Man who lost 19 stone releases video of his excess skin to send positive message about body image

A man who lost 19 stone in weight has bravely released a video showing his excess skin in an effort to promote a positive message about body image.

Matt Diaz, who says he has never shown anyone his excess skin before, dropped from about 35 stone at his heaviest to about 16 stone over the course of six years.

All of this is just excess skin from the weight loss, and I work out and I work really hard.. and there's just nothing I can do about it.

I'm scared to put this up because I'm scared people won't think I'm attractive any more, I'm scared all the nice messages will stop... but I think it's important I'm not ashamed of who I am.
