    • The Trevor Project Orange Party - October 10, 2015   10/04/2015

      Dear Thinner Times Members -  As is evident, we don't use Thinner Times to serve advertisements or to generate profits. Every now and then, however, something comes along that 'hits home' that we like to promote. My partner, Josh, is the co-chair of the Ambassadors group for The Trevor Project - a leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth. Josh is co-hosting the San Diego annual fundraiser and party this year, which we have been spending many tireless months planning for. If you, a friend or family member is interested in supporting the Trevor Project, make a night of it next week at The Orange Party. Tickets are $75 for general admission, and $100 for regular admission. Two of the cast members from "Glee" will be there co-hosting, as well.  Learn more about the event and registration on this website I put together this weekend: http://trevororange.party/. My father, Dr. Callery, will also be attending, so we hope to see you there! John Callery

    Words will never describe what this surgery did for me, and continues to do for me each and every day. Food will always be a struggle, but I have the power to control the food I put in me, and not the other way around. I thought 322lbs was living, but never have i been so alive! A new lease on life, and a new body. Thats what I calll WINNING.

    Im getting myself back on track.

    I have been tracking everything I eat. Staying under 1200 calories, drinking plenty of water. I just wish I could make more time for myself to go to the gym. The scale says im down 2lbs! Feeling proud of myself that I have taken this accountability and run with it. Its just so emotional some times ... the ups and downs I go through with my weight.

    Thanks guys for the advice and support

    Starting today

    1. My livestrong journal is back in action
    2. I will do a full food shopping and fill my fridge up with wls friendly food, and go back to wls recipes
    3. I will go to the gym more than 1 a week--I will actually plan this into my day so no excuses any more
    4. I will try my hardest to make the wls support meetings at my hospital

    I AM WORTH IT. I just need to stay focused. God this is hard.

    Why can I not control my hunger?
    I’m frustrated and scared--I can’t stop eating. I am almost a year out, -130lbs, I feel great, but now I can’t stop myself from eating. Does anyone else who is out for more than a year experience this? It is the worst feeling ever to have made all this progress, be committed to this lifestyle, yet these old foodie thoughts of mine are resurfacing and I am finding it extremely hard to stay on plan again. It requires constant monitoring, constant checking of myself, and being aware of what I am eating at all times. Sometimes I am not hungry when I eat, but I eat. I don’t get it? It’s like I hear this voice in my head saying eat eat eat, yet at the same time I am at war with those thoughts --and the voice ALWAYS wins. I want to hate the food that is bad for me, but I just can’t get myself to have enough self-control.

    This is a low for me--I need some inspiration and encouragement.
