While we love the fact that Mike and Molly is pushing the TV envelope by casting two overweight people as the leads, we hate that it’s almost encouraging them to continue living an unhealthy lifestyle. And now it seems like co-star Billy Gardell agrees, and wants to drop some weight.
"I think [CBS] will let us drop some weight if we choose to," said Billy. "I think I am at that place, healthwise. But I don't have any blood or heart problems. I'm 40.I have pushed this long enough."
Billy says that he wants to ease into the weight loss and not rush into anything he can’t sustain.
"I have learned slow is better for me. I have tried every crazy (kind) of diet, and it works for two or three weeks then I snap. Now that I am making a little bit more money, I might get myself a nutritionist, maybe a trainer, and take it a step at a time."
We’re so happy he’s finally decided to take the plunge into weight loss!
