A health scare forced Tom Arnold to take control of his life — and shed 75 pounds.
The “Roseanne” alum told Us Weekly Thursday he suffered a mini-stroke in January and realized he needed to take better care of himself.
“I was giving the kids a bath and turned around to count to 10 when suddenly my vision in my right eye went black as if there was a curtain coming down over my eye,” he said.
“I had a mini-stroke. I checked into the hospital for the 24-hour stroke protocol. As a 63-year-old single father of a 9- and 6-year-old, it was scary.”
In addition to his mini-stroke, Arnold shared that he entered “massive organ failure” two years ago, so he “knew” he needed to make “bigger changes.”
Arnold hired trainer Charles D’Angelo to get him into shape and has gone from 285 pounds to 210 pounds. While the “True Lies” actor said he would “like to lose a little more” weight, he feels “great” with his current results.
“I’m in touch with my body. I used to only look at my face in the mirror. Now, I deal with it,” he said.
Arnold, who shares son Jax Copeland, 8, and daughter Quinn Sophie, 6, with ex-wife Ashley Groussman, said his weight loss has given him the confidence to perhaps go out on a few dates.
“It’s a lot easier to let yourself go when the only people who see you with your shirt off are your kids,” he explained. “The thought of dating is a little scary for me, I’m a work in progress … but everybody deserves human contact, even me.”
