Hi, my name is Katie, I’m a 23 year old who has been fighting the weight loss battle for most of my life!
I was a nerd at school, who was always picked on because of my size, my mum and pop both struggled with cancer,
while my mum was in hospital my dad was absent, leaving my sisters and myself (all under 10 years old) to fend for ourselves.
Having no friends at school, and the stress at home, I learnt to always turn to food to cheer me up.
Soon after my mum was given the all clear, we lost our home and were forced to sleep on friends floors, again turning to food, getting bigger and bigger.
By the time I was in year 7 I was already over 80 kg (I am only 165cm tall!!).
During high school I constantly lost then put on weight over and over again.
I met the love of my life, we have been together for over 3 years and are getting married next year!
I want to be at a healthy weight for our wedding, so I can start a healthy life with him and not have a family who is over weight and going through the pains I did, and still do, with the struggle to lose weight and keep it off.
I currently am 110.2kg, I was at my heaviest this time last year, maxing the scales at 115.9kg.
I have decided to do something I never imagined, and blog my weight loss and tell people the amount I am now, as an incentive to keep going and shedding the kgs so I wont be embarrassed anymore!
I hope to become fitter and healthier, and will happily appreciate any advice, success stories, etc anyone has to offer!
Thanks for reading, and I hope to get to know everyone better, and be thinner soon!
