A hiker walked 2,600 miles from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail and displayed his amazing weight loss in a four-minute video.

Andy Davidhazy, 47, from Texas, set off on the trek in 2013 and decided to snap a photo of himself at every mile.

According to the Daily Mail, by the end of his hike he had lost 50lbs and got through five pairs of shoes.

In a video posted on YouTube, Davidhazy is seen looking more rugged and slimmer as the reaches the end of the challenge. It shows the change of landscape and scenery.

On his blog, Andy noted his accomplishments on the trip, which included:

2700+ total miles hiked
5 1/2 months total time
4.5+ million footsteps
4900 pictures taken
2 shin splint injuries
5 pairs of shoes
1 wolverine
5 black bears
Dozens of rattlesnakes
Countless scorpion and marmot.

In 2012, a retired British couple put the nation's youths to shame when they walked 1,424 miles all the way from Shropshire to Italy.

Mike Higgins, 61, and wife Janet, 65, were inspired to start walking after they were given a pedometer as a gift from their daughter.

The ultra-fit pair took 148 days to walk from their home in rural Shropshire to an apartment they owned in Lake Garda, Ponte Caffaro in Italy.

The couple walked through four countries and clambered up to a height of 20,319ft when they crossed the Swiss Alps.
