RuPaul’s Drag Race host Ross Matthews has taken to Instagram and Twitter to share his significant weight loss months after he made the decision to “reclaim” his health.
On Sunday, Matthews, 41, posted a beaming photo of himself dressed in a black coat, revealing that he’s dropped 50 pounds since the beginning of the summer.
“Breaking the pattern,” he wrote. “50lbs down today from my height in early June when I decided to reclaim my health after my mom died (70lbs down from my all-time). I will always be a work in progress. I may mess up again. I dunno. All I know is that I’m very grateful. And very happy. On we go.”
