In March 2013, 23-year-old mother of two Katie Summers weighed 215 pounds. She constantly felt tired, self-conscious, and depressed. After her daughter, Gracie, caught her crying one day, Summers realized she had to make a change.
The first change she made was to her diet, switching to whole foods and eating five to six times a day. She spent 30 to 45 minutes on the elliptical and total-body weightlifting circuits three to four days a week.

Over time, not only did she get in shape, but she also found confidence in herself and learned to be happy with who she is. By December 2014, she had lost 90 pounds, and decided to sign up for a fitness competition to push herself even further. Summers finished in the top five and she plans to compete again soon.
