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!

emoticon Fall, like spring is a time to clean and renew ourselves so we may weather the winter and be refreshed as a new season starts.

Today is a new day! emoticon

Under the big top we will be learning to become a sharp shooter! When we aim for something and keep trying, it becomes easier for us to hit our targets. emoticon

My challenge for you is to check out the Bow and arrow exercise in the daily panther challenge, to help with reversing upper arm sag. emoticon

Best of Luck to you Panther Pal! emoticon
