Lorraine Bracco's decision to lose weight wasn't for vanity.
Instead, the Sopranos actress was inspired to get in better shape after taking care of her ailing parents. After they died in 2011, Bracco took control of her health. "We were sitting there, dividing these medications, who gets what when. It was insane. I watched and realized, 'I don't want to go like that,'" she tells ABC News. "I said, 'I want to be the best I could be.' I want to live every day the best I can be."
Bracco weighed 183 lbs. when her weight loss journey began and has since lost an impressive 35 lbs. "The last person on the take care of list was me. I let myself go," the Rizzoli & Isles actress admits.
