Andrews is resigning from politics and he is supposedly proud that he did not waste a minute in saying goodbye to politics. On Tuesday, he shocked everyone with the announcement that he was stepping down as premier after almost nine years because it was time to go and he did not want to resent his job. The longest-serving Labor premier of Victoria officially retired the next day.

With the news of his retirement, Daniel Andrews’ name has been splashed everywhere. Right now, he may have already left politics but he’s truly on everyone’s minds. It’s because of this that he is facing intense scrutiny which has led to people perceiving that he has had a bit of weight loss. To many, he has started to look a bit skinnier than he was before.

The former politician was not overweight but he was not the epitome of fitness either and he could do with losing a few pounds and looks like he has. Daniel Andrews has not undergone any drastic physical transformation. In fact, you would not even notice that he has had “weight loss” at all if it wasn’t for the scrutiny that came with the announcement of his resignation because the little change his body has been through is so negligible.

The only way you could tell that the former premier of Victoria has lost a bit of weight is if you noticed how his once prominent double chin is no longer there and his face does not look as chubby as it used to. As a matter of fact, his face looks noticeably slimmer than before and that is why people have arrived at the conclusion that he has had a weight loss.

Did Daniel Andrews Have Weight Loss Because He’s Conscious About His Weight?

After noticing that Daniel Andrews has had a slight weight loss, many people were reminded of the time when he was accused of mocking someone for being a little overweight and wondered if he lost weight because he was conscious of how unfit he had started to become.

In 2016, Andrew Katos who was the Liberal MP representing the electorate of South Barwon, called out Andrews for joking about his weight. He said that he has always had problems with his weight which sometimes troubled his mind and he didn’t appreciate it when Daniel Andrews thought it was funny to mock him about it when he was asking a serious question about crime in his electorate.

To his question, Labor MPs sarcastically remarked, “We didn’t see that coming” but he didn’t mind it as much as when Daniel chipped in to say, “First time anyone has said they didn’t see his coming” referencing his weight. This incident caused much outrage back then after which Daniel had to apologize. Anyway, the point is that he mocked someone’s weight and could it be that he started to become conscious of his own weight as he grew older and not fitter? If so, did it drive him to embark on a weight loss journey?

I know it’s a reach but it is possible. But it could have been a light-hearted comment that was not taken well because it was the opposition it was directed at. Anyway, Daniel Andrews seems to have had a bit of weight loss and we don’t really know the reason and we won’t until he himself talks about it.
