How well did things go for the last fattest woman in America, um yeah thats right she got so fat she died. I was a vietnemase war orphan, and was 16pounds at 4yrs old when I was adopted by my Aussie family, and nurtured back to health. I nearly died of starvation. And this isnt just a rant from someone who has never been fat or struggled with obesity. I am considered obese. My BMI is 35. I was 98kgs (215.6lbs) I had lapband surgery, on reflection, I chose it as a lzay option. I hadn't pulled my finger out & made the effort to change eating habits etc. I did lose a modest amount of wt with it. I went down to abt 88kgs (193.6lbs)I've now lost another 4kgs because I've made an effort with diet and exercise and hope to keep it up. I know its hard, it freaking hard. I know what its like to use food to eat for soothing or mood altering or whatever. What I don't get is just letting rip & rip & rip & pretending its fine & not a massive health risk &/or total denial & hiding behind this fat is normal, or beautiful, feeders are normal shit etc. What science do you fat people base yr research of fat doesn't kill on? IF any of u had any real intelligence u wd know that medicine & science has to repeat studies/research over & over again, over yrs. You are all just kidding yrselves that nothing is gonna go wrong. U should all go go look at a type 2 diabetes complication ward one day if u are the really gutsy courageous carefree type of people u claim to be, just see how gr8 the people with obesity related/induced type 2 diabetes with, bilndness, leg eating ulcers, & 5hrs 5days a wk of dialysis r doing.

Dahlia said...

i have to say as a fellow fat person i find what she is doing disgusting and some of your comments sounded very arrogant "we all have to die from something." was one of them i have family members that died from hert attack and all i have to say is that comment is offensive people should die peacefully. thats like saying some one got shot and say well we all die from something. im all for freedom to the pursuit of happiness but i hope she realize that this can harm her baby what if she dies. the kids would be left with out a mother. im usually defending fat people but theres times when we have to think shes making us all look bad. like i said im a fellow fat person but i dont exploit my fat to the world and some of the things guys make her do is highly degrading.
until next time peace and love dahlia
