Rhimes decided to try and lose a whopping 150 pounds not for vanity reasons, but for the sake of her health. The hugely talented creative confessed she previously couldn’t even manage a small flight of stairs without working up a sweat. And she also wanted to ensure that she was around to see her young children grow up.
