A Irishman has made an incredible transformation after shedding 19 stone in two years.

At his peak, 21-year-old Dylan Condron weighed 32 stone.

However, after changing his diet and exercising with a personal trainer, he's now almost unrecognisable.

Dylan said his weight previously took its toll on him and he didn't even like to leave the house.

"For most of my life I have been overweight. When I was 19 years old I weighed over 32 stone," Dylan said in a post on his Go Fund Me page. "I stayed in my room all the time because I was afraid of what people would think of me. Deep down I knew I was dying."

He tried on a t-shirt, which was bought for him by a neighbour, but it was a XXXXXXL, the Mirror reports.

He knew something needed to change and that was that. Dylan decided it was time to transform his lifestyle.

And that he did, he managed to shed 19 stone.

Sadly, it his journey isn't quite at an end. As you'd expect, after losing that much weight, Dylan has been left with a lot of excess skin, which knocks his confidence.

"My life has changed but I have a fairly large reminder of how I used to be," he said. "I want to be able to help and inspire others who are heavy and are embarrassed to leave their houses every day."

To do that, he needs an operation costing €10,000 (£8,380) that removes the skin. Obviously, that's a lot of money, so he needs help.

"I'm not someone who ever asks or wants handouts but the operation to lose the excess skin costs over €10,000 and is a bridge too far for me at the moment," he wrote on Go Fund Me.

"I want to be able to tell people that it's possible to change. I would be so grateful to anyone who can help me finish my weight loss journey."

Given the effort he's put in, I'm sure he'll reach his target. To help him, click here.
