    Thanks for sharing
  • Coach Dean,
    Your story is an inspiration to one and all!
  • I really miss Dean. Does anyone know what happened with him?
  • This could be my story. I have a health coach from my insurance and a dietitian also from my coach and I told both of them, that I was going to gain back what weight I had lost and have the weight loss surgery that I was going to have a year ago. My husband and I decided to have weight loss surgery last year. I got within a week of having mine and they called to say I had lost too much and was no longer a candidate for the surgery. My husband has lost about 80 pounds and is doing great. I have been eating everything that is not nailed down. I took a big step this morning and gave away 1/2 of a bag of jelly beans. I had already eaten 3 bags of them. I feel so discouraged and frustrated. Reading this story made me stop and think.
  • I love reading every Dean writes. He's so honest and inspiring. Thank you!

    One morning walk in Joymohan's life changes it all. After suffering a heart-attack one morning, on his birthday, Joymohan (Anupam Kher) realizes that he needs to spend more time with his family - son (Rajit Kapoor), daughter-in-law (Divya Dutta) and granddaughter Avika Gor and mend broken bridges of the past.

I was moved by it very much and has struck a chord with me since I am confrontred with similar issues. Thank you for sharing all this, it has somehow inspired me not to give up. I am sure your determination and courage will inspire and give hope to many more.

    Congratulations, it was nothing short of sheer determination to make the necessary life changes. Continue to inspire!
  • Thank you so much for sharing your story. You are certainly an inspiration to me!
  • I absolutely love your story! Thank you so much for sharing it. After losing 82 pounds, I didn't find the girl I left at this same weight many years ago. My body has definitely changed, haha! On the other hand, it doesn't look bad and I feel so much better.
