    I’ve had zero time to keep up with the site but fortunately that’s not cutting into my gym time. Keeping up with that, just like you! I’ll try posting some progress pics to my thread.

    Glad to see you’re keeping up with the process. I took my shirt off at the beach for the first time since…jr high? Been a damn long time! Making progress.

    Tyler, I honestly am so humbled to be able to get shout outs from you. I remember when I first started this idea of blogging I had no idea how to start. I found your blog and thought, man it would be cool to actually get to know him and talk to him. Your journey has inspired me, your the reason I started to actually LOSE weight. I am so glad you have come to me for opinions on the forum. I feel like I am actually helping so many people out.

    The past couple of weeks have been rough on me. I am not losing weight like crazy like some other people. The scale cannot define how far I have come. NSV can though, like running a 5k in 28:01. Like fitting into a Medium t-shirt size or enjoying running for the first time in my life.

    Thank you Tyler for building this forum- It’s made me a different, healthy person. I know I can always come to you for advice and to get my ass back on track.

    So I just stumpled upon your website while looking for some motivation to loose weight. I am a 39yr old female who has been recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Bone Degeneration Disease. I have a ton of pain in my lower back so it is hard for me to do a lot of exercise, but since Dec 2009 I have lost 45lbs. I feel better but at only 5’3″ and 210lbs I still have a long way to go. Right now my weight loss has totally stopped. So I really need some motivation —– Mel

    Congrats on the progress. I don’t mind if you’re not here every day. I’d love it, but I’m glad you’re being active. I just hope you do stop around every other day to say hi! 🙂

  6. Tyler says:

    I’m glad you know that. You can always come here for advice and I’ll be here to help. I don’t always have time, especially on twitter, but I’m always here to answer questions or concerns.

    I’m glad you found other benefits to losing weight other than seeing the scale move. It’s really just about closing your eyes, ignoring the scale, and working to lose weight without really much motivation or inspiration. You just need to keep in mind in the back of your head that when you open your eyes in 6 months, you’ll look completely different in the mirror and be able to do things you never thought possible.

    I love Molly.

    I love you.

    Two compliments for two awesome people. I’m on a “no scale” banishment from that silly trainer whom I love and adore. It’s driving me crazy. I’m so defined by what that silly little contraption tells me but it’s forcing me to look at myself in different ways. Really looking at myself and not being worried that every small step will cause a gain. In fact, I’ve gotten more compliments this week on how fit my body looks than over the past few weeks. The universe is letting me know I don’t need that scale.

    What’s your calorie intake looking for the day? While exercise is important, and it’s much tougher to lose weight by strictly watching what you eat, you certainly can lose weight by just moderating your calorie intake.

    So, what do your daily intake of calories look like?

  10. Tyler says:

    We love you, too! Did your trainer actually take the scale away from you? Now, that’d be funny. You’re right, it’s a silly little contraption that doesn’t tell you anything important. It’s just a number and it doesn’t even tell you how health you are.

    It really shouldn’t matter that we were 219 pounds today and 221 pounds the next. We’re not going to die and no, it doesn’t make us look that much fatter. It’s water weight, food weight, extra clothes, whatever. The scale is such an evil, evil thing, but I don’t think people will stop relying on it anytime soon.

    I started using that http://www.myfitnesspal.com yesterday. It said my goal for the day should be 1,319 based on what I input. Yesterday I was 1,438. So I can see where I was over. It is a very helpful tool. I plan to try and be at more like 1,200 per day. And walk. 4x around my building here at work is a mile. I can ususally make it 1 and 1/2 before my back really causes pain. But I know if I keep that up I hope to get to 1 and 3/4 etc. I really like your website. I have a 12 yr old that is focused on weight as well and I showed her this and she is going to follow you as well….mel
