Rob’s Big Losers: Katie Harbin Wrote a Message on Her Scale

Rob’s Big Loser Katie Harbin is a chaplain and a mom of two. She’s very creative with her at-home workouts, making weights out of water-filled jugs. She also wrote an encouraging message on her scale to remind her not to focus too much on the number.


My name is Katie, and I’m a wife and mother to my 9 yo stepson and 3 yo daughter. I’ve been a chaplain for 8 years and, more specifically, a hospice chaplain for 5 awesome years. My passion is being able to affirm people – personally and professionally- and their worthiness of love and belonging. In the past year, I’ve been working hard to take care of myself to better care for others; however, choosing gym time often means missing out on family time and having to pick up my daughter much later than I’d like. Lately, my physical health has taken a back seat as I try to juggle work and home. This struggle shows in my weight gain and the back and forth of self confidence vs self doubt. My focus now is being healthy spiritually, emotionally, and physically. I would love the opportunity to not only have the tools I need at home but also have the accountability from a team of folks on the same page. I would love to share this journey to better health for my family as well. My husband has diabetes, and I feel being a “big loser” would better and strengthen our family in multiple ways. Thank you for hearing my story! God bless you and your ministry!
