I’m Kate, a busy mum of three bouncy urchins aged 6, 3 and 6 months and wife to wonderful hardworking, homebrewing husband Ben. After the latest addition to our family I decided it was time to do something about my weight, which had been steadily increasing throughout my twenties and early thirties.

In August 2016 we went on a family holiday. Fun was had and photographs were taken – and I was horrifed by what I saw. On the plane on the way home I made a decision to join a Slimming World group. We landed at 1am on Saturday morning and by 8.30am I was on my way to the local group for my first weigh in. And the rest, as they say, is history…

I’ve lost over 2 stone following the plan in just 4 months and will be working on shedding that final stone to achieve my dream weight throughout 2017.

This blog is in no way affiliated with or endorsed by Slimming World, I simply wanted to share my experiences with others in the same situation as me – particularly homes ruled by a tribe of wayward tiny humans who demand biscuits every 20 minutes.
