“And to think Sundays used to be for muffins #bestshapeofmylife,” he captioned the post. However, fans of the actor praised his improvement in the comments section. “I knew he was gon lose that weight,” one person wrote. Another user added, “KING WILL.”

One commenter even used Smith’s motivating phrase from his film The Pursuit of Happiness: “Don’t ever let someone tell you, you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.”

Meanwhile, Smith has been on a rigorous health and fitness regimen to shed the pounds he acquired during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last several months, he has been posting pictures and videos of his strenuous exercises on social media.

The actor has kept the content lighthearted, often uploading amusing videos about his efforts to recover strength and get back into shape. Smith stated in May that he was in “the worst shape of my life,” and vowed to focus on his health.

“This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry,” he captioned a shirtless photo of himself. “I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better,” he wrote at the time.

Interestingly, Smith also revealed on May 4 as per PEOPLE that he would be chronicling his transformation in collaboration with YouTube for a new original series debuting next year that will follow him on his health and fitness journey.
