So…. you may notice it gets a bit quiet around here from time to time. See, I’m just one dude with an idea. There are a ton of great WLS related sites out there, with more popping up all the time. I think some of the best are the more personal sites, done by patients, talking about their experiences, sharing ideas, etc.
The vast majority of WLS patients are women, so it’s a given that most of the sites out there are by women. No big deal, I’ve gotten to know a ton of great women through their sites and twitter and various forums. But sometimes, a dude just needs to hear it from another dude. Thus, my idea for formerfatdudes.com came about.
But even tho I’m a dude, I’m not sure I’m your typical WLS type… and likely there isn’t even one. I can give you MY perspective on things, but I’m not the end-all and be-all of WLS dudes. That’s where YOU come in.
If you’re a dude that’s had, or is in the process of working towards some form of weight loss surgery, I’m looking for some help here. Or maybe you’re married to someone who’s having/had some form of bariatric surgery, you have a perspective on things that should be out there as well.
Or maybe you’re not even thinking about weight loss surgery, but you’re a dude struggling against obesity and are still trying to tackle it through other means, or maybe you’ve done so and are now a former fat dude yourself? You also have a perspective that is worth sharing.
I don’t care if you’ve never written before, we all start somewhere, right? You just need to have… well, thoughts, opinions, ideas, and experiences (those in the past as well as those coming up count), and a sense of humor helps too.
And I’m not looking for a ton of your time. Once a week? Once a Month? That’s fine. If you already have your own blog, great…maybe toss me a bone with a guest posting once in awhile.
