Ryan Tucker: Eastern Iowa Biggest Loser

Posted:
DENVER (KWWL) -

Ryan Tucker and his wife Kayla are living the "American Dream." The two are high school sweethearts from Sumner and they have a highly active 2 year-old son Colby with their second child due sometime this summer.

Along with his growing young family Ryan has a rewarding job as a funeral home director in Denver. A hard worker--a good husband and family man--Ryan Tucker still had one big issue weighing him down.

Ryan said, "I've been a big guy the majority of my life so I haven't known anything different.. Looking back its hard to believe how poor I was feeling not even knowing at the time."

 Ryan believes at the time he was 65-70 pounds overweight.  And while he wasn't experiencing any major health problems, he knew something had to change.

Tucker said, "I wanted something that was going to stick."

Because of his busy family and work schedule, Ryan decided to find an exercise plan that allowed for flexibility, so he chose P90x.

Ryan said, "That was a 90 day program and I probably lost 40 pounds.  It was still a gradual weight loss--nothing drastic--after that I've gotten into running and some other things too."

Kayla Tucker says a very good father and husband got even better.

Ryan Tucker has a simple message to others who want to lose weight.

"My message would be to do something every day to better your health.  You might plan to work out for an hour but only have a half hour.  Just do it just get out there and don't stop."
