Honesty is the best policy!

Honesty 

Truth exists; only falsehood has to be invented. ~ George Braque

The truth is more important than the facts. ~ Frank L. Wright
In the mountains of truth, you never climb in vain. ~ Nietzsche
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom. ~ Jefferson
One falsehood spoils a thousand truths. ~ Ashanti proverb
 
If you tell the truth, you have infinite power supporting you.

8 great reasons to tell the truth

1. Telling the truth lets everyone know what really happened. There’s less chances of misunderstandings, confusion, or conflict.
2. Telling the truth protects innocent people from being blamed or punished.
3. Telling the truth allows everyone to learn from what happened.
4. You usually get into less trouble for telling the truth than for lying (and getting caught).
5. Other people trust you more when you tell the truth.
6. You don’t have to tell more lies to keep your story straight.
7. You gain a reputation for being truthful – a trait that most people value.
8. Telling the truth helps you feel secure and peaceful inside.
I hope someone takes this message to heart today.

Words of Encouragement from John Tiedt

On Friday, one very tired anti-kk blogger expressed their opinion that it was time for all of us to move on from the Kimkins cause; time to move on to other similar causes. 

However, the Kimkins saga is far from over.  As long as the Kimkins.con site remains up and active, as long as Heidi can charge people to join her site, and can continue to dispense her questionable medical and diet advice; and lie about her weight loss, or lack there of; there is still a need for us to continue our efforts.

The wheels of justice do seem to be moving slowly, and it would be nice to see results happening more quickly.  But since things are not moving so quickly at this point in time, we can take comfort in knowing the wheels of justice ARE moving and moving in the right direction.  Once the momentum gets going, it can only be a matter of time.  This has only been the preliminary phase, setting the stage for the final drama to unfold.  We have all done a lot of work to prepare for this and we should be proud of all we have done.

Once Kimkins.con is no more, and we don’t have to worry about any of the “weeds” luring people into her tangled web; once Kimkins.com displays the 404 error message and we don’t have to worry about the spamming of yahooanswers and craigslist and freecycle and other diet and non-diet message boards to entice people to ante up the $79.95 with her “too good to be true” claims, then maybe we can stop.  But even then, we must watch diligently and be alert to see that Ms. Diaz doesn’t start up another scam, similar to Kimkins or something altogether different.

If you are tired of Kimkins, then by all means, take a break.  We’ve been at this for quite a while now, so a break is certainly well deserved.  But please don’t expect all of us to give up the fight, and please don’t discourage those who are still willing to keep fighting.

Thank you, Mariasol, for you excellent blog post:  mariasol: Tired of Kimkins?

As long as Heidi is out there scamming innocent people whose only mistake was to want to believe in something that truly is too good to be true, then I’ll be here:  Searching for whatever it is that John Tiedt needs for us to find.  Exposing those weeds that need to be pulled.  Sharing the information that needs to be shared.  Ensuring that there is enough truthful infomation available so that others don’t make the mistake of falling for Heidi’s deceptive advertising.  Reminding folks to Say NO to Kimkins.  Encouraging the victims of the Kimkins Scam to join the lawsuit and to share their stories on the Kimkins Survivors blog.

Perhaps it is safe to presume that the lawsuit is paving the way for further litigation with regards to the dangerous Kimkins Diet Scam.  It’s not too far fetched to imagine that other entities are waiting for this to play out before they too move in similar directions.  So, even if there aren’t new developments on a daily basis, things are still moving forward. 

Even the attorney for the Class Action Lawsuit, John Tiedt popped into YustYucky’s blog last night to share these words of encouragement with all of us:

 THERE IS A GREAT DEAL TO BE REVEALED. THE FIGHT HAS JUST COMMENCED. WE NEED EVERYONE’S SUPPORT. I AM TAKING THE THIRD SESSION OF THE DEPOSITION OF HEIDI DIAZ ON THURSDAY. I JUST FINISHED THE DEPOSITION OF DENNIS SHARP. AFTER THIS WEEK, THERE WILL BE NEW DEVELOPMENTS TO REPORT. WE NEED EVERY ONE TO KEEP THE FAITH.

JOHN TIEDT

 

Thank you, John!

Count me in.  I’m here for the duration.

I’m looking forward to hearing how that deposition goes on Thursday, and anxiously awaiting your further reports.
