People Who WANT To Be Morbidly Obese? -

I just watched Dr.Phil today, and they had a woman (Suzanne Eman) on who said she was 700lbs (although Dr.Phil weighed her in at the mid-500s, which caused her to have a mini panic-attack) and wanted to break the record of World's Heaviest Woman at 1600lbs. O_O
At first, she (and her loved ones) went on and on about how "it doesn't matter, as long as she's healthy", but after hearing that a doctor told her the exact OPPOSITE (saying, "she's playing Russian roulette with her life") and that she ate between 20,000 and 30,000 calories worth of food (most of which unhealthy things, like 4 corndogs, 10 tacos, 3 ham&cheese sandwhiches, 2 bacon cheeseburgers, an entire bag of chips, 6 candy bars, etc... in a single day), they changed their minds.
In the end, Dr. Phil offered her help at a weight loss center, her family begged her to take it, and she did. Thank God.
But this isn't just one person. I remember not long ago there was another woman claiming to want to be the world's heaviest. I looked it up, and Donna Simpson is her name and she currently has the record for being the heaviest woman to give birth and 500-something pounds. She also claimed that she was healthy and loved her body. Upon looking her back up, I found out that she too is going on a diet after breaking up with her chubby-chasing fiance.
Have you ever heard of this? o_O It's obviously not healthy. Right now I feel like I want to lose 10-15lbs to my goal weight of 120, but I'm only 135lbs. I can't imagine being over 500! For them to say, "Oh, it's okay, I'm healthy" but then talk about being unable to walk long distances, or having difficulty going down stairs, getting in and out of bed, or even being unable to stand in one place while cooking? Healthy people don't have those problems.
