Perez Hilton loses 80 pounds, shows off his dramatic new look!

I'm not usually a jealous person but, looking at Perez Hilton's sexy new abs, I can't help but feeling a twinge of oh-man-I-want-those.

Famed snarky celebrity gossip blogger Perez, a.k.a. Mario Lavanderia, made jaws drop when he showed up at LOGO's 2012 NewNowNext Awards with an open blazer and some seriously toned abs.

I remember when his website first started--back then, he was well known for his chubby look. I personally always thought he looked adorable, like a fun, bitchy, older brother with crazy hair. Now that he's gotten a lot fitter, though, I really admire his commitment to get healthier.

Although the 34-year-old blogger hasn't confessed how much weight he's lost, by the looks of his fab new physique he must've lost between 70 and 80 pounds since he began his new regimen back in 2008. Some have said that he's gone under the knife to get his new look but I can tell you he hasn't. Not because I know him personally, but because I know that getting a gastric bypass to lose weight doesn't take 4 years for results. If he'd gotten weight loss surgery, we would have seen his fabulous new body a lot sooner.

He's admitting to what he DOES do, though, and it's all about portion control and gym time—two key elements for both weight loss and for keeping it off afterward. He tells Huffington Post's Gay Voices:

It wasn't quick. And I worked for it! I'm STILL working for it! In fact, I'm working much harder on my fitness now than when I first started this journey.

I'm super inspired by his work-out journey, in particular by how he's working harder and harder every day. I think we can all take some much-needed advice from his book and work on it. If there's one thing I learn every single day ever since I lost weight is that keeping it off takes even more work. Perez, with his great new body, is certainly proving that hard work pays off. Don't you want to have abs like his, too?!
