Featured on CNN

cnn 300x145 Featured on CNNMy mother is going to be so upset — she wanted my first big network interview to be with FOX News (kidding, I love you mom).

I was interviewed by Producer Steve Almasy last week via telephone.  It took about 45 minutes and Mr. Almasy asked me a myriad of questions, the answers to which you can find on CNN.com.

  1. 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.


  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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!!
