    Wow! Outstanding results…congratulations on continuing to earn your health. I am currently down 75lbs with another 60ish or so to go and I am inspired by you to recommit.

    Thank you for sharing your journey!

  2. Dave Elliott says:

    Well done, very good result for the week! Not sure what my results will be for this week, since I was travelling for 24 hours and didn’t get to exercise and had to eat what I was given on plane! Hopefully I can make up for the that during the 2nd half of the week.

    Keep it up dude, you will be below 200 soon!

  3. mw180 says:

    That’s fantastic! Keep it up! Gotta get at least one workout on the weekend.

  4. Tara says:

    Amazing! Remember when you first started and it was only about losing 100 lbs? Now look where you are! What a year this has been! Keep up the good work!

  5. Dan says:

    Nice work, a jump like that must feel good. I’m very happy you are within reach of your goal…only a few more weeks hopefully.

  6. Krissy says:

    Awesome job! Way to step up your game and post a great loss! 4.4 also happens to be my loss for the week. Sometimes all it takes is a minute to refocus on the goal at hand and the decision to make it happen!

  7. Penelope Spiker says:

    great job, now I have to work harder to catch up with you!

  8. Beth says:

    Awesome weight loss this week! It sure helps when you stay on track- it is way too easy to eat too many cheat meals.I know- I have to re-lose 7 pounds.

    Oh to be able to eat 2100 cals! I have to stick to 1400 a day.

    Keep up the awesome job!

  9. beej says:

    Holy Moses, Ty! Kick butt. I knew you’d pull through this week. I hope this great loss propells you to another year of amazing results on your journey. Inspirational and transforming, it is. Keep it up. (And at least my money’s safe this week!)

  10. Kyle says:

    Congratulations Tyler! That is a fantastic achievement in itself. Be proud of yourself. Your ultimate goal is getting closer and closer by the week. You WILL get there!

  11. Gigi says:

    Fantastic job, Tyler! You show what can be done without pills, potions, trainers…just good old-fashioned “stick-to-it, get it done” attitude.


  12. chuck says:

    Congrats on the most recent 4.4 pounds and for the overall 1 year journey. Your words and success are very inspirational. I would bet you that your success will ultimately spur 1000’s of pounds of weight loss to all that follow you. Keep up the good work and continued success.

  13. Misty says:

    Congrats on your 52 week results!!!
    Your journey continues and with each day you become closer to the person you want to be. That is what we should all work toward, everyday! Thanks for your example!!
    Hope you got the rest you needed and are refueled for the day!!
    My thought for the day—- MAKE TODAY COUNT!!!

  14. Kathy Evers says:

    I have read alot of blogs and all are the same. Yours stands out for its honesty, dedication and special touch. Like you said you have to earn your life. I get goose bumps reading your blog. Thank you .

  15. Nia says:

  17. Andrew says:

    Awesome job! Congrats on hitting the 1 year milestone too.

  18. Greg says:

    Congratulations! I only just started to read your blog after seeing it on CNN. It has renewed my motivation. You said you spend 30 minutes at the gym everyday in your latest entry. What do you do in the amount of time?

  19. Kelly says:

    Happy One Year anniversary! I have no doubt that you will keep this up. Thank you for being an inspiration – to me and to so many others!

  20. Hollie says:

    Congrats! You are such an awesome inspiration!

  21. Susan says:

    Way to go! You’ve earned everything you’ve gained (lost?)! You’ve gained health, knowledge, self-esteem, and so much more. You’ll make your goal weight keeping on this positive track.

  22. Lance says:

    Congratulations! You are a great inspiration and motivator. Thanks for the blog!

  23. Britty says:

    I think it IS time to celebrate!!!! Amazing!!!!!!!!

  24. Rebekah says:

    That’s so awsome! I weighed in too, and I’m down 8 pounds! Get some sleep finally!

  25. Craig says:

    Great loss!!! You’re doing so good, as usual. You can do it! 11.8lbs–you got this!

  26. Brandon says:

    That’s a great loss for this week, and amazing loss for the year in total. You’ve worked amazingly hard to get where you are at, and as you said yourself, the results are very well deserved.

    Congrats, and keep it up!

  27. Congrats on the AWESOME weigh-in! I’m so excited for you!

  28. Katie says:

    Congratulations! What an achievement. You have had quite a year. The things you have learned and put into practice will work for you for the rest of your (now much longer) life. Now, go hug that sweet wife and baby- and get some sleep!

  29. Jen says:

    Have to admit that I’ve been a lurker (yikes!) on your site for a couple of weeks and just had to offer up my congrats to you! Your journey is an inspiration to many and with every pound lost you gain confidence and insight. I am inspired not by your numbers as much as by your willpower, reality with the struggle to lose (focusing on how none of us are perfect!), and your ability to stay so humble and modest despite all of the fame (!) and attention. Congrats, congrats, congrats!!!

  30. Leah says:

    Congratulations, Tyler. You’ve worked hard and made many “sacrifices” along the way – high calorie weekends is just the latest one. Soon, you won’t even miss it.

  31. Steve says:

    Wow…kickass, dude! Congrats.

  32. Matt says:

    Outstanding! You pulled out all of the stops this week.
    My loss has slowed down from the 4-5lb losses, and I’m hitting about 1.5-2.5 now.

    Down 118 as of yesterday – size 38″ pants now:

  33. Tom says:

    Way to go! Its amazing to see the shrinking man! I wonder though? What about all the loose skin? I know you have researched this, but I hope you could do another post dedicated to what you have found. All you hear about is surgury, but that is pretty drastic….

    Follow my journey from the beginning.

  34. two says:

    Right on Tyler! You kicked butt this week!!!! Hope you get some rest soon. Sounds like all the press is exhausting!

  35. Amy says:

    Wow. WAY TO GO Tyler! You are such an inspiration! I lost 4.8 pounds this week. WOOHOO!

  36. Kericia says:

    Congrats Tyler. I know about hard wrk and sacrifice. But when you see the results it is so worth it. Good work!!

  37. Cory says:

    Congrats! Celebrate just a little and then get back to work 😉

  38. AndrewENZ says:

    Great effort and here’s to another year of success.

  39. Marna says:

    Nice job! I’m sure you hear this all the time, but you are an absolute inspiration. You are taking this on yourself with focus and commitment and that serves as a reminder to me that I have it in me to become what I deserve to be too. It’s not going to happen by itself, which seems obvious, but it’s the basic first step in realizing that action must take place before change will occur. Keep it up. Enjoy the journey and thank you for what your efforts mean to me and others like us, who want to make a change!

  40. Ashley says:

    I’m so proud of you! You’ve really changed your life forever, and you’ve extended your life span and improved your health tremendously.

  43. Melissa says:

    Absolutely spectacular!!! You’ve done it the old-fashioned way, no fad diets or craziness. Just good common sense.

  44. Brandon S. Adkins says:

    O SNAP. After smaller losses you hammered it this week!
    That’s awesome!

  45. Allison says:

  46. Coll says:

    I didn’t want to get up this morning to work out, I thought of your blog and how well you’ve done and jumped up and got it done!! You’re awesome!!!!

  47. Jerilyn says:

    Congrats! I’m stuck on a god awful plateau and I’m not sure why. Somebody suggested that I was spending too much time in the gym but I honestly don’t see how that’s a possibility. How can you spend too much time in the gym?

  48. Jaclyn says:

    Hey Tyler! One year of dedication. One year of perserverence and persistence. One year of committment to what you will ever be your habitual lifestlye. I bet youll never forget 2009. I bet youll remember it as the year that changed your life. Im proud, your fans are proud, you wife is proud, your family is proud. You are moving a nation just by sticking to your word.

    p.s. I appreciate you placating my insistence of not replying to me, but I can see you already have almost 50 others to get to tonight. bless your heart, your too nice for you own good!

  49. Mickey K. says:

    Happy Anniversary my man! Here’s to continued success!

  50. Charity says:

    Tyler, congratulations, you have done SO WELL! I’m so happy for you!!! What a great example of health you’ve set for your daughter!

  51. jill says:

    Congratulations!! I’ve been reading you since you were on CNN – It’s such an inspiring story! I’m at 8 of a 25 pound goal and, having lost 30 pounds about 6 times, know very much how difficult it is!

    p/s – please don’t worry about emailing me back… go be with your family or catch up on some sleep!

  52. david foust says:

    Dude you get me pumped. no elaborate comment. Just jacked.

  53. Jill says:

    Congrats to you! I’ve been trying to lose 30-40 lbs. for several years now. It’s embarrassing. I’ve finally decided to go to the gym 5-6 times/week instead of the 3-4 that I was doing before. I’m hoping that will help. I noticed that you also go to the gym 5x/week and you lost weight, so that gives me some hope. You’re a normal guy losing weight. That’s why I like your blog. Thanks.

  54. kate says:

    F%$kin A man. That’s great!

  55. JayLoss says:

    Great job! I started at 336 myself and I’m at 246 right now, working on my first weight loss challenge. The thing that works for me is counting calories and working out 4-5 times a week. That’s the only way I lose weight.

    Great job guy, keep it up!

  56. Kat says:

    Congratulations Tyler. You have done an amazing job this past year. You are an inspiration to me!

  57. Tyler says:

    Good luck on reaching your goal!

  58. Tyler says:

    Thank you for reading my journey!

  59. Tyler says:

    I never thought of it that way, Chuck.

  60. Tyler says:

    Those are really kind words, Kathy.

  61. Tyler says:

    I’m so glad you commented, Jen! Please continue to do so, I love reading the feedback!

  62. Tyler says:

    Great before and after pants shot!

  63. Tyler says:

    I’ll put up a post soon about loose skin. It’s definitely in the works as we speak.

  64. Tyler says:

    That’s a massive loss, Ashley! Keep going.

  65. Tyler says:

    HAMMERED, son, indeed.

  66. Tyler says:

    That’s actually possible, Jerilyn. I’ve had the strange experience of going to the gym 5 days in a row and only seeing small losses every day, to maybe skipping a day (and still having a clean diet) and having a bigger drop in the scale.

  67. Tyler says:

    Unfortunately, I simply can’t reply to all of these comments (already breaking my policy, I guess) — I do, however, have the time to respond to those who have questions/concerns for me.

  68. Congratulations on your weight loss successes!! I think it just goes to show that a little hard work and perseverance goes a long way! Your journey is one of inspiration! 🙂


  69. Shelli Belly says:

    Tyler, I’m so happy for you. You posted 211 on my comment and you did it. Congrats!

    Arg! I was 1 pound from your 344 but I did loose 4 this week. I’ve lost 10lbs since the New Year. Hee Haaww! Thanks for leading the way.


  70. CONGRATS!!! Your journey is such a motivation for many people as I’m sure many people, your readers, are a motivation for you. I’m looking forward to the final results!!!!

  71. BossyMommy says:

    T, you amaze me every week, whether it’s a 4 pound loss or no loss at all. Your attitude and determination remain constant, regardless of the numbers on the scale. You are a blessing to so many. Great job this week, as well as the other 51…and counting.

  72. Kilo Bravo says:

    Way to go Tyler!! You have inspired me. Keep up the awesome work dude!
