  2. cher says:

    haven’t written until today. just wanted to let you know we’re rooting for you here in Colorado!

  3. I’m glad you’re back. This is a big bump in the road, but I’m glad you’re staying on track. I don’t know if I’d be able to do the same.

    Keep it up.

    You can do this Tyler, I know you can. Now you’ve got an angel to push you just a little bit harder when you want to slow down. Turn that treadmill up a tenth of a mile or two.

    Your family is still in my prayers.

  5. kate says:

    Completely understandable considering the circumstances. You’ll get back on track. Just refocus and use the exercise for peace of mind again.

  6. Holly says:

    I’m so sorry for your loss. You may already know her, but another blogger I like to read recently suffered a surprisingly similar loss just days before her goal. If you feel it would be inspiring at all, you can read about her here: http://www.priorfatgirl.com/

    Tyler I have all the faith in the world that you will hit that glorious 199 mark. You are truly my inspiration for starting to workout and starting my own blog. I am grateful to you and I’m sure I am not the only one. Your dad must have been so proud of you and your accomplishments. Keep on truckin :)

    Welcome back, Tyler. I think that considering what you’re going through, you’re still kicking butt.

    And sorry, but don’t do it for us; do it for you and your family! And please, please, please take all the time you need (though It’s always great to hear from you!). Hang in there, man.

  9. Tyler, so good to hear from you and know that the words of comfort from your readers were, indeed, comforting. Losing your dad is a huge blow, but I know you are a survivor. I also know your dad must have been SO proud of you for what you are doing; what better way to honor his memory than to keep up the good fight? Be kind to yourself, love on your family lots, and know we’ll be here for you no matter what.

    Hey Tyler,
    Haven’t been keeping up to date, and just saw your tweet which lead me to read about your dad. I can’t imagine how you felt but I agree with everyone else’s comments and am sure your dad was very proud to see the man/husband/father/inspiration you’ve become.

    Praying for you and the family, and calling my dad asap.
    -Will

    We all know you can do it. You are a machine!!!

  12. Michelle says:

    Welcome back Tyler!! Although all of us would of understood if no weigh -in was presented today (At least I hope people would of understood) I’m personally happy you took the time to do so. It shows your commitment to this journey in your life, it also shows your motivation. Your dad is smiling down and should be very proud of his son.

    Hopefully you will take some time to go through all the emotions you feel, we’re here with you through the entire process, whether it be anger, or smiles.

    Take good care!

  13. You’re a resilient guy, Tyler. I’m not sure I would have the guts to get myself back to blogging as quickly as you have, but that just goes to show you how strong you are as a person.

    I’m sure your Dad was a huge part of your life, as mine is to me now, and I really can’t imagine what you’re going through, what you’re feeling, etc.

    The weight gain here is expected, I would think. It should be the last thing on your mind right now.

  14. Tara says:

    Even in our darkest days we find some light in the comfort of others. You’ve given us so much during your journey, it’s nice to know that our thoughts brought you some light.

    You will definitely own 199 by Wednesday!

  15. Charity says:

    Wow, that’s so cool of your sponsor to send flowers. That’s incredibly decent.

    Glad to see you back. Take care! xoxo

  16. BossyMommy says:

    Love you, too, T. Next Wednesday is the day.

  17. lori says:

    your honesty and the way you go about your life is beautiful –

  18. Rebecca says:

    You’ll get there next week. You and your family continue to be in my prayers!

  19. Tahra says:

    You’re going to make your goal, Tyler. It doesn’t matter if it’s next week or not. You and yours are in my thoughts.

    Tyler,
    You and your family are still in my prayers. I lost my best friend and sage of a Father, 8 years ago this April 16th. I was 24 and weighed 400# the day he went. He loved me be on words and was soooo proud of me. Still I knew I was a worry to him. I have, since his passing lost 165#, and had two beautiful little boys(none before). I feel his love and inspiration daily and know that he is still watching, guiding, and proud of me to this day. God bless you and yours. I pray you will find comfort in knowing you have and will continue to make your Father proud.

  21. Ninabi says:

    Tyler,
    Your father must have been so proud of you. I’m so sorry you lost him.

    Your weight loss journey continues to be an inspiration to others. Thank you for continuing that effort in the face of an awful loss.

  22. Jeanessa says:

    We’re with you, Tyler!

  23. Ann says:

    I just left the gym…..I thought about you as I struggled on the treadmill. I’m with you there, and in prayer for your loss.

  24. Sheri says:

    Sorry for your loss, I lost my mom in September so I know how you are feeling. I have not lost weight in over 4 years, but this week I vow in honor of your journey to lose 3.8 pounds right along with you this week. Thanks for sharing your story with all of us. See you on Wednesday.

  25. Kyle says:

    You can do it Tyler! Your dad will certainly be watching down on you, cheering you along the way. I’m sure he is very proud.

  26. Patty says:

    Tyler,
    I dont know you .. will probably never meet you. I wanted to tell you i come here every day to get inspired.. While i do, i always fail with my own weight loss effort at some point during my day. I envy your strength and that of your readers, i envy your determination and effort. I pray for you and your family at this time and as usual am still in awe that you are doing all this with such a heavy heart.
    Wish i had half of the one you have.

  27. will says:

    Glad to have you back, buddy. Cheering you on as you move toward breaking 200 :-)

  28. Morgan P says:

    Cheering for ya from Oregon!

  29. Jerry says:

    Tyler – I hope you are doing well. I am happy to see you so determined. God Bless.

  30. Jack says:

    Hey Tyler,

    I know how tough it is to loose a dad as I lost mine. Hang tough. God bless you and your family.

    Love ya man,
    Uncle Jack

    Tyler,
    I left for Mexico the day you posted about your dad and didn’t get it until I went to check in on your weigh in. As I have commented before after losing 100 myself the last part and mainating it are the hardest parts.

    After I found your blog you re inspired me to start again and stop the slow downward slope I was on and gaining speed. I went back and was up 14 lbs from my “goal”. In two weeks I lost eight but also knew I was going to Mexico. I came back read about your dad, went to the gym and cried. These events will knock the wind out of us. But hold on because it is easier to let go and let loose then to hold on tight and get back to it. YOUR DAD WOULD BE SO PROUD.

    I am also back on, weighed in after Mexico and up 5 lbs. I knew it and it was worth it. But back in the saddle and doing it again. I am so blessed to have found you and this blog. I cannot wait to see the good news next wed and will share mine on Thursday. =D

    I cannot imagine the sense of loss you must feel. I’m sorry and I believe your attitude toward moving in a direction of acting more responsibly from here on out is wonderful.

    Your father must have had a great sense of relief, watching you turn your life around by taking care of yourself to insure a better, longer life.

    I believe he can see you now. A good friend of mine in High School, Mary Lee Jones, skiied on the Cross Country Ski Team. She had lost her father as a young child. I remember her telling me how hard it was to ski up a steep hill during a race when she had already been giving it her all during the length of the course. She told me she would often imagine she saw her father at the top of the hill, encouraging her ski on…

    You do look young in your photos, but at the same time you seem really mature and even though you are young enought to be my son – I admire you. Please continue to be strong for your own family as well as your dad.
