Chaz Bono, 43, who clearly has been struggling with his/her weight is making a public attempt to shed the pounds. Chaz sat down with Dr. Travis Stork on ‘The Doctors” seeking help to lose a recommended fifty (50 lbs) pounds to eighty pounds.

Now weighing 250 lbs. at just 5 ft. 5½ in, Chaz says “There was a lot of pressure to be underweight growing up, I hope the pressure of doing something publicly will give me more incentive [to lose weight].”

The show, which airs Bono’s episode on Nov. 14, will follow up with him during the year as he documents his weight loss journey.
