Have you ever promised yourself you’d go to gym, eat more healthy food, and actually to take care of your body? Or maybe you’ve always wanted to change your hair but never dared? Then these 18 guys who changed their image, quit drinking and smoking, and became simply unrecognizable will be great motivation for you.

At Bright Side, we selected 18 of the most impressive transformations. It’s hard to believe that it’s the same person in each pair of photos.

2.5 years of sobriety and powerlifting

“My girlfriend inspired me to lose weight, very glad I tried my best. This is after 2 years of weight loss.”

Sometimes you don’t need to lose weight to change your image. All you need to do is just grow hair and a beard.

“It’s been one year since I quit drinking.”

“I’ve lost a lot of weight, a lot of sadness, and a little facial hair. I’ve gained a whole new appreciation for life. Remember to always love yourself!”

“240 to 170 lbs in the past 18 months. I still can’t believe this is me — in either picture. I’m 45 years old now.”

“I managed to lose 180 lbs during my first 2 years of law school.”

Before: T-shirt size 20XL. Now: Minus 265 lbs.

5 years of progress and 140 lbs dropped

“Alcohol was destroying my life. No booze since November 7th 2017. Happiness is at an all-time high.”

7 months alcohol free, new life, and new image.

“My friends say I’m half the man I used to be!”

“I thought it was bad genes, but sports and exercise everyday changed my opinion.”

Your mood is always good when your weight is healthy.

“My weight was 375 lbs. Then I understood that I couldn’t live like this any longer and bought a gym membership with the last of my money. Here’s what I’ve achieved within a year’s time.”

There’s one year between these 2 photos.

“I was struggling with insane depression and awful self- confidence. Decided to chop off my hair after 10 years of being a lazy hippie. I’ve never felt anything more invigorating.”

Some actors also have to change their image for an upcoming part.

Bonus: It’s not just humans that can change their appearance and body build.
