I'M NOT ON A DIET!

HI! My name is Kirsten. I have been dieting and binge eating for most of my life. I am truly an expert in the ups and downs of the chronic dieter. My weight as an adult has never been stable.

Now, I am 52 years old, obese, and I have depression, disordered eating, high blood pressure, and social anxiety. Diabetes runs in my family. It is time to get off the diet roller coaster. I am working to change my lifestyle from dieting to healthy living, permanently.
