  9. Hello Everybody: I'm a health reporter with U.S. News & World Report working on a story on emotional or psycholgical issues people go through after weight-loss surgery. Coming across the Thinner Times forum has already given me new perspective. I asked Dr. Callery for permission to reach out to members and he suggested joining up. If you have some time tomorrow (Friday, August 7) or even this weekend and would like to be interviewed by phone, please let me know when and how to reach you. You can also contact me at lesposito@usnews.com. Thanks for considering this request! Lisa Esposito Patient Advice reporter
