"Being overweight, you're obviously very self-conscious about how you look," he says in the above video.

"Losing the weight, I'm not as self conscious when I have a layer over my skin. I'm comfortable clothed, but I'm not that comfortable unclothed."

Glaude undresses in front of the camera, revealing the excess skin he has gained since losing weight.

He created the video to tackle his insecurity head-on, and wants others to do the same.

"You should never let loose skin stop you from going for your dream," he says. "Loose skin and all, I am happy with where I have come from and where I'm at now.
