Kate Thornton compares weight gain during menopause to Shallow Hall

Kate Thornton says her weight gain during menopause resembles Gwyneth Paltrow’s character Shallow Hal.

The 49-year-old TV presenter appeared on Loose Women on Thursday – where she was previously a member of the jury from 2009 to 2011.

She shared about her experience with menopause and how she “lost” herself, and revealed that she gained weight as part of the process.

Confiding to viewers, Kate revealed: “I approach menopause the same way I approach a documentary. It is controlling and consuming me so I will push back and regain control.

“It stripped me of a personality that I liked and 15 other people moved in. I didn’t believe in myself. Gaining weight like Shallow Hal, I just woke up one day already like it. [blows air]. “

Kate added: “I didn’t eat anything different, I cried a lot.”

In Shallow Hal, actress Gwyneth Paltrow plays a 300-pound woman named Rosie, whom Hal (Jack Black) falls in love with.

Kate is a proud mother of her son Ben, with whom she previously vowed to quit smoking.

During the coronavirus pandemic, she revealed, “Now that I’ve reached the fitness level I want, it’s time for me to sign a contract and give up smoking.

“The first time I gave up was in my early 30s when I had a chest infection.”

But then she reverted to the habit, before giving it up again to have a baby with ex-boyfriend DJ Darren Emerson.

“It was a great motivator, and I used Nicorette patches,” she said.

However, about 4 years after having Ben, she started to get stressed again. Kate says her loss of time has turned into “difficulty in my personal life”.

But this time she is determined to give up forever.

She said: “My son is now of age to see a doctor. When I smoked, he got really angry, which I completely understand.

“I don’t smoke around him. I keep it for the best possible social events. But he said it was ridiculous and stupid and ‘Why would you do that?’, repeated. I know where he comes from.

“It’s not nice to be around. It’s time to stop. He’s the reason why I do it. My job is to be his role model. I know that smoking is a big disappointment for him.”

During her incarceration, Kate worked out hard on her fitness level.

“I do HIIT six times a week and I’m stronger than I’ve been in a long time,” she says. It’s got two weeks to lock in and I think, we’ll go either way here. I will be the woman who sits and drinks or eats their way through this or I will be the woman who says this is a reset. “
