Kimkins cover girl: “I was wrong…Kimkins is not the way to lose weight”

It takes a very special person to publicly admit when they were wrong about something even after multiple warnings and concerns shared by those around them. And yet that is exactly what has happened this week when Kimkins Woman’s World cover girl Christin delivered an impassioned video apology at her blog along with a detailed explanation of the health complications she and others have suffered since beginning the risky low-carb imposter diet scheme devised by a morbidly obese woman named Heidi Diaz.

I blogged about my concerns over the Kimkins fiasco that culminated earlier this week when this beautiful young woman had to be rushed to the emergency room because of some pain in her chest and heart complications. When you hear something like this happening that was brought on by such an extreme low-fat/low-calorie diet like Kimkins, it should make you angry. AND I AM ANGRY ABOUT IT!

To anyone who is still on the Kimkins diet, CHRISTIN has a message just for YOU (link to video)

Show your support for and encouragement to Christin by leaving a comment about this video at her “The Journey On” blog. What a brave woman she is and I am honored to know her as a friend. She has demonstrated nothing but grace, elegance, and dignity in the midst of what has become a complete and utter nightmare for so many of us in the low-carb community concerning this Kimkins debacle.

For the sake of those who cannot view the video, the following is a summary of the video, including direct quotes made by Christin regarding her experience following the Kimkins diet. Be prepared to be shocked and stunned as she shares quite openly about the negative impact this weight loss fraud has had and may continue to have on her health. Pray for her even now as she seeks to reverse the damage that has been done.

Christin said she did this video so that others would “know exactly where I stand on this.” She explained why most people choose to lose weight: to improve their health. Period! When you are 100+ pounds overweight, then you are not living healthy, she noted.

She chose the Kimkins program because she “wanted to lose weight quickly and I thought healthfully” because she “wanted more for my life.” She wanted to “be there” for her family in the years to come. I think all of us who have ever gone on a weight loss plan can relate to that.

When she first began, the program was working great for her because “I was following the program exactly as written. I thought I was doing perfectly.” But after losing 100 pounds in five months, Christin then conspicuously noticed there was not one single doctor who approved the Kimkins diet. That’s when she started looking into who Heidi Diaz, aka Kimmer, really was and what she claimed to be.

Diaz had alleged in the marketing of Kimkins that she lost 198 pounds in 11 months on this Kimkins diet and was promoting it that way to anyone who would listen with supposed pictures to prove it. But it was this recent series of articles that included recent photographs of Diaz along with several other sites that made Christin become concerned and realize that those claims by Diaz were simply “not true.”

“Heidi did not lose the weight, she did not follow this program that she claims is safe for anybody, even for diabetics,” Christin said.

Then Christin turned in her video to the “risks” of being on the Kimkins diet that she discovered first-hand while following the program. She said she has real “concerns for everyone else that has attempted this program or will attempt this program.”

That includes first and foremost hair loss. Christin admitted that her hair “started fall out in handfuls” and it “scared” her. She estimates she has lost as much as 60 percent of what used to be “thick, full hair” prior to her Kimkins experience.

“Now it’s very thin,” she exclaimed.

Another side effect was the loss of her menstrual cycle that she believes happened from “eating so few calories and my body was becoming malnourished.” She said the hair loss and lack of periods are both tell-tale signs of anorexia, an eating disorder where victims literally starve themselves to be thin.

“I believe now the Kimkins diet program promotes a form of anorexia that I don’t know if science has even attempted touch on this yet,” Christin stated. “300 calories a day is not safe weight loss.”

Any dietary change this drastic need to be closely monitored by a doctor just like those who undergo gastric bypass surgery do, she added.

When these symptoms began to show up, Christin went on the Kimkins forums to see if anyone else was losing their hair and female cycle like she was. “What’s going on?” she pleaded to anyone who would listen to her concerns. And Christin said she “saw it come up multiple times” regarding these symptoms she was having in other people, too.

The excuse provided in response to this happening was that it was “perfectly normal and you’re going through a shed. Your body is just losing estrogen.” It was just too coincidental that “almost every other person who kept their calories under 1000 calories, probably more under 700 calories, has lost hair.”

“I don’t want to scare you,” Christin said speaking directly to people who are still following Kimkins, “but I want to bring you into the reality that there is a better way to lose weight.”

Christin asks “are you really doing this?” and urges people to take their diet plan to their doctor for him to examine it. “Take him your Fitday, take him exactly what you are eating, let him see your calorie counts,” she said.

“I’m concerned about you,” Christin pleaded.

Christin says she is sorry for supporting the “dangerous” Kimkins diet

When the time came for Christin to step into the spotlight back in June when the Woman’s World magazine cover story opportunity came up, she said she was “put on a pedestal as the ‘cover girl.’ I was the model, I was the way to do it.” But now she realizes how she was used as a pawn and seeks the mercy of those who trusted and looked up to her.

“I need to ask your forgiveness,” she said. “I’m sorry. I was wrong. Kimkins is not the way to lose weight. Kimkins is dangerous…for your health, it’s dangerous for your psyche.”

But as much as Kimkins hurt Christin up until this point, none of it was as grave as what was happening to her without even realizing it. She had the symptoms of an eating disorder that she admits made her realize she “had a problem” when she was fearful of even consuming some salad out of fear that she’d stall in her weight loss.

“I did not get fat on salad and on healthy vegetables,” Christin explained. “I got fat on sugar and white carbs.”

Getting over the fear of eating was a very difficult mental test for Christin as she now obsessed over every little bite of food she was eating and how it would impact her on the scale. She revealed that she hasn’t met anyone who has been on the Kimkins program who wasn’t “literally scared” to add food back into their diet.

“What kind of a program is it that makes you scared? Weight loss is not about fear, weight loss is about excitement, it’s about joy, it’s about recapturing your life,” Christin shared with a glimmer in her eyes. “It should be a fun journey, not a fearful one.”

And yet fear was exactly what gripped Christin and it would not let go of her.

“If I wasn’t losing everyday, then I began wondering what was wrong with me,” Christin admitted. “Nothing was wrong with me. My body was screaming at me. It was putting the brakes on and telling me you’re going about this the wrong way.”

As a devout Christian, she knew that “God created us to eat healthy foods; vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and yes, even fat.” Christin reiterated that she believes there is “validity to low-carb programs” like Atkins, Protein Power, and the like when they are done the correct way and not the Kimkins way.

“You will provide your body with all of the nutrients that it needs” when you follow low-carb by the book, Christin shared. “God did not create you to starve yourself.”

Outlining the “many dangers within the Kimkins program,” she said that it goes much deeper than just an eating disorder. She said that “something is going on within my body” and that it has been manifested in the form of “flutters” in her heart for the past month.

“Twinges, cramps, aches, all within my chest cavity right around the area of my heart,” Christin expressed, sharing that it all came to a head on Monday when the “severe chest pains…stomach aches, and nausea” were so great she was admitted to the emergency room staying there until late at night.

The doctors examined her with many tests, including an EKG, blood work, chest x-rays, and they kept her at the hospital for several hours to monitor her condition. It’s still unknown what caused the tremendous pain to come on Christin like it did on Monday night, but she was prescribed pain medications and was referred to a cardiologist for an immediate follow-up visit.

That visit to the cardiologist took place on Wednesday who shared several concerns for Christin. With a “more and more serious” look on his face after hearing Christin’s story about her starvation-mode weight loss method compliments of the Kimkins diet, he told her flat out that “our bodies can suffer damage from eating that little.”

After conducting more tests on her, including an EKG, an ECG, blood work, and “lots of listening with the stethoscope,” the cardiologist said he was not concerned about what he called a “normal” low pulse rate of 45 (incidentally, mine is in the upper 40’s since I lost nearly 200 pounds and Christin has experienced a heart rate in the low-to-mid 40’s). Even still, she says she “might get a second opinion on” just to be sure about it.

But there were real concerns that the cardiologist had for Christin, including “possible damage to my heart nodes and valves from malnutrition.” Because of that, he wants to have a sonogram of Christin’s heart to confirm whether or not there is this damage since it was inconclusive from the initial examination. He’s also concerned about some “esophageal spasms” that happen whenever there is a “rapid change in your dietary program and you lose a lot of weight.”

“Things can change on your insides,” Christin quoted the cardiologist as saying, “that it takes it a while to catch up.”

She is now medication for this “distress” with the contractions surrounding her esophagus and trying to rest as her body goes through the healing process.

Speaking passionately and directly to those who still think the Kimkins diet is a safe and effective way to lose weight in a healthy manner, Christin had an extremely clear and articulate message for them.

“If I and my story can stop anyone else from having pain and having the fear that I did that I might have caused even further damage and by attempting to be for my family I hindered my longevity with them–I was scared to death. That ride to the hospital was one of the most fearful ones that I have ever had! My husband was scared at having to face the possibility of losing his wife and his helper and his love,” she recalled from her haunting experience earlier this week.

When they got to the hospital, Christin said she and her husband “prayed together” while holding hands hoping for the best in God’s hands. And that’s something she wants to help others avoid if they will simply listen to what she has to say.

“If I can save any of you from having to go through that, then it is worth it,” Christin concluded.

Speaking about her role as the Public Relations head of Kimkins last month and as the cover girl on the Woman’s World magazine in June, Christin said she did it because she “thought [she] was helping” others as is her heart’s desire.

“It has always been my desire to help people,” she said. “And especially those that I feel a connection with, those who have struggled to lose weight their entire lives, those who have issues with obesity–something that I know all too well.”

Christin said taking on those responsibilities felt like she was “doing my part to give hope, to give assurance, to sympathize and to empathize” with people who were facing the same struggles that she had trying to lose weight. She still has those feelings for people who want to beat their obesity which is why she is still blogging and participating in a low-carb forum again.

“My heart goes out to you because I know what it’s like,” Christin stated. “I know the euphoria of losing weight quickly, but I also know the risks and the dangers involved and I am begging with you now to please listen to your body like I’ve said so many times and do the right thing.”

She added: “There is a right way and a wrong way to lose weight. And I am now convinced that starving yourself and utilizing the Kimkins program in that manner is not the right way.”

Realizing there is still a need for a community for people who desire weight loss the healthy way, Christin said we should all “stand together and learn together” the “correct way to use a low-carb program to make each other healthy, to live a longer life for our loved ones and our families.”

Christin said she’ll be back to blogging again soon and appreciates the friendship and love that has been shown to her through this horrific experience.

“I love you and I’m here for you,” she concluded.

Visit Christin and learn more about her continuing low-carb weight loss journey at her “The Journey On” blog as well as the “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Discussion” forum. And if you would like to contact Woman’s World magazine to let them know about your concerns regarding the Kimkins program, their direct e-mail address is Perhaps if enough of us let them know about Christin and others who have suffered serious health consequences from being on Kimkins, then they may print a retraction.

SingingLass Kissing Ass Again!

26 09 2007

Yes, there is still more to report today. Hard to believe, isn’t it?

Over at theTRUTH, we learn of more admin private messages that discuss the bannings, paypal refund requests and more.

Hi, looks like scoble banned her ownself in her departure….her public reason for leaving was a bit snarky, so I changed it to ” Voluntary” to simplify it….thought I would let you know on the chance you would like it to read tos violation instead.

I keep checking in, things have been pretty quiet on the boards the last 24 hours it seems….but that could be a good thing too.

Oh, you most likely already know, but just in case you do not …heads up. Ducky is sending people instructions now on attacking through Paypal.

You are really on your toes! Paypal automatically denies any claim more than 12 weeks old. We saw 12 auto-declines and couldnt’ figure out why. Now I know!

Hopefully things will quiet down at least for the members. Some get really upset by the hoopla.
Thanks for being here!

It clear the person scrambling around online isn’t Kimmer (Heidi Diaz), it’s SingingLass.

We know Kimmer lacks any moral compass from all we’ve read, seen and heard.


We wonder, how morally bankrupt one must be to not only be one of Kimmer’s minions, up day and night running around online trying to find something to report back with, but never question what you’re out here reading day in day out?

And, by the way, how can SingingLass not understand her weight loss isn’t going anywhere lately because she’s sitting on her ass all day long doing nothing but kissing Kimmer’s ass?

Christin: Kimkins was “wrong way” to lose weight

25 09 2007

In a no holds barred reversal of her previous interview at Weight Loss Tips, Christin has clearly articulated her misgivings about the Kimkins diet and warns others not to follow the very low calorie regiment if they value their long-term health.

Weight loss is about health, not speed. If I had it to do over again, I know now that while quick weight loss is desirable and attractive, it is not necessarily the best for my body.”

Slamboard Shares Comments Received

19 09 2007

Martin, the author of the Slamboard series on Kimkins, posted comments here and since everyone reading doesn’t read the comments, we’re posting them for all to read!

We’ve only edited for readability.

I am writing to give you first-hand info regarding Kimmers aka Heidi Kimberly Miller Diaz.

Yes, those photos are of her in front of her apartment.

Yes, she is bald and doesn’t wear her wig at home.

No, the photo of the woman in the red dress is not Heidi.

Heidi is a 49-year-old mentally ill woman.

She has served jail time for her cons in the past.

This is just her latest (and most successful con) in a long string of evil behavior.

She has used Brandon since he came to live with her last year.

He was living with his father and step-mother because Heidi was deemed unfit to care for him.

His father moved to Washington to get away from Heidi and her constant harrassment of his family.

Brandon chose to stay with his mother in California. He is an innocent victim of this latest con.

Heidi long ago ruined her credit and since Brandon has just turned 18, she now has access to his.

Heidi has legally been on disability for mental illness since before Brandon was born.

She has conned the IRS, the Social Security Administration, the foster care people, her own brother and anyone who will give her money.

She has ripped off her ex-husband, impersonated his wife at their bank and many other scams.

She made up an internet story years ago about how someone stole her Avon products and money from orders. She made this up along with a sad tale of being a single disabled mother, blah, blah and got people to give her money all while her district manager was sitting in the hospital with her young son who died of cancer. There was no theft.

She has ripped off her older son, his girlfriend and anyone who crosses her path.

She has been diagnosed as a dangerous sociopath (a criminal with no conscience), behavior Kimkins members are seeing now. She is smart enough to run a good con but then gets over-confident and messes up.

Yes, the detective found incriminating evidence in her trash because she wasn’t smart enough to shred it.

The photos took 6 days to obtain because she never left her apartment. She was on the computer for hours on end.

When Brandon is home, she goes down in the apartment parking area and talks on her cell phone in her green van (yes, it’s hers).

You need to quit giving her money and sympathy. She is evil.

What kind of a mother chooses to cram her apartment full of foster boys in order to collect money for them but won’t raise her own son because he takes up space she needs for a paying customer?

What kind of mother sends her son to school with notes filled with lies about missing school because she has “cancer treatments” when she was just too drunk to get up and get going?

What kind of mother uses her son for her own monetary gain and risks his reputation and safety for her own greed?

I know many of you don’t want to believe this is true but believe it!

All of this Kimkins stuff just became known to me this evening.

The only surprise is that this time, she really made some big money.

Please call the Corona DA and stop her. She needs to go back to jail.

She has no employees, that’s why she’s on the computer all the time.

There is no overweight woman working for her and there is no one in a wheelchair. She works out of her two-story apartment, I would love to see a wheelchair go up those stairs!

She is misusing her niece’s name (Vanessa Romero) as a “false” employee.

She has no business giving diet advice. She has been obese for years and even had her stomach stapled years ago. She can’t manage her own weight, don’t let her tell you what to eat or belittle you.

She is taking you all for a ride, I’m sorry but it’s true.

Couple questions….
Who does Heidi talk to on the cell phone…

Did she even lose any of the weight by stomach stapling?

The whole thing makes me slightly nauseaus all the time… that we’re wasting all this time and energy due to this sicko’s scam …

The thought of people literally starving themselves because this obese crazy woman tells says it’s okay… AND PEOPLE ARE STILL BELIEVING HER!!!

Concerned, I’m sure she’s talking to tippy, telling her everything is fine, between bites of a big mac. And then keeps telling Tippy to drink the kool aid and not ask questions.

Tippys ass is going to go down just as badly has Heidi. I forsee a pity me post coming from tippy any second now. And I for one will hand her, her ass for it 😉

September 19, 2007 at 3:26 pm


Who is the author of this post, did I miss it?


Martin said he believes the comments are from Hector Diaz, Heidi’s ex-husband. We feel, after reading the comments posted, that they may be from his wife, Christine. Either way, they appear to be from within the Diaz family.

September 19, 2007 at 3:31 pm


That makes sense. I cant believe this whole situation. I …… am truly speechless. The people left are so gullible.

September 19, 2007 at 3:39 pm


This is crazy. It’s like something out of a movie! I always liked the name Heidi (sounds so sweet and innocent) before this. I think I’ll call her Hidey instead…

September 19, 2007 at 4:01 pm


some are still saying TT is a victim. I am beginning to think she has some mental disorder too. Why would you run from a site that she had been so involved in and lose so many good friends.
I think people are seeing the true colors that I have always seen. But for the life of me I cannot understand why she would defend someone like that . She could of continued her woe and supported people on the kimmer thread on lcf and stayed with her friends at kimkins too without getting involved in the whole mess.

I will only be a matter of time before Tippy comes crawling back to the board…’forgive me i didn’t know’ yada yada yada…..I hope no one believes her or give her another chance! At this point in my mind, her and heidi are one in the same!

September 19, 2007 at 4:11 pm


I really hope Heidi fries. Ok, so she won’t “fry,” but I hope she goes away for a LONG TIME!!

–”I forsee a pity me post coming from tippy any second now. “–
Yep I’m totally waiting for that….if she has an atom of brain matter left. However, she’s had her chance. I sure hope people don’t let her off the hook so easy. I have no pity for her. She loves the attention.

September 19, 2007 at 4:53 pm


I agree kan…..She puffed her chest up too high this time……..She feels on top of the world now . Its all about ” Me Me ” mentality.

September 19, 2007 at 4:59 pm


Sociopath. Yep. I can believe it.

Should we be worried for Jeanessa and Missi and Martin, because sociopaths will kill, won’t they? Without remorse.

Okay, someone please arrest this demon spawn!!!!

And I hope the father is able to convince the son to get the heck away from Heidi. I’ll be praying for Brandon. Poor kid got a toxic, parasite mom. And though he’s legal age, I sympathize.

I won’t sympathize with Tippy, though. Sorry. Not unless she personally goes to Corona, knocks on Heidi’s door, and takes a picture herself. Then apologizes for covering up for a wicked woman, helping in any way she can to get the demonspawn in jail. Period. That’s it. Tippy needs to atone for facilitating a sociopath when the evidence was all out there, for even the mentally challenged to “get”.

Getting to Know SingingLass

19 09 2007

SingingLass is yet another staunchly loyal admin at Kimkins. Since it’s apparent she has no plans to leave the sinking ship today, we thought we’d add her profile at this time.

SingingLass’ name is Delaney. She’s frequented many message boards prior to joining Kimkins. In fact, she was a prolific poster at Low Carb Friends until a few months ago. Her last post in that forum was June 26, 2007.

Yesterday she scurried around the internet editing content of posts made back in 2002 when she started posting online and happened to reveal a tragedy in her teen years. We are not making light of this incident, but are including it only to show that she is well aware of what she is currently doing inside Kimkins and that her past posts remain fair game in all this.

The cache of her original posts remains. It may help explain her pathology in all of this with Kimkins. We’ve included it for accuracy, not entertainment and are truly sorry she had to experience such a violation in her youth.

While she’s singing the praises of Kimkins these days, she has had health complications while on the diet.

Well, despite how little I have been eating….not only did I not lose anything the last four days, but it shows me as being a pound up. ::sniffle::

I have been really sluggish today…got up for a couple hours then fell back asleep at noon for almost another four, and STILL feel tired. My legs are also very sore, at first I was what the….then remembered I spent several hours sitting in a folded kneel position yesterday while putting together the photo board. Headachey too. I guess just everything that has been going on and rushing around, lack of sleep ect……would have felt better if I had seen some weight loss though.

In a hair forum online she was scolded by the moderators for her unbelievable advice about hair loss.

But, what we find rather amusing is that in her profile she includes among her occupation(s) ‘Psychic Consultant’, which may explain her rather bizarre rants in private messages and private admin forum posts with Kimmer.

There you have it, some history on the one and only SingingLass who is quick to ban and remains at Kimkins. As we have for the other admins, we’re issuing a reminder that remaining on staff with Kimmer (Heidi Diaz) may be considered aiding and abetting.

Perhaps you should leave now SingingLass?


For those wondering, yes, we are working on profiles for each of the remaining admins.

Unless of course they jump outta there before we get to post the profile!


EDITED to remove textual context of sites SingingLass is deleting content from. If one wants to read the cache it is here, but it a tragedy for any teen girl.

I’m not discounting anything she’s gone through in her past – it sounds horrible. But it seems obvious by her own words that she wants/needs to feel needed and Heidi is undoubtedly giving her what she needs in that category. We all know Heidi could care less about her and is just using her…hopefully she’ll see this and realize that it’s time to leave.

September 19, 2007 at 8:20 pm


1. Posting someone’s tragedy like that, let alone something that occurred to a child… as a form of entertainment is down right low, wrong, if not sick. That has nothing to do with any of this or kimkins. Shame on anyone associated with someone who would stoop to such measures.

2.The post taken out of context about not eating much…was because my grandmother had just passed away and I was GRIEVING, and staying with family where low carb choices were limited. The photo board mentioned was constructed for my grandmother’s memorial.

3. That hair board thing was actually some post someone else made copying what was put up here at kimkins exposed, which was a twisted version of my original post on kimkins that was taken out of context .

While you are at it, how about drag around through the mud that I have two degrees after putting myself through college, and am a formally trained opera singer. I am sure people will find lots of fault there. 🙂

To anyone who uses my childhood experiences as entertainment, humor, or message board fodder…please think of your own daughters, sisters…mothers, your own experiences, and how you would feel for them to be put on display in such a callous manner. Regardless of what is going on with kimkins, I would hope and think that others out there would agree that is no where appropriate and request it be removed and kept out of this.


Delaney, you should be fully aware we did not include the cached copy of your words for entertainment. The Kimkins situation is not entertainment, it is fraud and you are aiding and abetting a criminal in her enterprise. That’s a felony. Think about it.

We are sorry for what happened to you as a teen.

September 19, 2007 at 8:36 pm


Additionally….I just wanted to add, that the post being displayed detailing childhood experiences and PTSD was over five years ago during a difficult time. For anyone concerned, I have long since dealt with those issues, and am at present very content with myself and my life….in fact, I am very proud of the things I have accomplished for myself against those kind of odds. I still however think, using that kind of information in this context is wrong and is a violation of anyone who has had experiences of that nature.


Are you proud of your work at Kimkins?

Are you proud of how you’re treating members who paid good money to be there?

Are you proud you’re aiding and abetting a criminal?

Are you proud you too may be indicted for your role in this situation?

September 19, 2007 at 8:39 pm

too bad kimmer

SingingLass when you join with fraud and help to commit a felony, EVERYTHING about you gets known to the world. That is how things work. If you don’t think that the prosecutor is going to pull this stuff up and use it on you, then you are terribly naive. Please leave the fraud behind so you don’t go to jail too. Make no mistake about it what Heidi has done is a felony.

Uh, SingingLass – first of all, I don’t know if anybody was laughing and secondly, YOU posted it on a public chat room on the internet…any expectation of privacy there was gone long ago.

AND you should be ashamed of yourself, regardless of your past, in backing and continuing to assist a crook like Heidi in what she is doing. Did the “yelling” at a 14 year old girl who obviously had an ED bring out the same response in you? No, you kept defending Heidi, the site and that WOE.

So while you rant about how what was posted has nothing to do with Kimkins, half of what you posted has nothing to do with it either. Your education and training have nothing to do with posting what you do on that site.

I personally was on a post with you when you gave out advice to someone asking about an ulcer and told them to eat the yogurt to coat their stomach. Your degrees aren’t in medicine because any dr. would cringe at that advice.

You need to wake up and realize what’s going on and quit defending a crook…you will go down with her for doing her dirty work and the judge won’t care about your past…just about what you’ve done to further Heidi and her scams. You are her puppet and it’s so sad that you don’t even realize it. Take 2 minutes and step back from the situation, you’ll see it for yourself.

Delaney – I am sorry for your past abuse and I certainly do agree that your childhood traumas should not have been dragged out into a larger arena than you were comfortable in sharing it originally. You should not be re-victimized, and i am upset about that. Shame, Ducky!!!

But, I have to tell you, in all honesty and compassion, that Heidi/Kimmer is playing you, and using you, and making you her victim in this scenario. Believe me, I know those games all too well. She is bringing you close so she can use and then discard you. She is an abuser. You are being re-victimized.

PLEASE, Delaney – you know I have gone to bat for you, and supported you in the past. I am not against you. i am BEGGING you to step back, take another look, and step away. PLEASE do not go down this road another step. It will not end well!

Ask yourself – Why did we all leave, Delaney? We had NOTHING to gain, and plenty to lose, in walking away from our friends, our support, and, for some of us, our income, too. What did we see that you haven’t seen yet?

I’d say give it time, and you’ll see it, too. But, Delaney, you may not have that time. PLEASE listen to that part of you that wonders what you have gotten yourself into, and whispers that something is not right.

You don’t need her. And, in fact, she does not need you. By the time you are out the door, she will have replaced you without another thought. You are merely an interchangeable object, her means to an end.

You are smart, and you’ve already survived a lot. You are better than this. You don’t need this. Walk away.

September 19, 2007 at 8:49 pm


Wow, your tune sure changes when YOU are the one on the defensive. I have seen your posts where you are very nasty to people asking for help.
If you post something on the INTERNET of all places, people read it, it is public domain. It sounds to me that you and Heidi seem to be the ones that are ‘entertained’ talking about members in PMs or on the admin board, and speaking derogatorily about them as well. Not much fun when the shoe is on the other foot is it?

September 19, 2007 at 8:50 pm


I did not find this anything like “entertainment”. On the contrary it let’s people see why you are doing what you are doing. I have something like you experienced in my past and I know firsthand how it can affect our thinking, our perception of ourselves and the need we have to feel of value. Which is the ONLY reason I can see the need you seem to have at defending what is going on over their. Your prose make you appear to be an intelligent woman, but yet you are still there defending, aiding and abetting an obvious fraud. And what is worse, you don’t seem to mind it at all. And that is also what is so sad. And shame on you for sticking up for her and helping her with her agenda. In the end, she will take you down with her and she won’t even think twice. What a tragedy that is to add to your life as well.

September 19, 2007 at 8:51 pm


SingingLass….Delaney…..I truly am sorry you had that happen to you as a teenager. It does leave me wondering though….the word Ducky used….your pathology now……could it be that you now feel a lot of control by being a kk admin? could it be that you’re somehow using it to feel better about yourself?

Please Delaney, leave Kimkins before you wind up arrested with Heidi!

September 19, 2007 at 8:54 pm


I too think it goes too far to widen the audience of your past trauma. I feel sorry for you in that regard, but I am glad you have dealt with those issues.

Please listen to Becky. I have more of your PMs, but I won’t need to post them tomorrow if you can see the light. I’m not trying to blackmail you, here. I just don’t want to do it if I don’t have to.

Becky, once again, well said. You truly are a caring and compassionate person. You understand how to get your point across with out insulting, which shows intelligence and maturity.

Concerned about kimkins, you should take a lesson. “tard?” Are you 12? A statement like that only shows ignorance. Of course, we can’t all come across as eloquently as Becky.

September 19, 2007 at 8:59 pm


I can’t speak for others, but I don’t see how anyone here sees SingingLass’s tragedy as entertainment. What it does do is provide some background as to why she seemingly enjoys the power of being an admin, someone who has control over others and can do to them what she wants.

I think it’s really hard for her to step back and see that she’s not very nice in the Kimkins forums and that she’s treating many, many people badly.

And we all know if you don’t want something public, don’t post it on the internet in a name you’ll be recognized under. Better yet, don’t post it online at all!

SingingLass, as others have begged you, it’s time for you to really look at all of this and realize we are not “haters,” nor are we “jealous,” nor are we trying to foil yours or anyone else’s weight loss. No, we’re trying to bring a criminal to justice and you happen to be in the way!

Sorry curious, I should have said? Moron? Harlow, if serious, just stated that Heidi is going to do a web cam show and really show us all that she’s for real. If you believe that you are mentally bereft. Sorry. I will concede that tard was a bit childish. I will go for dense next time if that suits you.

September 19, 2007 at 9:17 pm

I really doubt that anyone is “laughing” at what happened to you or is being “entertained” by it. Paranoid much?

Touting your successes to me is useless. I don’t care what you’ve done in the past. I care about what you are doing now.

Naw…I’d go with Tard for both Harlow and Curious at this point!

September 19, 2007 at 9:32 pm


I, too, can vouch that reading about SingingLass’s past pains made me SYMPATHIZE, not laugh. That, however, doesn’t excuse her facilitating a sociopathic scammer.

I hope, I really hope, SinglingLass leaves Kimkins and moves to another forum with low-carbers who are doing it sanely, safely, well, and without the controlling con-artist behavior of Heidi Diaz.

I can’t believe ANYONE thought that was posted to ridicule. Maybe it wasn’t the best call Ducky made, but I don’t think it was malicious.

I do think Heidi is malicious, and SingingLass’ aiding and abetting makes her part of the “bad guys”. Stop it, SL. Just quit.

The tragedies of the past never excuse the trespasses of the now.

Delaney. So many people love you and care about you at LCF and other places. You are important beyond labels and administrative buttons.

Those whispers in your ear are being made with poison lips.

Please come home.

La Mesa…do you realize how ignorant you sound?

Do you know anyone, personally, who is mentally retarded? Throwing around the term “tard” is rude and offensive. I work with mentally retarded (mild, moderate, & severe) people every day. A mentally retarded person is not at fault for how they were born. Using the term “tard” is as bad as saying “that’s gay.” Or, do you have a problem with homosexuals as well? Who’s next? Blacks? People of Polish decent? Jewish people?

Why is it some people can’t get their point across without being rude?

Delaney, Becky speaks very wise words. She is not capable of friendship. She is using you, like she used the rest of us. PLEASE read and re-read, and then read again what Becky posted above.

September 19, 2007 at 9:50 pm

Nobody’s laughing, its tragic – but hey, you lie down with dogs, etc. etc. Seeiing how nasty StingingLass has been to the poor victims at Kimkins, I have ZERO sympathy for her. I say, everything is fair game. She sure was laughing behind the scenes with that evil criminal Heidi while they made fun of the members and planned to hurt them. But oh, you don’t like it when its YOU on the hot seat!

I say SINK HER right along with Kimmer!! Birds of a feather should drown together!

I’ll save my compassion for those innocent folks being scammed by Heidi and Stinginglass and TipsyToes!

September 19, 2007 at 9:52 pm


SingingLass- I am so sorry for all the bad in your life and I am happy to hear that over the past 5 years you have been able to overcome it. i’m sorry, but I do agree with Ducky on the point of being an admin makes you feel needed. I don’t agree that your story should have been posted here, but YOU did post it for the whole world to see. I was still on the Kimkins boards when you first became an admin and you do take your “position” way to far and serious. I do hope for all the wrong you are doing that you are atleast getting paid. (Not saying getting paid makes it right). I too hung on after all the contraversy (sp) first strted hoping Kimmer would prove all the anti-kimkinners wrong, but she didn’t and want. She doesn’t even try to defend herself.

You where so quick to jump in about how wrong it is to post your life, so plese jump in here and tell us what you think is Kimmers side. Did she lose weight? Does she have foster kids? Is she a fraud? Are you going down with her? Why isn’t she defending herself when she knows there are lawsuites agianst her? And please be as bold as you are on the kimkins site when you are banning people for having questions.

September 19, 2007 at 9:53 pm

It’s funny to me how you can talk about being a child of God in your confession, but you join in with treating people like crap and scamming them along with a con artist. How do you think God feels about THAT, StingingLass?

Keeping Secrets

Delaney, you know what it feels like to fight hard to tell the truth about something that is happening only to be silenced, right?

Please look hard at your actions. You are inadvertently helping an abuser silence her victims and witnesses about her abuse of their trust. When you grow up in a dysfunctional family it feels natural and safe to keep secrets, but you aren’t helping to make a safe place. You’re helping the abuser continue to betray and exploit more people.

Does SingingLass have Ducky on speed dial or what? How long was the post up before she added her first comment? It couldn’t have been long, the first comment was only seven minutes before she posted something!

And SingingLass, no what happened to you is not at all funny or entertaining, but it does shed some light on your actions and reactions in the Kimkins site.

Do you even regret how you treated that 14-yo now?


From the point we released the post live until SingingLass commented was 19 minutes. Interesting observation Janice! Definitely speaks volumes about how often they’re visiting here.

September 19, 2007 at 11:05 pm


I am going to sound like a total bitch, but I don’t care.

I was molested by my real father from about 3-9. I was raped at 16. Yeah it sucked, and I do not wish it on anyone.

I think for SL to try and hide behind those things is the biggest but of bullshit I have ever heard.

She sickens me. Many, many people have gone through traumatic things and are not power-hungry jerks with their heads up their ass.

I hope she rots in hell right next to Kimmer and Tippy Toes.

September 19, 2007 at 11:28 pm


It is horrible what happened to you and I don’t think anyone is making light of it. . . but what you’re doing over there is horrible, too. Unfortunately, lots of individuals who have been abused turn into abusers themselves. You are VERY harsh sometimes when posting to people there. . . you are scaring people over there, censoring them, and making them feel shunned & alone. . . you didn’t like it, why would you want to do it to anyone else?

Please listen when Becky tells you that Heidi is NOT your friend; she does not care for you, she only cares for herself. Kimkinssmith and others here DO care about you. . .listen to them and break the cycle and finally break free.

September 19, 2007 at 11:29 pm


I’m so glad I never trusted in Kimmer that much.

When I first joined in June (and not from WW…I didn’t even know about it!), I was so stoked to realize that she really did PM people. I had just had a ‘trigger’ in my own life which brought on much of the same pain SingingLass spoke about. For me, I felt if I lost the weight, all those parts of me would fade. They never bothered me growing up.

I nearly PMed and told Kimmer all about it in hopes I’d get affirmation, something…I’m so glad I didn’t.

I’m well now, but still…wow. Thank the heavens.

This whole thing confirms that my radar isn’t totally broken. While I fell for Kimmer’s lies and need to destroy others, I always felt that SingingLass wanted to be an admin over at KK’s to be loved and accepted. Call it women’s intution! Hey, we ALL want to be accepted, so no shame in that, SL! But, you need to protect yourself and go ahead and admit that you fell for K’s lies like a lot of good folks did. You are getting used. Be strong! Don’t let someone like her take advantage of you – GET OUT NOW.

God bless, SL. You’ve had it rough. Sorry!

September 20, 2007 at 12:04 am


It is a tragedy what happened to you Singing Lass but nobody is seeing it as entertainment. Let go of the victim mentality and stand up to Kimmer. Don’t play a big part in turning members into victims. You know what its like to be a victim. You have a choice to do right by people.

SingingLass, no one is laughing at your past. What you endured is horrible and criminal, and no one should have to suffer through those things.

BUT, lot’s of people were abused and mistreated as a child. I was, too… please don’t use that as an excuse to mistreat others! Go the other way– use that heightened sensitivity to care for others, to help them. And no, verbally abusing Kimkins visitors and fronting a fraud DOES not count as help.

I understand that it’s tempting to want to grab power wherever you can. You had no control as a child and now you do… it’s a strong urge, but fight it! You don’t want to be an abuser. You’re a surviver… and you’re better than that.

i dont care about being banned so much because i will get my money back and we will see to it that kimmer goes to prison over this scam…
i do care that lies were told about me and my particpation on the forums, and the lies were told by you….

are you a big enough woman (no pun intended) to apologize to me for those libelous lies?

or are you cut from the same cloth as the almighty kimmer, in which case you have no perception of reality whatsoever, and relish your cyber-”importance”

you still have time to retreat and get out from under kimmers spell…

show us that you have the morals and dignity to do so….
