Susanne Eman & Donna Simpson Compete for "Fattest Person Ever"

Last week wetoldyou about Susanne Eman (left), the Arizona mother who is attempting to eat her way to becoming the fattest person in history. She already tips the scale at 728-pounds on her way to her goal of 1,600 pounds.

Along the way, she passed Donna Simpson, the New Jersey woman who weighs a svelte 700-pounds. Simpson has a more modestgoal-- she only wants to weigh 1,000 pounds.

The fattest person ever was Jon Brower Minnoch, who at one point weighed 1,400 pounds. He also is the record holder for most weight lost -- 920 pounds.

But it doesn't sound like either Eman or Simpson is interested in losing any of their weight.

"The bigger I get, the better I feel. I feel confident and sexy,” said the 32-year-old Eman.
"Why not see how fat I can get? I want to break the stigma that being fat is a bad thing."

Simpson agrees. "I eat as much as I want, whenever I want."

She even gets paid to make appearances where people watch her eat.

"I love eating and people love watching me eat," the 43-year-old said. "It makes people happy, and I'm not harming anyone."

If Eman or Simpson set the record, it will officially go undocumented. That's because the Guinness Book of Records, which makes such things official, no longer lists records that could endanger a person's health, like fattest person.

But rest assured the Internet and its thousands of news sites will make sure the word gets out.
