Mom ~ Amy Kay Krieter

This is me today in 2018

Greetings, I am Amy Krieter, 39 years old, mother, author, and founder of BackToTheEarth. I am the one who has chosen to share our stories, so I will be the main family member you hear from, tho we all have notable changes worth documenting. 

I have gone from weighing almost 300 lbs down to 152! Literally cut myself in half! I feel 10 years younger, stopped taking my blood pressure medication, and feel comfortable in my own skin again! I am able to hike without the help of a cane or walking stick, and can do so much more with my kids again, who love the outdoors. Having so much weight on my bones was so much more uncomfortable than I even knew until it was gone. And now I don't know how I was able to do it.

Here I am in 2015

Fibromyalgia is a very real thing, but I think the answer is so much more simple than we are allowing it to be. If you look back through history, the symptoms didn't start until our bodies were getting a healthy intake of preservatives, and other chemicals in our diet. We actually are what we eat, and if we are fed all these chemicals that don't belong in the human body, there are going to be problems! This is why I am so adamant on my children being fed an organic, whole food diet. If you don't know how to pronounce the word, chances are your body won't be able to identify it either. So if your body can't identify it as a fuel or a waste product, it will store it away in your fat cells until it can figure out what to do with it. Once I learned that, and knew all the awful stuff I had been feeding myself, I didn't want to be "junk". And I most certainly did not want to build my children's bodies up out of junk either. My youngest daughter, Reana, just had to have her gallbladder removed, and I know it was the diet that I was feeding her that led up to it. Now at only 15 years of age she is having to figure out healthy alternatives to certain fats that her body can no longer process the same. It has helped us all in the pursuit for a healthier lifestyle.
I am now learning something new everyday, and now we are going to share our knowledge with you! You can message me personally with any questions you have at! Or find me on Facebook!
