Matt Diaz has done something that many people couldn't even dream of doing. Six years ago when he was 16 years old, he weighed about 495 pounds. Since that time, through diet and exercise, he lost 270 pounds. Matt feels great and much more healthy, but there is an issue he needs to address.

Unfortunately even though he has lost the weight, he still has a reminder of who he used to be. His excess skin is still there on his body, and whenever he takes off his shirt he thinks about the past. However, Matt won't let this get him down. As an advocate for body-positivity, Matt decided to film himself with his shirt off to show people that it's important to be open about your body's appearance. 

You have to give Matt a lot of credit for doing something like this. He put himself out in the open, exposed for all to see, just to make people who have similar troubles feel better.
