Last year Katie shared a side-by-side before-and-after pictures to display her weight loss.
In the first photo, the star is sporting a more fuller figure as she poses in a bra and knickers, with her face hidden by her phone.
But in the second snap, Katie can be seen showing off her abs and toned body in a navy crop top and leggings, as she beams from ear to ear.
Captioning the post, she wrote: "There isn't a day that goes by that I'm not asked 'how did you do it' 'what's your secret' 'is it all nutrition' 'what workouts do you do and how often!'

"And to share all the different lifestyle hacks that helped me not only achieve this in a realistic time frame, but maintain it!
