Donna, then 37 stone, came across a website which celebrated obese women.
When she admitted her real size, Donna was flooded with emails from men.
'They sent me gifts through the post, like protein shakes to help me put on weight faster,' she said.
And she unrepentant of her weight-gain goal, despite risking her own life in the process.
'I love eating and people love watching me eat,' she said.
You might expect her long-term partner Philippe, 49, to advise her to slim down, but instead he encourages her to eat more.
He met Donna on a dating site for plus-size people and is a self-confessed fat admirer, although he himself only weighs 150lbs.
She needed a team of 30 medics to deliver her daughter Jacqueline during a high-risk Caesarean birth.
oh now COME ON. REALLY???? she kind of has a pretty face though...
