In November 2019, Paolo Benjamin of OPM band Ben&Ben took to Instagram to post a close-up picture of himself with the caption, "Brb, gonna lose weight." Two years later, he posted the exact same photo—except this time, it features a cover image showing off his leaner, healthier body.

In his caption, the musician wrote, "These pictures represent years of hard work and sacrifice. Today, I just wanted to celebrate this growth with all of you. Thanks for being there to cheer me on at my lowest moments. I hit my goal weight this week, finally."

"If you are on a path of growth, do it out of love for yourself and do it for the people you love. Never do it just to please others, because it will never be enough. You are enough."

Serving as an inspiration to his followers, Paolo shared more words of encouragement for his fans who aspire for the same fitness goals: "You have so much to offer to the world. I know you're working hard. You got this. You're not alone. I'm rooting for you. I'm with you."

He ended his post by proudly flaunting his "awesome" stretch marks that remind him of his past self. He shared, "In this picture, I also celebrate my stretch marks. Cause they're awesome. I also celebrate my past self, because he's awesome too."

In previous posts, the musician documented his fitness journey, which included activities such as bike riding, weightlifting, and running. According to Paolo, he went from "not being able to run straight for two minutes, to conquering 21 kilometers."
