On track she stayed. McCaskill, 58, announced on Saturday that she had lost an impressive amount of weight.
McCaskill's new shape was on display in Independence on Friday. The Mid-America Regional Council has photos of her appearance at the Truman Library with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders and others. The senator's Flickr account also has recent photos.
For more on using Twitter to lose weight, we recommend this piece that appeared in The New York Times and this piece that appeared at Deadspin. In the latter story, writer Drew Magary explains his decision to post his weight daily on Twitter:

Part of losing weight is acknowledging the fact that you have issues with food. And holy shit, do I have issues with food.
