It didn’t even take 10,000 hours.
Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay began the new year by revealing shirtless before-and-after pictures of his 50-pound weight loss.
“Consistency. I transformed my entire world in just six months. No tricks or trends. Monday, the 31-year-old said on Instagram, “Just consistency.”
He said, “If that exhausted guy on the left can do it, so can you.”
In the “before” photo, Mooney stood in front of a mirror wearing only a pair of black Calvin Klein boxer underwear to display his bigger figure.
In contrast, in the “after” selfie, he wore gym shorts to showcase his newly toned physique and appeared to have lost about half of his body weight.
Mooney began “eating clean, abstaining from alcohol, and walking seven kilometers per day.”
Several fellow country artists commented on the page to applaud Mooney’s accomplishments.
You ought to feel proud! Carrie Underwood wrote.
Brian Kelley, a former member of Florida Georgia Line, responded, “Freaking getting it, man!”
“Hell yeah, brother,” added Cole Swindell.
Country singles by Mooney and his bandmate Dan Smyers include “Speechless” and “10,000 Hours.”
Mooney earlier stated on social media that he decided to lose weight since he “could not recognize” himself.
On December 2, he stated, “I reached a level mentally and physically that I will never return to.” “It is important what we consume. Who you spend your time with is important. What you choose to spend your time on is important. I am very grateful to the individuals in my life who assisted me in making a shift. No one compelled me to do this. I desired a life transformation for myself.”
Mooney and his wife Hannah Billingsley are the parents of Asher and Ames.
At the moment, the “Speechless” singer added, “I’ve never felt more alive.”
Last October, Mooney disclosed in a different post that he lost weight by “eating clean/not drinking alcohol and walking seven miles per day.” In addition, he included “some weights” in his workout.
The Grammy-winning musician and his wife, Hannah Billingsley, are expecting their third child together.
