Almost a year after taking on a weight loss journey that began last November, Chaz Bono proves he's nowhere near giving up.
Cher's son, 44 – who told PEOPLE
in May, "I really like what I see in the mirror" – showed an even slimmer physique this week, wearing a fedora and a T-shirt while taking a leisurely stroll.
Shortly after kicking off his public mission
to lose at least 50 lbs., he said the plan was challenging because there were still things he missed eating. But as time progressed, those feelings were a thing of the past.
"[I have no cravings] at all anymore," the former Dancing with the Stars
contestant, who has lost at least 65 lbs. since beginning the challenge, said in the May interview. "I really feel very satisfied and comfortable with the way I eat now, which is amazing, and for me, kind of a miracle. I never thought I'd be that kind of a person."
