Perez before he shifted the weight

He managed to shift between 70 and 80 pounds since 2008, and often tweets about his efforts to stay fit through diet and exercise.

He recently blogged for HuffPost Gay Voices to deny rumours he had gone under the knife to achieve his new body.

"And to all those folks who think I got in shape through some kind of surgery, I guess it's flattering you're in disbelief I look this good," he notes in the YouTube description of the video.

"Ha! BUT...I did it the hard way! Naturally! Putting in the effort! Over a long period of time! And I'm soooo happy!" he said.
