Recruit who dropped nearly 150 pounds to join the Corps is now a Marine
By: Shawn Snow  

Tyler Nelson says he now weighs about 204 pounds ― that’s 163 pounds lighter than when he first tipped the scales at 367 pounds during his weigh-in at his hometown recruiting station of Mankato, Minnesota. (Tyler Nelson)

Tyler Nelson shipped to Marine boot camp in December 2018 after shedding nearly 150 pounds throughout an eight-month period.

Now, he’s officially a Marine.

Nelson graduated Friday with Charlie Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, aboard the San Diego recruit depot.

He says he now weighs about 204 pounds ― that’s 163 pounds lighter than when he first tipped the scales at 367 pounds during his weigh-in at his hometown recruiting station of Mankato, Minnesota.

 Good for him!  It's hard becoming a Marine and hard to lose that weight that quickly!
