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!
