Tipping the scales at 308 pounds was the turning point for Japanese YouTuber Ruibosu. A year ago, the guy decided he’d had enough and started documenting his weight loss journey, sharing the series of video updates on his YouTube channel.

Ruibosu began following a strict diet and exercise regimen that included weight lifting, planks, and sit-ups, which he wouldn’t miss even if it was a rainy day. His determination started paying off and by the end of the first 3 months of changing his lifestyle, Ruibosu’s weight dropped to 238 pounds.

The guy kept on pushing himself further and managed to lose half of his body weight in an incredible transformation. He then released a 3-minute-long video summary that shows every step of his journey and will hopefully inspire us all to stick to our goal and follow our dream, whatever it’d be.

Ruibosu managed to shed half of his body weight over a year partly because he stuck to his training plan. He continually managed to meet his target weight goal, losing five kilos every single month.

At the end of the transformation, the scales revealed Ruibosu only weighed 151 pounds and gained a lot of muscle. Many commentators have noticed his enhanced facial features and how incredibly good-looking the dude has become.
