It was in 1992 that Hollywood star Katherine Heigl started her acting journey with the film That Night. She later had roles in the films Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, King of the Hill, and Bride of Chucky. On television, her first notable role was as Isabel Evans in Roswell. A few years later, she made her breakthrough as Dr. Izzie Stevens in the series Grey’s Anatomy. She was part of the show’s main cast from seasons 1-6.
This also paved the way for her to establish a successful film career. During this period, she rose to fame for her roles in the romantic comedies Knocked Up, 27 Dresses, and The Ugly Truth. In the 2010s, she starred in the movies Life as We Know It, New Year’s Eve, Jackie & Ryan, and Home Sweet Hell. Her latest film role is 2017’s Unforgettable. She also had a short stint in the series State of Affairs with her playing the lead. This year, she joined the main cast of Suits as Samantha Wheeler.
In 2016, Katherine gave birth to her first biological child. As expected, her body experienced dramatic changes. She gained weight and it took her some time to regain her old figure. In an Instagram post, she shared the fitness regimen that helped her lose weight and achieve a toned figure once again. She said: “Anyway, I have a beach vacation coming up, a new job I start filming in April and my deep desire to feel fit, strong and sexy propelling me forward the last two months to finally loose the last of my baby weight and do a deep dive search for the ab muscles I knew were buried under that belly somewhere!”
She talked about the BBG challenge and the app called Sweats, which featured various BBG programs that helped her exercise anytime, anywhere. She went on to say: “I won’t lie, the workouts are real ass kickers but the progress I’ve made in only 5 short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going! I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs and wasn’t forced by work to snap back into shape but it is time to make the strength, fitness and overall health of my body a priority.”
