AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Written in the form of an extended blog, Fat Chance is a funny and honest account of Melanie Tait's unfolding journey through her fat life, before, during and after lap band surgery. It follows her struggles with being overweight, how she came to have the operation, what the operation feels like, her slow progress to thin and ultimately the challenge of living with a band. It also tells the stories of others who have had the band: those it's worked well for, other's where it hasn't, as well as inside information from doctors and health professionals.'
