Transgender advocate Chaz Bono, son to Cher and the late Sonny Bono, has lost 45 pounds. On Oprah: Where Are They now?, Bono talks about the weight he was finally able to shed. When asked if it was easier now, after transitioning from female to male (which he did in 2009), Bono says “I would have never been able to do it before [transitioning].” He added, “I was too disconnected from my body, and the dysphoria that I had with my body was too much to be able to have cared enough.”
In 2012, Bono made a public vow to lose at least 50 pounds. Since then the 45-year-old actor has lost 75 pounds. Oprah: Where Are They Now? airs Saturdays at 10pm on OWN.
