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 y

What an inspiration! Nice book. What a lovely family.

Thanks to author,publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book.
While I got the book for free,it had no bearing on the rating I gave it.

I read the book in a very short period of time, not a big reader, but I really enjoyed this book. My hat goes off to Celeste Prater for doing an incredible job telling Chad’s story! The amazing support Chad received from Ayesha and the kids. I know Chad also has an amazing family back in NY. I know it to be much more than a book, it’s a life, and it’s Chad’s life and I couldn’t be more proud of him. Oh by the way, my name is Pete and Chad is a good friend of mine!😎👍
I'm in Here Somewhere as told to and written by Celeste Prater is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in mid-January.

The story of Chad Dean, who’d appeared on My 600lb Life on TLC. It's hugely confrontational, speaking out at the reader with first-person narration in a series of font sizes, bold, and italics, and the photos set up like a scrapbook piece with insets/captions of criticism and inner dialogue.

Thank you to Netgalley for a free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I found the conversational style of this book a bit difficult to enjoy, it was a little loose and I felt this way of telling a story was better suited to a podcast. However it was interesting to learn of Chad’s journey and I was happy to share in his success. He should be very proud of himself.
