It was only a few months ago in December when a hefty-looking Kevin Federline was hospitalized while filming Australia’s weight-loss show, Excess Baggage. This week, the former backup dancer appears to be in a healthier place.
Federline, 34, was photographed golfing Wednesday in a long, white, collared shirt with dark shorts. Missing? The belly that he’s had for quite some time.
The father of five struggled with his weight in the public eye after splitting from ex-wife Britney Spears.
In Feb. 2010, he admitted during an interview that he “looked pregnant,” adding, “It was upsetting … People [were] calling me ‘K-Fat.’ I had to do something about it.”
He then went on to sign up for VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club 7: Boot Camp, where he shed pounds, only to gain them back again shortly thereafter.
Here’s hoping he can keep his lbs. and golf score low.
