If you’re looking for some weight loss inspiration, look no further than Chaz Bono.
The former Dancing With The Stars contestant has lost an incredible amount of weight since November 2012 when he vowed to change his life.
Bono started with a 50 pound goal.
The son of Cher and the late Sonny Bono weighed about 250 pounds at the end of 2012 and promised himself that he would get below 200 by the end of 2013.
Well, Bono reached that goal much quicker than he planned. In April, Chaz revealed that he had already lost 60 pounds but said that he still wanted to lose another 20 pounds.
In May, Chaz gave fans another update saying that he had lost 65 pounds and now had about 15 more to go.
Bono hasn’t provided his fans with an official number yet but it looks like the former DWTS contestant has reached (or is very close to) his weight goal.
Bono was spotted out in LA this week and fans were shocked to see his transformation.
Here’s a before and after pic of the star.

Chaz may be approaching his weight loss goal, but that doesn’t mean that he’s going to quit his healthy lifestyle. The star said that the secret to his success hasn’t been a specific diet or workout regime but an absolute change in lifestyle.
I find it so ironic that I’m getting tweets from folks asking me for diet advice. It’s not about dieting, it’s changing eating habits 4ever.

Earlier this year, Bono said that he was happy to reach his goal but added that his weight loss journey was never really about a specific number. Bono released that he had to change his life and to that end the reality star has succeeded.
Bono said: “To me, it was never really about a number. It was just about getting healthy and feeling and looking better. So I’m just kind of letting my body dictate. I’ve been eating the same way now for months and months and that hasn’t changed. I’m going to have to eat this way for the rest of my life.”
