Being active came easily as a child for Falmouth, Michigan native Kim Nielsen; she played basketball and softball, and in high school, she was the MVP and an all-state athlete for both sports. Her success as an athlete inspired her to become a professional wrestler. She first signed with WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment), where she wrestled under the name "Desire." She later worked with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) and also worked as a model for Natural Muscle magazine. But after breaking her back in a wrestling match six years ago, her career ended. She became pregnant with her third child, stopped exercising and started overeating. Now a single mother of three at age 38, Kim weighs 252 pounds and says she is tired of hiding from fans, friends and family because of the way she looks. She wants to be around as long as possible for her children and have the energy to keep up with them. Kim looks forward to losing the weight so she can wear a bikini when she takes her kids to the beach, go horseback riding and enjoy all that life has to offer instead of letting her weight hold her back.
