    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,

    are you going to do to keep healthy and stay on your weight loss path? I am going to:

    • Walk 45 minutes tonight while my daughter takes her piano lesson
    • Take a yoga class Saturday and Sunday
    • Visit the Farmers Market and increase my veggie intake!

    Who is next?

    ME! I'M NEXT! I am going to
    1. Continue to walk my mile in the morning, concentrating on correct posture and gait (bad hip, I used to "weeble"), and my 8 block round trip walk at night.
    2. Continue to make, if not great choices all the time, at least BETTER choices in the foods that I eat and how I prepare them
    3. Continue to be an "adjuster" instead of an "enabler", to adjust/accept things that happen, even binges, birthday cake days, etc. and NOT to enable myself by making lame excuses as to why I ate something. To accept my mistakes, then move on and away from them.

    1. Heading out in minute to walk on the local greenway. Got to get myself moving more.
    2. Swim today and tomorrow if the rain stays away.
    3. Eat fresh squash from a friend's garden and some dark green veggies. Didn't get as many greens in this week as usual.
