TLC's "My 600-lb Life" Chad Dean’s Story and a Q&A

Weighing in at 701 pounds, Chad Dean was dying. Or rather, killing himself. This big man was gleefully traipsing down the road paved with chocolate and lined with donuts while steadily committing food suicide. It’s an ugly word chock full of sadness and heartache, yet the scrumptiously delicious things he continuously shoved into his mouth on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis might as well have been a loaded gun.

Then, something clicked. He saw the light—and woke up. Dean got his act together, lost 400 pounds, and is now a proud member of the five percent club. Only five out of 100 people succeeds in keeping the weight off after gastric bypass surgery.

Maybe you've followed his story on TLC's "My 600lb Life". Maybe not. Either way, his memoir is a must read, especially if you or someone you know is struggling with food addiction.
I want to share a little peek inside today, as well as a Q&A with Chad.


The book I’m In Here Somewhere: Memoir of a Food Addict, is the memoir of Chad Dean, the weight loss warrior behind My 600-lb Life’s biggest success story, as told to and written by Celeste Prater.

Valentine’s Day is about... Candy. Isn't it? // Where Did The SweetHearts Go?

It feels as if Valentine's Day candy hit the shelves the evening of Christmas Day. Maybe it did? I know, Valentine's Day is all about LOVE... But basically Valentine’s Day is about love and romance AND spending money to demonstrate them. Last year, the National Retail Federation predicted a slight drop off in in Valentine’s Day spending in all but one category. You guessed it: candy.



So just in case you were wondering what the favorite Valentine's Day candy in every state is, check out this interactive map:
