The media is full of body imagery that is seemingly impossible to attain, which is what makes this so important.

Matt Diaz has lost 270 pounds over the last six years, which is amazing, but it's also left him with excess skin that has remained. The skin has made Diaz extraordinarily self-conscious, so he made a video showing everyone.

He doesn't shy away from explaining how scared he is to let the entire world see all the old flab and the backlash he may receive.

Diaz doesn't want to feel any shame and he is fiercely proud of how much effort he's put in to lose the weight, but he's still wrestling with doubt and uncertainty that clouds his ability to love who he is.

If you could tell Matt something to keep his chin up, what would you say?
