    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,

    I'm currently a division I college athlete but am looking to shed some extra weight (preferably around 10 pounds) by summer. I've been running around 3 miles and lifting, as well as have changed my eating habits so I am eating less and healthier for the past three weeks, but I have yet to lose any weight. My legs (my target area) seem to have gotten bigger over the past few weeks. Any advice on what I should do?

    Maybe try to determine how many calories you are taking in over a week or so. You may be consuming more calories than you estimate, even though you are eating healthier.
