A few days ago I posted a Tweet about how I feel like Johnny Depp and retarded Leonardo DiCaprio’s mom in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape every time I watch track and field events at the Olympics.
Little did I know, the obese couch-ridden mother (played by Darlene Cates) from Gilbert Grape who died after trying to go up the stairs, recently lost 245 pounds. She still weights 331 pounds but is looking to shed more pounds after overcoming diabetes, undergoing four surgeries, and having a near-death experience at the hospital. Good for her! I’ve revised my track joke to:
“Every time I watch track and field events I feel like the mom in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape before she lost the weight.” Still pretty bad (unfunny and offensive) huh.
Regardless, if she can lose weight after all these years, you really have no excuse. Quit with the diets and cleanses and starvation. I’ll tell you how to lose weight… eat less food than you normally would, then figure out what sport you like and do it as much as you can.
