This is MY YEAR

I’ve been working on the mummakate blog for over a year now and this is the most challenging thing I have written. For a while there I focused more on working on a baby so the blog took a bit of a back seat. What also took a back seat was the focus on weight loss, a nice relief for someone who feels like they spend their life dieting.


I’m not talking a few kilos I’m talking about 20. They were very well-earned and I stayed under what I did with Matisse but now it’s not as easy to focus on myself with two little ones so I need to change things up a bit.


One of the most successful components to any of my weight losses has been people. That’s where you come in. You are going to be my people.

I’ve done all sorts of things in the past and now I’ve got two big drivers to push me forward. Another big motivator has been my Mum, she recently had some health issues which put everything in to perspective. I need to be healthy for myself and my girls.

I gave up smoking five years ago to have a longer better quality of life. Now I need to quit this weight. I’m over it.

I saw a commercial for the latest Biggest Loser show the other day, it’s called ‘Transformed’ with ‘real people’ who have ‘real stories’. I’m sure they do and they will have had amazing experiences which I value highly but what they don’t have to do is lead their ‘real lives’ while losing that initial weight in a realistic time frame.

It’s not all glamour and lights but it’s going to be exciting to get to the finish line. I’ve got a timeline of nine months to get there which takes me to Willow’s first birthday on the first of December. Each month I’m going to trial a different method of weight loss and share my experiences of it as I go along.

This month I’m using MyFitnessPal to get me on the way to my 5% goal. I’ve upgraded to the Premium version to get really serious! Tomorrow is my big reveal, I’ll be one week in so let’s see what my weight is. Fingers crossed.

Subscribe to and join in, help me get there. This is MY YEAR



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.
