A newly slimmed Kevin Smith has a lot to celebrate!!

Kevin Smith, the 48-year-old comedian, and director of “Clerks” and other movies is celebrating his 51-pound weight loss after suffering a fatal heart attack in February.

Six months ago, Smith suffered a deadly heart attack that nearly killed him. After canceling an event, he was checked by the doctors who caught a potentially fatal blockage in his artery.

He was instructed by the doctor to lose quite a lot of weight if he wanted to stand a better chance against further complications. Well, it’s been six months and Smith proudly announced his new weight of 205 pounds, down from 256.

Kevin Smith shared a picture of himself looking healthier than ever to Instagram on Sunday.

When I went to my Doctor a week [after the heart attack], she told me “The best thing you can do for yourself now is to lose 50 pounds.” Half a year later, I can report that I followed Doctor’s orders: I started at 256 and now I weigh 205,” Smith captioned the jaw-dropping photo.

Alongside a picture of Smith looking healthier and thinner in a “Fat Man” T-shirt, he added, “This is the lightest I’ve been since high school!”

My hope now is I can slowly lose another 10 with #weightwatchers and get down to my birth weight of 195.”

The Mallrats director also thanked his daughter and doctor as well as Weight Watchers for which he became an ambassador in April.

Smith has now set his sights on a new goal, to lose another 10 pounds and settle at 195.

Check out Smith’s Instagram post below:

This @weightwatchers Ambassador is thrilled to announce that I’VE LOST 51 POUNDS! Six months ago from right now, I was in the hospital recovering from a heart attack I’d had the night before. When I went to my Doctor a week later, she told me “The best thing you can do for yourself now is to lose 50 pounds.” Half a year later, I can report that I followed Doctor’s orders: I started at 256 and now I weigh 205. This is the lightest I’ve been since high school! My hope now is I can slowly lose another 10 with #weightwatchers and get down to my birth weight of 195! But for now, I’m ecstatic to have reached this chunky milestone! I wanna thank #pennjillette for his book #presto, @raycronise for getting me started with his potato famine, and the good folks at #weightwatchers for their app-based program that made it easy to keep track of and control my eating! And I also wanna thank my kid @harleyquinnsmith – the little vegan astronaut who explored this meatless/milkless galaxy ahead of me, leading by example. Since I never wanted to see the inside of a hospital ever again, I simply copied the Kid. So this wasn’t a diet: these results came from a total lifestyle change of eating solely plant-based foods (which is tough because I hate vegetables). But mostly, I wanna thank all of you as well – for the kind and encouraging words along the way. Never underestimate the power of positive feedback: you folks telling me I looked better or healthier helped me stick with it. An encouraging word can really make a difference in someone’s life and your compliments kept me going! And just look where I went! #KevinSmith #WWambassador #WWFreestyle #WWFamily #WWBros #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #WWCommunity #ad *People following the Weight Watchers program can expect to lose 1-2lbs per week.
