Perez's Annual Shirtless 4th of July Video!

| Filed under: Personally PerezInspiration

Why make this video? For several reasons!

Perez has been making a shirtless 4th of July video annually since 2008. It's a way to hold ourselves accountable. We said we were going to work towards being healthier and more fit, and this was a great way to "lay it all out there".

Also, having a goal and something to work towards is a great motivator!

We also hope that by sharing our journey, we might inspire some of you to work on your fitness as well and lead a healthier life. If we can do it, you can too! You just need to believe! And DO IT!

Plus, documenting our body every 4th of July is also a great way to see progress, how much we've changed from year to year.

And we sure have changed a lot just these past seven months - both physically and spiritually!

We have seen a DIRECT CORRELATION between our health and our happiness! The healthier we've become = the happier we've become!

This has been a year of intense change, growth, challenges, fun and more! And we're still in the process of "figuring it all out"!

We think we will always be in the process of "figuring it all out"! That's life! It's a journey! It's constantly changing. Embrace that change!

Believe in your dreams. Believe in yourself!

Much love to you all!

Happy 4th!!!!!!!!

xoxo

    Great, now I've got the dry heaves. Aunt Jemima phoned, she wants her pancake nipples back. There's only one reason you post this. Not to document progress but to satisfy your self-absorbed need for approval and to check every 5 minutes to see what compliments you've received. Your vanity is ugly and unappealing, Your shrink must be a quack if he/she hasn't addressed this.
    PS - You is fugly.

    Congrats, that is amazine and inspiring!! Keep up the great work!

    I don't know why I insist on watching the videos you make, excuse me while I vomit

    who is "we"??????



  7. 7

    "Why make this video? For several reasons!" No, you do it for one reason, dumbass, and that's to fish for compliments/admiration. You NEED that. I'm not going to watch your video because you're an ugly person inside and out. I don't care what you weigh, because you're always going to be an ugly person inside and out. You are a phony and a bully and a hypocrite; to point this out to you and the very few visitors who like you is why I come here. And I won't quit until your useless, pathetic ass goes away.

    Wow. every year it gets better and better. Amazing that it took so long but you stuck to it and now you could never imagine that you were ever overweight. Well done.



  10. 10

    Couldn't you shift the day to 31 October (Hallowe'en) or 1 April (All Fools' Day) where people are expecting such nauseating and tasteless displays of idiocy.

  11. nytiak says – reply to this


    11

    Woohoo! Congrats! Keep up the great work.



  12. 12

    Actually you look terrific! good for you! You inspire me…but I'm SUCH a couch potato! It won't be easy!



  13. 13

    Not to be a jerk to you, but while I think you have accomplished a lot when it comes to your weight, I still think the way you are parading yourself is a bit thick. I mean, I understand why you have this huge boost of self-esteem, but your behavior in the video makes you come across as insane, in need of attention and approval, and pathetic (specially when you refer to yourself as we). As a result, I honestly think you could benefit from incorporating a bit of real humility into your personality.

    By the way, you still look too skinny. Your face looks sucked in a bit and not in a sexy model way. I'm not saying that you're hideous or anything like that, but you're looking a bit homeless, from that messy hair, the messy five o'clock shadow, and your attire. Seriously Perez, eat something and clean yourself up. You have the money so put it to good use.



  14. 14

    Congrats! I think you're looking better now because you've gained some muscle unlike before wherein you're just thin. Just a little more work on your legs.



  15. 15

    You look great! Congratulations! Just one thing - I know you have worked hard, but can you please tell us whether or not you are using any Human Growth Hormones? I know they are all the rage for the rich and famous who claim to look good 'naturally'. Please let us know.



  16. 16

    Awesome and inspiring. Keep up the good work.

    As perez himself(s) would say…..Teeheeheehee.

    Damn, Perez! You is looking FIIIINE.

  19. Cdog says – reply to this


    19

    Gosh. You are such an inspiration. I love that you included pics or snaps of the previous years. Muscle, indeed! Keep it up!



  20. 20

    just another cry for attention by a lonely man. I suspect you would lose some of your self esteem issues if you EVER obtained a real boyfriend instead of those in your fantasy life, and the ones you rent by the hour. However your emotional problems and disturbing obsession with straight guys dicks probably precludes you finding any healthy romantic relationship.

  21. Bill says – reply to this


    21

    Dude, I gotta hand it to you. You have worked really hard and the results are amazing. Keep it up. And don't mind the haters - they are truly ugly. Anyone who is making healthy choices deserves respect and admiration. You look great and you have inspired me!

  22. michelle says – reply to this


    22

    I have watched you progress for the past 5 years. You are truly an inspiration! Look at those abs, baby!!!



  23. 23

    You look amazing. I lost a lot of weight and oddly I still saw myself over weight even when the scale said I wasn't. It takes work to stay that way and I wish you the best. Again, you look amazing.



  24. 24

    Well Perez, I have to say you look pretty good. You've clearly been working hard and it shows, so good for you for taking control of your health. Just don't let it go to your head ok? nobody likes a braggart

  25. mamabear says – reply to this


    25

    That was amazing…you are truly an inspiration. You've come so far and hopefully you continue on your wonderful journey..Have a blessed day..



  26. 26

    You are so full of yourself it makes me sick.



  27. 27

    Can you wear a brown paper bag over your head if you're going to persist in doing this?

  28. Stop the negativity! says – reply to this


    28

    I don't know why people feel the need to post negative things about this,Perez. You are a person who happens to have a blog and you are who you are! People shouldn't read blogs of if they don't like the content. Anyway, congratulations on your physical accomplishments. It isn't easy and it's admireable that you turned your life around, and that you've made your journey public. People should be inspired, not mean. I don't know Perez or these people making mean comments, but I'd sure as hell rather know Perez given the choice! Stay healthy and happy everyone!



  29. 29

    Perez, You look HOT!!!! & you look amazing congratulations on your healthy accomplishment.

    I'm so very proud of my fellow Floridian! You have made such positive changes over the last 5 years, you are an inspiration and I have so much respect for you for identifying the changes you wanted to make and then holding yourself accountable. Way to be Perez.

  31. Lola says – reply to this


    31

    Perez you now look amazing. This has been a long road for you and you have kept at it. I am so proud of you and your mental and physical changes for the better! Keep up all of the positive in your life and kudos for the bit of extra muscle…it balances you out perfectly!

  32. Karen T says – reply to this


    32

    Ignore the haters. You've done an awesome job! Keep it up!



  33. 33

    Re: Stop the negativity! – Shut up, asshole. The hypocrite deserves what he gets. He's inflicted pain and humiliation on others, and this is called karma, retard.
    .
    Re: Karen T – Awwwwwww … Karen gotta be a hater by throwing that moronic word around? Please stop breathing. We don't need ass lickers like you on the planet. You're as big a waste of oxygen as Perez is, dumb ass.

  34. ummm says – reply to this


    34

    Why do you refer to yourself as "we"?
    You are only one person. It bothers me on almost every post you make. Especially this one, since it's clear this only YOU.

  35. ummm says – reply to this


    35

    Re: ummm
    This is only YOU **

    Correction



  36. 36

    I just threw up in my mouth a little … and you still haven't worked on that face.



  37. 37

    Perez, I gotta say, you do look great. That's a huge, huge accomplishment. Nothing these haters say can take that away from you.



  38. 38

    Looks like Perez has a little pee-pee :(



  39. 39

    Re: Stop the negativity! – Hi Perez, I'll reply to this since this is obviously you. You have made an amazing accomplishment with your body, truly. Congrats on that. If you would really make that same commitment to your emotional and spiritual being, that would be a real accomplishment. You say you've changed, but you haven't. You still bully so many people over and over and obsess sexually over straight people. You tell lies, and hurt people. Let me be very clear. YOU ARE STILL A BULLY. The hypocrisy is massive. Deepak Chopra, who did support you, if he actually read your website and saw the types of things you say about people or if he saw you on that talk show, he would tell you how far you have to go in that arena. Again, I know people who have seen you out and about on the scene who still say the same things about you, and it's not good. It is obvious you are trying, but you have not succeeded where ultimately it really counts, and that is in how you treat people.

    nice LIPO SCAR @ 1:15 homo!

    41

    Wow, you look great. You should be proud of yourself and hopefully you can inspire a lot of people to a healthier life. I still havent lost all my pregnant-weight but Im working on it and this made me realize that it IS possible for me to get back in shape even if it doesnt feel like it right now. :) Happy 4th of July to all of you Americans!



  42. 42

    I have to give you credit where credit is due…Congrats on acheiveing what you want to acheive.

    With that being said…You are waay to full of yourself…The first couple of videos were about showing off your progress. Now its all about you satisying your need to be self induldged need to be complimented and admired. You're vain, full of yourself, and completely unattractive.



  43. 43

    Absolutely disgusting!!!! Clearly you had plastic surgery… where's all that extra skin you fat, lazy piece of shit. The just sucked it out and injected it into that enormous head of urs. Kill yourself.



  44. 44

    you look amazing Perez! very inspirational! :) xo



  45. 45

    Re: Stop the negativity! – Oh Hilton, give it up. No one is fooled by your fake accounts and the pretentious self-congratulatory bullshit. You vanity is truly pathetic and disgusting. You can change the outside all the one, the inside will always be ugly and shallow. And I know you've been checking in every 5 minutes so thanks for reading this.
    PS - Don't think I've called you a douchebag yet today. You're a douchebag.

    46

    You look amazing! All of your hard work has really paid off and you definitely have a better body than most men. You deserve the attention, you earned it! Very happy for you, Perez. Haters gonna hate, keep your chin up and keep up the good work!

  47. Hope says – reply to this


    47

    I have never posted a comment before, but I felt I had to say a few things. First, anyone who is writing negative things about your journey is a loser of EPIC proportion. Why watch the video? Why read the blog? Those people need meds or counseling, or something. Second, you look great. You have clearly worked your butt off (no pun intended) and it shows. Keep up the hard work!!!

  48. jg610 says – reply to this


    48

    there he goes again…. full of delusional self-promotion. Just the thing he used to criticize his fame-crazy celebs for. i wouldn't watch that video for anything. Personally i read the headlines but I am quickly becoming sickened by Perez. Time to move to another online columnist folks.



  49. 49

    OMG PEREZ! U LOOK GREAT!! You are a role model baby! 1Love ! :-)

    Re: Perez Hilton – You do look great. Tell us if it is natural or hormone assisted? Not judging, just curious.

  52. Shannon says – reply to this


    52

    I don't know why anyone would watch the video and then be such dicks about it. You knew what it was before you pushed play. I think the negative nellies out there are just jealous and need to make themselves feel better by pissing on your parade. I say good for you, put it out there. If that's what helps you to stay on track then have at it, don't listen to all the negative people out there. I think you look awesome. Keep up the hard work. Look forward to your next video.

  53. Amber says – reply to this


    53

    Well done! You should be very proud of yourself! As someone who is also trying to better themselves physically, you have shown that it's NOT unobtainable. Thanks for that. Go on with your bad self!

    54

    fantastic job Perez! Very inspiring! You are terrific motivation for all of your followers to start/continue to look after themselves. You only get one body, make sure you keep it in peak condition to ensure optimum performance!

    I'm a girl.. but I'm jealous. And it is sooo easy to slip back into unhealthy ways. Big kudos.. wish I could say the same for myself



  61. 61

    Dear ericmtl,
    With HIV treatment today there are fewer cases of Karposi Sarcoma. As well the term AIDS and HIV are used in terminology which makes a distinction between the two. Perez is neither.

  62. Paula says – reply to this


    62

    Yes you have lost a lot of weight and that is a great thing….but come clean Mario….what's the REAL reason behind the weight loss brag? I think you have medical issues that you need to disclose to your fans because in a few years when you weigh less than a shadow on the wall….folks will know the truth.



  63. 63

    what will you do about your exceptionally large head and sagging torso and thighs and bird legs? you can do us all a favor by keeping your clothes next year and report on a real celebrity, okay.

  64. jojoma says – reply to this


    64

    I don't care what anyone says! YOU LOOK GREAT! You don't look too skinny and the muscles look great. That's awesome!!!!! What an inspiration!

    Good on you… Shows your long journey and how much work you have had to put in to get such a brilliant result… Not quite sure why people who seem to hate you would bother watching? Eff them, you have done a great job! Mad props!

    Thanks so much for that…how shall I say this….beyond creepy video. I will now retire to the outdoors where I will swallow a firecrcker in the hopes that I will blow my eyeballs out of my head so I will never be subjected to something like this again.



  71. 71

    Congrats! You are such an inspiration, I didn't think it was possible but you look like you could never have been overweight, I hope this helps a lot of people realize they can do it too! Happy Fourth of July!

    Re: Lady Who? – When he posted 5 years ago was he looking for approval? If you were over weight and self conscious (which you probably are) I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be jumping up and down waiting for comments on an image of yourself you not proud of. Your little gist is embarrassingly off base. An issue you should probably bring up with your shrink….who is obviously a quack because if your posting shit like this on the internet you have a Grand Canyon sized slew of issues Dr Quack has failed to "address".
    PS you is a waste of space

    PPS keep kicking ass Perez….and work those spedos. Maybe not around Matthew Macconaughey….he might get jealous



  78. 78

    Re: Shannon – well said they are fucking insane they are here everyday posting negativity them and their pals.. they are obsessed with hating on perez …

    Re: SteveIsHot – You sound jealous.. Seems as if you are. Maybe you need to follow Perez's fitness plan cuz you are clearly unhappy with your life. It is VERY CLEAR his transformation is all self educed. There is not ONE surgery going on here for his transformation. Why post if you hate him so much. How would ur mom feel if someone told you to " kill yourself" sad sack….

    87

    Congratulations! You look fab, and are inspiring. You've come a long long way, and get a long distance hug from me on all your accomplishments, both physically and the new positive you that you are projecting through your site. Best wishes! Keep it up.



  88. 88

    well if anything this proves that being in great shape does not make you more attractive when you're ugly inside. If anything now you're more of a bitchy queen because you think you're hot. At least before you didn't think your shit didn't stink.



  89. 89

    I think he looks great, especially considering how far he's come. I don't care if he comes off as bragging, needy, self-centered, or whatever. Most people don't get this far in their weight loss quest, even if they DO have the money for personal trainers, nutritionists, chefs, etc. So, congratulations Perez for making a promise to yourself and sticking to it!

    That said, I think it would be appropriate to reveal the cosmetic procedures done thus far to help you along. With a weight loss that dramatic, surely there was some sort of excess skin removal? A little lipo here and there (diet & workout will never touch certain areas so why not?!), etc. I don't see any shame in admitting it. I'd just like to know the "whole" story.



  90. 90

    Great abs! Now, please work on your grooming.

    I have to agree- the real reasons behind this are transparent.. to satisfy your own ego so you can ignore the numerous self esteem issues which you exhibit during your many unprofessional tirades.

    Congratulations ! Choosing a healthy lifestyle and working out is great for both the physical and mental aspects of life. I am a firm believer of that!

    Congrats again from a Canadian forces member!



  95. 95

    An interesting observation. Almost every one of the "positive" comments comes from people whose profiles you can't click on, so you can't see how many posts they have mad on the site. Generally that will tell you if it's a made up account. My guess is either Perez or someone he hired comes on here to post the positive stuff about him…with a few exceptions, there are some fans of his on here, but mostly the people who post something positive look made up.



  96. 96

    Better than the creepy video dancing in your underwear with your mom at least.

    Honey, you need to stuff that Speedo in the front. It's just embarrassing.



  97. 97

    Re: raypearson – You have to be happy with yourself before you can be successful in a relationship. Perez might have a secret boyfriend.. we don't know him

  98. Stephen says – reply to this


    98

    Now, did you have a personal trainer? Was it hard changing your diet immediately? I've put some weight on over the past three years and I wouldn't say I'm obese or anything but I'm really really uncomfortable with myself lately. One, you look great. I can't believe the change in your body from 2007. You look like a different person and you look healthy! I mean, you have abs! And two, what's your exercise regime and what would you tell someone to do everyday if they wanted to make sure they got some kind of exercise in. Congratulatons Perez. I'm happy for you. And I agree, when you're healthy you're healthier. Maybe that's why I'm so down lately! I need o get healthy!



  99. 99

    You look great sweetie! Congratulations!



  100. 100

    Re: SteveIsHot – Despite your personal feelings regarding Perez or any individual, I am dismayed that you would suggest to another to 'kill yourself' - lack of character is the ugliest of traits and cancels any real of self-proclaimed 'hot'ness.
