Treadmill, Twitter help Claire McCaskill lose 50 pounds

  • Twitter can be used as a weight-loss accountability device.

When U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill made the decision to try to lose weight, she used Twitter in an attempt to hold herself accountable. “I’m tired of looking and feeling fat,” she wrote in a message in May. “Maybe talking about it publicly will keep me on track as I try to be more disciplined. Off the gym.”

On track she stayed. McCaskill, 58, announced on Saturday that she had lost an impressive amount of weight.
