World's Fattest Woman, Donna Simpson- is it really about JOY?!

Now this blog is entitled Lovin' Life, Losin' Weight. And it is for all of you out there who really want to know how to lose weight successfully and maintain a healthy and fit body for life! And if you have been following this blog for a while, you know that what I teach is all about having the right MindSet to attract your goals and desires. Your thoughts and feelings need to be aligned with wellness in order to attract great health and be successful in your weight loss journey.

So, you can imagine my reaction when I heard about the story of the 42 year old woman, Donna Simpson, who currently weighs 600 lbs and is shooting to hit 1000 lbs to be the World's largest woman. Well, that's quite a twist ... a woman in her 40's who wants to gain weight and be extremely overweight (and "extremely" is putting it mildly)! WOW!

My first reaction was probably similar to many of you-- WHY? Are you kidding me? And then my next thought was "isn't this going to be detrimental to her health"?!

As a Law of Attraction Coach I am quite curious as to whether this goal of hers is something that she feels will bring her "pure joy" or if it is about something else. Some say, it's about the fame and the money. Well, I don't know her personally, but it really makes you wonder why people do what they do.

And what about the people who are sending her food and money to continue her quest to be the World's heaviest woman? What's their deal? These same people are actually watching her eat on the internet. I personally don't get it (but I don't have to!). It amazes me how some people will spend money on something like this, but when it comes to investing in their own joy and improving the quality of their life, they may hesitate to invest or simply don't. But hey, that's their life and it has nothing to do with me.

Here's what I believe ... however, please do keep in mind that this is only based on my opinion and has no bearing on what this woman will manifest in her life (unless she believes the same thing deep down). I have a belief that her excessive eating of 12,000 calories per day is detrimental to her overall health. Am I her doctor? No. Do I know what her current state of health is? No. These are just based on my beliefs around health and well-being.

Now, that being said, the bottom line is this. She is the only one who is in charge of her life. She will create her own personal life experiences by the nature of the thoughts and feelings she chooses to have. So, whatever I think has no impact on what will come next for her. And after all, we are all responsible for our own lives. Each one of us must take 100% responsibility for what we attract into our lives. Because we are the creators of our life experiences, whether we believe we are or not. Yes, many blame others for what happens in their lives, but the results we get are only because of what we choose to think, feel and believe.

So, here are a few questions I would ask Donna Simpson if I was interviewing her or if I was her Life Coach:

* Are you feeling "pure joy" when you are doing this?
* Is this coming from a Happy place? Are you Lovin' Life right now?
* What type of thoughts and feelings do you have during the course of a day?
* How do you physically feel right now?
* What's the REAL reason that is motivating you to achieve this goal?
* When you achieve this goal, how will you feel, what will you be doing as a result of this "accomplishment"?
* What's next?

These are just a sample of the questions that I would be asking her if I was interviewing her as a Law of Attraction Health Coach.

Who am I to say whether she is happy or not. I don't know her. Yes, I have my beliefs around this whole topic -- but what I think and feel does NOT impact her life. She is the only one that can impact her life.

It fascinates me that while Michelle Obama is going out campaigning to stop childhood obesity, Donna Simpson is on a quest to take it to the other extreme and weigh 1000 lbs. Only in America could there exist this dichotomy of messages.
And by the way, Mrs. Obama ... it is important to teach kids about that mind of theirs and how powerful it is to create ANYTHING they want in their life ... including being healthy & fit. It's not just about the foods they eat or the exercise they do! If they are "unhappy kids" this will negatively impact their overall health too. If you need a side-kick for your campaign, just give me a call -- I would love to help you inspire and motivate our youth! :)

So, moral of this blog post is ... only pay attention to what brings YOU joy. Focus on your life and align your thoughts and feelings with being happy and Lovin' Life. You are the only one that has control over your life experiences. And whatever you think of what others are doing can not impact their outcomes, it will only impact your outcomes especially if it gets you in a tizzy.

As I have said before ... "Being Happy makes you Healthy!" (not the other way around)

Here's what I know: I am passionate about helping YOU be Happy & Lovin' Life, no matter what! When you are in this space and place, you will attract ANYTHING that you want into your life.

And if you are one of the many that actually want to lose weight successfully and maintain a healthy and fit body for life, here's what I teach my weight loss coaching clients:

Great health and wellness starts with the right mindset!

My 6-week Law of Attraction Weight Loss Audio Program helps my clients do just that. You can't be frustrated with where you are at and attract that healthy and fit body. You have to learn how to be happy first, appreciate more, love yourself for who you are right now. When you start aligning with feeling more joy on a regular basis, THEN you will be inspired to take those action steps that will naturally bring you that healthy and fit body you so desire. Lasting results come from inspired action steps, not ones that you feel you should do or have to do!

Once you get the mindset right, there is no turning back -- it's a done deal.

Anything is possible.

I should have know you would have commented about this and I am glad you did. My mom mentioned it and then I saw a mention of it on The View. I personally have tried not to see too much of it and I just feel sorry for her. There is no love, nor money that makes sense to destroy oneself like that. I heard she has a daughter too? I can only hope she does not damage her daughter as a's really sad...she needs YOU!

Yes, Michelle. You know that I couldn't help myself. I agree that no amount of money or fame is worth someone's health and well-being. It's not about a trade-off. All of us want one thing ... to be happy, don't we? Even if people think that money or fame will make them happy ... it won't. Just look at all the celebrities or corporate executives that have boat loads of money, but are they really happy?

It's about choosing happiness right here, right now. That's when all our dreams and desires will manifest.

And I agree with you, I don't watch news reports that don't make me feel good. If paying attention to a story like this makes anyone feel "bad" or "sad" or "mad", then they should stop watching it.

Donna Simpson is the only one that can change her life (if she wants to). She is 100% responsible for her life experiences.

Thanks for your post, Michelle.
