@JMBartholomew Three Fat SIngletons by J.M.Bartholomew Book Spotlight!
Dotty the virgin, Mary the divorcee, and Jesse the man-eater are best friends with four things in common: they are single, obese, pushing 40, and unsatisfied with life.
Together they explore the fat-underworld of London including blind dates, Internet dating, phone sex and the possibilities of lifetime celibacy.
When a week-long getaway to Greece turns into a whirlwind of romance, sex and horrific embarrassment, each one of them will have to decide what they really want in life.

I don't know exactly how old I was but I remember being in primary school and my teacher saying in front of the whole class 'Goodness you are as heavy as I am' when she decided for some reason known only to her, to weigh all the pupils. This was the beginning of my realization that I wasn't in the body that society deemed normal. It didn't take too many more years for me to fall well and truly into the category of obese and then morbidly obese. Thankfully I kept a sense of humour throughout and often some of the most horrific things that happen can, in hindsight, can be hilarious! Before losing nine stones in weight I personally explored the fat-underworld in London and all of the places mentioned in the book are in existence, although for legal reasons one or two of the places have had their names changed. I consider myself an expert in the issues fat singletons (and marrieds) face!
