    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.

    WooT!

    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.

    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.

    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.

  23. kate says:

    *like

  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!!
