Thinner Times Forum?



Recommended Posts

Hi all, first time posting, a vet GBS 8 years out, on track for a revision to DS. Last time around I was part of a forum called “Thinner Times”. I see it when I google it but unable to get in. Did this forum cease to exist?

Loving this forum but also wanted to check out a few others!

Thinner Times seems to have gone to a happier place not of this world.

It seems the Forums are closed, there is a Facebook group that appears to have a last post of 5 years ago.

Welcome to this forum which does seem to still exist with fair to midland activity levels.

Good luck,

Tek

wow - didn't know that. I only visited that one sporadically, but it's been years. Didn't realize it'd kicked the bucket.

The board closed a while ago. It never seemed to have much traffic.

With more and more people getting WLS I'd like to know where people are gathering. Considering the amount of people getting WLS places like BP or Reddit don't have much traffic as well.

Not likely all the WLS traffic but Facebook has many many WLS / bariatric groups.

I feel like forums are becoming a thing of the past, at least based on the traffic I’m seeing here and another forum I’m a part of obesityhelp. Thinner Times was THE place to be 8 years ago, it was hopping. This shift to fb groups makes me sad because I really prefer the forum format! I also limit my time on Facebook so it’s not as accessible for me.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
