Actress Rosie O’Donnell has lost fifty pounds, and she looks great! On Thursday, O’Donnel proudly showed off a before-and-after picture of her major weight loss.
O’Donnell, 52, posted a photo collage to her Twitter account of before-and-after pictures side by side of her face up close and personal, and 50 pounds lighter. The caption read, “Almost 50 lbs off – I can see it now.” The weight loss is completely noticeable, and her face has slimmed-down a lot. She’s also rocking a new shoulder-length brown hairstyle.
According to Us Weekly, O’Donnell revealed in February that she had lost 40 pounds through weight-loss surgery last summer. At the annual Go Red For Women Luncheon event sponsored by the American heart Association, she was the keynote speaker and she explained to the crowd how she’d gone from 230 pounds to 190.
During her speech, Rosie admitted, “I did what many women do, and I did not take care of myself. And that’s why I’m here, to try to get women to know you’re worth it, take care of yourself and know the symptoms.”
Some health scares in the past few years caused her to reevaluate her weight. She suffered a heart attack in August 2012, and has stuck by her wife, Michelle Rounds' side, who’s been dealing with Desmoid tumors.
O’Donnell understands that she needs to keep the weight off in order to live a happy and healthy lifestyle, and this picture is proof that she’s working hard and doing what’s best for herself.
