Anthony Anderson is stunned by his own weightloss. The Kangaroo Jack star sometimes still can’t face the fact that he lost so much weight, over fifty pounds (22.6 kilograms). He did star in the sitcom The Bernie Mac show and because he suffers Type 2 diabetes, he decided it was best to take the weight off.
He started tipping the scales at two hundred and seventy pounds (122.4 kilograms) then suddenly just realized how over weight he actually was. During a recent appearance on America’s The Arsenio Hall Show, he explained,
“I’ve lost 52 pounds… That’s two toddlers… At my heaviest, I was 270 pounds and I’m only 5′ 10” and I never thought that I was fat; I always looked at the mirror and was like, ‘You’re husky…’
“I was always doing things that I didn’t believe fat people were allowed to do – I could do the splits, I could stand on one hand, I could dunk a basketball, I could run three miles at a time without having a heart attack.
“I never saw myself as fat until I started to lose the weight, and when I lost my first 30 pounds, I just happened to see myself on a mirror as I was looking at the reflection of my new self and I was like, ‘I was a fat motherf**ker…’ I had no neck and my eyes looked like they were always closed.”
