What’s going on, everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Daily New Year’s Podcast.
Every other Wednesday I love delivering life-changing, exciting, and actionable content to people just like you—people who could be doing anything right now, but you’re here, investing your time in this podcast.
I Zoom with interesting people—people far wiser than myself—about how they came to be where they are today. Success, failure, strategy, trial-and-error, inspiration, motivation, focus—I like to cover it all so that you can apply life lessons from people around the world to your own life, and today I’m going deep with Tyler Christensen.
Tyler slowly became overweight over the course of 20 years and woke up one day to find himself in the “morbidly obese” classification. His wife was concerned and had an intervention with Tyler. She was concerned about his health.
“It wasn’t because I wasn’t trying—it wasn’t because I didn’t care about my wife or my kids—it’s because I hadn’t found the right formula for success yet. And so, I recommitted to her that night, ‘okay, that I was going to make some changes in my life.'”
And make changes he did. Tyler struggled for several months as he looked a the successful weight-loss formula and when he found it, he lost 102 pounds in one year.
Weight loss, health, and fitness look different to everyone, but in this episode, we’re going to explore Tyler’s story, talk about his failures, and dig into his successes.
Are you ready for a surge of inspiration? Are you ready to hear Tyler’s incredible story? If so, let’s go!
