My name is Karen Dooley and I want to see you T H R I V E.

Since having weight loss surgery in 2014, I have dedicated my life to finding a sustainable, healthy lifestyle. I’ve used my instagram @kiwithetattooedlady as a way to share my life post-weight loss; the good, the bad and the ugly.

My passion lies in cooking and nutrition; finding new ways to make old favourites a part of your daily diet. I’ve struggled my entire life as an overweight person – dealing with eating disorders and body image problems, even after reaching my “goal weight.” I want to help others understand that we as individuals are more than just a number on the scale. My focus as a health coach is not on quick-fix weight loss or diet plans; it’s about eating and living better for life.

I post recipes often and you can now check out my S E R V I C E S page. Take a look around, let me know if there’s a recipe YOU want to see revamped and let’s get healthy!


I’m also a proud partner with and participant of Inspire Transformation Academy and would love for you to join me! Why be inspired when you can be inspiring?

Inspire Transformation Academy exists to provide women with the best resources to reach and exceed their wildest dreams (weight loss included). We believe you can be one of those people who pulls it off simply by putting yourself first.
