Featured on CBS Affiliate WLTX

I had a fantastic interview with Michael Benning of local CBS affiliate WLTX earlier today.  Other than my need for a tanning bed, it turned out pretty well:

Cliff notes:  Eat right most of the time.  Eat not so right some of the time.  It’s fine to enjoy food, but in moderation and always accompanied with exercise.

The story and corresponding video above has been posted on the station’s website, WLTX.com, with the video airing tonight on the news at 11.

If you’re stopping by for the first time from WLTX, you should learn more about me.  You might also be interested in taking a look at my before and after pictures and perhaps becoming a friend of mine over on Facebook.

Lastly, subscribe to the blog to get new posts delivered via e-mail.  That way you don’t have to check the blog on a daily basis, just your e-mail as usual.

While it might seem like my journey is almost over, it’s only just begun.  I hope to see many of you around the blog and Facebook/twitter over the next coming months as we continue to transform our lives together.

  1. looking good Tyler! Glad to see you getting some recognition for all the hard work. I love 5 guys also, but man, I can’t go in that place now – SOOO Tempting! lol

    Hope you are doing great!

  2. Tyler,

    Hello from right down the road! Just saw your story on WLTX. I’m actually in the process of starting my own trek back down the scales. I had an idea for weight loss similar to what you are working with, however, it was not as nearly polished or well written.

    Even though i’m sure you already know this – you are an inspiration to those of us who think we’ll never have just one chin again.

    Thank you for your blog, your record of events and your expressions. Good luck on your continued achievements.

  3. Great interview! I try to live by your cliff notes every day. I wouldn’t be able to live on salad for the rest of my life either!!!

  4. Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude. Ditch the nautilus weight machines!

    Get some free weight action going. There’s too much isolation in those machines – if you do a bench press on the machine, it works your arms and chest. If you do it with free weights, it works your your shoulders, your abs…even your legs as you steady your body and try to balance the bar.

    There so much more benefit, especially if your goal is to get strong, to using free weights. A bicep machine works just your bicep. I never carried in a sack of groceries with just my biceps.

    I highly recommend stronglifts 5×5. It has you doing 5 reps of 5 exercises each session that give you a total workout. These are the ones you alternate between.

    Squats, bench press, overhead press, inverted rows, pushups, reverse crunches, deadlifts, pull/chin-ups, and prone bridges.


  5. How exciting for you! I’m so proud of you and glad that you’re getting your message out there.

    I’m getting ready for my close-up, though it’s not CNN. Kansas City Fitness Magazine contacted me to do a feature story on my weight loss and Hospital Hill Run is doing a media piece on me as well. It’s kind of exciting.

  6. Tyler you look great andf I love that you show that you can still enjoy the not so healthy stuff. People who are successful know that 80 percent of the time you eat the good for you and 20 percent you eat the it tastes good. You reinspired me to loose the 10 lbs I had gained since I originally lost the 100. Its so good to be back on track and moving in the right direction. Although thats the other half isn’t it…. Moving! Great Job!

  7. You definitely have the right path! I totally agree that it’s okay to eat “unhealthy” sometimes. Believe me, college is great, but it’s too hard to give up all the junk food, and if I did, I would have quit months ago. Keep it up! You inspire me every time I go to the gym to push myself further!

  8. What always kills me about the doctors saying “don’t do this” is the fact that they do it themselves. Find me ONE doctor that never has something fatty, salty or sweet EVER. Even vegans have their treats.

    1. No kidding, Kate. My Mom has worked in hospitals for years and years, and the things I could tell you. But, the one deal that I found most fascinating is that one of my Mom’s really good friends (an ER Doc) is a …SMOKER! A chain smoker, no less. Crazy.

  9. Been following your blog since it was profiled on The Consumerist. What is else is there to say? You’re a fooken bad-ass! Great work, great inspiration, great everything!
