He’s Lost 270 Pounds, but when he Takes Off his Shirt, He Reveals His Biggest Secret

What happens when you work hard to lose your excess weight and still don’t have the body you want? That’s the struggle that Matt Diaz faces every day of his life.

I’ve seen some incredible weight loss transformations before, like this guy who lost 80 lbs the old-fashioned way, but none have inspired me quite like Matt’s. Despite his insecurities, he showed the world that it shouldn’t matter what your body looks like, but what it can do. Whitney Thore delivered the same message when she danced like a champion to prove that being plus-sized doesn’t mean you can’t work it! This young man is truly an inspiration to anyone struggling with accepting their own body.

Once people started offering to help him pay for skin removal surgery, Matt set up a GoFundMe page. In just two days, donors surpassed the $20,000 goal by $28,000. It looks like Matt will finally be able to be truly happy in his own skin.
