    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.
  • Great story, nicely written and inspiring! Thanks!
  • Someone had commented they read everything you wrote- so that's what I started doing. Very enjoyable article.

I feel your honest account of your challenge and struggles to lose weight and regain your health again is a most impressive and inspiring accomplishment. 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.
  • What an amazing journey and thank you for sharing about all the ups and downs that you endured. It actually will give a lot of people hope and help them realize this is a long term journey and not a sprint to the goal. I am so very impressed with what you have accomplished. You should feel very proud of yourself.
  • I really learned a lot from your words. I seem to be stuck at the moment at not losing but it isn't really bothering me. I have been getting stronger physically and that pleases me the most. I enjoyed your journey to a better you and it has really helped me. Thank you for the time you put into writing this for the rest of us.
