Billy Gardell Reveals His Main Motivation For Losing Over 150 Pounds
Billy Gardell is looking and feeling good!
The Bob Hearts Abishola star was seen waving to the cameras while out running errands around Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (April 19).
Just recently, Billy has been opening up more about his weight loss and health journey, revealing that he underwent gastric bypass surgery as a preventive measure for high-risk COVID-19.
Billy recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight, where he shared just how much he weighs now, and he also shared what his main motivation for losing the weight and putting his health first was – his son.
“When you hit 50, you start doing that dad math, like, ‘If I can live 25 more years, and he’ll be 40,’ … You know what I mean? So I want to be here for him,” he shared.
Billy added that he’s “been an example in a lot of good ways for my child, but I feel like I wasn’t a good example of health for him. And so I want him to see that. It doesn’t matter what age you are, if you are willing to do something a day at a time, you can change anything.”
In addition to Bobs Heart Abishola, fans of Billy might recognize the actor from Mike & Molly, and his recurring role on Young Sheldon.
