I found this article very interesting because I am going through the same thing. I am also curious about calorie intake. I try to keep my calorie intake around 1300 calories a day and I burn somewhere between 500-700 calories at the gym each day. Am I taking in enough calories? My doctor keeps telling me no but I have been loosing weight. Could not enough of a calorie intake make a person plateau?

Coach Dean is a Godsend. I can see myself in everything he says. I am 58 and have been up and down all my adult life. Now I'm scared......scared to fail again, scared to succeed, but he is giving me the motivation knowing I am not alone. I can do this...I must.
Thank you for sharing. At 54 I regret waiting so long to take charge of my eating and health. I know I will never look 25 again and that makes me a little sad. But I am looking forward to looking like a healthy, active 54 year old by the end of the year.
Coach Dean, you helped me earlier today more than you could know in my Panic room post. I appreciate that and appreciate that you shared your story with all of us. I know that one day I'll have a story too and I use that as motivation and inspiration in times that it seems so hard. I'm still a beginner but your story helps me to know that it can be accomplished. Thanks again!
