Good points. But, this little gem: "looking in a mirror or going out in public without feeling like some kind of escapee from a circus side show act." -- that was a pretty cruel statement. This is the kind of crap that overweight people need to stand up AGAINST -- especially morbidly obese individuals who struggle with disabling issues EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. They don't need to read stuff like that -- especially when they're HERE trying to change their lives. Be kind. It's pretty easy, really.

Good article. Goals are important and can help measure where we are and where we need to be. We must also remember we are human and if we blow it today, we can realize it tomorrow.

Dean has such good wisdom. This is a good idea. Planning out the day took me some practice, but it does work.

Dean, your journey was for a reason. Your help here is invaluable and you are much beloved. I'm so glad you found your place in this world "after 50". I don't mean that to sound condescending (if it does), it's just, as you know, a lot of people struggle to find the best way to contribute their vast life experience with such grace as you have. I love your articles; you truly have found your voice and they resonate with so many of us Sparkers! Keep writing: we want more of you :-) And we apply what you say! What better thanks could there be? xo

Dean Anderson's articles are a motivational gold mine! And he's been through all this with us so he understands even better!

I absolutely love Dean Anderson`s articles. Everything he says helps me to have clarity and understanding in the way i think about food, the way i use food as an emotional tool and to be finally be honest about myself and find ways to deal with my stress levels when i am frustrated about my weight loss every few weeks. Thank you Dean, your advice is invaluable and helping to slowly but surely change.

I'm finding the articles in "Mind Over Body" to be agreat help as I'm getting back on track. I lost 25 lbs, about 1/2 of it before I discovered SP. Then I started graduate school (at age 58) and was dealing with some family issues at home, so I've just been trying to maintain. I did well until this last month or so, when I've gained back about 5 lbs. That scared me, plus I'm used to my new study program and my home situation is better, so I'm ready to lose the 5 I've gained plus the next 25. Anyway, Dean's articles are usually helpful, but especially this series, I think. Thanks!
