    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

    Don't Say Goodbye

    Just say goodbye.

    Well, I'm trying to put it all,
    it all back into place,
    the way things were before,
    before I started the race.

    Your obscure music reference to help me start this post--that makes things easier. You see, this is my last day tending this community. I will be around until the 24th on all of my other communities (except Diabetes). This one gets an early swap though (and is why I had a shadow). Andie starts as the official moderator for this community after today.

    This community has gifted me with so much. I love it for the enthusiasm, for the encouragement you offer each other, for the knowledge, experiences, and true heart you share. This community--special in ways that I ramble about in meeting after meeting. I hope you know it and share it for years to come with others.

    Take those small steps with this community. You can change your life and you can change others just by showing up here and being you.

    Thanks to each of you for letting me into your life and taking me into yours. You can't imagine how honored and humbled I have been by being a part of your story.

    So, don't say goodbye, just say goodbye.

    I feel a group hug coming on. Did you get it?

    You gave us, pardon the pun, much "food" for thought.

    I wish you much success in all you do. Thank you for sharing about your family and your life. Thanks for giving to us.

    Louise, you have left me some BIG shoes to fill! The bond that you've created with this wonderful community is so apparent from the heartfelt goodbye to all the replies of members reaching out to you.

    Thank you for allowing me to shadow you over the last weeks to learn your best practice and to get familiar with all of these great Members! We are sad to see you go, but share your joy in spreading your wings. :)

    I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone better and will be jumping right in...please say Hello whenever you have a chance.

    Hello there Diet Community! Here's to new friendships and diet success!
