Chato as FAT MAN Unleashed, Cartooning True Life!

Mental health humor - Things to do when your stuffing your face

Chato B. Stewart

I feel like a kid in a candy shop… oops bad analogy for weight loss blog. Really, I am thrilled that out of all the hundreds of entries to be a guest cartoonist here at FMU, they picked me… Oh.. there was no contest.

Who am I? I’m Chato B Stewart who the hell are you? I’m the 37 year old Fat Man in the photo and I’ll be posting under “Chato as FAT MAN Unleashed Cartooning True Life!” With each post, I’ll add a cartoon about my weight loss progress and a little useless banter. As you can see from the pic of me, I like to clown around. Yet, what I focus on is no joke. At 356 lbs, I not only cope with my weight but deal with bipolar disorder, too. If you want to lean more about that and other mental illness, check out my blog later. My blog is a little different. See I believe that in life we NEED, MUST HAVE humor to really survive in this world. So, I focus on healing with humor.


Mental health is very important with our weight issues. We deal with low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, rage, and anger and many other issues. Without the proper mental state, no amount of weight loss will be permanent… We need to be focused on our goal, but sometimes we also need to find out what the root of our weight gain is. I have told people a simple truth about my weight issue… “I eat because I’m depressed, I’m depressed because I eat.” You know sometimes our medications can put on weight and make it much harder to take it off to. What are your root causes?

Join me every other week for the next cartoon installment as I chronicle my weight loss with blood, sweat, and ink. Today My stats are 356lbs Loss: 0

    Well, I’m squeezing out of it anyway….

    Your funny!!! I love it.I’m also working on my weight loss. I must admit, at first it was a challenge, I found it hard to find time to work out on a regular basis. Although I lost some weight by changing my diet, I was lacking in the exercising department. Luckily, a friend of mine (who recently lost 40 lbs) suggested a fitness system that she was using. I tried it and got great results. With in a few weeks I lost 20 lbs.

  8. Trying to watch our weight is very important. And we need to make sure we care for our children and watch them too.

  9. Quick update… I’m now blogging at Psych Central Humor.
