About

The Full Story

Welcome to Kates losing it !, My very own Weightloss Blog !... yes me !?... with a Blog... who would of thought that.
Here’s a little bit about myself ! 

I’m 44 years old and I’m 5ft 9” tall. 

My weight loss journey with Exante started in May 2019, where my starting weight was 22st 6.5lb.

At this present time I currently weigh 12st 5lbs as of 11/11/2020.

I achieved the milestone of losing 100lb in just over 7.5 months which is an achievement I am very pleased and proud of.

I’ve also recently won the Exante spring slimmer of the season (Spring 2020), which I’m very excited about! - Photos to follow soon !!! 

I'm also exited to announce that just recently I achieved my initial target goal of losing 9 stone which I felt would be very hard to achieve. Words just cannot describe how happy I really am to have made the target goal and have also managed to now fit into size 12 clothes.

I have now set my final goal to achieve a total loss of 10 stone, so my target weight I have set at 12st 6.5lb although im not too far away now from reaching my target, this last stone is proving to be rather a challenge. 

My journey was also recently in the daily mail from an Exante advert, and

right now I’m feeling so fantastic about myself and my achievements I am happy to show my journey to the public that this diet truly works, and although I now only have a short journey to go, with the Exante plan I’m positive I will reach my final goal.


After a terrible accident, I had slowly started to put on the weight, I had been diagnosed with PTSD along with problems with my back.

Originally I thought I was coping in general and that I was ok, but I didn’t realise how much made an impact on me in terms of significant weight gain. 

Since starting to lose weight with Exante, I’m now starting to find myself again, day to day I’m getting more confident, much happier which has given me a new lease of life.

During my journey my aches and pains have had a significant reduction, I’m not having to take pain tablets for my back every 4 hours !!! So feeling more alive day by day which now at 44, in my opinion is better late than never !! Lol 

I really can’t recommend Exante enough! It has seriously changed my life, in more ways than one !!
So this page is to keep myself on track, and in the zone ... I have the determination to eventually achieve my target weight and then maintain!!! ..... and hopefully who knows, maybe we can all motivate each other ! 


I have an Instagram that you can follow alongside too , where I update and do my IGTV videos and answer any questions I can to help and also look out for my YouTube channel soon !! 


Instagram link is at the top of page ! 

Remember we all got this !!!

Measurements time !

(Let’s see what I’ve lost) Well, I always say to people that if the scales don’t move , don’t forget to check your measurements... So I thought I’d better listen to my own Advice ! So I went and got my tape measure out and had a look . It shocks me to say that I have lost the equivalent of 6 feet 6 inches all over !... that’s mind boggling isn’t it ! In total 78 inches .....

Have you ever Woke up with a wobble ....

( I have !.... Be ready for those days !) Some days are just like that , it’s life ... whether you are on a diet or not .... Somedays you have to dig deeper than normal. But the trick is , to never give up ! .... keep trying , keep striving for what you want out of that day ... take one day at a time . When I first started Exante , I had read all the advice from people saying that it’s the first few days that can be hard , then it gets easier, and that is definitely true, onc

Just call me Bilbo-Baggins!!!

(Time for a clear-out !!....) So I thought after 8 months on the Exante diet, perhaps it was time to sort my clothes out !! I’d been telling myself that they were ok still to wear and that I’d just be in baggy clothes. Not that I’d really worn much of it anyway, as I’d basically been in leggings/jogging bottoms and a hoodie for ..... well quite frankly years !! .... x So today was the day !!!! Most of my clothes were size 24/26, with a few 22 that I’d been hoping to get into

Kates losing it !

Why I set this Blog up...

I decided to set this blog up to try and share helpful information about my journey to other folk who are starting out on their weight loss.

I was getting a lot of messages asking about different things, so I thought id try and help put as much information as I could in one place.

The blog will probably evolve along the way as this is a work in progress as am I!


Hopefully I will post some stuff that may help someone on their journey too.

Join up if you want to catch the latest blogs .

Good luck, we have got this!
