Chrissy Metz Weight-Loss Inspiration

If You've Dealt With Setbacks Trying to Lose Weight, Chrissy Metz Has an Important Message For You

Chrissy Metz has been anything but shy about her weight-loss journey, and now she's opening up about how her struggle on This Is Us has motivated her in her real life. Chrissy was recently stopped by a TMZ reporter where she was asked about her character Kate's "failure" to lose weight, and she responded with some motivational advice for anyone who's had setbacks while trying to shed pounds.

"I don't think that she's [Kate's] failed at losing weight," Chrissy said. "I just think that she has to make it more of a concerted effort and that's what she's trying to do."

Her struggle on the hit show has been well documented, most recently at weight-loss immersion camp, but Chrissy's message to the viewers and anyone trying to lose weight is important: not shedding pounds does not mean you've failed, it's all part of the journey.


She said that her character's storyline is not meant to discourage anyone trying to lose weight, in fact, it's the opposite. "I think it inspires people because we're all on different journeys and we all progress differently," Chrissy said. "So, when we're all in it together, it's a little more inspiring in that way."
