Many of us experience rough patches in life, but the goal is to turn those into fuel for self-improvement. That’s what Kaity Krontz did. For so long she used food as a coping mechanism to get through the rough patches of her life. Not anymore. Check out how Kaity Krontz took back control of her life with an extreme weight loss and lifestyle 180.
For a long time, Kaity was in a relationship with a man that wasn’t altogether healthy. They relied on each other for absolutely everything, and as a result neither participated in outside social circles. Their eating choices weren’t particularly healthy either. Then, to make matters she lost her father, grandfather, and grandmother all in the span of a year. Those tragic events amped up her unhealthy eating habits, and she used food to cope even more often. Fatty, unhealthy foods became her norm. She regularly ate macaroni and cheese and pizza. Her weight increased considerably during those difficult months.
Things went from bad to worse! Kaity discovered her boyfriend cheated on her when she lost her grandmother! That’s when she realized she was unhappy with her life. She didn’t love herself and wanted to figure out how to change. When she looked in the mirror, she didn’t like how overweight and alone she was. So she took matters into her own hands.
She stumbled upon Title Boxing Club, and because she was so angry about life in general, she figured taking out her frustrations on a punching bag would be a great way to cope. So she signed up for classes. Things were a bit rough in the beginning. She felt out of place and uncomfortable at the club, but persevered and finished her first class. The weeks after were tough but in a good way. She felt she got great workouts, but also realized if she wanted to see results, she needed to make changes to her diet, too. She adopted a healthy meal plan, eliminating all of the processed, unhealthy foods. She began stocking up on healthier fruits, veggies, and proteins at the grocery store and learned how to cook. Now, cooking is one of the things she most enjoys.
In the following months her new, healthier lifestyle change, Kaity experienced an extreme weight loss. She lost fat and gained muscle. She experienced more energy than ever before! She felt more confident in herself and was amazed her hard work produced meaningful results. Over the course of the rest of the year, she kept up her hard work and lost over 123 pounds! Now, instead of feeling uncomfortable and alone, she’s living life to the fullest and enjoying the things she loves. She’s more independent and tackling things she never thought she would. She’s even considering becoming a trainer to help others achieve their goals.
