    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BlackTy says if you never experience hardships how would you ever know how good success feels.
    - JacqueCNN, CNN iReport producer

    My name is Ty. Im 28 years old and ive lost over 135 lbs !! Its been a difficult task but through prayer and the motivation of wanting to be around for my daiughter i have learned how too look within myself and find the motivation to push myself and reach heights never imagined. I workout 3-4 hours a day, i work 3 jobs to support my girlfriend and my baby girl London. They are my drive and my support system on this eight loss journey. Even though its a little embarrassing showing my before photo i feel it can help someone meantally and physically who wants to lose their weight. We all need a little push in the right direction. I can only hope that my story is heard !!
