Surgical Weight Loss – A Boy’s Own Adventure Story

That’s if it’s Billy Bunter’s Boy’s Own.

Anyway, I hope that in this blog, feckless musings, complete rambling mess of words, I am able to relay to you my experiences of the past 12 and coming 18 months, in such a way that you the reader find it both enjoyable (see funny) and insightful (see clever).

I shall try to share with you the weight related experiences I have had (both good and bad) since life started all those years ago and during this time would hope that you get a sense of the person that I am, whether that be the fat person trying to survive or the thin person trying to get out.

We start the blog with my previous 12 – 18 months in a kind of pre blog blog, below are thumbnails of the actual artwork attributed to each story, simply click on the thumbnail and transported back to a time where all of this wasn’t even the merest whiff on an idea….

When you are done simply press the back button or click on home and you can read the next instalment. Oh and if you like it, why not follow it!

Where We’re Going We Don’t Need Roads

A Dream Sign, Yesterday

And I came over all dreamy like…

So I had opened myself up to the possibilities of Bariatric Surgery and how it could possibly improve my life. I think it was fairly obvious that it was now time to take this further. At this point, I had been to a general ‘open day’ with… Read more in Tell Me About Your Dreams
