Monica, 29, weighs 700 pounds, dreams of not being able to move: “Gaining weight makes me happy”

Texan Monica Riley, 29, weighs 700 pounds (317 kg). However, she’s not happy with her weight – she wants to get even fatter. Her dream is to weigh half a ton – and to not be able to move without assistance.

Despite her doctor’s recommendations, she has made eating her life purpose – and she’s just getting started. The Texas woman even abstains from operations that would make it easier to lose weight.

“I feel like a queen,” she says.

The stubborn and dedicated 29-year-old has been overweight all her life. A few years ago, she was minutes from undergoing an extensive operation that would have made it easier for her to lose weight, but she pulled out the last second.

Instead, Monica Riley decided to try to get even fatter. When press spoke to her in 2017, she revealed that she was not content with her 700 pounds.

Boyfriend feeds her

Her goal was to gain weight until she hit mind-blowing 1000 lb – half a ton – and thereby become the world’s heaviest woman. She also dreams of becoming immobile.

Her boyfriend Sid is a so-called “feeder”, someone who lives to feed and fatten his partner. He feeds her through an enormous funnel on a daily basis.

“I feel like a queen. Sid feeds me around the clock and I never have to get up to do anything,” she told British Metro last year.

Monica ingests 8000 calories a day, which is more than triple the recommended intake for women.

“It makes me happy”

Many people – including the 29-year-old’s mother – are very critical of her life goal.

“My mom doesn’t understand it at all and she says I’m killing myself. I understand her concerns but it’s my life and gaining weight makes me happy,” Monica says.

“We do plan to have children – there’s nothing to stop me raising a child from my bedroom. We would get a nanny in to help around the house and take the baby out and about. Some people might think it’s selfish but I’m confident we would be good parents.”

She has often stated that she’s proud of her body, and that she likes when people write about her. Meanwhile, she dismisses her critics.

“My goal is to get too fat to be able to move,” Monica says.
