SYTACUSE, N.Y. — A man who once weighed nearly 700 pounds has lost more than 400 pounds with the help of Taylor Swift.

Syracuse.com reported that 28-year-old Ronnie Brower considers himself the biggest Taylor Swift fan. But the New York man weighed 675 pounds back in 2012.

He said he got so big by excessive drinking, eating and pill-popping. A doctor told him he had about 10 years left to live and he started working out.

Last month, Brower accomplished his goal of getting down to 250 pounds. He would listen to Taylor Swift for inspiration. One of his friends is now taking him to a Taylor Swift concert as a reward.

Brower’s progress was documented in the YouTube video below. Check it out.
