In her post today on LCF, baller4life4sure, expresses her utter dismay at discovering the truth about Heidi Diaz (Kimmer):
"Good evening all. You all may not know or remember me, but I was a part of this board back in 2004. I didn't post very much at all. I usually would just lurk and read very informative information about the low carb way of life. I have struggled with weight all of my adult life and stubbled upon this site by accident. I immediately became motivated and inspired after reading the many many post of the resident guru back in those days, KIMMER. I spent hours upon hours reading her many many posts and "words of wisdom" on how to lose weight fast and easy. I was astonished and inspired that a woman could finally beat the battle of the bulge and be so helpful to others at the same time. She so effortlessly seemed to be the "Queen of Weight Loss". I mean anybody that could lose such an enormous amount of weight in such a short period of time and keep it off for years, was going to be my own personal diet coach. I'm sure unbeknownst to her, I hung on EVERY word she said and did EVERYTHING she said. I remember the "Kimmer Experiment". Where you only eat meat and eggs for 3 days and lost a tremendous amount of weight. I lost weight for sure during those days. About 40 lbs. But, life issues started happening to me and I fell off the wagon. This week I decided that I was going to get myself back in shape and I came running back to LCF. The very FIRST thing I did was tried to look for the Meat & Egg Challenge Thread. So i typed in Kimmer in the search engine. Imagine my HORROR!!!!!!!!!!!..So, I spent ALL of Tuesday evening, into the wee hours of the morning, reading about the scandal involving Kimmer, Heidi Diaz,Liar!!!!..I can't remember a time when I was ever so shocked, appalled, betrayed..This woman, who I idolized for her wisdom and perserverance and determination turns out to be a complete fraud...Words can not even express how I felt reading it all and seeing the REAL pics of her with my own eyes. I can only imagine how those of you who followed her to the Kimkins website and paid money to be members must have felt. Or how those of you who so diligently followed every word she said and starved yourselves only to find out that she was some morbidly obese woman that ate whatever she felt like, must have felt. It reminds me of the Wizard in "The Wiz". Everyone pictured him to be this great person and he turned out to be a fraud!!...This has for certain taught me a very valuable lesson about life in general. Ladies(and gentlemen), we CANNOT look to another HUMAN BEING for our hope, motivation and inspiration because HUMAN BEINGS can and WILL let you down every time. We have to look within ourselves to become motivated and inspired to want to be the very best person we can be. Sure it is great to seek and get advice and to have a great board like LCF to interact with others and get support from one another. But, I will never again put all my hope and trust in one HUMAN to guide and direct me on what to do with my life and my health. Heartbroken can't even describe the way that I feel right now. I hope and pray that Heidi Diaz gets what is coming to her. And that she never again gets the opportunity to hurt innocent people!!!.......Thank you all for allowing me to vent. I wish you much success and happy low-carbing in 2008"
All the very best to you in your weight-loss journey. And thank you so much for sharing your story.
