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!

Oh boy! I'm a yo yo-er from teens too! I'm 59 now and determined to get back to goal and stay there. Another spark member turned me on to fatloser.com where I found a free, 21 day program of MENTAL TOUGHNESS. I'm not sure if it would have helped me had I found this 20 years ago or not. You know the saying "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear." Well, I was ready and the teacher appeared. the person who recommended him to me said I would either love him or hate him...she was right. I LOVE HIM and he has given me mental toughness toward food as well as freedom and calmness.

Yes this journey has a lot of turns, bumps in the road and a zig and zag here and there, but we will still move forward and walk this path to health together! Thanks for being a panther!

"If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus; and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them." ~ Bruce Lee

And as all Panthers Know!

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