Ruben Permel won Oxygens weight-loss dance competition this past Monday (Aug. 31) after dropping more than 74 pounds boogying to the beat.
As he shed the weight on TV, Permel could feel his body dramatically changing.
Everytime hed hit the dance floor there were less rolls to rattle, and less overall jiggling and rubbing.
He says the best part was feeling his face thinning out and finding his neck again, which was lost in his former 317-pound frame.
Costume fittings were also telling of his weight loss.
Permels performance get-ups had to be taken in daily sometimes hours before showtime because the inches were constantly melting away.
Since the show wrapped, hes continued shaping up and will reveal his new bod September 7 during the DYAO reunion on Oxygen.
