    I’ve only been reading your blog for a month or so, and I really enjoy it! Your writing style is so inviting that you honestly make me feel like I am part of a bigger weight loss team. You got a head start on your weight loss goal by about a year from when I started, but you are definitely giving me something to strive for, and I thank you for that. Good luck tonight!

  48. Lisa says:

    Your story gives me hope! I learned yesterday that I have a BMI of 40. As I look ahead to a new life and start to live in a healthier way, it helps to have inspiration from people like you.

  83. Here’s to a great workout tonight! Hopefully my :45 seconds (comment + twitter add) puts you over the top for your weigh-in goal tomorrow! 🙂

  84. I’m also already a Twitter follower…are you going to show me the love on that w/ more time?!?

  85. This is called piling it on! I showed you link love today by adding you to my blog roll AND posting about this workout pledge. Hopefully that’ll crank up your workout time somethin’ good! Here’s the post:

  86. Joey says:

    Here’s a comment AND a link on my blogroll. Check it out! That’s 1.25 minutes so get to running!

    Is that speed setting in mph? If so, you should move down the incline and move up the speed to 5.0 mph. I actually ran that today!

  87. Josie says:

    Well, I’ve been following you on twitter and facebook for some time now, and you were one of the first on my blogroll. So it looks like the only entry I can make is this one comment. Good luck tonight, you’ve inspired me to make my own workout pledge in the next couple weeks.


  88. Tera says:

    Good luck!!!

  89. Scott says:

    YAY!!! Seriously, I found this blog months ago, but after reading through all the old posts, I wanted to wait to subscribe to you until it would actually count! (I accepted the fact that I’m kind of a masochist a long time ago lol.) Just did Facebook, Twitter (344pounds & 344food, plus a link ha!), and email. What will I do without having to keep an open tab dedicated to your blog now? Good luck tonight and remember to stay hydrated.

  90. Tom says:

    Good luck – there are already 96 posts – I make 97.

  91. Jess says:

    5.0 incline and 3.6 speed (the incline I can do….. I’ll try the speed:)

    we can do it!

  97. Lisa R says:

    Well, it’s 4:30pm West Coast time, so I missed the deadline, but still… good luck!

  98. Tyler says:

    This reply is a reply to everyone — thank you SO MUCH! I’m heading to the gym right now to do 93 minutes and 30 seconds of cardio!

  99. Lizz S says:

    15 more secs.
    You are such an inspiration, i hope you know the impact are having on everyone who comes to your site. Glad I could be part of your last workout pledge!

    your weight loss is an amazing success story!

  101. Tara says:

  102. cmoursler says:

    Dude, don’t know if it’s too late but

  103. ty says:

    this is a comment

  104. Great post and great idea, wish I would of read it earlier so my comment could of counted! Hope you did well!

  105. Zebulon says:

    Awesome job Tyler! You are amazing bro. I started reading your blog about a week ago and have since began my own weight loss journey. Thank you for sharing your story and encouraging others to lose the weight!

    God bless.

  106. Tina says:

    I think I am to late, but GOOD LUCK anyway!

  107. Charlie Altman says:

    I am more than aware that I am too late to add to your workout pledge, I just wanted to say good luck. And although it wouldn’t be encouraging to your readers, your blog would be more appropriately named “1in344,” because that’s probably the correct statistic for people who endeavor to do what you’re doing. You have won the lottery, statistically speaking. I have, before, lost and maintained my target weight, and recently gained it back. Your blog has helped to refocus me, and although I did not win the powerball tonight, I hope to soon achieve something as statistically improbable…losing weight, and keeping it off.

    My comment tonight was not meant to discourage anyone reading this, but hopefully to add some focus to you, Tyler, whenever you needed it. You’re an inspiration, and fortunately and unfortunately for you, your weight loss is now sometimes not so much about you, but about being a beacon of hope for others. Thousands of people will read your blog and fail to do what you’ve done, and very probably, that list includes me. I will scratch and claw and fight for that not to be the case, but I will not delude myself into thinking it’s not a possibility. Maybe the possibility of failure will be the great inspiration, for me, that your burger king breakfast was for you.

    Good luck, Sir.
