He recently reflected on his weight loss when he told his followers: "Hard to believe it was 20 years ago today, I wore these size 54 Levi jeans to my #gastricbypass at 340 lbs and here I am today. 

Al has been working incredibly hard to stay in shape 

"It's still a struggle but I'm never going back. I have setbacks and struggle every day, but I never forget how far I've come." 

Al has spoken in the past about his struggle to lose weight and the impact it had on his marriage to Deborah.

In an article for Today, he wrote: "My wife is a size 4; she runs, she works out and it became a problem in our marriage. On a Saturday she’d get up, get dressed to run and I’d be sitting on the couch or making breakfast for the kids.

"She was upset about it, she was frustrated, she was angry. She thought, 'Why don't you care enough about yourself and why don't you care about me and our relationship enough to change?' And I said, 'Look, it's not about you. It’s about me.'"

Al has now been at a happy and healthy weight for years with a balanced approach to eating and a manageable exercise regime.
