Backstreet Boys star AJ McLean has embarked on a fitness journey and managed to lose a whopping 27lbs in eight months. After going on a health kick earlier this year and admitted that the lifestyle change has improved his mental health.

AJ began focusing on his health more when he competed on Dancing With The Stars approximately two years ago, he told People. ‘ The 44-year-old revealed in a new interview, “I was doing a TV show in South Africa this past February. So between February and now, I’ve lost 27 lbs.”

AJ was in South Africa to film the competition reality show The Fashion Hero: A New Kind Of Beautiful, where he was serving as the host. He shared with the outlet that ‘the health kick started’ for him on Dancing With The Stars, which he began competing on in September 2020.

AJ even got a cosmetic procedure that tightened up the loose skin from his weight loss with a combination of liposuction and radiofrequency waves. Lately he has been on tour with the Backstreet Boys, and the grueling physical exertions he goes through onstage have also helped him retain his figure.

At the start of September he posted an Instagram collage showing his impressive progress from his previous ‘dadbod’ to his current sculpted physique. You can check it out below. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
