Lookin’ good, darling! EJ Johnson has lost over 100 pounds, he revealed to Wendy Williams during an appearance on her talk show on May 5.

"It's definitely somewhere far over 100," the Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star said proudly. "I mean like literally almost half my size."

Magic Johnson’s son has been shedding pounds over the past nine months after undergoing gastric bypass surgery, which he considers a “tool.”

“I think that it was something that really helped me jumpstart the life I definitely wanted to lead,” he explained of the surgery. “I wanted to be the best me I can be and that's always something I wanted to do. It's something that I struggled with and I needed that push in the right direction. And now my mindset is completely changed." 

In a candid interview with Entertainment Tonight back in October 2014, the E! reality star revealed Star Jones helped him make the decision to go under the knife, which left his stomach now the size of a banana.

"She told me that it was definitely a tool for a whole new life," Johnson recalled of Jones, who underwent gastric bypass surgery in 2003. "It was not something that was the easy way out by any means. This is not something that you do and then all of a sudden everything is gone and you're skinny and you're a new person. It's definitely a tool and something that you have to work at."
