Kevin Smith aka Silent Bob, looks like he has had WLS. His story is he had a mild heart attack in March, joined WW and has lost near 100 pounds in six months. I really think he secretly had WLS, especially looking at his face. It just has that sunken look to it, just like Al Roker.

I know it’s his own business and we each treasure our own secrecy, but if he did have WLS it would really open the doors of discussion and hopefully acceptance from the skinnies! Plus if he did and WW is taking credit, oh boy, that’s not cool.

Thoughts?

He's pretty famous, globally, he's not a youtube star....

He didn't have WLS, he became vegan and then later joined WW.

Yes but I am old and I don't watch those kind of movies ( I just googled him)

well done to him for losing the weight. Not everyone that has a big weight loss has had surgery. The test for him as it is for all of us is not so much in the losing, it's in the maintaining

I have not heard of him before now. How he lost his weight is his own business, if he has WLS I get that he chooses not to discuss it, I had an ESG last week and so far only one friend knows about it.

Yes it is his own business unless he is representing some other weight loss programme. If he is a WW advocate and gets paid to promote them then full honesty would be required otherwise he is misrepresenting the programme and other people would be enticed to spend the money and not understand why they werent able to achieve the same level of success

I lost 60 pounds from May 10 to September 24th, before my surgery. So I don't think there's any reason he couldn't have lost that weight if he wasn't working very hard and very committed to his goal. I think the hard work for him will be keeping it off. But I wish him the best.

I love Kevin Smith! I think he looks great. I’m not sure if he had surgery or not. It’s not unusual to keep it private. I keep mine private besides from close friends and family.

I love the Jay and Silent Bob movies. Kevin Smith is amazing. He is huge in comic books and is actually a really smart man. It's horrible that Jay got lost in drugs, but that's life.

It is possible to lose that kind of weight with dedication.. I know my husband had a heart attack last year and in 4 months lost about 40 pounds or more. He could have lost more, but instead of eating right, he went back to unhealthy eating and gained the 40 and more.

He's big in fat-accommodation/ableism circles because a budget airline, South West, kicked him off for not "fitting in his seat" a personal horror of mine since I travel for work.
Clerks was his big cult movie.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
