Last month, Chaz Bono revealed that he had lost 60 pounds in about five months. The weight loss was due, Bono said, to the help of a doctor and a change in eating habits. The former Dancing With The Stars contestant stated that diets don’t work for him, so he completely changed the foods he eats.

Now, one month later, Bono is down 65 pounds. According to an interview published in People magazine, Bono stated that he is “feeling really good” and really likes what he sees in the mirror, though he still misses some foods he can no longer eat. The 48-year old LGBT activist also said that he would like another chance to be on Dancing With The Stars, as he feels he would fare better in the competition with the weight off.

Bono also revealed that his health has improved as a result of the weight loss. He told People that he feels better in general when performing physical tasks and exercising. His blood pressure and cholesterol are now at normal levels, and his confidence is high.

    That poor lady. Sure hope she overcomes her demons? Keep you in my prayers Chastity.

      Paul, you are referring to someone who doesn’t exist. Chaz is a man, and it’s blatantly obvious to see. What is wrong with your vision? Do you need glasses? Congratulations, you have turned this positive story about HIS weight loss into something negative with your cruel, snarky, bigotted, discriminating, hatefull comment. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. I’m sure you’d be rather incensed if someone were to refer to you as a she or a lady. You are no more a man than HE.

          What “she” did was a horrific thing to his mom and his late dad. Shameful!

      Paul, you are the person that makes life so miserable for anyone that is a bit different. Can I use the word “jackdonkey” here?

      Paul you are right I hope too she does..and for Tori who thinks you were talking about someone who doesnt exist..that is so funny considering SHE is and always will be a female..DNA dont change…doesnt matter what you do to the outside of your body.. God knows and she will be judged in her passing.. Just have to try and over look people like this..dont even know why they consider this news, so what anyone can lose weight…

    I think he is quite handsome and I know he has a great sense of humor. I’d love to go out i him. He’d be a blast and have more manners than most guys, I’m sure.

    Good job, and don’t stop now, Chaz. Another 65 would be good, and you’ve shown you can do it, so don’t quit now.
