Brian Wilson says he is dropping big numbers off the field in a bid to make big numbers on the field.
The Yambuk batsman lost a staggering 31.4 kilograms during a six-month period heading into the Grassmere Cricket Association season.
Wilson, who finished unbeaten on 36 in his side's impressive win against Woolsthorpe last weekend, said his dramatic weight loss had already made a big difference.
"I am feeling fantastic, I have never felt better. It is just life-changing really," he said.
"We are only round two so far, but on the weekend we chased down a big score and it was nice to be among it at the end and help get us over the line.
"I have definitely noticed a big difference playing cricket, especially getting between the wickets is easier when you aren't carrying around an extra 30-odd kilos.
"In the field I stand at first slip so I don't need to move around too much, but bowling I am back off the long run which is about six paces instead of three, but it has been great."
Wilson, who is also the club president, revealed he initially topped the scales at 158.8 kilograms and now weighs in at 127.4 kilograms.
The country week representative said his off-season transformation is the result of a nutrition program which he labelled a "shake diet".
"It has been more of a lifestyle change for me, just breaking bad habits and creating new habits," he said.
"It was a bit of a battle at the start getting used to those new habits, but I am on the right track now.
"I lost nearly 20 kilos in the first two months where I did nothing exercise wise, I just changed my diet and have gone on from there.
"But I have started going to the gym more and I am obviously doing cricket training now. I still want to lose about another 20 kilos and then we will reassess then."
The 34-year-old, who had made 106 runs and took 10 wickets last season, said he is hopeful his weight loss effort will see him experience more success with the bat this year.
The Yambuk larrikin said he believed as he continued to drop more weight it would result in more runs being made and wickets taken.
"I just want to continue to improve my game," he said.
"I had a shocker last year so it will be good to be able to get through the game and know that late in the day's play I still have a bit of energy to go.
"So just the growth in energy is a big difference and I am flat out and more active all day and then have more clarity later in the day which helps.
"When you get to later in the day when you need to concentrate the concentration is still there and you aren't thinking about what is winning race seven or race eight."
