"Well, I beg to differ. The photograph of Sue Walter and the post was copied from a post which appeared in a PUBLIC Internet forum called "Low Carb Friends." The post may be found here:

Well, the admins at LCF have been trigger-happy today with the old delete button, haven't they? Too bad they weren't quicker on the draw because one awesome blogger managed to save thetruthinhiding's post and photograph of Sue Walter, who just so happens to be our favourite spewer of pro-Kimkins rhetoric on the blogs.

Here's thetruthinhiding's post again for those who missed seeing Sue Walter's photograph before LCF deleted it:

"simpleannie and Costa are both:

Sue Walter, a 46 year old mother of 3 from St. Marys, OH
'swalt' to her friends on KK for the last 10 months

Tell her what she has won folks…"

Well, swalt has been making the rounds of the anti-KK blogs for quite awhile. Take a gander at the comment she left (posting as "anonymous") on my blog post dated January 20, 2008:

"Anonymous said...

This is so sad, so many people who have dedicated their lives to this. There are so many more jobs out there that would help people out more, maybe a shelter or pantry. Put this energy into helping others with physical labor instead of just typing..

Makeing little comments directed at Kimmer, or the Kimkins way of old are you. Grow up and do something useful. These people will take care of themselves, the starving people on the street can't, please help them. Be a big brother, or big sister or something.

This is really getting old.

FYI I am an adult female, 46yr, I lost 62 lbs in less than 4 months, did not take laxatives, minor hair loss, no heart palpitations, and a clean bill of health for my family Dr. I have maintained my wt loss since the first of October and no signs of anorexia, I weigh 150lbs, and am very happy at this wt. I am an adult, therefor I made this decision on my own and it was the best decision I have made in a very long time..Thank you Kimkins.

"Anonymous...I'll tell you what's "sad"...Kimkinites following Kimmer's advice (when she doesn't follow it herself) who end up starving themselves and ruining their health. That's what's sad.

And who are you to say we don't help others out in shelters, etc?

Yeah, I agree with is getting old...because of people like you who continue to support Heidi Diaz and her starvation diet plan. You and other Kimkinites can personally hold yourselves responsible for the perpetuation of this diet.

And if you think you've gotten off scot-free healthwise by following Kimkins, give yourself a few months and then come back to me and tell me how you're managing with your thyroid whacked, your hair falling out in clumps, chest pains, etc. I'd love to hear from you then.

Now, do something useful yourself and go stick your head back in the sand. I've had it with you and your like who are so blind that you can't see that the woman whose diet you're following is an admitted liar, thief, scam artist, and fraud who never lost a pound following her own Kimkins starvation diet, who is still morbidly obese, and used fake Russian Bride "before and after" pictures to depict herself.

With people like you visiting her website and buying into her weight-loss plan, she made $1.4 million through fraud and deception. If that is the kind of person you wish to be associated with, then good on ya', honey.

Now buzz off. I have work to do bringing that scammer and her diet down."

"Medusa---very well said!!

As for anonymous, let me explain to you about caring for your fellow man. I happen to do alot of volunteer work for the homeless, animal shelter, domestic violence, and a host of others.

What the same hill do you do?

I join Medusa in saying I am sick to death of all the Kimkinites spouting about how the diet is fine and they lost weight. Whoopee dee do dah----starvation diets have long term consequences. Watch and see. You have forever changed your body. FOREVER. Not just a few months but the rest of your now shortened life.

An obese person can die from malnutrition quicker than a thinner person can.

Also see me in a year---the weight you lost will be right back plus some with it and you pay hell trying to diet ever again.

"Hey Anonymous,

So, I guess if it's worked for you and you "have seen" no adverse conditions, then it MUST be a "healthy diet"? Huh? What about ALL THOSE THAT ARE SUFFERING? What about all those that have ruined their health by following this unhealthy diet? What about those that ARE STARVING and dealing with VERY DANGEROUS eating disorders because of following the Kimkins diet plan to the tee?

You have no compassion or empathy for them?

You think because they are adults then it's OK to ruin their health.

I'll tell you what's SAD. Sad, is when a 46 year old adult can't see past their own stupidity to "see" the big picture. You could starve yourself all by yourself, without paying $80 to a scam artist. Anyone can loose weight by NOT EATING! But to sit there and say that just because you've seen no adverse effects in yourself - means that it must be healthy, is just plain stupidity. You can't possibly speak for all who've joined that site and followed that diet. You can't possibly "know" what others have had to deal with when it comes to their own health. Who are you to speak for them. Who are you to preach to the anti kimkins folks about what they should or should not be doing? What are you doing to help others? What are you doing to help your fellow kimkinites from falling into the dreaded eating disordered black hole?

Are you telling others on the kimkins forums to NOT use laxatives daily? Are you telling them that if they are losing handfuls of hair that they should eat more? Are you telling them if they are having heart palpitations that they should stop following the diet and see their doctor. Are you telling them that FOOD is not the ENEMY?
I've read the posts over there and NO WHERE do I see ANYONE preaching those things to those that are struggling.

If anyone should be ashamed of themselves, it should be YOU!
For continuing the perpetuation of a FRAUD! Your "seal of approval" could actually kill someone. Have you ever thought about that?

I agree with Medusa, Go Stick Your Head Back In The Sand!!! Because it's people like you who are helping to hurt so many. Once you come out of the "protective confines" of the Kimkins forums and start defending that crazy diet, you open yourself up to all that you get.

Oh, and congratulations on your weight loss. I do honestly hope that you "tweaked" the diet to be more healthy and that you do not have to come back here, down the road, and admit that you have ruined your health (like others have).

Now, the story doesn't end there. MJR (Kimkinscam) followed up with a blog post to swalt, which is a thing of beauty. The link to MJR's post is on my post here:

Before posting my "Hey Anonymous" post, I received confirmation that swalt was, in fact, anonymous. Take a moment to read the comment section of this blog post where I dropped a few hints as to who anonymous was.

And to read the most recent pro-KK comments by Sue Walter, posting as Costa, check out BamaGal's post here:

BamaGal said...

Well now she is telling me to remove her pic and name now....

wonder if you have such a comment waiting....

Medusa said...

Nothing yet, Bama.

Anonymous said...

Brava to all of you who are speaking up and speaking out against Heidi's flying monkeys. The truth will lock them away.

MrsMenopausal said...

I don't know why but I still get amazed and caught off guard by all the socks.
It must stink to be found out when you were having so much fun being mean incognito.

Hey Medusa,
Yea, what's up with LCF?? Are they getting a little too paranoid these days? Wonder why? I know they've always been a little trigger happy - but, it would seem that they may be catching some heat (from Heidi's attorney?) At least, that's the only reason I can come up with.

Hey Tom, remember the old saying.... "never let them see you sweat" Kimmer is a scam artist! And so are those that follow her around spreading her nonsense! Stay strong, and remember that there are two sides to this mess. The RIGHT side and the WRONG. I wouldn't think it wise to blurry that line.

Medusa said...

Word, MJR!

I've heard it through the grapevine (channeling Marvin Gaye here) that MANY LCFers are having their posts edited and deleted entirely. A lot of posts aren't making it to the FWK thread at all, and infraction PMs and e-mails are being sent to posters.

This CYA censorship has now gotten completely out of control. Someone's gotten up the mods' craws, and it ain't pretty.

A very well-known and popular poster on LCF has had her knuckles repeatedly rapped in recent days, with her posts being edited or deleted. And utterly ridiculous infraction notices are filling her mailbox.

Something's rotten in Denmark (no disrespect to that beautiful country intended :^)

Anonymous said...

Yep, I heard about that too! Very unfair, IMO.
That's why I don't post at LCF anymore. Only read!
I had a few posts deleted a few months back, but, was never told why. I don't like being treated like a child - so I'll stick to my blog and the others who want the truth to be told.

theTRUTH said...

I fall into the category of having my posts edited and deleted. You were not referring to me were you? I'm making my stand in there right now.

Medusa said...

Although I know your posts have undergone the cutting knife, truth, I wasn't referring to you. I suspected that some of yours had also been deleted entirely.

No, I was referring to another former prolific and popular poster who has virtually been rendered mute as a result of the LCF mods.

The FWK thread has become a black hole.

theTRUTH said...

Yeah, I knew it couldn't be me: you said "well known and popular". ;)

Medusa said...

LMAO, truth!

Well, the glove fits you too ;^)

PS. Loved your post on FWK. Honestly, I'm shocked it passed muster. I took a screen shot just in case a little chopping & hacking happens. Just for posterity's sake, yanno?

theTRUTH said...

The post flys in the face of Cheri's edict. They just haven't seen it yet. Give it time.

Medusa said...

I'll be watching, truth.

I'm feelin' another blog post comin' on ;^)

theTRUTH said...

I meant to complement you Medusa on figuring out swalt long before I did. I wasn't even aware of these older posts. I know how I figured it out, but how did you? Email me if you want to say.

Medusa said...

Thanks, truth!

If you send your e-mail address to me at, I'll give you the scoop in the morning, after I've downed 2 cups of coffee :^)

Medusa said...

Darn, I hit "publish" instead of "preview."

truth, I was going to add to my last comment to you that I had help and can only take a small part of the credit ;^)

Prudentia said...

Not only was Sue's photo posted on LCF, but it was also posted on the front and very public page of Kimkins, which is also public.
