The Full Story
Welcome to Kates losing it !, My very own Blog !... yes me !?... with a Blog... who would have thought that.
Here’s a little bit about myself !
I’m 47 years old and I’m 5ft 9” tall.
My weight loss journey started in May 2019, where my starting weight was nearly 23 stone.
I realised along the way that it wasn’t just about the scales but it was my mindset , health & happiness too .. so I had to start taking care of my mind aswell as my body …
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'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 in the daily mail & magazines ( absolutely sereal!!)
Right now I’m feeling great , although I am menopausal have a couple of stone to lose that I did gain after I was grieving, last year , but that’s one of the curveballs of life I suppose and I’m determined to carry on my blog as honestly as I can !!!
How I put that weight on ….
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.
I started out by losing weight with Exante ( a meal replacement) and then on to healthy recipes and calorie counting. Im 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 47 , in my opinion is better late than never !! Lol
So losing weight 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 !!!
As long as you keep trying ,you are winning everyday
You never fail unless you give up !...
