Don’t judge my story by the chapter you walked in on. - In the past few days I have been slammed with a bunch of names. Lazy, unhealthy, unmotivated, a failure, fat, unfit, uninspiring, chubby, bad example, careless, I have no willpower, I don’t care about my body, I don’t care about my health, and I have been told multiple times that I’m a terrible role model 🤷🏽♀️ - For people to say I looked “healthier” when I was skinnier proves how uneducated we are about “health”. When I was my smallest I was far from healthy. I over exercised, under ate, restricted food groups, lacked energy, completely lost my sex drive, I had a poor social life and my relationships deteriorated. I experienced body dysmorphia, mood swings, constant negative self talk and spent years counting my calories and being in a calorie deficit. Yet I was “healthier”!?! 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ - Over coming these things and living a balanced life in which I love my body, have loads of self confidence, no health problems and am genuinely happy is so much more important to me than chasing a number on the scales. I eat a balanced diet with no restriction, train 5-6 times a week for enjoyment, have an amazing social life and relationship, experience no disordered eating and literally am the happiest I’ve ever been...I don’t understand how that is “unhealthy”? - I am not “back where I started”, I didn’t “give up”, I haven’t “let myself go” and I am NOT “a failure”. I am also not promoting obesity, laziness, or complacency. I am promoting happiness, self confidence, self love, positivity and I simply want to encourage all of you to live YOUR best life, whatever that may look like ❤️
Снимките "отпреди" на Кейт са от 2014 г., когато тя е била в добра спортна форма, с ниско тегло и е носила малък размер дрехи.
Your life is your message to the world - make sure it’s inspiring 👌🏼 - We said goodbye to our air bnb this morning and headed to the @komunebali resort to start my first ever fitness retreat with @activediscoveryretreats !! I’m so excited to have the opportunity to share my message of self love and body positivity with a bunch of fresh faces and open minds. This little passion of mine is taking me to some amazing places and I am so thankful that I get to impact other peoples lives through this platform 🥰 - If you’re not keeping up on my stories now is the time to join me on there to stay up to date ❤️ P.S The Bali spam isn’t ending any time soon 😉 Sorry not sorry 🤷🏽♀️
Днес обаче, през 2020 г., Кейт е с апетитни, закръглени форми и с над 30 кг повече. Тя е горда с начина, по който изглежда и се чувства. "Не публикувам този колаж, защото искам да изглеждам по този начин или искам да сравня снимките. Просто си спомням колко вманиачена съм била тогава. Напомня ми за тъгата, контролът и това, че никога не се чувствах достатъчно добра", пише Кейт.
I find it so hard to look at old photos and remember being that girl 💔 - Not because I wish I still looked like that or because I compare my body. But because it reminds me of how obsessed I was. It reminds me of when I would exclude myself from social events so I didn’t have to eat out. It reminds me of losing time with my friends, family and husband because I chose the gym above everything. It reminds me of daily weigh ins, secret binges and constantly wanting to be less. And you know what, it reminds me of sadness, being self conscious and never feeling like I was good enough. - I can tell you that weighing less does not mean your life will suddenly be better. Long term happiness, fulfillment and purpose doesn’t come from short term weight loss. I know that I would much rather be curvier/bigger/thicker, be free from diet culture and have freedom around food, than be “lean” and consumed by weighing less, seeing those numbers go down every day and counting the calories in my lettuce leaves. . - Remember that sometimes gaining weight is simply a side effect of living your best life, and that “healthy” looks different on every body. Maybe it’s time to trust yours and let it do it’s thing ❤️
Кейт признава, че във времето, в което се съобразявала с обществените представи за хубаво тяло, тя е пропускала не едно събитие, защото е трябвало да тренира. Толкова била вманиачена, че се качвала всеки ден на кантара.

"Трябва да ви кажа, че по-малкото тегло не прави живота по-хубав", признава тя. "Щастието и чувството за удовлетвореност не идва от теглото".
THIS IS ME ❤️ - No fancy lighting, no beautiful outfit, no gorgeous background, no super flattering pose. Just me. Real, raw, and 100% untouched. - And you know what, I LOVE what I see. Because I see a women who is comfortable in her own skin. A woman who has accepted all parts of her body - stretch marks, cellulite, pudgy tummy, loose skin, wobbly thighs - and despite what society says she is still HAPPY. - Don’t get me wrong, sharing a photo like this still scares the sh*t out of me. But if sharing me in my bikini, raw and unfiltered helps just one of you feel ‘normal’, then it’s worth the fear. Because that’s my mission. To help others realise that you don’t need to be ‘perfect’ to be happy 😘🙌🏼
"Предпочитам да съм пухкава, но да не спазвам диети и да имам свободата да избирам храната си вместо да отслабвам и да броя калориите в марулите", пише още Кейт.
