    This week’s Ponte Vedran is Katie Tartt.  Mother of three, crafting diva and fitness believer. Katie came to mind recently when I ran into her at Trader Joes. As you’ll read below, she lost 60 lbs a few years ago. She has gone through a complete body transformation. Envision one of those side by side fitness ads where you think those aren’t the same people. And there you have it. It’s a double take situation, and must have been a tough and rewarding journey. Please meet Katie Tartt.

    Something most people don’t know about you: When I was 17 waitressing in a restaurant I performed CPR on 70 year old William Husbands. I broke three of his ribs and saved his life. It was one of my proudest moments of my life.

I am a mother of three kids & wife to a wonderful man— and I turn forty this year.
