    • 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

    It is quite possible to be less about the weight loss than the confidence!

    Congrats to both of you
  3. woverman added a post in a topic Very anxious before surgery. Any words?   

    I have never had a problem with anesthesia.  In fact, the first time I had it (1984( I like it so well, I wasn't ready to wake up.. The kept telling me to breathe in the oxygen from the mask, to wake up.  I would take my tounge and push the mask away to take in the outside air and go back to sleep.  I have had it probably 8 to ten times total.  It is nothing to worry about.

  5. woverman added a post in a topic First day back to work   

    I was lucky.  I too have an office job.  I had my surgery on Tuesday and was back at work the following Monday.  I did one half day and then went full days.

    You have to be soooooo excited.  Every thin will go fine.  See you on the other side!
  7. woverman added a post in a topic Do you need more time alone now?   

    Alone time is not only desired, but a necessity. I suffer from MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) I cherish my alone time.  I have adjusted my hours at work from 6:30am to 3:00pm just so I can get two hours alone before my wife gets home.  I am so bad, I have tried sucide three times over the past19 months.

    Take it slow with adding foods to your diet.  After all, you have a brand new stomach.
    What kind of work do you do and how is it being back?

    The best thing I found to get the protien was "Calorie Countdown" my Hood. It is a milk type drink, you can get in Whit and Chocolate. I liked the Chocolate. It is fairly high in protien and low in carbs. It helped me from the start. I am 4 and a half years out and still drink it from time to time, just because I like it. You can hardly tell a difference between it and the real thing.
  11. woverman added a post in a topic My first dump... Word to the other newbies.   

    I am 4 and half years out. The only problem I had/have is cake icing. I love that stuff, but can't have it any more. Arrrrrrg
