KEVIN SMITH: Shows Off HUGE Weight Loss

posted by Jonny Hartwell - 

Kevin Smith started 2018 with a near-fatal heart attack. Now, he’s revealed he has more to celebrate – an impressive 51-pound weight loss. Smith posted a picture on Instagram of himself looking thinner than ever at 205 pounds (down from 256 for those counting). In the caption he shares that after his heart attack the doctor suggested he lose 50 pounds for his health – fast forward six months, he’s now already ahead of that goal.

He attributes his accomplishment to a number of factors - including Weight Watchers, who he is an ambassador for, his daughter Harley Quinn Smith for turning him on to veganism, and magician Penn Jillette for his book “Presto!: How I Made Over 100 Pounds Disappear.”

But more than ALL that? Smith thanks his fans for keeping him going all this time with their words of encouragement. “Never underestimate the power of positive feedback,” he writes. “You folks telling me I looked better and healthier helped me stick with it.”

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. This is the lightest I’ve been since high school! My hope now is I can slowly lose another 10 with #weightwatchers and get down to my birth weight of 195! But for now, I’m ecstatic to have reached this chunky milestone! I wanna thank #pennjillette for his book #presto, @raycronise for getting me started with his potato famine, and the good folks at #weightwatchers for their app-based program that made it easy to keep track of and control my eating! And I also wanna thank my kid @harleyquinnsmith - the little vegan astronaut who explored this meatless/milkless galaxy ahead of me, leading by example. Since I never wanted to see the inside of a hospital ever again, I simply copied the Kid. So this wasn’t a diet: these results came from a total lifestyle change of eating solely plant-based foods (which is tough because I hate vegetables). But mostly, I wanna thank all of you as well - for the kind and encouraging words along the way. Never underestimate the power of positive feedback: you folks telling me I looked better or healthier helped me stick with it. An encouraging word can really make a difference in someone’s life and your compliments kept me going! And just look where I went! #KevinSmith #WWambassador #WWFreestyle #WWFamily #WWBros #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #WWCommunity #ad *People following the Weight Watchers program can expect to lose 1-2lbs per week.
