Just like her This Is Us character Kate, Chrissy Metz is hoping to shed off some pounds.
Even though the actress is contractually obligated to lose weight with her character on the NBC dramedy, she wants to get healthy on her own terms. She explained:
“I do want to lose weight… But not because anyone is telling me to do it.”
That’s the best reason!
Metz currently wears size 18 or 20 in pants. When asked about her target weight, she simply revealed she wants “to be proportioned,” continuing:
“I carry a lot of my weight in my stomach. I just want to have ├óΓé¼┬ª not even a number, but to have my body in a different shape.”
Chrissy is so motivated, in fact, she’s down to commit to another show in order get healthier — The Biggest Loser!
“I would love to go on The Biggest Loser, where it’s a concentrated thing. My father is a big guy; he’s had a quadruple bypass surgery, and that’s scary. Those are real things that happen in families with overweight people, and I don’t want that.”
That would make great cross promotion, seeing as This Is Us and The Biggest Loser are two of the biggest shows on NBC right now.
OMG, The Biggest Celebrity Loser? Sign us up!
But no matter how Metz ends up losing the pounds, she’ll be doing it for her.
