Kathy Bates the veteran actress from “American Horror Story” and “Misery” is starting 2019 60 pounds lighter. What’s her weight loss Secret? Well it doesn’t involve following the
latest fad diet. It’s something much more elemental.
The 70 year old actress told US Weekly she lost the weight with “mindfulness, just knowing
when to push my plate away.”Bates explained, “My niece told me this little secret — I guess it’s no secret, it’s a biological thing — that at some point when you’re eating, you have this
involuntary sigh and that’s really your brain and your stomach communicating that you’ve had
enough. The trick is to pay attention to that and push your plate away.” According to the article this ability took some patience because it took a few years to develop. Also, she eliminated junk food and soda.
I’m feeling great. I’ve lost a lot of weight,” Kathy told People. Kathy explained how after her
breast cancer went into remission, she developed lymphedema. Lymphedema is swelling that’s
caused by a collection of too much lymph fluid. It usually happens in your arms and legs. This
swelling may cause pain and limit movement. She feels the weight loss has helped with this
symptom. “I have never been in such good health,” she told US Weekly. “I just had a physical.
I’m doing great … I feel like a completely different person. I can move, I can walk. I just wish I had done it years ago.”
What an inspiration, and proves you’re never too old to lose weight and start a whole new chapter. We can’t wait to see Kathy in more amazing roles.
