Casey Anthony fattening up as she prepares to leave country

Anthony is currently at an undisclosed location in Florida.

“Tot mom” Casey Anthony has reportedly been spotted venturing out in public, picking up food from restaurants and renting movies — all while going virtually unnoticed. What’s her secret? It’s all thanks to a new disguise: extra pounds.

Radar Online is reporting that America’s most hated mom, who was acquitted of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee’s murder, has gained so much weight that her puffy face is unrecognizable in the Florida community where she is under probation.

The past six months have been busy for Anthony, between getting baptized and packing on the pounds.

“She hasn’t needed to wear a disguise because of the physical transformation. Casey is finding comfort in food and she is clearly eating a lot. She typically goes out at night to rent DVDs and pick up food to go from restaurants. She is very careful to not linger anywhere when she does and tries not to make eye contact with anyone,” a source told Radar Online. “Casey doesn’t feel safe anywhere and just wants to leave the country and begin a new life.”

But she’s going to have to wait before she gets her international start. Her probation for writing bad checks is set to end in a few months, but she is facing a lawsuit from Zanaida Gonzalez, who was dragged through the mud after Anthony told investigators that a woman by that name took her daughter, Caylee. Anthony will have to attend the trial, which is set to begin in January 2013.

Anthony was last seen online in January when a video diary she recorded was posted on the web. In it, Anthony talked about getting a new camera and phone and her hope for a new pet, but never mentioned her daughter.
