Man Bravely Strips Off to Reveal the Excess Skin After Incredibly Losing 270 Pounds!

Matt Diaz has worked extremely hard to lose 270 pounds over the past six years. The result? Incredible!

A A A

Blogger Matt Diaz, 22, took social media abuzz when he posted his half-naked photos on his Tumblr blog. Diaz lost about 270 lbs, and has since carried excess skin all over his body. While he religiously documented his weight loss journey, which started when he was 16 years old, he never revealed how he looks like under his shirt. For him, the excess skin on his body are flaws that he is too scared to expose. But then, he realized that he cannot promote positivism and acceptance in his blog if he himself is not ready to embrace his imperfection. Just recently, he decided to show his body to the world saying,

Before posting the video showing off his stretch marks, excess skin, and skin folds all over his body, Diaz said that he experienced severe anxiety.

“I’m scared people won’t find me attractive anymore. I’m scared that all the nice messages will stop.”

Conversely, people only have positive words to say to Diaz. He was surprised and overwhelmed when a surge of really nice words flooded his blog.

“You are gorgeous Matt, I would date you.”

“This is hands down the bravest thing I’ve ever seen.”

He was initially scared to show off his body to the public.

Diaz said that all he wants is to be proud of the person that he is, and he encourages everyone to do the same. He believes that he can start to attain this self-vision by not hiding his flaws. Although he is determined to exercise and follow a strict diet plan to get rid of his excess skin, he is aware that the only way to achieve this goal is to go under the knife. He then started the GoFundMe campaign in the hope of raising $20,000 for his surgery. As of this writing, Diaz was already able to collect $32,000.

When asked about his advice to people undergoing low self-esteem and body image disturbance, he told Upworthy,

“I want you to remember that you are not the problem, certain aspects of society are the problem. Luckily, we’re slowly starting to see these ideas get phased out by modernity. Plus-sized, un-retouched models are getting more attention in major brands… it’s becoming clear that these negative ideas are not going to last, though it’s going to take a while.”

This Mother Did Not Receive Formal Education. How She ‘Taught’ Her Child? Amazing!

Let your children learn through their own experiences.

Children view adults as mentors. How an adult acts and reacts to life situations can greatly influence a child's identity. We can all be considered teachers in the eyes of a child, as we share basic information that can help increase their knowledge.

However, the children today are more advanced, maybe because they now have access to unlimited information that are just one click away. But there is more to life that needs to be learned- things that only experience can teach, experiences that can help children become wiser.

This inspiring video depicts the difference between wisdom and knowledge. A simple yet powerful story that is clearly and cleverly presented. It is a story about a mother, her daughter...and a pineapple.

The Lawrie family has had plenty of children for five generations, yet all of these young ones were boys.

Did you know that the last time they had a girl was back in 1809, the year famous people such as Charles Darwin, Abraham Lincoln, and Edgar Allan Poe were born! Yep. That’s a long, long, long, long time ago!

So, when Mark married his sweetheart Hannah, he warned her to not wish for a girl because the family hasn’t had any luck in that department for over 200 years. Still, Hannah thought it would be quite nice to have a princess in the family, especially in one that hasn’t seen pink for too long.

By

After a falling out with her first husband who called her “fat and ugly” for weighing 13st 8lbs (190 lbs), Liz Kerslake decided she’s had enough of his bullying. She broke up with him.

While in the process of getting divorced from her first husband, she met and fell in love with Nick. Despite her weight, he loved her unconditionally. Nick never called her fat and ugly.

Perhaps as a reward to Nick and to boost confidence in herself, Liz went on a diet and enrolled in a weight loss program. Her determination was so great that she dropped 10 dress sizes and soon weighed only 8.5st (119 lbs)!
