Overview
On TLC's "My 600 LB Life", Chad Dean was quoted as saying "The board game most closely resembling my life is CandyLand. I would eat anything and everything I wanted, whenever I wanted." But those days are long gone. He's now one of that rare 5% of gastric bypass recipients who have maintained their weight loss after two years. By spilling out intimate details of his life on the pages of "I'm In Here Somewhere," his greatest hope is that others may learn from his mistakes, recognize their own decline into addiction, and pass on the knowledge to others that are still in gripping denial.
Description
On TLC's "My 600 LB Life", Chad Dean was quoted as saying "The board game most closely resembling my life is CandyLand. I would eat anything and everything I wanted, whenever I wanted." But those days are long gone. He's now one of that rare 5% of gastric bypass recipients who have maintained their weight loss after two years. By spilling out intimate details of his life on the pages of "I'm In Here Somewhere," his greatest hope is that others may learn from his mistakes, recognize their own decline into addiction, and pass on the knowledge to others that are still in gripping denial. The journey was a tough one. Chad credits his brilliant physician, a television production company willing to take a chance, the unwavering support of his loving family, sound fitness advice, and a blatant truth-telling friend that never bent under the pressure of the addicted. Chad fought hard, stumbled, got back to his feet, and battled like a warrior to right the wrong he'd done to his body. You can't endure such hills and valleys without glancing over your shoulder to see what demons still chase you. What he found was a burning question as to why he'd ended up in that predicament in the first place. The one thing that Chad never lost was his irreverent humor, positivity, and strong confidence. They may have faltered a few times, but they're in full force in his honest, no holds-barred memoir of a food addict who conquered his worst enemy: himself.
