Truly makes me so happy to see all your hard work paying off, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally too.Inspires me and everyone else around to become better versions of ourselves.”

The singer opened up about what inspired him to lose weight in an interview last month. He joked, “I gotta stand next to this guy all of the time,” pointing to his bandmate Dan. “I had this moment where I was just not feeling healthy. It wasn’t necessarily for my appearance, but it was to feel healthy. And I’m down about 53 or 54 pounds,” he added.
Mooney further revealed the secret behind his transformation and said that eating clean, avoiding alcohol, some weight lifting, and walking 7 miles a day helped him achieve his dream figure. “That’s it! I completely changed my lifestyle and I’ve never felt better physically, mentally, and spiritually,” the singer concluded.
