Dad is completely unrecognizable after excess skin is removed from 300-pound weight loss

It's hard to believe this fit and healthy father once weighed 460 pounds -- but after losing a whopping 300 pounds and undergoing excess skin removable surgery, he's completely unrecognizable.

35-year-old Zach Moore from Pierson, Florida, told InsideEdition.com that when his wife became pregnant in 2007, he started ballooning in weight, too.

Eventually, Moore says his weight got so out-of-hand that he decided to go through with gastric bypass surgery.

Following his procedure, he and his wife Amber embarked on a journey to lose weight together, including quitting smoking, drinking soda and eating fast food.

And by the looks of it, he was beyond successful!
