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!

Muhammad Ali once said: “I don’t count my sit-ups; I only start counting when it starts hurting because they’re the only ones that count”. Do more and overcome your strength and abilities; give it all and you will be rewarded.

WE DESERVE THE BEST WE CAN DO FOR OURSELVES!!!!!!
Have a great day.

Hey sweetie,

Just take baby steps. You don't have to conquer everything all at once.

It helps me to just walk outside with my phone and earplugs with a lil pandora playing. I intend to walk 5 mins and end up going a whole lot more.

PLEASE feel free to spaakmail me any time you need encouragement or just to vent. I'm here for you.
