By Kirsten Duncan.

I’m 51 years old from Southern New Hampshire in the USA. Proud mom to 3 great young adult children. Married 25 years to one of the strongest men I know who has supported me through my IF journey while he himself was battling leukemia during the pandemic. We would lay in bed every night listening to The Fasting Highway & Intermittent Fasting Stories podcasts, unable to sleep from all the uncertainties going on in our lives. Those podcasts became a big source of strength & comfort during such a difficult time.

While not overweight as a child, for as long as I can remember I’ve never felt good enough or thin enough. That insecurity left me an easy target for a bully in middle & into high school. Coming home from school I would seek comfort in food & would eat until my mother came home. That led to weight gain & the beginning of my ride on the dieting rolling coaster.

Eventually needing 3 different blood pressure medications to control my hypertension. It was one of those meds that led me to being hospitalized & thinking I was having a heart attack at the age of 46. A doctor performing my stress test said, “you need to get this weight off, you have a lot of life left in you.” So I joined Weight Watchers again & was successful at losing 100lbs. At the same time my son was going through the stressful college baseball recruiting process. Sadly, things didn’t go as planned & seeing his D1 college baseball dream crumble was more than I could handle. I turned to food again & gained all but 10lbs of the 100lbs loss back. I was humiliated & defeated.

December 2019 motivated by a trip I managed to drop @ 20lbs before our lives were turned upside down. Torn between knowing I needed to grab my own health back from the brink but wanting the comfort of my “old friend” food, it was ultimately my son who said something that profoundly resonated with me. I knew at that moment I was done being obese. I joined Weight Watchers yet again but went searching for more. It was that search that ultimately led me to IF. I’m 110lbs lighter today than my highest known weight & never looking back.

Life is short, health is wealth and family is everything is my new mantra.
