Katie's Journey Begins
February 2018 was the start of Katie taking her journey seriously. "I was at a birthday party, saw myself in photos and was completely mortified and unhappy with what I saw," Katie shared.
That April, she began going through a harder time personally than she could ever imagine, when her marriage ended and she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. "The emotional turmoil was more than I thought I was capable of handling but I feel like focusing on my healthy journey is what saved me. I zeroed in my focus on becoming the best version of myself by paying attention to what I was putting into my body for the first time and doing everything I could to get my health under control," Katie said.
