People Magazine has an exclusive on Chaz Bono's Oprah: Where Are They Now? sit-down with Winfrey, in which he discusses why he never could've lost the weight he needed to lose without transitioning first:
I would have never been able to do it before [transitioning]. I was too disconnected from my body, and the dysphoria that I had with my body was too much to be able to have cared enough to anything like that.
He also tells Oprah that looking at old pictures of himself from before his transition is painful, and can be a reminder of bad times, rather than a nostalgic walk down memory lane.
Oprah: Where Are They Now? airs Saturdays (10 p.m. ET) on OWN.
