But rather than trying lose weight, the 27-year-old wants to continue to pile on the pounds – to the point where she is completely immobile.
Monica, who models on Super Sized Big Beautiful Woman websites, is aiming to become the fattest woman in the world at over 70 stone (1000lbs) – and wants to be so huge that she is literally bed-bound.
Her feeder boyfriend, Sid Riley, 25, spends his days cooking for Monica, rolling her over when her 91-inch stomach is full and funnel feeding her through a tube.
Monica said: “The plan is to reach 1000lbs and become immobile. I would feel like a queen because Sid would be waiting on me hand and foot and he’s excited about it too.
“It’s a sexual fantasy for us and we talk about it a lot. He already has to help me get off the sofa and get me out of bed.
“If I lay down after a big dinner he has to help me roll over because my belly is too full for me to roll - it’s a big turn-on for both of us.
And despite their controversial plans, the couple is currently trying for a baby – which Monica intends to raise from her fat-bed.
She said: “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.
“There’s nothing to stop us raising a child. Some people might think it’s selfish but I’m confident we would be good parents.”
Monica had been overweight all of her life and just two years ago she was preparing for bariatric surgery.
But at the last minute she pulled out of the op and decided to instead embrace her figure.
And since meeting average-built Sidney online four months ago, size 38 Monica has gained almost four stone by gorging on 8,000 calories every day.
Monica said: “The bigger I get the sexier I feel. I love my big soft belly and stuffing myself with food really turns me on.
“Sid loves to cook for me and hand-feed me and I’ve achieved so much since we got together. He feeds me around the clock and I never have to get up to do anything.”
On an average day, Monica will eat six biscuits, six sausages in a bread roll, a big bowl of sugary cereal, two weight gain shakes, four McChicken sandwiches, four double cheeseburgers, large French fries, 30 chicken nuggets, macaroni cheese, Taco Bell and a gallon of ice cream.
Monica, from Fort Worth, Texas, hopes to get to a size where she will be unable to do anything for herself – requiring Sid to clean her, feed her and change her – by the time she is 32.
The couple have run into criticism for their intentions, especially from Monica’s mum Terri, but they won’t be deterred in their efforts.
Monica said: “My mum 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.
“I do worry a little bit about losing my independence but I know Sid loves taking care of me and would never let me suffer.”
Sid, who is 6ft 2 and 220lbs, is also defensive against any criticism and insists he is simply helping Monica achieve her dreams.
Sid said: “There is a misconception that feederism and immobility is about control but that’s not the case.
“If Monica wanted to stop I would accept her decision without question.
“I wouldn’t see caring for Monica as a chore at all.
“I love her and I love doing things for her – caring for her would be a dream come true.”
To assist Monica with her weight-gain, Sid prepares a special shake for her to drink through a funnel.
The shake consists of ten Pop Tarts, heavy-duty cream, ice cream, milk and weight-gain power, totalling 3,500 calories.
Monica said: “The funnel feeding is what I really look forward to. I find it to be a very sexual experience and I know Sid likes it too.
“I have 20,000 online fans and they love to watch the funnel feeding – it’s a big hit.”
And regardless of the health risks of being morbidly obese, Monica and Sid are charging full steam ahead with their mammoth quest.
Monica said: “I could get hit by a car tomorrow and my life would be over. At least if I die this way I will have lived out the life I wanted and fulfilled all of my dreams.”
