Hello. My name is Rob and I’m Kristin’s husband. Nice to meet all of you!
Kristin did not ask me to do this – this is something that I decided to do on my own because I’m so proud of her and how far she has come since her struggles with binge eating disorder. (She of course read this when she posted this to this blog.)
Almost everyday Kristin reads me emails that she received from people just like you. She reads me emails of people who just found her End Binge Eating Now website and for the first time ever, see a glimmer of hope. She reads me emails of people who read through her ebook and are now on a clear-cut path to overcoming binge eating disorder. And she reads me emails from people who now live a life completely binge-free, because of Kristin’s ebook, blog posts, and support.
And many times as she reads me these emails, she has tears coming down her face. More often times they are the tears of joy because she is helping others change their life for the better. Helping others escape the prison that binge eating traps you in. And helping others finally live the life they have always wanted to live – but didn’t know how to break free from the hold of an eating disorder.
I thought that it would be helpful to fill you in on what life was like before Kristin came to me a few years back, in tears, admitting to me that she had binge eating disorder. This secret, as many of you know, was something that she kept from me for a few years. And as you can imagine, there would be times when I wondered why things would go missing or be hidden in the pantry.
I didn’t think much of it at the time. It never occurred to me that Kristin was living a private life that completely consumed her. A private life that was so private that even the person she was living with, me, never really suspected anything. Sure, for a few moments I’d wonder where an entire bag of unopened Doritos went that was just there the day before. Or I’d wonder why the garbage would be empty and a new bag in place when I got up in the morning. I appreciated her taking the garbage out, but there would be times that I had remembered that there wasn’t much in there the night before.
There was always little hints or signs, but being someone that had never heard of binge eating disorder before, I didn’t suspect a thing and never once sat down and thought about everything. So the day that Kristin told me that she had binge eating disorder was the day that I found myself searching around on Google trying to figure what in the heck it was all about, I wondered if it was curable, and I wondered if she would have this forever.
I really knew nothing about it. So like Kristin and many of you reading this, I decided to research. And the more I researched, the more I began to see a potential way that one could truly overcome binge eating disorder forever.
My background is in business. All types of businesses. And many of them deal with very positive people – so I always had to keep my eye on the ball and head in the game when it came to personal development. I knew that past events could linger in ones life and cause all sorts of problems internally and externally if not properly dealt with. Some people turn to food. Some drugs. Some alcohol. Some sex. And some just bottle everything in and turn into a grumpy old man or woman no one wants to be around.
So I had a feeling that just like any other negative thing happening in ones life, that somehow the secret key to unlocking the cure for binge eating disorder would be in personal development, self-improvement, etc.
So I shared this information with Kristin and at the same time suggested she speak to someone to see if she can find the root on why she binged on food. As a little time went on, she took my one idea and totally ran with it.
I watched her plow through books, websites, and anything else that she could get her hands on. She began reading a lot of personal development books, journaling daily to squeeze out every last reason why she binged and what memories, happenings, non-happenings, resentment, discouragement, etc. that her mind may have tucked away years ago that was trigging these binges on a daily basis.
I cannot tell you what it’s like to be so in love with someone and watch them change into someone that you love even more. I watched Kristin go through massive struggles, set-backs, beating herself up, wanting to give up dozens and dozens of times, but she kept pushing forward. Overcoming binge eating is not easy – I’ve seen it first-hand. But if you follow everything that Kristin says to do in her ebook – it works. I’ve seen it work right in front of me and I’ve personally read countless emails Kristin has sent to me over the years from people that she’s helped end binge eating.
And over time, as Kristin began to regain her self-confidence, a beautiful, beautiful person began to emerge. A woman filled with confidence, love, and it was like watching someone be completely transformed by some strange outside force. The more she worked on herself, the more she began to release all of the subconscious triggers that would lead her to binge.
It didn’t happen overnight, but over time the urge to binge began to be replaced to workout, exercise, and eat healthy. Kristin’s weight that she had gained at the height of her binge eating disorder began to fall off and yet again, I was amazed that my beautiful Kristin was becoming more and more beautiful by the day. I mean come on, she was getting hotter and hotter! There was no way that I was going to let this incredible woman go, so I asked her to marry me and the rest, as they say, is history.
What some of you don’t know is that I’m Kristin’s #1 fan. I’ve helped her set up her websites, get everything in order, get this blog set up, and yes, I also read all of the comments. It’s amazing to see people like YOU begin to get your life back on track. I’m rooting for ALL of you!
As a side note, I do not see any of the emails that are sent to Kristin. They go 100% to her. I know she gets many emails a day… and every once in awhile she’ll share one with me that really touched her heart. And it always touches mine because I’m witnessing something truly amazing.
My hat goes off to Kristin for 1,000 reasons. For one, being so public about her battle with binge eating is to be commended. But her drive and passion to help YOU overcome binge eating is what I love her so much for. Her passion and dedication to help people see that there really is a way out of binge eating and a way to truly live the life you deserve is amazing to me.
There is NOT ONE doubt in my mind that Kristin is saving people’s lives. Years and years of binge eating is not healthy and no doubt drastically shortens lifespans. So by taking a tiny step forward right now is the best move anyone suffering from binge eating (or any eating disorder).
So I just wanted to publicly tell my beautiful wife Kristin that I 100% support you, I’m so proud of you for everything you’ve done and your drive and passion to help others end binge eating is amazing. You are an inspiration to me, our son, and the thousands of people who come to your website. I love you.

P.S… For any of you who find this website because you have a loved one who is struggling with binge eating disorder, the best thing in the world you can do is educate yourself and be there for them anytime that they need support. Remember, binge eating is a VERY private eating disorder, so it will take some time for them to build some trust in you. But keep at it and keep supporting those you love who are suffering because if they are willing to commit and work on it, they can overcome binge eating.
