He Weighed 700 Pounds, 700 Days Ago - Look At Him Now!

A man made an amazing transformation that has inspired countless people. A video documenting his journey has gotten more than 3,000,000 hits on YouTube. He says he owes it in part to Taylor Swift, even though he's never gotten the chance to meet her.

Ronnie Brower, 35, weighed nearly 700 pounds. He could barely walk, and doctors did not predict that he would live long. Over three years ago, he decided to make a change. The big guy put some Taylor Swift music on his phone and started working out.

It was hard for Brower. He had to do a lot of exercises from his chair at first, but he didn't give up. In time, he lost enough so that he could get up and walk. In the video montage, Brower's determination and dedication to his cause is evident-- and Swift is with him, in song at least, every step of the way.

Brower ended up losing over 400 pounds. His friend Joe Bufano made the video and posted it to YouTube, making a special request. Bufano hoped Taylor Swift would hear about Brower's big weight loss in hopes of arranging a back stage meeting. Bufano was bringing Brower to Swift's concert in Ohio and was hoping to surprise his friend with a face-to-face encounter.

Unfortunately, if Swift ever did get the message, she didn't respond. But it didn't dampen Brower's spirits in the least. He said the concert was 'amazing' and he's continuing to stun people with his dramatic weight loss.
