Coach Dean,

Thank you for sharing your story - your story has inspired me as I have made it my goal as well to maintain a healthy weight. What a challenge it IS to figure it all out personalize it to fit "your" life. I can relate to your story all too well. LOVED your article!
btw - I have always hated those gym mirrors too. Lol!

I just finished reading your story, and want to congratulate you and thank you for sharing your journey. I often just scroll through the pages to get the points, but read every word that you wrote. I especially understood what you said about using the weight as an excuse for not doing things.. I think a lot of us are afraid of the changes weight loss will require us to make in our lives. Thank you again, and very best wishes for the future.

Thanks Coach Dean for sharing your story. So much of it I can relate to. I am on the way to loosing more than 100lb for the second time and was so disappointed and embarrassed that I couldn't maintain the loss the first time around. This time its going much much slower and for me the thing that has helped so far is the strength training with a personal trainer. My weight loss too is not a straight line but up down up and stalled, it is so easy to give up and put it in the too hard basket, but you have proved that it's possible and are continuing to lead by example.

Thank you
