Katie Maloney Schwartz is no stranger to body shaming due to society’s obsession with weight. Katie has been criticized by both fans and cast members who cruelly taunted her about her curves. Who can forget when Lala and James taunted her for not being ‘beach body ready’, James dissing her shorts at Pride, while Kevin Lee actually body-shamed her while she was working at an LVP event!
Kaie is a beautiful girl and seems to be comfortable in her own skin, as her friends and husband have constantly defended her. Even with a strong support group, it’s no easy to be curvy in the bubble of WeHo that is made up of stick-thin wannabe actresses and pop stars. Despite Katie’s confidence, she seems to be motivated to lose some weight as she recently revealed she has lost more than 20 lbs!
The 33-year-old VPR star answered a fan’s question, who noted that she looked like she lost weight. Katie replied stating: “I have — and thank you. I’ve lost a little over 20 pounds. It feels good.”
Katie went on to explain that she originally thought “it was a thyroid thing, so I was going to the doctor and getting blood work done” she explained. “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.”
“So from there, I met a really great nutritionist who helped me understand how to eat for my metabolism, especially with being insulin resistant or insulin-sensitive. So now I just have a great understanding on nutrition and what kinds of food I should and shouldn’t be eating. I’m not dieting. But I just have a wealth of knowledge on what kind of foods to be eating.”
The revelation came during an Instagram Q&A which showed a very casual Katie; however, you could definitely see her weight loss in her face:
You could also see the results in her WWHL appearance with hubby Tom Schwartz earlier this month:
I’m glad to see that Katie is taking a healthy approach to weight loss and is focusing on health and not a number. Looking forward to seeing this healthy and happy Katie at the VPR reunion where we can get more details on her journey!
