Look Who Has Dropped 43 lbs...
I don't care who you are - I support ANYBODY that loses weight. If you've ever struggled with extra pounds - I think you'll agree.
Chaz Bono's 2013 has gotten off to a healthy start!
The former Dancing With The Stars contestant, 43, has already dropped 43 lbs. since announcing his public mission to lose 50 lbs. beginning in mid-November.
He's now upped his goal to dropping a total of 80 lbs.
He's been sticking to a really strict diet.
Bono, who weighed 250 lbs. pre-diet, first addressed his goal publicly with Dr. Travis Stork on an episode of The Doctors, after being approached by the show to get help.
"That episode was the most uncomfortable I've ever been on television in my life," Bono admits. "I had been wanting to lose weight. It was something I had been trying to do and failing at. This opportunity just kind of came in, and my initial reaction was 'absolutely not.' And after that, the more I thought about it, I realized I've been wanting to deal with this issue and somebody's willing to help me do it, so I decided to throw my pride away and get help."
The initial weight-loss process actually wasn't too challenging. He shed the pounds with the help of exercise and the Freshology delivered-meal plan.
And Bono is adamant about keeping it off. So here's the big reveal:
