Hi, my name is Katie Lolas, a.k.a. Lady Lolas, and welcome to my website. I live in Sydney, Australia, and work as a high school teacher. Lots of people ask me if I’m a trainer, but the answer is no. It’s never been my ambition to make a career out of health and fitness, because I love being a teacher. However, I want to demonstrate how simple changes can improve your life, as they have mine. I have created this website because I love engaging with like-minded women, and if my story, progress and lifestyle inspire and encourage you to achieve your own goals, then I am happy.
After years of suffering from chronic IBS and constantly injuring my back, I decided to adopt a healthier lifestyle. I started my Instagram @lady.lolas as a fitness journal to share with my personal network in order to keep myself accountable. Never could I have imagined that I would soon become part of an incredible, supportive community of women!
I love how belonging to this community enables me to share my fitness journey, especially my body transformations and weekly meal preps, because it illustrates that there has been nothing extreme about my approach. I believe all women are capable of achieving their goals and taking control of their health and fitness simply by incorporating sustainable strategies into their routine, as I have. I will never claim that my approach is the authority on health, or the only way of doing things. Rather, my intention behind sharing details about my health and fitness is that it may provide you with ideas to implement tools of your own. I can’t stress enough that the key to success is finding what works for you!
Embracing health and fitness has made such a difference in my life. Not only are my IBS and injuries under control, but I have completely transformed my mind and body. I no longer define my health or my worth by a number on the scale, I don’t count calories, and I don’t allow my weight or dress size to dictate how I feel about myself. I’m the heaviest I’ve been in my life, but I’m proud of my achievements, secure with my appearance and I feel comfortable and confident in my own skin.
Being active and healthy is now my definition of happiness. My goal is for you to feel the same.
