this is me

I've always believed in accountability, and I regularly share on my blog things I'm going to do... and then that's as far as it goes. Well, not this year. This year is about me making me accountable, and the only way to make this one stick is to put it out there. (check out this article from Mandi Erhman of Life... Your Way on Simple Mom for more on accountability)

This is me. In a change room mirror.
All 83kgs of me.

My measurements are 43/43/43 (109.5cm)
I have a double chin.
I look pregnant.

I want to change the way I look at food, and exercise, and be here in thirty years time to share another Christmas with my children, and their children, and their children's children.


  1. Wishing you the best of luck!!!

  2. thats very brave Cate!! I darent even measure myself at the moment with all the xmas excess let alone share it!! best of luck to you xx

  3. Accountability is so important isn't it? And I'm in the same boat as you needing to get back into shape. Small changes, long term. xx

  4. Cate ~ Congratulations on taking this brave step! I admire you so much for this. I'm wishing you all the best in your quest for health. YOU deserve to be healthy and happy! xo

  5. Cate - you are such a beautiful person. Wishing you all the best on this journey. xx

  6. Hi Cate, Happy New Year! I just came upon your blog by random. You can do it if you really want to. Like your thirst for water when you are thirsty. What works for me is to keep my hands busy so I can't use them to put food in my mouth. I wish you all the success with this and just remember, it is more important what beauty you have on the inside and what beautiful things you create in this life! Hugs, Annie

  7. you are so brave putting your weight out there. I recently did the same thing and I would so love for you to join in our Battle of the Blogger Butt Challenge. come and link up with us at www.sevencherubs.com

    it is amazing what having kids and being a busy mother does to your body. This year I am trying to focus on me a little more. Good luck. naomi x

  8. Wow, I admire you for putting this out here! Good luck, I look forward to seeing future pics along your journey. I am doing monthly weight and measurements but they won't be seen on my blog or by anyone , they ae tucked away @@

  9. Golly - that is brave - I did a layout last June when I was determined to get a stone or two shifted ... it went on rather than off! Then I started again on February 1st and again I gained :o(
    I have finally started shifting it off again by NOT snacking ... and am back at February 1st's weight on April 3rd! Now to avoid all Easter Eggs!
