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.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
