Chrissy Metz Talks about Her Weight Journey: “I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months”

chrissy-metz-weight - Chrissy Metz Talks about Her Weight Journey: "I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months"

The full story from People:

“I’d be getting maybe two auditions a year, and I’d always see the same small group of girls,” says Metz, who was a size 12 when she was first scouted but dropped 50 lbs. at the recommendation of her then-manager before moving to L.A.

With work slow, she took a job as a junior commercial casting agent but says having to backburner her own dreams “was like watching your boyfriend take another woman out every day.”

Depressed and “eating my feelings,” Metz gained more than 100 lbs. before a panic attack on her 30th birthday sent her to the hospital and snapped her back into reality.

She set about overhauling herself physically and emotionally, including following doctor’s orders to lose weight. “I was so gung ho, I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months,” she says. “All I did was eat a 2,000-calorie diet and walk 20 minutes a day.”

As the numbers on the scale fell, Metz regained confidence. Then she landed the recurring part on American Horror Story: Freak Show that would kick-start her career.

Playing a “fat lady” meant stepping into a fat suit. “It was sobering,” she says. “I thought, ‘What if I become that heavy and can’t walk around or get stuck in the doorframe? I was like, ‘I don’t want this for me.’ ”

The role also lead her to This Is Us. Baring her body and stepping on a scale within the first few minutes of the show’s pilot this past September, Metz — through her character — Kate instantly instantly became a fan-favorite.

“You don’t realize that somebody who’s average or even very fit could relate to someone who’s overweight,” she says of the feedback she’s gotten, “but it’s not about our size — it’s how we look at ourselves and how we feel about ourselves.”

As for what’s next, while Metz says she’s taking steps to lose weight, she does make it clear that the stops along her weight loss journey are “not for anybody but myself. … I want to have a fit, healthy body and not have to be put in a box. I don’t want to be limited by anything.”

Gigi Hadid: “The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure”

gigi-hadid-weight-loss - Gigi Hadid: "The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure"

Back in 2015, Gigi Hadid walked the Tommy Hilfiger in a bikini and she immediately received a lot of criticism for not looking skinny enough. Gigi then wrote a lengthy post in which she shared that she was comfortable with her figure and that she would never change it – her words in 2015 (read it all here):

Yes, I have b~~~~. I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. I’m fitting into sample sizes. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body, they don’t make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don’t change the designers opinions of me.

This week, Gigi, who previously said that she lost weight due to a thyroid medical condition, recalled the feedback she got in 2015 for her message, saying:

‘The response was crazy. From Victoria’s Secret Angels to my friends who are considered plus size, everyone texted me and said they appreciated me saying something. The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure.’

Yes, I have b~~~~, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. I’m fitting into the sample sizes. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body, they don’t make me want to say no to designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don’t change the designers opinions of me. If they want me in their show, I’m in it; if they don’t, I’m not. That’s just how it is and how it will be.

Chrissy Metz on Losing Weight for Her Show: “I’m not selling out the big girls”

chrissy-metz-weight-2-1 - Chrissy Metz on Losing Weight for Her Show: "I’m not selling out the big girls"

The topic of ‘Chrissy Metz weight’ has been trending recently, after the first hit episodes of the new NBC show This Is Us. The 37 year-old actress plays Kate on the show, who is about lose weight as a result of gastric bypass surgery – and the actress is excited for the major journey she’s about to embark on. Chrissy recently opened up about her weight, body image and losing weight for her role:

On losing weight for the show:

It’s a different kind of motivation, so I was excited about it. In our contract, it did state that that would be a part of it, to lose the weight in the trajectory of the character as she comes to find herself. That was a win-win for me. Because it’s one thing to try to do it on your own. But as human beings, it’s an ego thing: We’re more likely to do something for someone else.

On the fact that losing weight doesn’t mean that she is betraying the bigger girls:

I, as Chrissy, want to do things that mentally, emotionally and physically make me the best that I can be. That’s the intention for our writers and the development of the character. I just have to be very clear. Whether or not I lose weight or stay the same, it’s purely a choice of mine for health. Not because I think that plus size, curvy, voluptuous, big bodies aren’t attractive — because I think they’re awesome and sexy. So I’ll just have to make sure that’s known, because I’m not selling out the big girls. I don’t do that. That’s not me.

On how at her size, weight is always the focus:

You know, it’s really hard for me because I have friends who are like, Why do we have to talk about the weight? Why can’t you just be an actor who happens to be overweight in the show and you’re moving on with your life? and I completely understand that. Eventually I know that that will be the case — there will just be plus-size actors and it’s not going to be talked about. However, this role is written about a woman who — it was loosely based on Dan Fogelman’s sister — who struggled with her weight and her self-worth. And a lot of people do, and I have myself, as a human being. So this is a story that needs to be told because there are people who find their self-worth in the number on the scale.
