Facing myself head on

There is nothing like fear. Fear of failure is something I face far too often. It creates stress and anxiety so I’ll  just drop whatever I was doing at the time and move on. Facing my fears and telling my stories is going to stop this cycle. 

Sharing my weight with you is helping me but boy is it scary. For far too long I’ve lived my life in a state of body dysmorphia. Believing I am thinner than what I actually am. Hiding from the truth. Not seeing the state of myself, of my health. Settling with what I have. I’m sick of settling. I want more out of life. So here goes….

Last week when I gave myself a good reality check my weight was 111.7Kg

Today after joining MyFitnessPal and not buying junk I weigh 


I have felt an incredible amount of support already. Friends are offering to go on walks with me, suggesting different weight loss products. It’s all fantastic and I’m so excited to share it with you all. Even if I’m fretting on the inside. 

My first goal is a 5% loss. So I’m hoping to get there in five weeks. Hopefully it will be a Good Friday all round. Once I get to my goal I’ll share another shot with my clock 🙂


Hi! I'm Kate, I hail from Melbourne with my three loves, Willow, Matisse and my husband Dan. I enjoy staying active, attempting to be crafty, discovering new recipes and fun things to do with my daughters. I have found that becoming a mum has tapped in to this raw positive energy that I never knew I had. In this weird new world I live in I've found that I need to look after myself more to keep myself healthy and be a positive role model for the littler ones. Keeping this in mind has kept me on track to create the best me and be a better Mum. Well it's a work in progress but we all need to aspire to something right? I am also a writer, chugging away at that elusive novel but now is the time people. I am writing and you get to hear all about it, just joking, I won't bore you with that. If you want to know where I'm at please feel free to ask it might give me a boot to get me going in my less motivated of moments. I'm passionate about women's rights, equality, children's rights and mental health. I want to say social justice as a whole but it is so broad. I believe we all have the right to be the best that we can. I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing my crazy life.

    1. That’s exactly right. Just keep going. I have to learn how to overcome my slip ups and just get back in to the swing of things. That’s what seems to undo me every time.


  1. Hi MummaKate
    Very proud of you for being so candid and real and sharing something so personal. The hardest thing in life is sometimes to be true to your own self.
    Look forward to your journey ahead and celebrating the smashing of your goals with you.
    Cheers to your honesty and future.
    Well done!


    1. Thanks Bree, I’ve been running away from the truth for far too long now. It will help me get to my goal being honest and accountable. I really appreciate your support x
