Feel guilty about how much you ate over the holidays? Donna Simpson doesn’t. And trust us — she put you to shame.

Simpson, a New Jersey woman, scarfed down a 30,000 calorie Christmas dinner, one that consisted of (among other things) two hams, two turkeys, a 10-pound roast and five loaves of bread. Merry Christmas, indeed!

What compelled this mother-of-two to gobble down in such copious quantities? Why, only the nobelest of goals – to become the fattest woman on the planet. Simpson says she won’t stop eating until she hits her thousand-pound target weight. (She’s currently at 600 lbs.) Not only that, she’s turned obesity into a career. The U.K.’s Sunday Mirror reports Simpson supports herself through public appearances and a website where people can watch her eat. (No, NewsFeed refuses to link to that.)

“People who feel guilty about eating are hilarious,” Simpson told the paper. Simpson already owns the world’s record for the largest mother to ever give birth. (via CBS News)
