Back in 2007, Kat shared that she weighed 200 lbs. 


I was reminded, over the weekend, that this photo (see time stamp) was taken exactly 10 years ago, on my college graduation day. A few things about that realization shocked me. 1. I can't believe I graduated from college 10 years ago, that was a blink of an eye, and I'm getting old. 2. The journey it took to get where I am today, it was an every day fight during the weight-loss with my toughest opponents: my mind, my insecurities, and my desire to give in to temptation. 3. Never to be embarrassed at where you started from. Lots of people tell me they are ashamed of their photos prior to weight loss. I am thankful for the reminder; because, it always encourages me to remember moderation in my every day life, prioritize my health above all, continually look forward, and put my running shoes on to make sure this version of me stays a memory. #weightloss

The soon-to-be-bride then started focusing on her health by eliminating alcohol and pursuing a stricter diet, choosing healthy food over portion control. She then lost almost 70 lbs.

Kat explained, “You have to address one issue at a time. So I dealt with my appetite and nutrition first before allowing my body to work out hard. I’ve learned that you do not have to make your body go through a lot of changes at the same time. One issue at a time will do.”

“It’s all about listening to your body. If you don’t listen to your body, and if you are addressing many issues at the same time, it is going to be too many changes for your body. You have to moderate the changes,” she added. 


Wave-ing goodbye to the epic weekend. 🌊 📸@sheilacatilo
