Shay shared a video montage of photos on Instagram and reflected on the journey.

“It’s weird not recognizing yourself. I got to a place mentally and physically that I will never go again,” he wrote in the accompanying caption. “It matters what we eat. It matters who you spend your time with. It matters what you choose to spend your time on.”

“I’m so thankful for the people in my life that helped me make a change. No one forced me into this. I wanted to change my life for me. I’ve never felt more alive,” he added.

During an appearance on TODAY, Shay explained what inspired the decision: “I had this moment where I was just not feeling healthy. It wasn’t necessarily for my appearance, but it was to feel healthy.”

Shay shared some very exciting news earlier this year.
