About Me

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.

 

On the left was Jan 6/2014, the day I walked into weight watchers for the last time over weight, weighing in at 186.6, the right is January 2017, weighing 137lbs.

        Hi Lora… Thank you and good luck on your journey! The only exercise I do is walking, that said I walk a lot! During the bulk of my journey losing the weight I walked on avg 5-7km/day, even is blizzards and snow storms lol… I love walking, I have never been a gym rat and have never had a gym membership.. I am in my 40’s and I have been blessed with my mother’s genes and the arthritis is already kicking in, plus I have worked for myself the last 20+ years with my own cleaning business, mainly commercial buildings and it had caused a lot of wear and tare to my body.. so really walking is the best thing for me, it is not too strenuous and it’s one of the best things you can do 🙂 Another big motivator for me was starting my Instagram account, I logged my food daily and my weekly weigh in and it held me accountable.. Make this your last time… you owe it to yourself.. and don’t waist any more years, I wasted far too many… You got this 🙂

      Hi Kate! Reading your journey sounds very similar to mine! I couldn’t believe it. My weight has been up and down since having my son (who is 19 now btw) but I started weight watchers 2 days ago and this time somethings different. I’m more motivated because I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. I’m so glad I found you on Instagram and here! Many blessings to you!!

    Hi Kate. You probably don’t remember me as we only met a few times. I’m married to Dave Costello and lived with Phil and Trish. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a while now and you have inspired me to rejoin WW. About 15 years ago I lost 30 but have gained that plus due to a husband that is an awesome cook and 2 knee surgeries. Just want to thank you for giving me the courage to take control again. Thanks Julie.

Good for you for joining up again.. that’s the first step.. and stick with it, commit and remind yourself often why your doing it.. and how you want to look and feel at the end of it.. that part is so rewarding 🙂 Keep me posted Julie 🙂 Take care…

    Hi Kate, you look amazing. I have been struggling with my weight for years. I love food and have no self control, I have tried WW 3 times and and all 3 times I gained the weight back that I lost.

    I am so glad I came across your blog, most people in my life don’t understand my struggle including my husband. I hope to gain some positive advice and support.

    Thank you for be you.

This time it was different for me, I wanted it more than I wanted anything.. and now I know I will never go back, I worked too hard for where I am now, plus this was the first time I got more busy and creative in the kitchen, so I never get bored, I am always coming up with new creations to keep me happy.. Having a support system is huge too! I owe my instagram community so much for all the support I receive on there, and it holds me accountable too 🙂 Please reach out anytime, message me on facebook if you ever need to chat 🙂 You got this!!

    Hi Kate, I was scrolling down my page on Facebook and I came across a recipe…DONUTS!!!
    I love donuts and I got on your page and I started reading your story and it’s exactly like mine. I am much older…going to be 60 in August. I have joined weight watchers on and off for many many years. I was a lifetime member for a while… but it seems as though over the last year I’ve had many changes happen in my life and I’ve struggled with a big weight gain. I have never gain this much in my life. I was always tiny all my life up until I had a hysterectomy and it seems as though I cannot take the weight off no matter what I do. I hesitate to join weight watchers again because I really know what to do although I try to follow it at home but it just doesn’t seem to want to come off anymore and I’m so disappointed. I’m going to follow your website and make some of these recipes. I love donuts and I know that I can’t have them (at least the ones they bring into work) so I pass them up when people bring them in. I just smell them!! LOL…If you have any type advice for me please let me know… Thank you… MAKING DONUTS TOMORROW 🙂 😛
    PS … Also making your pork roast…

      Hi Debra.. Thanks for reaching out 🙂 Did you decide if you are going to join WW again? For me going every Monday and weighing in (I choose Monday for a reason, I needed to stay on track over the weekends and my weigh in was normally Friday’s but I would sabotage any loss I had over the weekend with too much splurging and have to fight to take it off during the rest of the week.. so creating a vicious circle!) anyhow weighing in and having my weight recorded in my book by someone helped me huge! I was also very strict during the time period of losing the bulk of my weight, I tracked everything and stuck to my 26pp.. I didn’t use many weeklies (usually just a few for a weekend drink or two) And I made a big sacrifice of no eating out.. Over 6 months I ate out once for a friends 4oth, I knew at home I was in more control of my points, plus it’s what got me so busy in the kitchen and finding my passion for creating so many ww recipes 🙂 I hope you like the donuts… you should make them for your co-workers and tell them to stop bringing those nasty gazillion point ones in 😉 lol… Enjoy your baking!! Let me know what you think

It always been hard because I suffer from binge eating disorder so it’s a struggle everyday to eat the right kind of food and not to binge.

One, stay focused and remember why your doing this..remind yourself daily that you don’t want to waist anymore years (I feel like I wasted so many) time will come and go regardless of what we do.. so dig deep and fight.. and track track track.. a planned out day will take you far.. but also and more importantly don’t let a bad day or two take over.. Get up and keep going.. you got this! 🙂

        Hi Kate:

        I just want to say Thank you for creating this blog and inspiring so many people. I found out about you from pinterest. When I read about you I felt that I was reading about myself. I am 44 5’3 and 174 lbs a mother of a 5 year old a full time employee and a business owner. I too feel like Shelley above. I have struggled with my weight since my first year of university after gaining the “freshman 15” and reached 145 lbs which at the time I thought was “fat” I now look back on that and wish that I could only be that weight again I would never say the word fat again. I have joined and rejoined weight watchers time and time again. I joined weight watchers and exercised daily and had my weight under control and got married in 1998 at 128 lbs unfortunately that turned out to be a verbally abusive relationship and I turned to food to repress my emotions and try to find happiness where there was none. My father passed away in 2005 with a massive heart attack and at that time I weighted 162 lbs I then decided it was time to leave my marriage and focus on making myself happy and healthy. I joined weight watchers and walked 10 km every day I lost 27 lbs and felt great at 135 lbs again. I then met a wonderful man and things were great for a year until he was hospitalized for almost a year due to Chron’s disease and underwent several surgeries I spent 2 years travelling back and forth between my home town and the hospital where my partner was 4 hours away. During that time I was scared, afraid and depressed that I was going to lose him and I lost total focus on myself again and was totally centered on doing whatever I could to keep my partner alive. I again ate to repress my emotions and to fulfill a void that was there while I was alone and he was in hospital. I ate on the road and didn’t exercise all my time and energy was dedicated to him. When he finally recovered, I was again back up to my 162 that I had fought so hard to lose years before. In 2010 I gave birth at 39 to a beautiful baby girl that I never thought I would be able to have. When I left the hospital I was 208 lbs. The heaviest I had ever been in my life. I looked at myself in the mirror and didn’t know who I was or what had brought me there. Its only now that I can see the road that lead me to 208lbs. Over the past 5 years I have lost 34lbs I have rejoined and joined weight watchers over and over again and I am working towards getting “back on track” AGAIN for as you would say “the last time”. I’ve got 40 lbs to lose a full time job a business to run on the side and a 5 year old child that’s about to enter school but I know that like you I need to stop eating out prepare my meals at home and set out a time to get on my treadmill and walk that 40 lbs off. I need to get on a schedule. Thanks for being my inspiration and for sharing your story and most importantly the recipes that are so helpful. Every road has ups and downs and so does weight loss. No one said it would be easy but the end result is always great. Good luck to you and everyone else that shares the same struggle.

          Hi Cathy, a big thank you to sharing your story, you brought tears to my eyes, you have been through so much and please know you are a very strong woman, sounds like to me you know exactly what you have to do to get back to your desired weight, and you will get there, now it’s time to focus on you, like you said making some sacrifices (eating out was huge for me) and having a plan as far as what to eat will help you stay on track.. I would try to at least plan out my following day in meals and 95% of the time I stayed on track plus it just made my day easier knowing what I was eating/cooking .. Please keep in touch during your journey, I would love to know how you are doing.. you can email me to if you ever need to reach out ( kate@drizzlemeskinny.com) I look forward to reading about your success 🙂

    Kate – thank you for this wonderful site. I have had weight issues all my life – becoming morbidly obese during that past couple of decades. Last March (2015) I hit a number I swore I would never get to – my rock bottom. Since then I’ve lost 122 lbs – half way to my goal weight. I’m looking forward to trying your recipes. My husband has been supportive and had made his own sacrifices as well and has lost 40 lbs – but I think he’s getting tired of my recipes!!

    I just discovered your web site while browsing Pinterest. OMG I am in love with all of your recipes! I loved reading about your WW journey also! You have done so great! Seeing and reading about your accomplishments makes me feel that there is still hope for me! I joined Weight Watchers once 3 years ago and lost 75 lbs. Though due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to quit so I gained all my weight back 🙁 Though here I am at it again for my 2nd try! I started at 306 lbs 🙁 I am now down to 280 and I refuse to quit or give up this time! I am also determined to keep the weight off! I have lost 26 lbs so far and I have a long ways to go! I want to lose about 120 lbs total. Thank you for your wonderful web site and recipes! You have gained a new fan 🙂

    Thank you for your blog and recipes. I have really struggled losing weight and keeping it off. I became a lifetime member probably 20 years ago but I am far from it now. I was up to 195 pounds before I began to freak out. I joined last May and lost about 25 lbs and then stopped trying around October. Gained 5 back and here I am starting a new session. I am determined to do it this time. I would love to be down to around 135 but my initial goal and lifetime weight is 150. I will be trying out your recipes and try to find what works for me. Thanks for the encouragement.

    I heard about you at a WW meeting last night. Your story mirrors mine and so I am starting again for the LAST time at 194 with a goal of 130. I am inspired by your story and look forward to the creating recipes.

    Hi Kate,

    I’ve recently found your blog and wow! So many amazing looking recipes and I can’t wait to try some of them out! I love your thesis that you use basic ingredients, because lets face it that’s what a lot of us want, especially in this world when none of us have much time. I too have been up and down with my weight so I’m hoping a bit of focus now will help me get down to a more manageable weight and help me feel better in myself. Love from London, Lizzie

      Hi Lizzie… Happy to hear you found me (all the way from London..I am assuming London England?) I was born in Manchester but came to Canada when I was 4 🙂 I hope you enjoy all the recipes and good luck on your journey 🙂

    Hello, I’m so excited to find your blog/Instagram. I too lost 30lbs years ago and of course gained it all back but now that I’m 45 and diabetic, my daughter informed us her and her husband are trying to have a baby! I realized I need to get healthy to be around for many more years. Your blog along with others have made it so much easier and I don’t feel alone and my husband has joined me this time around so it’s made it easier. Thanks for sharing your story. Looking forward to trying your recipes.

      Hi Liz.. Thank you for your kind words, so glad you are focusing on you again and getting healthy, you did it before so you know what you need to do.. Just keep fighting and don’t ever give up, and biggest advice I can give is don’t let a bad meal or day get the better of you, move on and keep going.. So glad to hear your husband is supporting you and taking the journey on with you, that is awesome, good luck to you both (and your daughter with trying for a family, how exciting!)

    Hi Kate!
    Reading about you is like reading about myself. I’ve really struggled a lot with weightloss. Started so many different programs just to give up in a matter of days. Making up excuses and telling myself I’ll start again on Monday is one of the things I tell myself constantly. You are such an inspiration and I hope that after reading your story I will finally stick to my weightloss goals. Your recipes look amazing and so easy to make. I love cooking and do so every night so these should help me tremendously. Thank you for creating such a wonderful site!!!

    I’m so glad I found you on Instagram today! I read your blog and it truly connected to me. I’ve struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember and I’m finally ready to commit. I’ve been on WW for 3 weeks now and at first I was excited to see the weight coming off (6lbs in 10 days) but I’m feeling defeated as the scale has not budged for the last 9. Is there something I’m doing wrong? I’m staying in my 30 points or slightly less everyday and barely using my weekly. Does menstrul cycle affect weight? I could really use some encouragement/reassurance. I want this to work SO badly. Your story felt like you were reading about me and I thank you for sharing❤️

      Hi Sarah, thank for reaching out and congrats on your success.. Please know everyone is different, how I lose weigh and how you lose weight could be totally different, as long as you work the program and being honest with yourself then I always say the program will work for you, will there be bumps in the road, absolutely, and yes that time of the month affects all us women differently, I can easily be up a few pounds that week.. just keep at it, don’t give up, that’s what I did for way too many years continually self sabotaging myself.. the scale will catch up.. You got this! 🙂

    Hi kate! I’ve seen you in Instagram just out of the blue….I’ve wanted to do weight watchers for a very long time. After my doctor visit today. My doc told me to do weight watchers for 6 months…just to see how the weight comes off since I’m battling with pcos. You have definitely spark my interest in eating good healthy foods while trying to loose the weight. Tomorrow I will be purchasing weight watchers and will be documenting my weight loss journey on Instagram. Thanks for being an inspiration to me and others that’s struggling to loose the weight. Not any more. Ready to kill the fat!

      Hi Cindy, thanks for reaching out 🙂 Just remind yourself how badly you want it, for me I got to that point where I wanted more than I wanted anything else and I was finally ready to work on me.. and the end result is so worth all the hard days, weeks and months.. also don’t let a bad day or week ruin your progress so far, I made that mistake and wasted 11 years 🙁 Good luck on your journey, reach out anytime 🙂

    Hi! I just found your website, recommended from the WW Connect. I am so excited, inspired and motivated by everyone’s posts. My story seems to be like everyone else’s! A 40 year Yo Yo, dieter. So hoping that this is it! Started back at WW a month ago, not fully into it yet, but meal planning and prepping is where I fall flat! Need to get that organized so that there is no last minute freak out, of nothing to eat!!
    I love to bake, so excited to see I can make a batch of muffins to grab and go during the week! If you have any tips for meal planning and prepping I would love to hear them. I think at the moment it is just a mental block and I just need to do it! Thanks for sharing your story and journey! I have 40 pounds to loose, 60 years old and motivated!!

      Hi Jane, thank s for reaching out and sharing a little about your journey, happy you found me and I hope you enjoy the recipes.. For meal planning I always just stick to one day at a time, I try to know the night before what I am making for my 3 meals the following day , I get too overwhelmed planning out a week and don’t often stick to it which can back fire and we sabotage ourselves, but that is me, some have great success planning out their week.. Remind yourself also that one bad meal or even a bad day does not need to ruin your week, you can do it, dig deep and find your “why” 🙂 Good luck!! Reach out anytime!

In one our recent WW meetings, your website was mentioned and also your delicious muffins recipe…I had success and losing 50lbs in 1998 and have rejoined a few times more since then.Gained weight , had children and rejoined in Jan 2017 at my highest pre pregnancy weight of 264lbs…Since then I have lost 15.2lbs. I am not a fan of the new WW plan so I am using my older material from 1998. I am happy to have made 2 of your muffin recipes and my whole family loves them. I am thankful for your receipes, as I don’t feel deprived staying on track😆😆

    I just love your chocolate banana loaf and the cinnamon sugar topped banana blueberry loaf. I made them into 10 muffins so I can get an exact portion.
    Thanks for shareing your baking talents with us. I love to cook but am not creative enough to make my own recipes.
    My husband also loves your baking!!!!
