In the end, Kim not only changed her health and size, but also her career.

Review quote

"Special thanks need to go to Kim. She has been a coach, a teacher, a counselor, and a friend to thousands of people. She has been the turning point for so many who, because of her and their own hard work have improved, lengthened, and in some cases saved their
own lives."
~ Jason Coles, age 35, lost 106 pounds
"The actual benefit of being guided by Kim is to be uplifted by her genuine kindness. She is an incredibly warm and giving woman. Her comments, instruction, tips, and sharing of her own struggles lets us know that we will get there. She celebrates every success with us and infuses strength to deal with detours in our plan. She reminds us to keep faith."
