‘The Biggest Loser’: Katarina’s boyfriend breaks up with her after she embarks on her weight-loss journey
When the eliminated contestants are sent home, they usually struggle with maintaining their diet and intensive workout schedule, but Katarina had a different problem to tackle
When 23-year-old Katarina Bouton joined the cast of ‘The Biggest Loser’ little did she know what lay ahead of her. The Jacksonville native came on the show weighing 293 pounds, with dreams of getting her weight under control and leading a healthy lifestyle.
Her first week on the show was brutal, she often broke down and felt disheartened when she couldn’t train as hard as the other contestants. But over time, she managed to gain confidence and began giving her best each week. Despite all her efforts, she was eliminated in the latest episode. Katarina, who is fondly known as Kat on the show, left weighing only 257 pounds!
When the eliminated contestants are sent home, they usually struggle with maintaining their diet and intensive workout schedule, but our young cardiac nurse had a different problem to tackle. As soon as she got back home, she was greeted with the message of a breakup from her boyfriend of five years. In the “where are they now” segment of the show, which is shown at the end of each episode, we saw Kat break the news of her breakup, and how she struggled for the first two weeks, to come to terms with it.
Thankfully, she didn’t let that get to her, as she bounced back soon, and began going out and living her best life. Kat didn’t allow her personal hardships to get in the way of her dreams, as she continued training and eating well. She currently weighs 233 pounds, and is more confident than ever, and has made it clear that if a man isn’t down to help her better herself then she doesn’t need him in her life. It was extremely heartening to see Kat look and feel so confident and living her best life. We can’t wait to see her extremely inspiring and empowering journey towards a healthier life.
