Kate’s weight loss journey began just under two years ago, when her health concerns started to become more serious. At 22 stone, Kate was overweight and decided she needed to do something to be healthier.
Kate’s weight was constantly on her mind, chipping away at her confidence and self-esteem.
She said she was so unhappy she “stopped going out so much and started to hide away indoors and wasn’t very social at all, then I would be inactive and eat more – so it was a never-ending cycle”.
After trying multiple different diets, Kate came across The Skinny Food Co, which “made lower calories food swaps much easier”.
The company offers slimmers a range of foods with fewer calories and containing much less sugar.
This means people who want to lose weight can still eat their favourite foods, but healthier versions of them.
Examples of these are the sugar free Salted Caramel Pecan Barista Syrup to put in a cup of coffee, low sugar Strawberry Jam to put on toast, and low-calorie Garlic Mayo to pair with a salad.
Speaking about her weight loss transformation, Kate said: “I think my determination came from realising that I had to do something about my weight before it was too late.
“I was in my 40s and I thought that if I don’t do something now, I never will.
“So, I dug deep and kept reminding myself why I started the journey.”
Kate credits The Skinny Food Co for feeling much healthier and happier in her body.
She said: “The reason I kept putting off losing the weight was that I didn’t find a healthy eating plan that suited me.
“I also had mobility issues due to a car accident a few years ago resulting in my back giving me a lot of problems, so I wasn’t exercising as much.
“I was very unhappy being overweight and tried to hide the fact that I was, but I was desperately sad inside and angry at myself.
“However, once I found the right plan and incorporated Skinny Food Co products into it, it suddenly clicked, and I started to get healthier.”
As for her daily meal plan, Kate has stopped snacking in the evenings and has made “little changes” to her lifestyle, saying: “I used to be an evening snacker, so I had to adjust when I was eating.
“Now in the evenings I have a flavoured coffee from Skinny Food Co as a treat and I look forward to it – my favourite is the Salted Caramel Pecan Barista Syrup.”
The 45-year-old added: “I love to use a dollop of the Skinny Food Co chocolate spread or jam in my porridge in the morning, which keeps me going.
“Sometimes I make baked oats with it, which is delicious.
“With my main meals, I like to use the Skinny Food Co sauces and dressings to accompany them, using the sauce for a pizza base or a pasta dish.
“They really help you stay on track whilst giving you a taste of what you like.”
Kate’s mental health, as well as her physical health, has drastically improved since starting to lose weight.
She said: “I feel so much happier since losing the weight, so much healthier and more active.
“I joined a gym and actually enjoy swimming and exercising now and I have a routine in place that includes a bit of everything I like to do.”
For other people wanting to become healthier or lose weight, Kate advised: “Stop putting it off.
“Start with little changes and healthy food swaps, then keep going.
“You will have the odd day where it doesn’t go quite to plan and bumps in the road happen but once you start seeing progress it’s amazing motivation, and every day is a new day, full of new determination.”
