    Dude, you would be a good candidate for the health insurance debate in this country. I started out at 410 lbs and lost to 290. But I have gained back to 315. Your blog and mydailyplate are helping me finish the job. Keep up the good work. I can run .75 miles now, and I go to the gym 5 days a week. Thanks for your blog man.

    Gratz on the nice drop! The nurse in me would still like to see that 92 edge down a bit, but the systolic number is great. Might be even lower whenyou’re feeling better. Do you ever check the machines they have in grocery stores? Gives you a general idea of what’s going on.

    Congrats! That’s awesome!

  4. Leah says:

    Congratulations, Tyler. This is why you started this journey, and why you’ll keep it up. I’m so proud of you.

    Congrats on those really solid bp numbers. My wife used to have borderline high-ish blood pressure, in the 125/90 range. A couple of years ago she saw herself on a road towards blood pressure meds and she didn’t want to take that road. So decided to step up her exercise and mind her diet more carefully. By the next year’s appointment: 110/75.

    Tyler, your numbers are wrong. I was there last week when the nurse said 103/72. Those numbers are better than the ones in your post. 🙂

    I love wives. Always keeping you boys in check. Good on ya, Tyler’s wife. (o: I kinda miss being a wife and correcting my husband. Wait. Nevermind. No I don’t.

    Way to go!!

    After I lost my weight and went in for my annual physical, I was so thoroughly happy when my doctor read off the ‘good’ numbers. It’s such a feeling of accomplishment.

  9. Brian says:

    Congrats on much better numbers – but like Larkspur said, I’d still watch that lower number. That’s still pretty high. And wow.. 145/120, the 120 is like stroke city. I’m glad you got it down. Keep up the great work! I started at 371lbs myself (2 months ago) and I’m down to about 332lbs right now. I found your webpage last week and really enjoy it. 🙂

  10. Tyler says:

    I’ll take a reading tonight and find out for sure!

    I just wanted let you know, I have been a long time lurker.
    Anyway, congrats on the healthy blood pressure numbers. That is a HUGE thing toward living a longer life.
    I hope to get my numbers down soon too.
    thanks for the inspiration.

    Good job! That is wonderful to hear 🙂

  13. kate says:

    Congrats on the healthier heart. Also I’m sorry to hear about your insurance issues. I just lost my job on friday and hence my insurance. The situation is just ridiculous in this country.

  14. Vincci says:

    Woohoo! It’s always nice to see when people who are losing weight are reaping the other health benefits as well. I agree 92 as your diastolic is a little high, but if you check maybe once a week, or month, depending on what it looks like you should get things back on track 🙂

  15. Josie says:

    Wow, see….that’s what I’m looking forward to. Seeing your progress quantified like that has got be SO rewarding.

    Congratulations, you’re such an inspiration!

  16. Ruby Lembach says:

    Congrats! You are amazing, and you tell this story so well! Keep up the wonderful work!

  17. Coryad says:

    Congrats on getting that number down 🙂

  18. Tyler says:

    I appreciate the kind words. I’m terrible at telling stories, I tried really hard telling this one without looking like a bumbling idiot!

  19. Tyler says:

    It is. I love knowing that I added YEARS to my life.

  20. Tyler says:

    I won’t touch that subject with a ten foot pole, but I do know what it’s like to live without health insurance and it’s absolutely not fun. It’s scary, it really is. I hope everything works out in the end.

  21. Tyler says:

    I’m going to keep monitoring my blood pressure on a monthly basis and post updates here. We’ll see!

  22. Tyler says:

    I really appreciate your comment, Don. I hope to see you comment more often! 🙂

  23. Tyler says:

    I’m glad. It is stroke city, it’s one of the major reasons I started losing weight in the first place.

  24. Tyler says:

    Thanks for reading my blog, man. I won’t touch that debate, but I will say being uninsured is no fun.

    Glad that you’re losing weight, too! Keep up the progress man, the ride is so worth it.

  25. Tyler says:

    I didn’t, but I’m definitely checking them from this point forward. I’ll keep you posted on my levels from time to time, rest assured!

  26. Tyler says:

    AWESOME! 110/75 is phenomenal.

  27. Tyler says:

    Oh. You were right, wifey.

  28. Will says:

    All the fun and kidding aside, that’s amazing, Tyler. I can’t help but think about the added years you’ll have with your daughter, and someday her family. You couldn’t put a price on what you’ve done. I know you’re still working towards your goal, but I’m already excited to see what you’ll do next. You’re destined for great things!

    Way to go! I actually just got off of blood pressure meds this week myself. I had been mildly hypertensive and I have lost 87 pounds since January! Keep up the good work and keep getting the word out about sensible weight loss.

  30. bossymommy says:

    Uh, T. You didn’t need to go to all the trouble of posting that. We knew.

    We knew.

  31. bossymommy says:

    T—what in the hell are you talking about? You have a gift. You are a fantastic storyteller. And with me to edit your grammar and spelling…you’re dern near perfect, I say!

  32. Cliff says:

    I was going to say that the 92 was not good, still way too high, but then you corrected it to 72, and that number is good.

    Keep up the blog. It is fun to read, and you provide good common sense advice. We all know that to lose weight, we need to eat fewer calories than we expend, but good to be reminded.
