She has lost half her body weight, and now Kaitlyn Smith is showing off her new, slimmed-down figure on “The Real.”
The 20-year-old originally shared her weight-loss journey in People magazine’s “Half Their Size” issue, and later blogged for their website.
Smith had the option to undergo weight-loss surgery, but instead lost the pounds the old fashioned way, through diet and exercise.
She told “The Real” co-hosts, “When I hit 16, I went and met with a doctor where I live, and he told me that the only way I could lose weight was through gastric bypass… He referred me to a surgeon and I went so confident and happy… Well, I left the appointment sad, depressed and upset because he told me I would never look normal or be normal.”
Boy, was he wrong! Thanks to all of Kaitlyn’s hard work, she’s looking good and feeling healthy.
Smith is also engaged to boyfriend Zach Woods. The pair plans to wed in October.
