Adventures in Weight Loss: Coach Dean's Story

140 Pounds Gone Forever

29SHARES

While I was doing all this, I regained about 35 pounds, but I’m not worried about it anymore. My exercise routine and eating habits are healthy and I can maintain my current weight without depriving myself, wearing myself out, or worrying about it all the time. I’ve been steady at this weight for over a year now. And all those old health problems are still well under control without medications.

Every now and then I still have fantasies about trading in my droopy belly and love handles for washboard abs, but then I remind myself that’s probably not in the cards. And really, what would be the point? I’m about as healthy as I can be, capable of doing everything I need to do, and happy. What else really matters?
