    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,

    My doc put me on a new med 4 months ago [which I am now off of thank you> and I gained 30 of the 75 lbs I had lost over time. I count the carbohydrates and limit them, increasing fresh fruit feuit and veggies! yOUR motivation is within yhou, just as it is with in me! My doc said what matters is how I feel NOT the poundage! I have a fat picture on the fridge and also a skinny one next to it which also helps me! My Beloved is supportive which helps alot too.
    YOU are the key. If you like to go out once in a while, when you go ask for a NUTRITIONAL SHEET which has all the nutritional information. My carb limit is 45 a meal- and that is about one simple hanburger and a diet coke or ice tea plain. I am diabetic now because of the weight I carried!
