HI! My name is Kirsten. I have been alternating between dieting and binge eating for most of my life, so I am truly an expert in dieting and failing.

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 intermittent dieting to healthy living, permanently.

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day, saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
