A New Jersey mother is vying to be the world's heaviest woman.
Donna Simpson currently weighs about 600 pounds. Her goal is to gain another 400 pounds to reach the 1,000-pound mark over the next two years.
Simpson already holds the Guinness world record as the heaviest mother, earning the title when she gave birth to her daughter in 2007.
The 42-year-old Simpson says she eats about 12-thousand calories per day and has a grocery budget of about $750-dollars per week.
