Six months after he suffered a nearly fatal heart attack, the legend Kevin Smith is in the best shape of his life!
The 48-year-old recently showed off his slimmer build on social media, saying:
"This @weightwatchers Ambassador is thrilled to announce that I’VE LOST 51 POUNDS! Six months ago from right now, I was in the hospital recovering from a heart attack I’d had the night before. When I went to my Doctor a week later, she told me ‘The best thing you can do for yourself now is to lose 50 pounds.’ Half a year later, I can report that I followed Doctor’s orders: I started at 256 and now I weigh 205."
He went on to thank his fans for encouraging him along the way. Smith did say that his journey isn't over yet. He wants to lose another 10 pounds, and he is using Weight Watchers to do so (he has been using Weight Watchers all along).
Smith credits his daughter as his inspiration for losing weight.
My Two Cents
When the reports came out in February of his heart attack, I was devastated. I have been a fan of Smith's since the 1990s. I was so scared we were going to lose him.
Smith wasn't going to let death take hold of him. He turned things around and is now healthy and in the best shape of his life. I am so happy for him. He is truly inspiring. God bless him!
