Kevin Smith is 85 pounds lighter than he was seven years ago, and he took to Twitter to show off his impressive weight loss.
The "Clerks" and "Mallrats" director shared a striking before-and-after image of him and his daughter, Harley Quinn, in 2008 and earlier this month, on Saturday.
"Left: me & my kid in 2008. Right: 2 weeks ago, 85 pounds later. I shan't wear pants and will never abort the shorts," he captioned the photo.
Smith, 44, was inspired to slim down after a 2010 incident in which he said he was booted from a Southwest Airlines flight for being too large for one seat.
One year later, he had already dropped 65 pounds.
“I feel mixed feelings about losing the weight. I sympathize far more with heavier people than I ever will with thin [ones]. I’ll never be thin,” Smith told Joy Behar in 2011.
In February, Smith told Men's Health that abstaining from sugary drinks was a key factor in his fitness journey.
He added, "My 'working out' is I've got this hill outside my house — like, right outside my house, you walk out the door and — boom! — you’re on this hill, so I’ll take my dogs out and see who starts breathing heavy and sweating first."
