  1. Mariasol,

I have added these dates to the time line. Thanks so much for your input. It’s very interesting to me to see the back and forth – cause & effect ??- going on between the two sites. It really makes you wonder how much Heidi has to do with MCD. Mjr

    Unbelievably good job. What an effort! This is invaluable for everyone. Thank you!

    Here are a couple of suggested modifications. They seem significant to me, but if you don’t think so, never mind:

    1/23/08 – Bonnie offers Amyb a FREE membership to MCD and tells her to be sure to post pictures.

    2/10/07 – Bonnie tells Amyb through e-mails that she now wants pictures–“Only when you start this plan not someone elses that would not be honest.” Bonnie also knows (though Amyb never told her) that Amyb lost her weight on Kimkins.

  6. Anonymous Says:

    My bad. That should be 2/10/08, not 2/10/07 where Bonnie tells Amyb NOT to post pictures.

  7. kimkinscam Says:

    Anonymous,
    Ha! I missed it too. Thanks for clearing that up. Funny how I put it in the right spot – just missed the 07 part.

    Thanks again – I fixed it.

  11. Great job MJR

    to answer yustyucky’s commnet about Tippy. Tippy NEVER had a MCD account free nor paid. she had somebody in the inside of MCD telling her about the place and access to their log in much as many banned camp folk have friends with still active accounts inside the kimpire they allow the banned camp folk to use to “see” inside the kimpire.

  12. yustyucky Says:

    {{MJ}} Just checkin’ in to see if there’s any new MCD news.

  13. kimkinscam Says:

    Hi Yucky,
    NO, Nothing new on the MCD front. Except that NOTHING is going on at their site. I’ve been away for a while and have decided to get back in the swing of blogging again. Getting back to basics and continuing the fight against Heidi Diaz and her dangerous diet advice. Thanks for checking in on me. I’ve missed everyone and am looking forward to jumping back in.
