Comic Horatio Sanz Loses Almost 100 Pounds

Reality Check: SNL's Horatio Sanz Feared Death and the Scale

There's nothing humorous about obesity, something that Saturday Night Live alumnus Horatio Sanz came to realize when he committed to getting healthy and losing weight. The comedian has dropped about 100 pounds and briefly discussed his weight loss with New York Magazine, describing how serious his weight had become: "I never weighed myself when I was at my fattest, because I was scared I might die."

To see what he looks like after losing roughly 100 pounds,


Horatio's awareness that his life was at risk caused him to start exercising and eating better. While he's dropped a lot of weight, he's maintained his sense of humor and said, "I've been trying to come up with a joke about how I've lost weight and I was going to say, 'I stopped putting nuts in my sundaes.'" It's clear from Horatio's big smile that he's proud of his lifestyle changes that allow him to enjoy life, rather than live in fear.

Woo! Good for him, he is a very funny man and should be able to live out his life and now he has the chance. Very inspirational. I never would have recognized him though! He looks very handsome.

fashion4ward: he might be coming back to SNL! If Bill Richardson gets a post in the Obama administration (He's the front runner for Commerce Secretary) Horatio Sanz has been offered the role on SNL!

margokhal, good luck. I lost 75# about 4 years ago and have maintained my loss. Limiting food intake is definitely a great place to start but I will encourage you to MAKE time to exercise! Sometimes it's hard to fit it in but you've got to take time to take care of yourself. You're worth it!

Holy toledo! I was wondering where he's been...Sanz kinda dropped off the radar after he left SNL. Seeing this just reminds me that I've got to get on losing weight (I have about 100 lbs to drop, too)...but then I really just don't have the time or money right now to exercise, only to limit food intake. I guess that's a start, right?

"I stopped putting nuts in my sundaes." Sounds very similar to what most women celebs say they do to lose pounds. :oy: :D
