Dj Khaled has celebrated losing 43lbs of weight since becoming an ambassador for WW.
The 43-year-old, real name Khaled Mohamed Khaled, joined WW at the beginning of 2018 as a spokesperson for the brand to make “healthier habits for my life,” he said at the time.
And in a post on Instagram he updated his fans on his loss to date.
“A year ago I told y’all it’s coming OFF! I started at 293 lbs and now I’m OFFICIALLY 250 lbs!! They CALL ME SLIM JIM!! Thank you @ww for changing my life!!,” the record producer posted in the caption, alongside a before and after picture showing him looking much trimmer.
“And i ain’t stopping! We gon keep winning with the Freestyle Program!! I promise you!! It’s coming OFF! Join me and win with me on @WW. The new Weight Watchers. I’m not racing! I’m not speeding! I’m cruising! Ride with me through the journey link in my bio! *People following the WW plan can expect to lose 1-2 lbs/wk. #wwambassador #ad”.
The I’m the One hitmaker is one of several high-profile WW ambassadors tapped to represent the weight loss company since last year. As well as being a spokesperson, Oprah Winfrey is also a partial shareholder in the company, and WW added actress Kate Hudson to its roster last December.
Father-of-one Khaled regularly updates his 14 million Instagram followers with his weight loss wins after starting the regime in December 2017. By the following February he had lost 26lbs.
“Man. WeightWatchers is going good,” he previously told Page Six. “It’s a real lifestyle because all you have to do is not go over your point (total). And there are so many zero points (foods) in case you get hungry.”
