Happy New Year.! Your picture looks amazing…you are doing an amazing job!

I have just received permission to start my blog. I deleted the PM that told me which site you wanted me to use, would you please send that over.

Also, a question about the diet. I’ve been VERY VERY good on this diet, last time I was here I’d lost the majority of my 30lbs by now…my weight is coming off at a snails pace. What should I do different? I am going back to exercising twice this week and I am going to keep my menus the same, I went out a purchased quite a bit of ground turkey breast for my little burgers…the scale is not moving…the tape measure is doing great, I can say I am down a complete size which I wonderful, but I really need to see that number on the scale get smaller.

Thanks Kimmer.

Much love,
XXXX

Holy cow, I had no idea. How do you sleep at night, this can’t be good for your health. There are ways to getting people to join, I think a well publicized blog will help. Once the public understands that all the negative stuff out there was a few people blowing smoke they will come. Have you had new members since all of this started? Holy cow Kimmer. Are you able to keep your head above water with all of this financially? I know it is really none of my business, and I’m sorry for asking, but for 18 years I was a fundraiser for a major University here on the East coast…I’m sure if we brainstorm there will be ways to raise monies…I know you are not asking but I don’t want to see this site go away, nor do I wish to see you go away.

I understand your reluctance to trust…I can’t even imagine what this has done to you. But you really do have to. It will take time but no one can/should shoulder all of this alone. You have several people here who adore you, several that I think would stab you in the back if they got a chance, you have to let your instincts guide you (along with a good lawyer).

Kimmer, I know you don’t know me, but I requested to be a part of this community for a reason. I loved it here when I was here last and I will defend you and this woe to my last breath. I am not asking you to trust me at all, but I do want you to know I’m here for you, if you just need a sounding board, don’t hesitate to use me. Know that you are loved very much by so many of us.

God bless you Kimmer, hang in there.

My former partner, Catherine, actually included the original member list in court papers! That’s totally confidential. Many people don’t want anyone to know they joined a diet website and many email addresses are “names”. I truly can’t believe she would do that!

>>What people don’t understand about $$$ is that we charge a one time fee. If we never get another new member, I still have to pay the hosting ($1000/MO), tech support ($4000/MO), etc. For years to come. 50% of our purchase price goes to taxes. 25% for affiliates sales and that’s off the top. We actually lose money on affiliate sales. I’m sure Weight Watchers & other online diets are laughing their #$%@ off that we’re dumb enough to pay for resources for years for 1 person for $30.

Kimmer, they are suing for the same reason they joined and were advisors…get rich quick. Unfortunately, there will always be those who set aside their integrity for the all mighty dollar. I would, however, like to expose them for who they are, and help assure America that people are not dropping dead here…we are not winding up in the hospital and we are improving our health.

You will always have to put up with ex-employees that want revenge…just be very careful about those people you allow to get that close. From what I’ve read online, you’ve learned the hard way. I takes something from you when you are taken advantaged of that way I’m sure.

I do not even begin to understand what this past year has been for you, but I will do with I can to help make the upcoming year a little more pleasant.

I had a wonderful Christmas, thank you. I equally hope you and your family found piece.

>>I would love if you and others open Kimkins blogs! If you want to go whole hog, you can sign up as an affiliate and put a banner. If anyone clicks on it and joins, then you earn $14.99. We’ve got a few affiliates that earn enough for their car payment this way.

>>To be honest, I have my own feelings about what’s going on with Kimkins and former members, but the attorneys want me to be quiet so I’m keeping my feelings to myself for now. Funny how some people can lose weight and promote Kimkins as a great diet … Until they get terminated. And they gave out the same advice I did. Hone$tly, I ju$t don’t have a $ingle idea a$ to why they are $uing Kimkin$..

>>Anywho, get blogging! What a fun outlet for you, too! Hope you had a wonderful day with family and friends.

Kimmer – 1st Merry Christmas, much love to you and your family.

Is it ok for me to write a blog about Kimkins? Would you want what I am going to write submitted to you prior. I’ve done quite a bit of research in the past week, there are plenty of negative blogs out there about our woe but I’ve not come over anything positive. I’m sure I will be slammed but I am more than ready to defend this woe, my decision to follow it and your involvement.

I find it very interesting that many people are calling you are liar, they don’t seem to understand that as a foster parent you had a duty to keep your identity private, that it does not matter how long the children have been out of your home, the need to keep their placement and situation private is important for their entire lives. They don’t seem to be giving you any slack at all concerning poor PR…ok, you made a few mistakes with the site…nothing at all for all of this negativity…anybody without marketing experience could have made the same mistakes.

I bet if one or two of us started blogs more and more would go up. So many rely on the Internet to be informed, if all the general public reads is negative feedback how is it possible for them to understand what we are doing here is saving lives and adding years to members lives.

I’m also quite offended by those who have lost all their weight here and are not bashing the plan. These are the same people who told me what I was doing at the time was right and that I should stick with it, I think I had very low calories…why are they now being held on this platform as wonderful people when they are guilty of exactly what they are pointing the finger at you for? I realize you do not know me and maybe I am taking far too much liberty, but I think it unfair and unbalanced.
