Future Marine recruit loses nearly 150 pounds in 8 months to join the Corps | Marine Times

In March, Tyler Nelson had walked into the Marine recruiting station in Mankato, Minnesota, with the dream of becoming a United States Marine.

But weighing in at nearly 367 pounds, Nelson was well over the maximum allowed weight of 246 pounds needed to ship to recruit training.

Over the course of the next eight months, Nelson’s drive and motivation for the chance to earn the title Marine had pushed him to shed almost 150 pounds.

Now weighing in at 220 pounds, Nelson is slated to ship to the recruit depot in San Diego on Dec. 10, where he will stand on the yellow footprints that will herald his entry and official transformation into a Marine.
