Hi, my name is Kate, I am a happily married mother of one. I have been a weight watcher lifetime member for over 17 years. I first joined in 1998 to try and lose the 20-25 pounds I had put on in my early 20’s, my lifestyle was all about fast food and clubbing, so the pounds went on quickly. I was getting married in 2000 and wanted to be back down to a comfortable weight for my wedding. I was able to lose the weight quickly by following the program and achieved my lifetime status.
When I married in September 2000 I weighed 130lbs. It was after the wedding that I started to let things slide, I got too comfortable in my everyday life and my eating got out of control. In 2002 I got pregnant with my daughter, who was born March 2003. With my pregnancy I reached a weight of 198lbs, and after having my daughter I stayed around 185-190lbs for the longest time. For 11 years I struggled with my weight, I rejoined weight watchers over and over again, each time with so much motivation. Most times I would commit and do great for the first 2 weeks and then I would fail and give up. I was constantly sabotaging myself saying “oh well I screwed up today, I’ll start again next Monday”, well I had 11 years of Mondays!! I became depressed, I never wanted to go out, I’d make excuses for not attending parties because I just wasn’t comfortable in my own skin. I hated shopping for clothes as I dreaded all the emotions that came with it! In 2011 I joined WW once again and was able to lose almost 30lbs bringing my weight down to 160, I felt great… but it was short lived and within 6 months I gained it all back and once again gave up on myself! That destroyed me, I was so frustrated with myself, how could I do so well and then just gain it all back? Well welcome to the world of “the struggle is real” , and weight loss has got to be one of the hardest struggles of all!
In January of 2014, I once again said enough is enough and started my journey, but something was different this time, I seemed to have a different mindset, my will power was at a all time high and I turned to Instagram to log my journey. That turned out to be one of the best things I could of done. There is an amazing weight watcher and weight loss community on instagram and the support I instantly received was so welcoming and it gave me the motivation to succeed. I followed people who had been through the same struggles and I felt like I belonged in this community, and I was definitely welcomed with open arms. I made some sacrifices and decided no more dining out and limited alcohol. So by sticking to these commitments, and all the support I was receiving in my new community, the weight started to easily come off. I wanted to do well as I wanted to start inspiring others, and that is exactly what happened, people started telling me that they were inspired by me, and that just meant the world to me. If I could help just one person decide that today is the day then I feel good about that. Today I weigh 140lbs, and I earned back my lifetime status in November 2014, I am happy with my progress, and I have finally learned that this is a lifestyle change. Over the coarse of my journey I found a new love for getting creative in the kitchen, and curing my sweet tooth, drizzling things with dark chocolate became a new passion of mine, realizing that just a little went a long way, and that my friends is how drizzlemeskinny.com was born.
I don’t claim to be a chef, or professional baker, I am no nutritionist, I just enjoy creating weight watcher friendly foods in the comfort of my kitchen, and that is what you will find in this website. I keep things pretty simple, a lot of my recipes are basic ingredients that most people have in their kitchen. Right now it’s just me, my creative eye (or at least I think it is) and my camera. I hope you can find some simple recipes on here that will help you on your weight loss journey. And please always feel free to reach out to me for support.
