Kate Writer, 25, has shed more than 115 pounds in just nine months and she did it all without surgery.

She had always been a “bigger girl,” but Kate says she really began to put on weight after meeting her fiancé, Nick Jones. The couch-bound lovebirds shared a mutual love of fast food, chocolates and McDonalds, and slowly, Kate ballooned.

“We’d eat takeaways most nights and before I knew it, my weight had shot up,” she said.

After experiencing painful swollen ankles and crippling pain from standing at work all day, Kate decided she’d had enough. It was time to change her lifestyle.

“By 21, I was 120 kg (265 pounds) and wearing a size 20. I was so overweight it hurt to stand up at work and that’s when I realized I had a problem,” she said.

Determined to drop the weight, Kate completely transformed her diet and began an intense exercise regime that included Crossfit.

The 25-year-old is now a fitness fanatic, training for up to two hours a day and recently qualifying as a PE teacher.

In addition, her Instagram account @dedikated_lifestyle has garnered more than 60,000 followers, who turn to Kate for inspiration and motivation.

“I want to help inspire other women to change their ways,” she says. “And believe me, if I can do it, anyone can.”
