About Me…

I’m a 32 year old, single girl who lives on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

I’ve had low self esteem and body issues since I was a child and have never been happy with my weight.

I worship Bon Jovi and every song the band has produced.

Over the past 13 years, I have lost and put back on weight constantly and have weighed anywhere between 94kg and 68kgs.

The amount of diets and weight loss programs I’ve been on is astounding.

I’m a primary school teacher which is the most demanding, challenging, time-consuming, fun, rewarding, purposeful job.

Salads and vegetables have only just entered my diet for the first time in my 32 years and I now see food in a whole new light.

I’m studying at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and LOVING it.

I’ve suffered from depression and binge eating.

Running is my passion.

The most traumatic and unbelievable experience of my life was running a marathon in July 2013.

I live in a unit with my gorgeous black and white cat Sookie. I have white cat fur all over everthing I own.

My journey has taken me from rock bottom – to on top of the world! I can honestly say I love my body, my mindset and my life. I hope to share my journey with you xxx

  1. HI Kim,

    Its your fellow IIN class mate from Brisbane. After our coaching call this morning I loved what I heard you talk about.
    Your blog name also jummped out at me so I got straight on to check it out.

    I love you honesty and you determanation. You would be inspiring so many just as your running group girls inspire you.

    I am also a fellow runner. I love it. I have never done a marathon though. WOW to you for doing one. I have done the gold coast half marathon in 2012. I run around 9k 3 days a week, but do it on my own so it can get a little boring.

    Would be great to stay in touch although Im a bit older than you. I just turned 40 on Saturday !! Yikes Im getting old. But never been so fit and healthy so that’s a good thing.
    Keep up the great work and I look forward to more of your blog.
