    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Counseling is good, but pick a goal and commit to it. If you are serious about being whole for your kids, then focus on that goal. When times get tough, focus on the goal... When you don't feel like getting off the couch, focus on that goal. There may be times when you don't overcome the lack of motivation, but just get back up on the horse (goal) and run at it again.

    Life wasn't meant to be easy. If it was, we wouldn't learn anything.

    I get derailed and go off the tracks very quickly - snowball effect. Nothing has helped to regain focus.
