Chaz Bono has now lost 65 lbs.
The former Dancing With The Star’s contest showed off his 60 lb weight loss earlier this month and was proud to announce this week that he’s dropped another 5 lbs. off the scale.
Bono, who began his weight loss journey last November, originally said that he wanted to lose 50 lbs. Bono’s weight loss journey has been going great so far and the reality star recently upped his goal to 80 lbs.
Chaz Bono has lost 65 lbs since he started working on his body and he’s now just 15 lbs from his goal.
Bono told People Magazine: “Physically, my body feels just so much better … I’m in a lot less discomfort when I exercise and am doing physical stuff. All of my numbers are all normal now, which is great – my blood pressure, my cholesterol. I just have a lot more confidence, and that feels really cool. I really like what I see in the mirror.”
The reality star said that his weight loss journey isn’t just about hitting a certain number. Bono said that he wanted to change his lifestyle and become a healthier person.
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.

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.”
