HI! My name is Kirsten. I have been dieting and binge eating since I was a teen. I am truly an expert on the subject. My weight as an adult has never been stable.

Now, I am 52 years old, obese, and I have depression, disordered eating, and high blood pressure. Diabetes runs in my family. It's time to get off the diet roller coaster. I am changing my lifestyle from dieting to healthy living, permanently. I am worth it!

All year long we focus on Healthy eating and moving the body to become fit. We do this for a chance to live life to the fullest. This fullness is to be shared at the dinner table at the holidays, not by what you put in your belly, it is to be measured from the joy you receive from being grateful for one more year with your loved ones. We do not get a guarantee to have another year with everyone you see, so make the most of the moment, and leave the worries for another day. Happy Holidays to you my Friend!

emoticon Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it.

The time will pass anyway; emoticon we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. emoticon
