John Glaude proudly lost a whopping 160 pounds, but admits there's a part of weight loss a lot of people don't talk about: loose skin.
With clothes on, Glaude says, “I’m not as self-conscious at all…when I have a layer over my skin.” But taking off that layer is a lot more difficult for the now 200-pound man.
“It’s not as perfect as people want to think,” Glaude says of his new body, which includes noticeably saggy skin.
In the video below, he shows all the places he has excess skin. “This is not what I would’ve wanted after losing 160 pounds, right? I would’ve wanted to have a perfect body,” he confesses.
But Glaude's reason for making the video is to show viewers "it's ok" to have imperfections. “You should never let loose skin or anything else stop you from going for your dreams," he says. "Loose skin and all, I am happy with where I’ve come from and where I’m at.”
