    I believe it! If you can eat whatever you want over the entire weekend and lose not even a pound, you’re doing something okay! Keep up the good work boy!!!

  2. Steve says:

    I gotta agree with Jason, you “cheated” 1/3 of the week and you didn’t even gain an entire pound. Thats pretty indicative that you are still pretty much doing something right. I don’t think you’ll have any issue getting under 220. It’s understandable to be hard on yourself, but, you are still down 120 pounds in 38 weeks. Nothing to scoff at.

  3. Jason says:

    Tyler, please post calorie counts for all seven days so we can chastise you earlier 🙂

  4. Tyler says:

    I don’t think I’ll be doing that! I need some freedom from the blog, don’t you think? 🙂

    I wouldn’t fret about it too much, I went from 307 to 195 over the course of 18 months. I do daily weigh ins/Body Fat check. I have my own system that says if I am over my goal weight three days in a row with no decrease (or increase) in BF% then I am “running high” which means I need to watch my intake for the next three days. The weekends are always the hardest for me. If I normally “ride high” on Monday and/or Tuesday. I have a self calorie limit of 2250 but, I don’t work out. 223.4 is no where near 344 ! You’re doing great and thanks for sharing your story.

    What I mean is… if you omit 2 days from your calorie count posts (Saturday and Sunday) then the whole point is lost. Just keep track and post your calorie count for the week on Mondays and have it cover last Monday – Sunday.

    Otherwise, what’s the point? That’s like saying to the IRS, “Sure, I’ll show you my tax return except for the parts where I cheated on my taxes!”

    Oooh….good point, Jason! How you gonna argue with THAT, T? Hmmm???

    Well, the horse is that way. Get back on it.

    Also the less weight you have to lose to reach your goal the harder it becomes. You’re down to the last 20% of your goal so this is the mountain climbing time. Some people spend years on the last 5/10/20 lbs. Jason’s right about the calorie count too since the weekends aren’t freebies. Aaaand I hate to say it but the holidays are approaching so those weekend calorie counts are going to matter even more in a month.

    If anyone can do it, you can Tyler.

    .8 pounds is nothing and you’ll be to 220 in no time.

  11. Tyler says:

    I think you mean gain, but in any case, I know exactly what you mean. It does feel good, but I’d still like to lose weight, you know? I’m done with gaining weight.

  12. Tyler says:

    Definitely not. Nice blog!

  13. Tyler says:

    The IRS can put me in jail. You can’t. So there.

    I see what you’re saying, but it’s work counting calories. I like to relax on my weekends and not have to worry about anything.

    With that being said, I’ll think about it.

  14. Tyler says:

    100+ pounds lost? That’s amazing! I like that system, I imagine I’ll have something very similar to it. It’s like a warning weight or something of the sort that represents a red flag, showing you that you need to start making changes to your diet/lifestyle immediately.

  15. Tyler says:

    You’re exactly right! I don’t plan on spending years on the last 5/10/20 pounds, so if it means giving up a day on the weekends where I can’t eat like junk, so be it.

    And yeah, I’m well aware of the holidays coming. I’m very fearful, but with a little willpower, I should be alright. We’ll see.

    I recently finished power 90 and I am moving to p90x on monday – I have been following your story and have been wanting to ‘catch up’ to your weight. I am currently at 228 down from 292. I recently got a gowearfit device and being the geek I am – I love seeing the numbers. The other night I was jogging in place @ 11:30pm to make sure I hit my 3600 a day calorie burn goal. Crazy but it seems to motivate me.
