  2. AndrewENZ says:

    Fame at last eh. Well done.

  3. Steve says:

    Don’t give him any ideas, Dan!!!!!

    Congrats, Tyler. I saw your comment about CNN on Jack Sh*t a few days ago, was wondering when the story was going to post.


  4. beej says:

    Yeah, man, Ty. Can I get your autograph?? j/k This is super cool. Great job getting the message out.

  5. That is awesome! Congratulations!

  6. Annette says:

    So great to read your article. I’ve been following your blog for a few months now and have definitely used you as inspiration on days when I’m not feeling on top of my game. Keep it up!

  7. Titanium says:

    It’s great to see a dynamic success story shared by someone who charted their own course and is refusing to succumb to the diet-craze. Well done!

  8. Marvin says:

    just found your blog because of the CNN article. Cool stuff! It’s nice to see that you’ve been so successful with such a common sense approach.

  9. Scott says:

    How come you never get big exposure in the middle of one of your challenges? I, for one, would love to see just how sadistic CNN readers can be.

  10. Hayley G says:

    I too read the article on you in CNN. Congrats, I think that’s really cool. I’m looking forward to reading your posts and following along. You’re very inspiring in a “real” way rather than just another quick fix kind of way. Enjoy your moment, I’m sure it’s not going to be your last.. (if that makes sense??!!) LOL.

  11. Tyler says:

    I don’t think anybody would pay.

  12. Tyler says:

    You’re all coming with me on my ride to Hollywood.

  13. Tyler says:

    I couldn’t keep it a secret forever, I found myself blurting it out over the last few days. The last 20 hours have been pretty amazing.

  14. Tyler says:

    You know it, it’s in the mail!

  15. Tyler says:

    Thanks for visiting Marvin! Hope to see you around more often in the days and weeks to come.

  16. Tyler says:

    Because I plan it so I don’t. I’ve spent 3 hours on the elliptical/treadmill before in a pledge, I don’t ever want to do that again.

  17. Tyler says:

    I’m enjoying it, but it’s filling up my inbox pretty quickly! I plan on replying to every single one, it just might take a few weeks.

  18. Tyler says:

    Appreciate the comment, Titanium. Nice website!

  19. Tyler says:

    That’s what the blog is here for! I appreciate you following the blog, and hope to see you comment more often from now on. Thanks, Annette!

  21. cara says:

    Read your CNN article and just checked out your blog! Congrat’s! I enjoyed reading about your success and struggles.
    I have had a weight prob. my whole life and had a lap band surg. about 2 yrs ago. I’ve lost 130lb but now that I only have 40 more to go I am fighting for every pound and need to step up the exercise also… trying to get started running. Never imagined a day that I would say I wanted to run!!!
    Thanks for sharing your story!

  22. Cory says:

    I can say I knew you when LOL! Congrats Tyler! You are proving that it’s “move more, eat less”. Period.

  24. Jess says:

    Wow congratulations on your year! You’ve inspired me to try to lose 100 pounds in a year and get healthy. You look amazing!

  25. Fuzzy says:

    Wandering over from CNN as well. Want to give my congrats as well, but it’s very helpful to hear from more testimonials like yours – someone getting healthy because of a whole LIFESTYLE change, not just some fad diet or pill that 99% never stick to/work out. You sound like you have a great realistic (not just simply positive) mindset about your goals as well, not beating yourself up every other day about a natural flux.

    I keep a healthy weight and outlook by cooking my own foods from scratch that I love to eat – even if they seem like “unhealthy” foods (cookies, stir-fry, pizza, etc) – and even that makes a difference. Not only are you working to make your own food, you control what goes in it.

  26. Congrats Tyler, that is awesome! :)

  27. Tyler says:

    I’m actually on the homepage of CNN.com right now!

  28. MJ says:

    This is exactly how I have kept my weight in check for many years. Congratulations! Like you and your basketball, I have cycling and it helps a lot.

    Good luck to you!

  29. Shelli Belly says:

    Yep! I knew you when. You’re article was so spot on. Over Christmas break my mother couldn’t believe that my plan for the new year was to workout and eat within a 1500 calorie range. She suggested a program of some kind or even surgery. Well I’m going to stick to this plan espeacially since she gained 10 and I gained an .8th of a pound during my Christmas vacation. HMMMMMM I’ll take the freedom within moderation. Thanks for your continued inspiration.

    Thank you for your supportive comment on my blog. :) I’m so happy to have found your blog and feel so much better knowing all I have to do is watch my moderation of food I want and love eating. You’re awesome!!
