    • 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

    Thank you Ansley, I will be cautious, my biggest concern is eating enough at this point. I really don't enjoy food anymore and prefer protein drinks and one small meal a day.

    I am a life long fatty.. soon to be WAS and I chose the VSG for many reasons.

    I wanted a permanent fix because I know how I am and wanted it done and over with. Fillings, retightenings etc weren't and option, because I procrastinate some and also for cost reasons.

    I now have a 2 ounce stomach and I knew this procedure would recondition my eating habits and it has.

    Each online community is different. I have lurked this site for months before joining and even though I am not a huge internet fan, I love this site. Where else could I meet so many people with a vast array of feedback and insight, not to mention encouragement from others progress? We can't just talk to anyone about our journeys, most wouldn't understand.

    I know it is a hard thing to do, but stay away from your scale. Mine depressed me the more I hopped onto it.. Two months out I quit it lol so when I did stall I didn't even notice. I focus on walking further, swimming longer and counting my grams of protein. Don't get down, just stick to your schedule/routine and buck the scale

    Hello from Venice Beach
  10. ElisabethSparrow added a topic in Introduce Yourself   

    I wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Elisabeth. I am 4 months and 11 days out. By far.. The VSG was the best decision I have ever made in my life, for my life. I am forever changed and now fully understand what "a new lease on life means". I am friendly, chatty at times lol and seldom bite.. So don't be afraid to say hi.
