On Wednesday, Matt turned to Tumblr to expose his excess skin to the world for the first time.
"I am trying really hard to love myself," Matt said in the video. "I can't preach body positivity and not show who I am."
Matt said that while he's trying to remain strong, he couldn't hold back anymore. "I had to show you guys," he said. "I want to be proud of who I am and I want all of you to be proud of who you are and part of that is not hiding it."
While Matt said that he is indeed happy with who he is, he would be even more comfortable if he could get his excess skin removed.
In addition to posting his incredibly brave video, Matt also created a GoFundMe page to raise money for surgery. Just four hours after posting the video and GoFundMe link, he had already raised over $16,200 — his goal is $20,000.
