    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,

    At this point I think it still needs some work. Food log I would not use, but when I went to put in "walking on a treadmill at 3.8 mph for 45 minutes" it could not find walking on a treadmill! I'll pass on the tool for now. I don't think most of this type of program would cover my activities too well. Thanks anyway.

    I think treadmill was under conditioning. I found it by putting in "conditioning, treadmill" then it gives me the options of very light to very heavy exercise. I did the same thing for elliptical and stationary bike.

    ETA: it's the same thing with food too. I had baked chicken breasts, and I had to put it in like "chicken, breast, roasted w/o skin" or just "chicken, breast" and look for my cooking style

    Guess I just wasn't able to find the link in the proper order. At the same time, I am not a neophyte at the web, so. . . why did I have a hard time finding the link? I am still looking for a site that lets me plan my total gym workouts better, but can't.

    Thanks Laura!

    I still think your feedback was/is valuable, Betaquartz. Yours and others have been passed on. People do need to easily find what they need in order for such a tool to be useful. :-)
