About Melissa

You don’t need to struggle with or obsess about your weight.

I know exactly how that feels. It does nothing but cause depression and anxiety and that slowly ruin your life.

9 months pregnant

Me, 9 months pregnant with my daughter and suffering with high blood pressure (pre-eclampsia) and gestational diabetes. I weight 245lbs in this photo. The heaviest I’ve ever been.

Hi, I’m Melissa Flagg, also known as Daughter of Maat. I’m a 38 year old wife and vegan mom with a weight problem who has spent 21  years in the medical field. I started this blog in an effort to keep myself accountable, but it has evolved into so much more than that.

This blog still keeps me accountable, but I also share all of the medical experience I have and the research I’ve done on diet and weight loss so that you don’t have to do it. You can find all of the latest research in one place here on the blog, and I do my best to try to explain it so that everyone can understand it.

I believe knowledge is power. The only way you can take control of your health is to have all the facts, and that is what this blog is here to do.

If you have questions about your health or weight loss, please feel free to ask them, either in the comments here on the blog, or if you prefer you can email me questions at kinectweightloss@outlook.com. I’m happy to help.

You can also connect with me on social media via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook  or friend me on My Fitness Pal or Fitbit. If you’re using the Xbox Kinect in your weight loss program, my gamertag is DaughterofMaat.

Wishing you all the best in health and happiness,
