    You are an inspiration to us all, Tyler. Losing 2 pounds in 2 days shows that you had a lot of water retention from all of that salt. I am sure you will be back to 212 pounds in no time and then into the 20x’s! That’ll be amazing to see. I started reading your blog when you were 300+ pounds and it’s been SUCH an amazing journey.

    Don’t ever quit blogging!

    Awesome work! Christmas cost me 7.8 lbs. Back to the daily grind!

  4. Steve says:

    I’m losing…finally 😛 Not back to my lowest yet, but I’m close!

    Congrats on the loss, 2.2 pounds in 2 days is kickass. And congrats are being back on the news, can I get your autograph?

  5. Dan says:

    Nice work. This time of year is funny, because on one hand people are all motivated to make changes, but it also is a time when bad habits and holiday foods linger. Any plans to pack on some muscle when you reach your 150 lbs lost goal? or are you more of a runner/triathlon guy?

  6. Katie says:

    Tyler, any way for us to watch you online? I went to the site yesterday and couldn’t find you.

  7. Joy Manning says:

    Running advice, not that I’m an expert. I think you should try running for 4 minutes then walking for 1 and repeat until you hit a mile. Or maybe run 3 walk 2, whatever you can do reasonably comfortably. That’s how I started back in July and now I can run 5.

  8. Brandon says:

    Great work, you’re an amazing inspiration. I’m sad to say that I’ve only recently found your site, but it has inspired me tremendously. I started out my own weight loss program, beginning at 280 pounds on January 1st of this year, and as of today I’m down 5.8 pounds.

    Keep up the great work!

  9. AndrewENZ says:

    Great stuff. Keep it up!

  10. Nick T says:

    im surprised you cannot run a mile at your weight. i weigh 226.5 after losing weight from 296 since last may (33 weeks, 2.1/lbs a week). i run for 15 minutes at 6.5 mph twice a day, and only recently started to watch what i have been eating as the weight loss has slowed. i would suggest watching your heart rate when you are working out on the elliptical to make sure you are reaching your target zone

  11. Adrianne from Dallas says:

    Congratulations! I’ve been telling my husband for years it’s not what he eats but how MUCH.
    People always ask me how I’m so thin, and I simply say, I don’t eat that much. I can definitely put it away, but like anything, NOT eating too much just becomes habit. What I also find helps is to SLOW DOWN when one eats. What I’m trying to instill in our kids.
    I LOVE food, but am not obsessed with it.
    Also, my advice to every one is to NOT drink soda. I am convinced after years of not drinking it (felt it was kinda rotting me from the inside) that the lack of it in my diet has contributed to my staying slim. Even diet sodas, which has been proven recently not to my surprise.
    If people paid more attention to what they’re shoveling in their mouths, they’d probably be mortified.

  12. Tyler says:

    Yeah, it looks like a lot of it was water retention as I suspected, but I don’t like putting the blame for my weight gain on salt, gaining muscle, etc. I take my gains like a man.

  13. Tyler says:

    Those are some unreal before and after pictures. Keep up the good work, Eric!

  14. Tyler says:

    The daily grind is good, though!

  15. Tyler says:

    Sure. And you posted this before CNN — if you only knew what was coming 🙂

  16. Tyler says:

    I’m not a runner/triathlon guy, I’m a muscle guy. I’m going to get some a couple of guns to lug around with me.

  17. Tyler says:

    You can watch it live, but I don’t think you can watch it after the fact. You’d have to be up next Tuesday morning at 5:15 or at 6:15 (for my second interview) and then click on the WATCH LIVE link on the homepage.

  18. Tyler says:

    I’ll start doing that, Joy, and let you know how it goes by commenting on your blog.

  19. Tyler says:

    Thanks for the comment, Brandon! I’m glad you found the blog and wish you well on your journey. Good job on the 5.8 pounds lost. The first week you’ll your biggest gains, but you shouldn’t slip too far from that for the next month or so. Keep up the intensity and I could see you losing 3-4 pounds a week for the next 2 or 3.

  20. Tyler says:

    Thanks for the comment, as always Andrew!

  21. Tyler says:

    I’m surprised, too. I think I might be getting bored on the treadmill or distracted or something, not so much that I’m physically incapable of running a mile.

    Know what I mean?

  22. Tyler says:

    Well said, Adrianne. Soda is an absolute terrible, terrible thing and it’s best to avoid it all costs. It does absolutely nothing good for you and a myriad of bad.

  23. Matt says:

    I’m a newby here, but my girlfriend told me about this site a while back. Your progress is truly inspiring! I just recently started watching what I eat and exercising regularly. And I agree…soda is terrible. I think I’m addicted to the stuff. It is very hard to get that out of my diet. Keep it up!

  24. Porkchopz says:

    I would recommend the Couch to 5K program. I was never a good runner, but now I have completed my first 5K and am on my way to graduating from an 8K program.

  25. Mike Barker says:

    Good for you. I’m just getting started on my journey. I weighed in this past Tuesday at 282.2 which is the most I’ve ever weighed. I’m 40 and just 5’8″ . I’ve tried all the diets before and this time I’m just trying to pay attention to what I’m putting into my mouth and I’m counting the calories. I’m on the wagon until I start losing some serious weight and can start adding in some exercise. My goal is to lose 100lbs this year. Thanks for the inspiration and good luck in the future.

  26. Chris says:

    I was at 291.5 in July, ’09, and I decided a change was needed. It’s amazing how my dietary habits are very similar to yours; I didn’t go on the “grilled chicken salad” regimen. Instead, I reduced my calorie intake – I still enjoy the foods I love, just less of them. Now I’m down to about 234 and loving every minute of it!! You are an inspiration – keep up your great work!!
