This past weekend I flew to “fabulous” (or so they tell me) Las Vegas, where I was honored to attend the American Librarian Association’s annual Conference and Exhibition, where I got to sign advanced copies of my brand new book, Weightless: My Life As a Fat Man and How I Escaped.
I am so excited about this upcoming book, which details my journey from my birthweight of 8 lbs. and 6 oz. to over 450 pounds and then back down (and a little up and down) to a healthy 175 pounds. The book chronicles all of my “Before, During and After” adventures in a very humorous, harrowing and candid way — and even includes a bonus section with all kinds of helpful hints, recipes, tips and more for anyone who might be looking to take their own journey to a healthier weight. The book even features a foreword by the esteemed (and hilarious and inspirational) Joy Bauer.
The book comes out on September 9th and I promise to share more about it between now and then. But if you’d like, you can “like” the Weightless Facebook Page, where I’ll also be posting updates. In the meantime, here are a few pics from Vegas that I wanted to share with you. Hopefully I’ll have future signings in your area (once the book comes out) and I might get to meet you in person. But be forewarned, as the librarians attending the conference in Vegas will tell you, I don’t shut up when signing your book and ask a lot of nosy questions! Hey, that’s just me!
