CNN anchor Errol Barnett promised his followers on Instagram he’d show “more of a personal side” in 2015. Barnett, who anchors overnight CNN International newscasts simulcast on CNN, had previously used the photo-sharing social network to post photos from his reporting travels through Africa.
Over the holiday weekend, Barnett kept his promise to reveal more–detailing his recent weight loss, along with a buff shirtless photo of himself:
Some of you commented on my #weightlossover the past year so I thought on my #bday I would come clean; I weighed 200lbs with 25% body fat not too long ago when I essentially lived and worked on the road. Since returning to the US, I vowed to get #fit. Today I'm 175lbs, 8% fat and #running 10k's at a much better pace than before. I'm realizing that the best #gift you can give yourself is good #health. Cheesy I know but so damn true. I've aimed for it through resistance training, cardio and eating clean.
