Ross Mathews Shows Off 50-Lb. Weight Loss!

“Very happy” Ross Mathews flaunts his slimmed-down figure!

Earlier this week on Instagram, the “Hello Ross” star revealed he lost 50 lbs. after reaching a “height” in early June.

The “RuPaul’s Drag Race” host said he “decided to reclaim [his] health” after the tragic passing of his mother.

“Breaking the pattern,” he captioned the stunning pic. “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).”

Though the television personality admits he “will always be a work in progress,” he is “very grateful” at this moment.

“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...” he added.

After Mathews posted his pic, several of his famous friends wrote messages of support in the comments section.

“Incredible!! An inspiration to us all. Yes the weight loss - but your spirit more so. I love you,” wrote Carnie Wilson.

“ look amazing!” said Mark McGrath.

“Congrats!!” commented Ali Landry.

Back in May, Mathews shared the news of his mother’s unfortunate death.

While posting a photo of him and his mom, he wrote, “I can’t imagine a world without her… She was my audience of one, my head cheerleader, my VIP.”

Despite her passing, Mathews took comfort in knowing that his 69-year-old mother “made colors more vibrant, made food more delicious and laughed with big-hearted, knee-slapping gusto.”
