Katrina has struggled with her weight for most of her life. She struggled her way up to just over 400 pounds and, even when she found Keto, she continued to struggle.
Katrina followed a low carb way of life for years, but not wholeheartedly. She gave herself "permissions." If it was a holiday, she ate whatever she wanted. If it was a special occasion, she ate whatever she wanted. If it was a vacation, she ate whatever she wanted. If it was a weekend- you guessed it- she ate whatever she wanted. She regularly cycled in-and-out of ketosis, and she struggled.
Everything changed for her on Labor Day weekend of 2014, when she realized she had a sugar addiction and decided to give up all artificial sweeteners. Moderation does not work for an addict, and Katrina knew she was addicted. Once she cut out sweeteners, she noticed that her hunger and cravings were suddenly gone, and the 40 pounds she shed felt like they came off by magic.
When she plateaued in early 2015, she deepened her resolve by adding exercise to her plan. She joined a gym and committed to stop cheating. That made all the difference. Katrina experienced steady and consistent losses during the next year. She worked out, lifting heavy weights with minimal cardio, 5 days a week without fail.
As the weight came off, Katrina discovered she has a little known, generally misdiagnosed, and progressively debilitating fat disorder called lipedema, which affects as many as 17 million women in the USA alone. While little is known about lipedema, it is a condition believed to afflict those with the disorder with a bodily resistance to diet and exercise. “I’m glad I didn’t know about lipedema when I started, because I might have given up and not even tried,” she stated. To date she has lost almost 200 pounds and is getting close to being at goal.
Katrina lives in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband and two teenage daughters. She works from home as a travel agent, specializing in Disney destinations, cruises, and all inclusive resorts, and one day a week she teaches Latin to high school homeschoolers. She is also teaching online Keto classes for those with lipedema through the Lipedema Project.
Now Katrina is taking the next step in her journey: helping others to gain control of their health, way of eating, and weight. When you are ready to take that step, Katrina can help you with: discovering your goals and what’s holding you back; getting that inner voice in your head to align with your goals; how to adjust/tweak your eating to fit a ketogenic lifestyle; tracking (or not); food triggers and emotional eating; working out (or not); making this a lifestyle you stick with permanently.
Katrina cannot wait to be a part of YOUR journey!
