See how gastric sleeve surgery in 2014 helped me lose lots of weight rapidly and made my life great once again. 
If you are severely overweight or morbidly obese and are considering surgery, then hopefully this site might help.

A Bit About Del Singh - BariatricMan

Thank you to all of you who have visited this site over the years and I'm so glad it has helped inspire some of you to lose weight and others with life after bariatric surgery.

I have been asked quite a few times about my life before my surgery and my background; the things that are important to me and why, so I am pleased to share with you some of these.

Voluntary Work: 

I was born in the city of Peterborough and it is a city I love and a community I love too, as its been kind to me and my family.  Although I am a Sikh I firmly believe that one should try and benefit all and not just the group you belong to.  

My first bit of voluntary work was back in 1974 at the age of 12 when the late Reverend Richard Paten a most wonderful man asked for help to transform a piece of derelict wasteland into a childrens playground.  So I along with a small group spent that summer clearing, cleaning and digging this area of land, so it could be fitted with swings, slides and play tunnels not just for us but for all the kids in the area.  Richard Paten had spent time in Africa helping children and when he officially opened the playground he named it Kamba Ya Wa Toto, which was Swahili for "String of Children".   Over the years I and many other children spent happy hours at the playground we built and even today 44 years later that playground is still there, albeit with modern swings, roundabouts and safe artificial playing surfaces instead of grass and concrete.

Not all the kids enjoyed the experience of volunteering their time and efforts to build a playground but I found it most satisfying and when the opportunity arose 4 years later to do voluntary work at the weekend at a local centre for people with mental disabilites I was only too happy to volunteer.
