    Wow, way to go! You should absolutely write a book – you’ve got a great story to tell, and you tell it so well. I’d buy it!

  2. Merry Mary says:

    You should write a book.

    Is that your big project? Hehe.

  3. Tyler says:

    I like your blog, Mary. I like your blog.

    Moving along. 🙂

  4. Tyler says:

    Thanks, I like hearing that!

  5. Kyle says:

    Wow Tyler, congrats on getting under 210! I would certainly read your book if you wrote one!

    I lost 2.6lbs this week, and I’m now at 247.6lbs. Plateau is over, and under 250lbs milestone has been reached! Do you remember if this was around the weight where you noticed 3-4lb weight losses to be a thing of the past? As I get closer and closer to the ultimate goal, the harder it is to face that I might not see that type of loss anymore.

  6. BossyMommy says:

    Yes, T. I think that’s a fine idea. 🙂

    208…look how close you are! So, so, so proud of you.

  7. suzanne says:

    I would definitely buy your book 🙂 You are such an inspiration to me!

  8. Jillie says:

    Having marathoned your blog a couple weeks ago I can confidently say I would also read a book! You are truly an inspiration, Tyler! I’ve been working hard over the past few months and managed to drop from 146 to 127; this blog is helping me to work through my plateau. You’ve reminded me that a bad day (or week) is no reason to throw it all away, just set it aside and keep going! I also really liked how you set gym time in the “have to’s” of life, synonymous with going to the bathroom… it doesn’t give me any room to budge. Going to the gym during an Alaskan winter is often a process from starting the car to scraping ice off it and dashing through the cold and I HATE it, but I can honestly say you’ve helped me through it. So glad I stumbled upon your wisdom 🙂

    Fantastic!!!!!!

    What to hear something cool? I know you do 🙂 I went clothes shopping for the first time since forever. My pants were getting a little to big for me (okay they were falling off). I went in wearing a size 24 and came out wearing a SIZE 18w.

    Tyler, a size 18!!!

    You were the first person I thought of to tell. Serious! Is that weird? Of all the people I knew that would understand how awesome of a feeling this was, I knew you would.

    Word!

  10. Congratulations on another awesome loss!

  11. Katie says:

    Congratulations, Tyler! And I will pre-order your book on Amazon as soon as you let us in on the title…..;)

  12. david foust says:

    Tyler. Its inspiring to see you so committed. Any plans for the summer. This new body needs put to good use. Rock climbing, hiking, kayaking. Lets get outdoors!

  13. Melissa says:

    You have an awesome story. Seriously, I hope you do write a book. You could help so me people reach what they thought was unattainable. Oh…and I’d buy your book = )

  14. sara says:

    Now, you should totally do that, but I wonder – have you thought about making fitness your career? You’re so good at it, I bet you’d make a great trainer.

  15. Stop teasing us with this book talk and tell us about your big project! 🙂

  16. Jill says:

    How will you celebrate when you get below 200?

  17. Chrissy says:

    Hey Congrats!!! I have been following you from NY for a few months and am very impressed!

  18. Dave Elliott says:

    Congrats mate, well done! Hoping to get down to 224 in the first half of this year and then see what happens – 35lbs to go – cmon!

  19. Coryad says:

    Congrats on the weight loss! And do it, do it!! Write a book! I would buy it 🙂

  20. Steve says:

    Yeah, you’re totally writing a book 😛

    Great job this week!

  21. Jerry says:

    Great job! I think it would be an awesome story to tell, and I think it would be a great way to show your daughter how determination and hard work pay off. I would deff. add it to my book collection.

  22. beej says:

    Sweet! getting so close to being under 200! Wow, won’t that be amazing?! Congrats, man!

  23. Denise says:

    Whoo Hoo!!!

  24. Sassy Cassy says:

    A book – what a great idea – YOU SHOULD REALLY GO FOR IT!! Reading your blog really inspires me to work harder at losing my weight! THANKS!!

  25. Frank says:

    Hey Tyler,

    Nice job on the weight loss. There are a lot of guys that wonder how they could ever do anything to get the results that you have gotten. Very impressive.

    Frank

  26. AndrewENZ says:

    Great to hear you’re still losing!

  27. Jaclyn says:

    Tara! Thats awesome! 😛

  28. Jaclyn says:

    You could title it “Tyler the Tank: A story of loss”. 🙂 High Five Tyler!
    Jaclyn

  29. Merry Mary says:

    HAHA!

    Moving along. Okay. Right, right.

    Or should I say write? ;P

  30. Rebekah says:

    A book would be awsome! I’m currently sick as a dog and wonder if you went through any cold/flu bugs during your weight losss and how you worked through it? I’m still watching what I eat, but have no energy for exercise. Any suggestions?

  31. A book would be cool, very cool.

    I had the same idea, but you’ve been at this weight loss stuff much longer than I have been. I can tell you though, nothing like having your stuff appear in print. I have been a professional fantasy sports analyst/writer for the last seven years and still love the feeling of knowing I created something with my own words. I’m more behind the scenes now with ESPN, but it’s a great feeling to see your stuff in print. Hopefully, you can go that route and get a book written and published.

    You can easily turn your experiences into a book that someone will want to buy. I’d buy it. A great inspiration you are.

    Freakin sweet!

  33. Shelby says:

    Your progress is seriously inspiring but I guess you get that a lot. I’m looking forward to having the weekend to really dig into some of your old posts and see how you have accomplished what you have and how you’ve handled it on those weeks when the scale hasn’t been your friend. Great job.

  34. Cindy says:

    Your journal just as it is would make a wonderful book. It is so real and easy for people to relate to.

  35. KellieD says:

    Hey, Tyler. The pressure to write a book for others to read can be overwhelming. I do think you should write about your weight loss journey, but write it as a gift for your daughter to read when she is older. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t publish or let others read it. I just think it would be easier to write if you were “telling the story”.
    Way to go on being so much closer to where you want to be!

  36. JayLoss says:

    Good job on the weight loss, I think my long term goal would be to write a book as well. I’ve written a few already on other topics, might as well do the weight loss thing. 🙂

    Good luck and keep it up!

  37. Jeff Levine says:

    Keep it up Tyler! Today (Friday) is my weigh in day and I am now down 104 since May 29, 2009

  39. Rachael says:

    Yeah, you should totally write a book. I will buy it!

  40. Tracy says:

    Another book buyer here! Can we pre-order?

    And, Sir, got some caffeine mints to try…. Since I am not a big fan of anything minty, went for the Penguin cinnamon ones. GAAAAAHHHH!!!! GROSS!!!!! Ok, NOT GOOD. Gave up and swallowed them. I knew that learning to do shots of JD in college would come in handy some day…. Though I did tear through my cardio and accidentally went waaay over my target heartrate. WAY over. Mints or *singing while working out? I’ll blame the mints.

    *no worries, all by my lonesome at home. Not even my dogs had to endure that. That’s why one should CRANK the tunes.

  41. Very inspirational. Maybe I can say the same someday.
