Chaz Bono has faced struggles almost all his life but he is now well and truly winning his fight against obesity.
The 44-year-old looked half his former size as he stepped out in West Hollywood, California, on Wednesday.
The son of Cher and the late Sonny Bono started his weight loss journey in 2011 after starring on Dancing With The Stars.
At the time, Chaz weighed a staggering 253 pounds despite being only 5 foot 5.
It was not until November the following year, however that the LGBT activist really committed to losing weight in and just nine months later had dropped over 70 pounds – ten more pounds than his goal weight.
Now it appears the star may have lost even more weight, with Chaz showing off his defined arms and much flatter stomach as he arrived for class at Anthony Meindl’s actors workshop.
The 44-year-old did reveal one of his secrets to weight loss as he went to feed his meter – a bottle of water made to taste better with, no doubt low calorie, orange flavouring.
Chaz’s other secret has been dedicating himself to diet and exercise as well as using recently FDA approved obesity drug Qsymia under the supervision of a doctor.
Chaz sought medical help as he required doctors to work out a way for him to loose weight while continuing to take male hormones following his gender reassignment surgery.
