    Glad to hear you’ll continue sharing your journey with us.

  2. Man, piano would be awesome. So would guitar. And, don’t forget martial arts…talk about a demanding adventure.

    I had a setback this week, but am more determined than ever now after realizing how out of control I was this past week. Ugh.

    I know you’ll get below 200lb at #67!

  3. MizFit says:

    you are so right.
    all of this is one goal in many in the sense that, for me, nothing is over till IM OVER 🙂

  4. Al says:

    Those are cool plans. Good luck with this weeks weigh in.

  5. Kyle says:

    I agree. It will be a HUGE accomplishment once you hit your ultimate weight loss goal, but the journey has just begun! I look forward to reading about your continued progress Tyler. Not only with your weight, but with your life.

  6. Jennifer says:

    Ok seriously, this is YOUR FAULT as you put the song in my head
    love the kickball option and of course the dancing and all of the brilliant ideas….

    glad that you have re-gained your “look out world cause here I come” attitude!

  7. Elise says:

    *Standing ovation* Yes PLEASE don’t go anywhere! Although I’m mostly a lurker, I come here regularly for inspiration to continue my own journey.

    And I agree with Roly Poly…martial arts would be kickass!

    ah yes, the maintaining, which is probably the more difficult part since you get the emotional release of reaching your goal, you have to fight the urges your brain gives you to ease back into your old behavior.

    It happens slowly. You eat a cheeseburger, gain no weight, then it is easy to assume your body is immune to gaining weight.

    You will do good because you don’t want to go back and start the journey again (or have to change the name to 388pounds)..

    Proud of you for getting this far, man.

  9. Laura says:

    You’re doing awesome! I’ve been hovering for awhile, but had to comment. I read so much about how you motivate and inspire people in their comments on your blogs, and I’m really glad that you’ll continue to do so in the future, despite reaching your goal.

  10. Tyler says:

    It will be a big journey. I got a surprise in store — stay tuned!

  11. Tyler says:

    Here’s hoping! And guitars are for hippies.

  12. Tyler says:

    Nice to see you around these parts. Awesome blog.

  13. Tyler says:

    Thanks, Kyle. We’re going to do some big things after we hit 199 pounds and I’m glad you’ll be around to watch it all!

  14. Tyler says:

    I’m not going anywhere! Martial arts is simply too time consuming, I’m going have to increase weight training A LOT for my next goal.

    My schedule is already packed enough.

  15. Tyler says:

    I don’t plan on maintaining my weight. I plan on changing my body a whole lot more.

    It makes me smile that you’re proud of me!

  16. Tyler says:

    It’s just one goal, I have another goal that I haven’t shared with anybody… that’ll be announced after I hit 199.

    Thanks for commenting, please continue to do so! I love reading comments, I read every single one even though I may not always find the time to be able to reply back.

    Awesome blog, by the way.

  17. Katie55 says:

    Oh, yeah! Keep those new challenges coming! I think that’s the danger of meeting a goal. If you don’t establish the next one, you coast and end up back where you started.
    Following your blog has helped me change my focus from # on the scale to total health and enthusiasm about life! I am 24 pounds down with 10 more to go. I ran my first 5K last month, am trying lots of new things besides.
    Thanks from someone old enough to be your mom!

  18. Dude, enough with the teasers! I can’t wait to hear what the new goal is!

    I love your attitude that this is a HUGE milestone but it’s not the end or even the pinnacle. THAT is what will keep you fit and healthy for a lifetime.

    And I’m with you in wanting to do bigger and better things, always. My big/fun/scary news is that I joined a softball team. I know no one, and I haven’t played in years…here’s hoping I don’t make a total idiot of myself!

  19. Jaclyn says:

    Secret Goals=Fun.
    Yay Fun.

  20. joeymac says:

    Good one.. turn the weight loss blog into a body reshaping blog. I imagine your family doctor is a lot happier to see you these days!

  21. Tara says:

    I don’t know whose more excited. You because its your weigh in or me because I get to be a part of it.

  22. beej says:

    Perfect point of view, Tyler! (I keep wanting to call you “Ty”). It’s all about continuous improvement. And you’ve got it!

    I feel honored to be able to watch your journey thus far. Awesome!

  23. kate says:

    Crossing fingers – UNDER 200!!!!

  24. TwMi says:

    Tyler– You have been such an inspiration, because of you I am about to reach my half-way point of my journey to lose 160 pounds. On January 24th I weighed 320 pounds, and hopefully on May 20th, I will weigh 240. Tyler, to see you weigh in tomorrow and be under 200lbs will be even more inspiration, and it will tell me that I can do it! I will eventually be 199lbs and lower!

  25. Jeff says:

    I’m not much of a “commenter”, but I’ve been following your blog for a few months now, and you are seriously an inspiration, brother. Keep up the good wrk and positive attitude. It’s truly contagious. I’ve gone from 325 to 299 since the middle of March. My goal is 205. Just wanted to say “thanks”

  26. ElGabachoNaco says:

    If the surprise is a feature film, I’m available to play 280 lb Tyler — for now. Working to be more of a 250 lb Tyler soon.

  27. Frank Dobner says:


    I am 54 years old and I still have a whole lot of stuff I am going to do yet. And I am just referring to this year alone.

  28. Joann says:

    I would love to join that dance on Wednesday!

    Tyler, I hope your goals include teaching others about weight loss and getting fit. You have inspired so many here to at least begin the journey. Thanks for all you do for us!

  29. Michelle says:

    You look great already. Keep up the good work. I will continue watching your progress. And now a lot of people have someone to look up to and get ideas of how they can change there life.

  30. Erica says:

    I’m not sure if this is my favorite of all your posts, or the one from 5/5/10 saying that you’ve reached your goal. Let’s call it a tie. I was relieved to read this post as I didn’t find your blog until Jan. 2010, so you got much more of a head start on your weight loss journey than me. Your blog has been very uplifting, and I was afraid of what would happen once you reached your goal…but it sounds like you have far more in store for all of us–I can’t wait!! In the meantime, congratulations on getting below 200…I can’t wait to get there too!

  31. kat says:

    Found your blog while looking around for info about Les Mills classes. I took BodyATTACK two weeks ago and it really kicked my butt. I’ve since been to it again as well as to a Combat and Pump class. They are fun.

    Congratulations on meeting your goal!
