Clearly, something changed in the last few years that brought about Tim McGraw's weight loss transformation.

Tim's turning point

While speaking with MensHealth, the 52-year-old revealed that his daughter Gracie's comments was what helped him realize he needed to do better in terms of his weight.

Gracie had seen her dad star in the movie Four Christmases and remarked that her dad looked "big on the screen."

Speaking to CMT, Tim elaborated on the experience saying:

My face popped up on the screen. And my oldest daughter said, ’Geez, Dad. You really need to do something.’ And the next day, I was in the gym.”

Tim said that before making the change, he was on top of his career and wasn't really paying attention to his health. He ate and drank whatever and whenever he wanted.

However, upon realizing how dangerous his lifestyle was, he became more involved in fitness and over time, this became an important part of his life. It was only a matter of time before he shed over 40 pounds.

He revealed that making these conscious efforts to get his body on track came with several benefits. He said:

Certainly, it’s improved my physical condition. But it’s improved, I’d say, 85 percent of my mental condition.

His motivation

If his daughter's words were the spark that ignited his weight loss, it's Tim's desire to be there for his family that keeps him going.

While speaking to ETOnline, Tim said that his family was counting on him and he definitely wanted to stay alive and healthy for his kids.

I want to see my kids grow up, I want to be able to spend time with my grandkids.

Today, Tim McGraw looks super fit and healthy. And all it took to get him here was his daughter's reaction to what he looked like many years ago. He's now in a much happier and healthier place. Not only that, his dedication to fitness has become an inspiration for anyone who wants to make the same lifestyle change.
