High school teacher Katie says she embraced meal prep and a healthier lifestyle after suffering from chronic IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and back problems.
She says: ‘Embracing health and fitness has made such a difference in my life. Not only are my IBS and injuries under control, but I have completely transformed my mind and body.
‘I no longer define my health or my worth by a number on the scale, I don’t count calories, and I don’t allow my weight or dress size to dictate how I feel about myself.
‘I’m the heaviest I’ve been in my life, but I’m proud of my achievements, secure with my appearance and I feel comfortable and confident in my own skin.’
Katie shares her weekly meal prep ideas on her Instagram page, inspiring more than 140k followers with her journey.
‘I love how belonging to this community enables me to share my fitness journey, especially my body transformations and weekly meal preps, because it illustrates that there has been nothing extreme about my approach,’ she says.
'I believe all women are capable of achieving their goals and taking control of their health and fitness simply by incorporating sustainable strategies into their routine, as I have. I will never claim that my approach is the authority on health, or the only way of doing things.
'Rather, my intention behind sharing details about my health and fitness is that it may provide you with ideas to implement tools of your own.’
