    Anyone know how you get your photo to appear? I am absolutely clueless!

  7. Matt says:

    Maybe you should *plan* to find out!

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    Seriously, idea.

    Tyler – you should get this one and make it a convertible.

    I plan to run another half marathon this year, finish my certification as an MT next year and then run a full marathon. I plan to run at least one marathon a year thereafter until 40 – when I plan to start doing triathalons. I plan to work in a hospital as an MT while working towards becoming an SBB by the time a start triathalons!

    Retire at 55 for starters. But the more recents plans include paying off credit cards and getting more active. MOre long term I want to rebuild a camero with my boys. I know nothing about cars but how hard can it be? 🙂

    I am really tired of saying and hearing “when this happens, I will start x…. (fill in the blank). It’s all about baby steps!

    I plan to graduate from college in 7 weeks. Then, this summer, I plan to lose my last fifteen pounds and to donate a kidney to my father. After that, my husband and I plan to start a family, and I plan to be the best stay at home mother I can be. I am so excited.

  11. Molly says:

    I plan on being 170 pounds by the end of the summer. Funny thing is that I’ve always dreamed of what it is like to be skinny- now I don’t want to be skinny but healthy. I think dreaming of wanting myself to get in shape has helped to push myself that yea you can dream, but if you don’t DO- then nothing will happen and your dream will never come true. Work hard- it pays off.

    Ps. Love the color of the mustang. I have always wanted one too. Maybe when your book comes out you can splurge on that mustang 😉

  12. Candal says:

    I plan to stop denying the fact that I’m not even dreaming anymore, I’m making excuses.

    I plan to weigh what a healthy 24 year old who happens to be 5’3″ tall should weigh. I plan to get back into my ‘skinny’ jeans. I plan to wear a bikini, some day, but some day soon. I plan on looking good in my wedding dress.

    I read that if you write down your goals and see them everyday (on the bathroom mirror, on the fridge) you will accomplish them. I plan to do that, today.

  13. Petchy says:

    I have already achieved some of my plans – like reaching a normal BMI (just), running 5k in under 30 minutes, having a normal relationship with food, starting my own business and running it successfully… I have more plans though! I WILL run a 12.5k race (without walking parts of it) in July, and I WILL run a half marathon in 2011 if not before. I will learn to be happy with my body. I will find a wonderful guy and have a couple more children. I will move out of town to a nice house with a nice garden… Loooads of plans in other words 🙂

  14. Go to

    It’s a globally recognized avatar system. That’s how I got my photo to appear. Pretty cool, and free.

  15. First off, I will always be a dreamer. ALWAYS. But, that’s just me. Maybe a reason why I’m such a huge sci-fi geek as well, eh?

    BUT, it’s what you do with your dreams. And, whether you take chances or not. I wouldn’t have my job at ESPN if I didn’t take the plunge way back when, same with my exercise passion Jiu-Jitsu.

    Courage comes in all sorts of ways, big and small.

    Love the entry, though, and know what you’re saying. You’ve got to take that step into the next part of your life, from dreamer to planner…I see that.

    It’s still okay to dream, though!

  16. kate says:

    Speaking of planning, how long do you plan to post your weight as you maintain?

  17. Rebekah says:

    I want to be able to run with out my belly flapping up and down.

    I want to be debt free
    I want more children…and to be healthy while being pregnant
    I want to be able to pay for my children’s college

    I plan to wait till Tyler gets that Stang and ride around with him! 🙂 Shelby’s are incredible!

  19. Julia says:

    I plan on losing 30 pounds by mid-September.
    I plan on getting a Master’s Degree in Counseling.
    I plan on making more money so that when my boys go off to college I can help them financially.
    I plan on moving this Summer.
    I plan on calling home to Mom this week-end.
    I just got a Summer job! (I work for the School District) and plan on working hard and paying my bills.

    I plan to ride the Rip Cord at Worlds of Fun in KC without worrying about the cord snapping in two.

    I plan, in the next few seconds, to let you know that it’s bean”stalk.” I’m just sayin…

  21. Tyler says:

    I put beanstalk. What are you talking about?

  22. Tyler says:

    I’ve never ridden in a Shelby, just a Mustang — used to own one. I love every minute of it.

  23. Tyler says:

    Who said anything about maintaining? I’m not going anywhere. I’m not going to have a maintenance weight for a while, I have a lot more work to do.

  24. Tyler says:

    You know what I mean. It’s one thing to dream about being Han Solo, I dream about that all the time — but it’s another thing to dream about how you wish your life would turn out.

  25. Tyler says:

    That’s the plan. 🙂

  26. Tyler says:

    There you go. Sorry I couldn’t respond faster!

  27. Tyler says:

    That sounds like a solid plan. Good luck, Alisha.

  28. Tyler says:

    You’re right, you have to earn it. I wrote this blog post at midnight last night. I could have gone to bed, but I didn’t. I chose to put the work in, write another blog post, and hopefully reach a few more people who might be out there not quite motivated enough to start their weight loss journey yet.

    I want people to know that now is the best time to start anything. If you have 100+ pounds to lose, the life awaiting is unbelievable.

  29. Tyler says:

    Bill Murray owns the local Charleston River Dogs team.

  30. Tyler says:

    I have some big goals in 2011, too. I’ll be posting them soon. It’s going to absolutely blow you away! 🙂

  31. Paul says:

    I plan on taking care of myself for a change. I have always been one to care for others and that is why I went into nursing later in life…..

    So my plan is to get off the couch…… Not only be inspired, but be an inspiration at some point…. and to fight this fight!!!

    I also want to skydive… and at my current weight I can not….. so that is a plan as well.

    Thanks for your inspiration!

  32. Tara says:

    Here’s my plan:

    Get up every morning and no matter how tired I am and head to the gym. See a trainer 2 x week. Get stronger. Run farther. Swim faster.

    Do a 5k
    Do a 10k
    Do a Half Marathon
    Do a Marathon.
    Do a Triathlon
    Do an Ironman

    Rinse Repeat and Teach others to follow!

  33. Mom says:

    how did you get so wise?

  34. Stephanie says:

    I plan on doing a half marathon and one triathlon this year.
    I want to get pregnant (fingers crossed) after i get a job when i move to the UK in a month.
    I plan to be a great mum, a hard worker (that comes naturally) and an awesome wife.
    I plan to live with in my means. I have no debt and would like to stay that way.

    Good luck with your plans Tyler.
