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!

    Good morning, I saw your Spark Page listed.
    I have had trouble with my weight too.
    I was close to 200 in high school. wasn't happy with myself.
    And was constantly bulled. So I turned to food.
    Highest weight was 15 or 197.
    However mom introduced to Spark people.
    Been here since 2009 and lost about 8 pounds this year.
    Keep going sister I know that you can make it!
    I believe in you and I am here for you.
    If you need a friend feel free to add me!
    Your sister in Fitness, Holly emoticon

    All year long we focus on Healthy eating and moving the body to become fit. We do this for a chance to live life to the fullest. This fullness is to be shared at the dinner table at the holidays, not by what you put in your belly, it is to be measured from the joy you receive from being grateful for one more year with your loved ones. We do not get a guarantee to have another year with everyone you see, so make the most of the moment, and leave the worries for another day. Happy Holidays to you my Friend!
