Katie, a popular American reality TV star, entrepreneur, and producer, gained fame through her appearance on the reality show “Vanderpump Rules.” Apart from her acting, she’s into the music scene, managing music and organizing tasks at BlackBoxTV.
While Katie’s appearance didn’t change much in previous seasons, something remarkable happened in season 8 – she noticeably lost a significant amount of weight.
What motivated Katie to make this transformation? How did she achieve such weight loss?
Katie Maloney’s Weight Loss Journey
Maloney started her weight loss journey after she felt some changes in her body. Talking to one of her followers on Instagram, Katie said, “I thought it was a thyroid thing, so I was going to the doctor and getting blood work done.”
She added, “I think it’s really important to also check up on your health because even though it wasn’t a thyroid thing, I did discover that my glucose levels were pretty high and that could’ve led to some maybe pre-diabetic problems.”
How did Katie Maloney Lose Weight?
Maloney’s way of losing weight has surprised quite a lot of people. However, it is not really that unbelievable. In fact, what Katie has done is the most useful strategy to lose weight. She not only not followed a strict diet plan blindly, but also ate her favorite food.
Talking about her losing weight, Katie said, “I don’t do any dieting.” She continued, “I understand how to eat for my metabolism, especially with being insulin resistant or insulin-sensitive. Now I just have a great understanding of nutrition and what kinds of food I should and shouldn’t be eating.”
Katie said that now she has a great wealth of knowledge about food. Along with keeping the knowledge of healthy food, Maloney has also paid great attention to her exercise routine, which she follows on a daily basis. Her healthy habits made a difference and helped her in losing weight.
Before & After Weight Loss
Katie achieved an impressive accomplishment by taking control of her health. Through the combination of maintaining a balanced diet and engaging in daily exercise, she successfully shed 20 pounds of weight.
Before, Katie used to weigh 160 pounds, but now her hard work and dedication have paid off, and she weighs a healthier 140 pounds.
It’s incredible how her commitment to making positive lifestyle changes led to such a noticeable transformation in her weight and overall well-being.
While talking to People, Katie admitted that she has faced body-shammers throughout her life. Katie said that dealing with body shamers all time made her a very annoying and “unlovable” person. Talking about her experience, Maloney said,
“Imagine finally finding the courage and strength to finally love yourself enough to stand up for yourself to then be ridiculed and torn down again. It took me three years. I was a very unhappy person. I took it out on everyone including myself. I was unlovable.”
She further said, “For the last three years I let my body become a topic of conversation. I say ‘let’ because I didn’t have the courage or self-love to argue it. For three years. I’m not perfect. I know who I am. But I’m not a weak bit*h. I vowed to make changes. And I did.”
Maloney is now way happier with her new physique than before. She not only promotes a healthy life but also supports accepting one’s body as it is. Talking about her health, Katie said, “I love life, food, and wine. I want to live my life to the fullest. I don’t want to look back at my life at 75 and say, ‘I wish I had not followed strict diet’”.
