Arnold’s transformation has been under way for some time (photo on the right taken in February), but the results are so dramatic. The True Lies actor used to weigh 287 pounds but embarked on a weight-loss crusade after the birth of his son, Jax, in 2013. He has since lost an eye-popping 89 pounds! That’s right — he lost an entire sixth grader.

“Something inside of me changed. I knew I needed to live as long as I could,” Arnold told People. “Every other time I lost weight and got to my goal, I ended up gaining it all back. This time it’s a lifestyle change, and it’s also for my wife and son.”

He added, “Every day I’m working at it. It can be challenging, and some days I do better than others.”

We support any person’s drive to become healthier and fitter, but we feel as if women get a bit more attention in that field. So we’d like to congratulate Mr. Arnold on dropping 89 pounds at 54 years old (he actually turned 55 only a few days ago!). We hope this transformation will help him keep up with his little boy as well as help him continue making the world a bit more cheerful.

Seriously, he looks great! What do you think of Arnold’s weight loss?
