John Goodman, the famous American star is returning back to his show The Conners in upcoming days. Fans are very excited to see him back on the show and assuming that how the spin-off show will be without Roseanne Barr, will the show be able to do on its own. However, the center of attraction will be John’s massive weight loss.
John Goodman has been battling with gigantic size and enormous weight for years. Not only this, he has been open about his addiction to alcohol which leads to unhealthy lifestyle. Sources have already revealed that later this month on ABC, John Goodman would flaunt his brand new look when The Conners premieres.
John Goodman, back in the month of February this year, told AARP that a few years ago, when he wrapped up Roseanne, he was not in a good place.
John very honestly said that, he was probably not in a good shape when he left Roseanne. He didn’t really care about it and he knew that it was his fault only. It was his terrible character that he had lot of resentment. He had always wanted more. He felt some kind of emptiness inside him which is still there. But what exactly now is inside him, he really doesn’t know.
He said, he thought that it was all probably due to the fear of not being good enough, not being worthy for what he was getting. He sometimes thought that it all might be a survivor’s guilt for being grown up poor. But then after 10 years, he was sober, started to look back with affection and now felt that how lucky he had been.
But, how does a person change his life at that point where he is a part of his former self? Well, John the same year, revealed that he lost more than 100 pounds just by controlling what he used to eat and the amount of it.
Tons of tweets flooded the twitter after the premiere. Here is one of them –

Then back in 2016, it was clear with the photos that he was losing his massive weight which he didn’t even expected that it would be this easy and would stay off.
