    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.

    Next up, log onto the WebMD Food and Fitness Planner, input your data and get started with a sensible way to track your progress. The plan is customized to your unique make up. Don't forget you'll have to incorporate some form of physical activity as well.

    Good luck and let us know how you're doing,

    Dr. Peeke
