WeightMasters is here to help you master your weight for good.
When it comes to dieting, you’ve been there. You’ve done it. You’ve bought the t-shirt (and the books, and the shakes, and the group membership). You are tired of losing the weight, then putting it all back on over the course of weeks or months. Over and over again.
Sound familiar? This was me before. Then I decided to take decisive action and make it the last time. Since then I have lost a total of 50 pounds and kept it off using a simple, well structured and sustainable diet and exercise regime. This time I did things differently - and it worked.
I am here to tell you that you CAN lose that weight and keep it off for good. I know this to be true because I have achieved it myself. But you have to make some tough decisions first.
- Are you willing to work hard mentally and physically to do it?
- Are you willing to make the best choices day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, to achieve your goal?
- Are you willing to look inside yourself to find and keep hold of the burning desire to make a permanent life change?
If you answered no to any of these questions, this isn't the site for you.
If you are still reading, congratulations. You have taken the first step to Weight Mastery.
I’d had enough of being overweight, unhealthy and unconfident. So I finally made the decision to get off my backside and do something about it - for good

Hi, I am Kate and I am the founder of WeightMasters. Let me tell you a bit about my story.
I spent most of my adult life struggling with my weight. I fluctuated between pretty slim (never skinny) to overweight, many times over. I tried every diet in the book, from Atkins through to WeightWatchers, round the houses past the 5:2 and back again! I've wasted more money on gym memberships than I care to think about. I managed to achieve a healthy weight several times, but could never make it stick for long. I even managed to keep 25 pounds off for 5 years (after initially losing 40!), but I was still 25 pounds overweight.
I had every excuse in the book - “I love food too much”, “I am too busy to eat well and exercise”, “it runs in the family”, “my job means I have to wine and dine” etc etc etc. I pretended to myself that I could live being slightly bigger. But deep down I knew that I would never feel truly comfortable in my own skin unless I made a big change. I thought about it every day, many times over, but could never find that big enough ‘why’ to finally overcome the excuses and the obstacles.
Then one day I woke up and looked in the mirror. It was 5 days after Christmas, I’d overindulged significantly and I had a wedding to attend. I put on my dress and felt like a big fat lump. I spent most of the day hiding from the photographer, feeling self conscious and uncomfortable. The worst thing was that I knew that would be me in 3 months - the one in the white dress with everyone staring and snapping away.
The next day I asked myself some tough questions. Was I ready to spend what was supposed to be the happiest day of my life feeling like this? Was I willing to let my wedding photos sit in a cupboard gathering dust for the rest of my life because I was too ashamed to look at them?
That moment I decided enough was enough. I was fed up with living like this, ashamed of the only body I had. I was angry with myself for allowing this to happen. I had always prided myself on being a strong, competent person, able to cope with anything life could throw at me. But I hadn’t found the strength to master my own weight.
After giving myself a good old talking to, I made a big decision. That would be the last day I would feel this way. For the rest of my life, I would feel good about the way I treated my body. I would seize control of my weight and my health for good. I would use this negative energy and turn in into something positive.
But what about all the times I’d tried before? I had always failed eventually. This time HAD to be different. So I went about it in a whole new way - and it worked.
In February 2015 I began to create WeightMasters.net. This site is dedicated to sharing the secrets of my success with you in great detail, but the short version is simple - a do anywhere, 'life friendly' diet and exercise programme, driven by a powerful combination of mindfulness and preparation.
There are a couple of important things I should tell you at this point. Firstly, I do NOT starve myself - I eat healthy, tasty food that satiates me, and allow myself treats. Secondly, I spend no more than 4 hours a week exercising (a little over 2% of my life). I am not a gym member, and I use no equipment except for my own body.
So how has this impacted my life? I feel more confident than I ever have. Confident enough to start this website for starters - something I never imagined I would be brave enough to do. I feel comfortable in my own skin - I can wear the clothes I always dreamed of. I am fit enough to do pretty much any activity that I want to do - no more fear of embarrassing breathlessness whilst walking up a hill!
Mastering my weight has been the biggest achievement of my life.
It is now my mission to share what I have learnt along the way in order to help other people conquer their weight loss for good.
