    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?

    Weighing in is totally optional, but if it isn't optional for you--share your progress with us. You can either share your actual weight, or the difference in weight each week.

    Share your weekly weigh-in once a week, right before you start a new week of your plan. (No matter what day of the week that is...)

    Don't forget the Four S's of Weighing Yourself :

    * Same time of day, on the

    * Same day each week, wearing the

    In 2003, I used a diet and monitoring plan via WebMD, which cost around $60. I had great success. However, I've spent the last few yrs on and off corticosteroids for a health condition, and have since gained all my weight back.

    Can you help me find that plan? It required daily meal/snack input from user and had daily calorie and nutrition tracking with report of nutrient deficits and recommendations.

    It kept me on track and worked wonders as it was individual and personal and kept me accountable.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Appybirthday--WebMD doesn't offer the Weight Loss Clinic plan anymore. I am sorry. We instead beefed up our diet and weight loss tools and content. More to improvements to come.

    You can find those new tools and content by going to the Eating and Diet page. The tools are in the top right corner.

    I miss WLC too. Our diet clubs are super though--as is this community.

    My loss for this week (Thurs to Thurs) is 5 lbs. That's after gaining 3 lbs last week during TOM. So really, it's 2lbs.

    But it just makes me feel good to say it's 5 rather than 2, and since that's what the scale says for this week, I'm sticking with the 5 lbs lost! ;)
