Austin, 22, was nicknamed 'fat boy' by his buddies. His addiction to junk food and soda resulted in him reaching 324 pounds (174 kg). And the more he gained weight, the more people mocked him about it.
So, after getting tired of all this body-shaming, Austin decided to lose weight. First, he started the Atkins diet and lost over 9 pounds (4 kg) in the first week. He continued the diet and lost 80 pounds (36 kg) in three months.
He then hit the gym during night sessions to avoid looks of fat shamers to build-up his body. His hard work and efforts gave a stunning result. Here's what he looks like now.
