Kathy Bates is thin. In fact, she’s so thin she’s unrecognizable. The American Horror Story and Misery actress appeared on Dr. Phil’s podcast to discuss Lymphedema, but people couldn’t stop talking about her amazing weight-loss transformation. Not only has she lost weight, but she’s dyed and cut her hair into a midnight-raven, pixie and the results are simply stunning. At 70-years-old, it’s safe to say that Kathy Bates looks amazing and according to her, she’s never felt better.
During the podcast, she discussed battling cancer twice (she’s beaten both breast and ovarian cancer) and discussed Lymphedema. She also spoke a bit about her career.
She shared a response and thank you note to Dr. Phil for having her on his podcast.

Kathy also spoke about being determined to succeed and using that determination to overcome temptation and practice self-control. She explained that this isn’t a race or competition and you don’t need to push yourself into losing weight quickly, but rather by practicing mindfulness you will gain the tools that can help you succeed.

“It took a few years. I would say you have to be really patient … I don’t like the word willpower, but I like the word determination.”
