A GYM girl who weighs more than 200 pounds has revealed she is the happiest and heaviest she has ever been.
The fitness fanatic isn't fazed by the hate that critics hurl at her.
Gymgoer Katie Johnson (@happyfitkatie) is the latest influencer that has embraced the trend of sharing their height and weight.
She's unashamed of how she looks despite the "atrocious" comments that she receives online.
Katie revealed that she’s five feet seven inches tall and weighs 240 pounds.
She captioned the clip: “Heaviest and happiest [that] I’ve ever been.”
The fitness coach was seen showing off her muscles in the video that was taken in the gym.
She revealed that she's been weightlifting for years and believes her weight comes from her muscle.
Viewers rushed to praise Katie for “normalizing” her weight.
One said: “Thank you cause (sic) I’m 215 and everyone makes me feel huge.”
