Tyler Baltierra: I'm Getting Rid of My Dad Bod!

by at .

It's been a rough few months for the Baltierra family, huh?

Or a rough few years, depending on how you look at it.

You could even say the family has had a rough few decades, thanks to Butch's lifelong battle with addiction, but let's not get too deep into the sadness, all right?

No, instead let's focus on these past few months -- basically from November until now.

Because it was in November that Catelynn Lowell shocked us all by revealing that she was suffering from suicidal thoughts.

In some heartbreaking tweets, as well as a statement she released to a few media outlets, Catelynn said that she'd been considering multiple ways to kill herself, but that she was able to reach out for help before following through with her plans.

The same night she made those statements, she and Tyler hopped on a plane to Arizona, and the next morning they got her checked into rehab -- the same rehab she used during her first mental health crisis in March of 2016.

She stayed in treatment for several weeks, and there was even a point where she checked out early, only to realize that she needed more help.

She went back to Arizona, and she went back home just after Christmas, when she'd completed her program.

Unfortunately, she still seems to be struggling, and earlier this week she announced that she'd be heading back to rehab one more time.

"Well they say third time's a charm," she tweeted.

"I'm going back to treatment people for 6 weeks to work on my trauma and getting on different meds."

Sadly, she got some criticism this time around from people who accused her of flying to a luxury treatment center in Arizona to get away from things instead of to work on herself.

To those people, Catelynn tweeted "YOU DONT KNOW EVERYTHING IVE BEEN THROUGH! Quit acting like you know what I should be doing or shouldnt!!"

"I'm NOT running away from my family! Those are the people I love the most!! You ppl are ignorant."

It's a lot, right?

But while there's a whole lot of unpleasant things going on right now, there's at least one upside to it all.

And that's that Tyler has been taking the time to take care of himself!

To recap real quick, Tyler's been putting on some weight for the past several months.

Which is fine, obviously, it's his body and he can do what he wants with it, but he's acknowledged his weight gain himself.

In October, he posted this selfie on Instagram, along with the caption "Don't let this face fool you, I have a major dadbod now!"

"I just haven't decided if I care yet hahaha!"

At some point recently, he decided that he did care -- he and Catelynn agreed that when she got out of rehab this last time, that they'd work on their health together.

That included eating healthier foods, exercising more, and cutting out alcohol and marijuana.

Cate definitely seems to be dealing with some heavier stuff right now, so she probably hasn't had a chance to really get heavy into the fitness stuff yet.

But Tyler has!

He posted this shocking before and after photo last night, and in the caption, he explained that he'd lost 26 pounds in the past five weeks.

"26lbs DOWN!!!" he wrote. "To be honest, I didn't even want to take a before picture, because I was already thinking of me not sticking with it & then having the evidence of failure to look back on."

"But DAYYUMM dude! This got me feeling some type of way right now!"

"Dayyumm dude" is right, Tyler!

He's obviously feeling himself, but he has every right!

"Left picture was almost 5 weeks ago & Right picture was today," he explained. "Eating healthier just feels better & obviously looks better hahaha lol BOOM!"

We're so glad he's feeling good about himself, and here's hoping Catelynn is able to get to a place where she can do the same!
